Old Avalanche Baskets

We've been told that the old Avalanche baskets may be available for public bids soon by the city, most likely as a lot, and we've been encouraged to reach out to our club members and friends. As we've discussed at previous meetings, if anyone is seriously interested in one or more of these baskets and wants to join in creating a group bid (or has questions) please email [email redacted] and we'll put one together soon. Otherwise anyone can submit their own individually once it is announced and we'll share when we know more.

We brought this up this question at one of the city parks and recreation meetings last year. They looked into it and it's well documented on the agendas and minutes that are available online. While the old club did buy those, it's up to you guys to come up with the proof of that agreemen ... more

Trying Various Alternate Tee Pad Materials at Avalanche

One of our club goals for this year was to try some various tee pad materials on a trial basis up at Avalanche to generate some feedback and improve some of the worst boxes a little bit. Rather than push for concrete tee pads which everyone might not agree on, our main focus was to help maintain and improve the existing course without doing anything permanent. We started out trying 4'x6' rubber mats (from the Leviathan course) on holes #12 and #18. Although they aren't ideal for m ... more

Concrete is the best... rubber teepads are dangerous because they are slippery as are the pavers on hole 2. saw slips on 2 and 12 wednesday! sand is safer than rubber or pavers. besides concrete I think the safest option is carpet.

Thanks for the feedback Chris! We're adding concrete to the overall proposal for next year. Note: #2 will be better once we actually finish adding gravel so we can put wood chips around it, helping to keep the dirt off the pavers.
