Just back from round at Woodmansee and it is in need or some repair and cleanup. Most of tee signs need replacement and new acrylic cover plates. Also some have the top wood plates being loosened and ready to be taken now the top covers are gone. Course in general could use cleanup for the spring. Any plans in place by CCDG or will this need to be taken on by individuals effort again. Thank you and this should be handled as soon as possible before further damage done to course.

Woodmansee work day was a big success due to the friends of trees, ivy removal coalition, and other assorted youth groups. Sorry to say no disc golfers besides myself made it out. We owe these groups a big thanks. Some of many pictures taken. Over 1000+ tree seedlings, assorted plants, and such planted today, lets treat them nice and let them grow.

Woodmansee Course this Saturday
Friends of Trees is partnering with the City of Salem to revitalize the stream banks along Pringle Creek as it winds through this beautifully wooded park. We will be adding additional Oregon white oaks and native shrubs to the areas recently won back from a Himalayan blackberry infestation. The No Ivy Coalition will be simultaneously leading ivy removal activities in the old oak grove adjacent to the planting area. Bring your disc golf discs for after the planting, as there is a challenging course that also runs through the park!
Please arrive around 8:45am to be registered and assigned to a crew. The event will start promptly at 9:00am. We provide breakfast snacks and hot chocolate/coffee, as well as gloves, tools and guidance. Please come dressed for the weather and wearing sturdy shoes and get ready to have fun!

For information to the club Letter received from friends of trees about work at Woodmansee Hi Steve, I'm sorry it's taken me a few days to chime in here. The area we will be planting in does intersect the course near the northernmost footbridge in the park (though I'm not sure of the hole number/s 5/14? 6/15?). However, the work will not permanently affect any of the baskets or tees. That said, we will want to "close" these holes during the event. I will be pos ... more

Letter received from friends of trees about work at Woodmansee
I'm sorry it's taken me a few days to chime in here. The area we will be planting in does intersect the course near the northernmost footbridge in the park (though I'm not sure of the hole number/s 5/14? 6/15?). However, the work will not permanently affect any of the baskets or tees. That said, we will want to "close" these holes during the event. I will be posting signs next week to indicate as much, but if you have an online forum that might reach potential course users, it would be great for you to post something there. Thanks much for the offer to help out.
Also, I'm not sure if you are aware, but we will be partnering with the No Ivy Coalition in the park that day. They will be coordinating ivy removal I believe in the area just west of the north bridge, but I haven't gotten a confirmation on their targeted area/s just yet. Hopefully, this work will reduce the number of discs that get lost (and will likely turn up a few that have gone missing), and will help protect the ancient oaks from threats from this tenacious weed.
However, speaking of changes to the course, I do have a question for you. Basically, I'm wondering how you would feel (or think other course users would feel) about the young cherry tree next to the giant oak in the pictures below being removed. This is the basket for hole 2/11.
(I will try to get her pictures posted shortly)
I think this would be the right course of action, foremost, for the sake of the old oak, and secondly, for the sake of removing a nuisance species, though we would like to not negatively impact the course. We have removed the other cherries that were in the natural area next to the creek as this is a widespread nuisance tree--a non-native tree that often out-competes native trees for space and other resources (though we left 3-4 very large specimens as per the Parks department's request). I would have had the guys cut this one as well, but since it is part of the course, I wanted to check in with course users or the greenskeeper first. Are you the greenskeeper for this course? I have also recently contacted Barry Bolliver of Capitol City Disc Golf (who we've worked with at Cascades Gateway Park), but I haven't heard back from him yet. Please let me know how you think this alteration might go over. Thanks again for your offer to help at the planting and for your advice in this tree removal matter. And no need to worry about anything happening on this anytime soon. This just seemed a good time to ask the question.
Let me know what all think, I can live with it since for the betterment in the long run. Hope to see some folks to help out with this project. Thank you

Hey! I am new to Salem and I am an avid disc golf player, how would I go about getting involved with your club? I would help maintain and build courses locally in Lake Tahoe CA/NV as well as play weekly if not daily. Looking to meet some people to play with and just get involved.

Are there any plans on course improvement work at Camp Taloali between now and the LSO? Mostly interested in things such as tee pad back fill to bring level and even ground surface off the tee pad, updated and proper signage, and trail cleanup. Just like to see course in best possible shape for all playing the tournament and course at other times. Thank you for any information and willing to be involved.
