Joe Anttila   December 30, 2012 at 11:56am

Yeah. And shovel my tee pads. Hahaha.

Eirik Kauserud   December 30, 2012 at 3:20pm

Your pad is smelly and inappropriate.

I understand the purpose for this talk section and the extra effort is appreciated but isnt it pointless when the purpose for having a talk section on each individual course is supposed to be used for that exact purpose, if you post your score on a course why take extra steps to post it on here and not just the feed for that course where someone will for sure see it when they view that courses page or it may already be in their newsfeed if that course is in their favorites or following the discussion

Played OU yesterday. someone had kicked-off the snow from the tee pads. about 30% of them were clean, the rest were partially cleared.

Went to Holly yesterday and assumed someone had been out there since it snowed. No one had. We brought no shovel but we kicked the teepads pretty clean. If you head out here bring salt.

Hudson original 1-18 all clear and salted, shorts and longs. monster longs 1-18 all clear and salted (except #14, short tee is clear). not sure about monster shorts.

I shoveled all 18 from shorts and only 1-6 from longs at Brown park ( mary beth doyle) park. They have not been salted so be careful of ice. Pads were fine for me

Hudson- All blue are good a couple may have a rough spot but they're all in all 90%++ cleared. Reds are about 50/50 between all clear and somewhat clear with icy footprints wrecking half the pad.

The parks have governmental immunity and therefore no liability if you hurt yourself. The parks know this. Threatening parks is a poor strategy. We are damn lucky they tolerate the vandalism, littering and overt legal violations they see so often. Any course could be pulled out in an hour.

Thanks for the reply Mark. Rest assured that the email I sent was in no way threatening in any shape or form - in fact I went out of my way to be as polite and professional as possible.

Ken Mango    December 24, 2012 at 3:06pm

@ Nick.

Be carefull what you ask for, they may just choose to close the courses for the winter. Although it would be nice to have them clear the pads, even though some people do buy bag tags, I don't believe that it says on the bag tags that the course will be open year round. I think that if you choose to be active in the winter that there are hazards involved. If you get hurt it is unfortunate, but it is a risk that you took.

Thanks Ken. I've heard numbers on how much they make in golf fees before. Not sure of the reliability, but the numbers seem staggering. I don't understand why some of those dollars can't be spent on sending a shoveler with some salt out on a cart once a week for a couple hours at best.

cass not to bad... tee 9 is the worst

I sent a pretty lengthy but constructive, and informational, email to Jerry Cyr, the Park Operations Manager for Delhi, Dexter-Huron, Hudson Mills & Huron Meadows Metroparks. In a nutshell I just explained to him that I think it could be a liability to operate and charge park and dgolf fees inviting people to play winter golf, yet almost no maintenance is done to ensure the safety of the players because of the fact that little is done to maintain the tee pads during the winter. They are le ... more

Very Commendable

Phil "Puttimus Prime" Common   December 24, 2012 at 8:52pm

You def cant expect the tee pads to b clean and clear every time u go out, but i do agree that there are def extended periods of neglect. It really only pisses me off when the pads are **** yet the entire running path surrounding the course is clear and dry as a bone. Doesnt makes sense. We pay the same amount to use the park and have the additional pay to play fee.

the more information that is shared using this page, the more effective this "club" becomes. this isn't limited to A2 area courses.

um...river bends and stony are technically SE Michigan as well....don't they get a spot here as well? Or are you just talking "down river"ish

for that matter there's tens of courses around SE michigan.

Jay B INSANITY DGC   December 24, 2012 at 8:20am

Youre better of just posting on the talk section for the course youre interested in knowing about, you know me if im playing a course that has snow ill be the one cleaning the pads,and i usually post to advertise that they are safe or not

Daemon Stahlin    December 23, 2012 at 4:03pm

Indy whites are looking great. the park salted the pads. not so much at hudson. half the tees on original have ice on them.

So? are those facts your license to entitlement?

Joe Anttila   December 27, 2012 at 7:23pm

No. Your mistaking a millage for Medicaid.

Eirik Kauserud   December 27, 2012 at 11:10pm

Your misunderstanding government and public.
