The reason there is no one at the gate this time of year is because they cant afford to staff it.

You are correct Dan, once you are out in the back of the course it's game on time, but, I have been seeing more of a casuals presence when there is no attendant. Summer time they have someone at the gate all day because the lake & water park open up, they are collecting $$$$ for the spike in activity. So it will tapper off soon as it gets warmer, but Rolling has someone at the gate almost all the time, no reason Washtenaw County cant get someone in the booth over at Indy ;)

The park has been notified (if they didn't already know) and hopefully they can get someone out in the booth over the next week or so. This aggression will not stand.



Let's try to get an ID on this "RIP" tagger, or at least a vehicle/license plate. This reminds me of a similar saga out in k-zoo, with the "poop" tagger. They eventually identified his vehicle, found his facebook and get him to stop without involving the authorities. Let's hope for a similar resolution here.

Are you guys sure it's only when there's no attendant? Even when there is, there's nobody back on the course to keep people in check. I'd suggest, if you want to volunteer a couple hours, do it by walking around the course, keeping your eyes open for people that are doing it, then reporting them (and their cars).

Past week or so it's been weird out there Nancy, I concur. Might be out there tomorrow, I was going to pop into the office the next time I was there to alert the park staff as to what's happening when there's no attendant. A huge bummer, especially with brooms and signs getting trashed :/

What's up with all the destruction on the course!?!?!?!? Broken brooms, more ignorant tagging (r.i.p.'s are meant for gravestones) and on #11, the pine tree on the fairway was snapped off at the base (no giggity) and is laying in the fairway. I don't understand peoples inability to raise their spawn correctly. What's the possibility of establishing a volunteer program for folks to work the booth? I'd gladly give up a couple hours to insure less destruction to the course.

The new 6 hole loop is designed and being worked on by the park. Before they install the baskets they have to remove metal debris from a few areas in the new land. The new holes should be ready to play by mid/end May.
