Wow...I was surprised to see this response. Hopefully they grade both roads in the next few days!

Thank you for bringing this concern to our attention. A Service Request has been entered today and our District Foreman Mike Mastie will investigate.

Nearly half the roads in Washtenaw County are dirt (over 700 miles worth), so in the spring there is always a lot of work for the road commission. I will say that it does eventually get graded every year. Good call on being the 'squeaky wheel' though hopefully that puts Jennings on the top of their priority list. ;)

I unfortunately I live right off of Barker, so for me to go around is a waste of energy, but great suggestion Scott. I would recommend that route as well. When I play Bandy, I shot up to the Indy the same way. Indy is just a short jog off of N. Territorial from that direction. I was pretty stern with the WCRC and I plead my case as it's hurting revenue not only for the park but for Washtenaw County. Maybe a light bulb will go off above some managers head and they'll send a truck to grade.

Take N. Territorial to Jennings. It is a much shorter drive on the dirt roads. That is usually what I do unless I know the roads to be in good shape.

Just a heads up to anyone heading out to Indy......the road conditions getting to and from the course are (pardon my French) FUCKING HORRIBLE!!!! As a resident of Washtenaw County not only am I pissed my tax dollars are failing miserably but I was down right embarrassed. The condition of Kearny Road & Jennings Road are the worst I have ever seen. Parts of Jennings Road are almost washed out & flooded. If you take Kearny (between Barker & Whitmore Lake Rd) there are pot holes that will swallo ... more

If you take Kearny (between Barker & Whitmore Lake Rd) there are pot holes that will swallow your car. I live a stones throw away and it took my 20 mins each way because the roads are that bad. I have a call and email into WCRC, but I doubt it will do any good. If they respond, I will post it here

We played Saturday.. White tees are all clear, blacks are mostly snow/ice covered. The pond on 6 is back. It was very playable.

Would love to join you Matt, but I can't make it out until later in the day :/

I'll be at Indy at noon shoveling pads. Cash game? Rivalries? Anyone coming along? Look for Jantilla smeared on a disc? Where's Waldo?

Joe lost a disc with "Jantilla smeared on top"? Was Joe spouting off (so to speak) too close to his frisbee collection?
Joe Anttila March 6, 2011 at 6:23pm
Lost a Star Max with Janttila smeared on the top. Last known location, left side of the fairway 2/3 way up on hole 12 picnic. Any help greatly appreciated.

Anyone played Indy today? Debating on heading on out in the next few hours, but that wind chill is a making me re-think things :/
Mike "Papa Par" Even March 1, 2011 at 6:39pm
Just a heads up....Course has been played to the point that snow is packed down to ice. Holes 13 & 18 are flooded and the ice forming is weak. I only played the quick nine, so I imagine the back part of the course is roughly the same.
Matt "The Spider" Swider February 22, 2011 at 9:56am
Alright, I'll be heading to Indy at noon to shovel pads.
Matt "The Spider" Swider February 18, 2011 at 9:18am
This course is probably in the best shape. No tees underwater. Good drainage. Pond on hole six should be refilling shortly.
