How muddy is it right now?

Dubs are starting back up this Saturday 4/16/2011. Not officially yet (TBD when that start is) But I'll be out there running the show as usual. Bobby Mac should be holding it down for me today, (4/9) even though I expect the turnout to be pretty darn small what with the Kensington Tourney today.

Cmon out and holler @ us! We still have the 26 hole loop going, most likely going to be mostly longs as we've been playing shorts all winter long.

Normal routine, pick chips for partners, cali flip $5 extra, we vote to decide the format before we head out.

So what's happening this Saturday?

Nice suggestive selling Scott ;)

Yes sadly March 15th ish is the schedule closure of the orange 18.. Same time as last year. November 15th ish is the scheduled re-opening.

Of course you can play the picnic in much more ideal conditions at either Loco Sixo (registration now open) or Union Strikes in October when the full 18 is installed for one weekend only.

That's ok though.....No need now to storm the beach, we can take woods. Let's blow it up pirates!!!


Matt "The Spider" Swider    March 18, 2011 at 8:41am

First time they've ever pulled Picnic before the ice melted on the lake, but at least it's only the north sides' 10 hole loop and they left south sides' 8 hole loop.

The beach side just got pulled, we found out after the long walk! Gamble center side is still in.


Corey Kieft    March 17, 2011 at 4:48pm

When does the Picnic course get pulled?


Mike "Papa Par" Even    March 15, 2011 at 8:19pm

Either the Local 101 or the park has started some maintenance. Nice fresh patch of wood chips between Hole's 3/13 & 4/12. Cheers! White Tee Hole #4, #7 and a few others have potential to become flooded being at the bottom of a hill.


Matt "The Spider" Swider    March 11, 2011 at 10:23am

I'll be shoveling pads at Indy at noon, blacks and whites.


Matt "The Spider" Swider    March 9, 2011 at 7:55am

I come up Merril to Valentine to Jennings. A little less on the potholes at least, but yeah, Jennings


Joe Arnet    March 8, 2011 at 8:10pm

Lol, that is a automatic canned response. If you want to get anything done you need someone's direct email addy or phone #.
And if you think that road is bad I can name 5 more that are way worse. As scott said, there are tons of dirt roads in washtenaw and many get quite F'd up.


g lane    March 8, 2011 at 6:23pm

stop whining


Scott White    March 8, 2011 at 4:34pm

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

Subject: RE: Dirt roads around the boarder, Kearny Road & Jennings Road (near Whitmore Lake)

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. ;)


Mike "Papa Par" Even    March 8, 2011 at 9:36am

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.
