On the info tab I did course corrections about a week ago and nothing's changed. I think Matt has tried too.

Any one know if the new course layout has been submitted for posting scores?

The back 9 has the potential with more clearing and time to make this course the best i've played in NE Ohio. Awesome work to who all was involved. I was never a big fan of this course mainly because of ridiculously long and lots of trees and in the fair ways. There are still small trees that need and should go on the front but the back makes up for alot. It was hard playing through a jungle today but well worth it. There are a couple holes however i feel could've been make into two holes. Had fun and would love to play again.

Outstanding work, and thank you to everyone who helped get the back nine in! Even so, let's plan on a work day on Saturday Jun. 11, 8:30 to 11:00, and play 18 afterward.

Work day, Sat. June 4 (8:30 - 11:30). The focus will be on setting tee pads and signs on the back nine and moving the brush piles to widen #16's fairway. Stick around afterward to play a round!

i worked a couple hours after everyone left today. sorry that I wasn't there @ 8:30 like we planned. But I wanted to attend the dedication of Schneider park DGC. I don't know if anyone knows this or not, but if anyone sees Matt Dungan or Carl Peterson down at Portage Lakes or any where else for that matter, thank them. If it wasn't for thier hunger to get this DGC completed, this could of been a 5 year project. We still have a little to go. But I wanted to THANK MATT and CARL ... more

I say we start by cleaning up the fallen tree on 6 (that sucker is huge!) since it makes that hole unplayable. Then we'll go from there. See you guys in the morning.

We have a work day on Saturday, May 28, from 8:30 to 12:00, with a round of golf afterward.

Areas that still need work include: Move brush piles to widen #16. Take down marked trees on #9, 14 and 15. Cut up fallen trees on #18 and 6. Dig basket holes on #14, 15 and #16 (the State will do the others, once it stops raining). Set the bricks on the back 9 tees.
We have enough concrete for about 4 baskets. If you can pick up broken bags at Home Depot/Lowes, etc. for 1/2 price, that would help. We need about 15 more 60-80 lb. bags.

Cool, I'll bring mine also

I'm bringing my portable and Matt might bring his so we can play the first few of the back in succession.

We have a work day on Saturday May 21, from 8:30 to 12:00, with a round of golf afterward. If you haven't seen the back nine, I think you will be impressed by the potential, especially #14 through #18. These are going to be 5 great closing holes!

It's really amazing, just what the few volenteers have accomplished with the amount of work done at Portage Lakes DGc. Only the people who has done the work can really understand. I'm so proud and blessed to be working with these people. We're so close. I can't wait to play the whole course insterad of working in the morning and playing a round afterwards. There's a lot of good people in this area that all mean well that are getting slammed. Unless your part of the movement, stand aside and let the movers and shakers do their thing. And then peace and harmony will surround us all.

Thanks erock216 for asking the moderator to delete the thread, thanks EW for backing up erock216. I'm not going to even open up the thread because it doesn't matter. I know we're in good graces with the State park dept with the work that we've accomplished so far, because that's what Bill and Steve reconfirmed with us the last time those two talked to the volenteers of the installation of this DGc). Are we going to upset an individual (s) with the installation of thi ... more

No feelings hurt. Just sayin. I did read the thread erock referred to and it wasn't very pleasant. The thread essentially we t on to accuse the dgers of trashing the place and "clear cutting" the fairways. I am glad to hear that both Steve and Bill have said things are good with the park. I know how much work is going on down there, we are all blessed for the efforts. Sorry I missed you in Wooster also, it like you would have handed me my booty yet again. Congrats on the hot round and the PR .
