THIS IS A NOTICE TO EVERYONE, Wickes woods baskets have been pulled for winter. They have put out highlighted posts instead, but the gates are closed and you will have to walk from the road if you should choose to go here.

Don't get me wrong wickes is good, but it could have been GREAT!

If the trees would have been cut in beginning like the course should be, then people wouldn't be cutting them down! Said by the PDGA a hole should have a Fairway that's defined. Like holes 2,3,5,7,8,10,12,13,14,16,17 and most of 18 the rest of the holes have No defined fairway. That makes your shots luck on those holes. A good course should be where every hole has a lane you can make it to the landing zone or basket in your shot with skill not luck. If my disc is flying great down the lane and still has to get lucky to be by the basket then that's a bad hole. I Speek for all real golfers!

The fewer trees and less challenge doesn't make it better either, though. Either way, if the township removes some trees it won't make that much of a difference. I just hate playing a course and seeing that people decided to take it into their own hands and rip trees down. Bums me out, man.

Well said ryan.... We should see a few tree removals every year, i would say give it about 3-5 years.

Yeah,

A big thanks for those in charge at Wickes Woods for leaving the baskets in a little longer.

if the more trees the more challenging go put a basket 500 feet away from you in a thick pine tree forest and start hucking. See if that challenge makes it a better hole. Point being the more trees and "challenge" doesn't necessarily make it better.

Sorry for being so blunt about my opinion, Justin and Jakkob. I shouldn't have said that thing about growing balls. I don't care nearly as much about your silly insults as I do about trying to make sure people don't keep ****ing with Wickes. There's already too many scumbags littering, destroying, and vandalizing the course... I don't see how making a course easier makes it better. I'd prefer to keep it challenging (but it's the Township's course, not ours). People don't play disc golf because it's easy.

@angel gilbert....dx plastic is perfectly fine for women sometimes for men to an extent but that guy is obviously someone who just started and knows nothing about disc golf,im friends with all the guys that had any part in making the course better and even my buddy lammi thinks some trees could still be removed but even with them there the course is still excellent and in my opinion it easily rivals sleepy nto saying anything against dx cuz i throw a little its good for rollers but i really dont like beginners who complain because someone trys to make a course a little better

loved playing this course for my birthday...well put adam trees make a course and personally i liked how the course was i dont think any trees need to be removed. Quoting Justin Rogers: "well said buddy no wonder that idiot only has 4 firends no doubt he just started and prolly with a bag full crappy of dx plastic! And on another note good job to you jacob and any other people helping make wickes better!" So are you implying that if someone has a bunch of DX plastic in their bag they just starte ... more
