A big thank you for the repair work on basket #8. From what I can put together that thanks goes out to Barry B for his efforts. Stepping up again Barry puts another gold star next to your name in my book.

Woodmansee work day was a big success due to the friends of trees, ivy removal coalition, and other assorted youth groups. Sorry to say no disc golfers besides myself made it out. We owe these groups a big thanks. Some of many pictures taken. Over 1000+ tree seedlings, assorted plants, and such planted today, lets treat them nice and let them grow.

Found yet another disc today on hole 8/17. This is getting ridiculous! :) No name or number - looks brand new. My son will be glad to keep it if nobody can identify it.
Rick Saffeels February 17 at 7:42pm
Jim Costello is to be given an award for the finding and return of not one, but two of my discs a month apart. Yes I should keep better track of my discs, but it's a great community of people who can return discs that aren't theirs. Keep up the good work to all those returning discs to their rightful owners!

Hole 8 basket is in need of repair. Not sure what happened but the basket is being propped up by sticks at the moment

Letter received from friends of trees about work at Woodmansee Hi Steve, I'm sorry it's taken me a few days to chime in here. The area we will be planting in does intersect the course near the northernmost footbridge in the park (though I'm not sure of the hole number/s 5/14? 6/15?). However, the work will not permanently affect any of the baskets or tees. That said, we will want to "close" these holes during the event. I will be posting signs next week to indic ... more
Letter received from friends of trees about work at Woodmansee
I'm sorry it's taken me a few days to chime in here. The area we will be planting in does intersect the course near the northernmost footbridge in the park (though I'm not sure of the hole number/s 5/14? 6/15?). However, the work will not permanently affect any of the baskets or tees. That said, we will want to "close" these holes during the event. I will be posting signs next week to indicate as much, but if you have an online forum that might reach potential course users, it would be great for you to post something there. Thanks much for the offer to help out.
Also, I'm not sure if you are aware, but we will be partnering with the No Ivy Coalition in the park that day. They will be coordinating ivy removal I believe in the area just west of the north bridge, but I haven't gotten a confirmation on their targeted area/s just yet. Hopefully, this work will reduce the number of discs that get lost (and will likely turn up a few that have gone missing), and will help protect the ancient oaks from threats from this tenacious weed.
However, speaking of changes to the course, I do have a question for you. Basically, I'm wondering how you would feel (or think other course users would feel) about the young cherry tree next to the giant oak in the pictures below being removed. This is the basket for hole 2/11.
(I will try to get her pictures posted shortly)
I think this would be the right course of action, foremost, for the sake of the old oak, and secondly, for the sake of removing a nuisance species, though we would like to not negatively impact the course. We have removed the other cherries that were in the natural area next to the creek as this is a widespread nuisance tree--a non-native tree that often out-competes native trees for space and other resources (though we left 3-4 very large specimens as per the Parks department's request). I would have had the guys cut this one as well, but since it is part of the course, I wanted to check in with course users or the greenskeeper first. Are you the greenskeeper for this course? I have also recently contacted Barry Bolliver of Capitol City Disc Golf (who we've worked with at Cascades Gateway Park), but I haven't heard back from him yet. Please let me know how you think this alteration might go over. Thanks again for your offer to help at the planting and for your advice in this tree removal matter. And no need to worry about anything happening on this anytime soon. This just seemed a good time to ask the question.
Let me know what all think, I can live with it since for the betterment in the long run. Hope to see some folks to help out with this project. Thank you

Found an unmarked Roc3 on #9/18's fairway this last Saturday. I'll reluctantly return it to it's rightful owner if identified. I'll happily add it to my arsenal if not! :)
Rick Saffeels January 5 at 7:51pm
I found a Crank that might have been a off shot from hole 17 or 9's fairway. Message me the color and stamp so I can get it back to you :)

Haven't been out there since before the series of stormy weather in the last month or so. Woods took some hits. Tree down on 4 at top of the hill, 2 branches down on 9, and other small limbs down around the park. Plus they are doing a restoration along the creek. Needless to say Woods looks different right now.
Steve Moore November 16 at 8:37pm
Anybody want to meet up tomorrow, Monday the 17th, for a round at Woodmansee. Start time can be flexible on my end. give a holler and what time would work out for you.

Yo!....I lost my yellow star roadrunner on the last temp hole playing back to parking lot last night in the dark....would love to get some help from some of you locals now that its daylight....thanks in advance!

So is there no one from CCDG willing to answer up to simple question being asked for the good of us all? What is, if there is one, the plan for repair and upkeep of which local courses, regarding fixing needed items, finishing what needs to be finished, and getting courses in shape for this winter coming fast? I do not understand why some much problem on this topic when it concerns all of us that play the sport. Time to work together and grow the group and get things done, not work againest each other as it seems to be now. Thank you.
Steve Moore September 18 at 10:34pm
Anybody up for a morning round at Woodmanse tomorrow friday the 19th? Time somewhat flexible but thinking around 8 or 8:30 start no later then 9.
Steve Moore September 16 at 4:08pm
I will not be able to attend Tuesday 2's tonight but would like someone to confirm if the tent camp is still set up behind hole 1 long position just across the creek and hole 2 basket area by creek. Also how is course looking since I quit my work there for time being. Any work done at all yet? Thank you and have a good evening all.
Steve Moore September 13 at 7:22pm
As the days get shorter and fall and winter approches, I am putting out a call to CCDG and if they have any plans in place for the Woodmansee course as far as repairs and getting ready for winter weather. They should already be aware of needed items and general disc public should be aware if they have plans in place for the course. If not then I guess I will need to take charge again and see what can be done at this time. If so then will be happy for any and all assistance. Thank you and see what happens.
And yes I have tried to communicate with them with out much response.

Stuck an Innova Leopard in a tree mid fairway to 9.
Easy to spot (wht). If you need an extra driver, knock it out and its yours!

Lost my lime green D3 today on hole 2. It went straight out from the pad and a little left. I think it ended up in some bushes but my friend and I could not find it. It has 2014 stamped on the front in purple and the (0) is a star. It does not have my name or number on it yet. If you find it please contact me on here. Thanks.

A note for whoever is doing upkeep on Woodmansee baskets. The inner ring on 9th basket is broken loose and needs welding back in place. Noticed it yesterday (Monday 28 July) when I had my treatment group out on the course.
And a huge thank you to Steve and anyone else who has helped get Woods back into the current condition.
