Portland Oregon Metro Area Players   January 22, 2010 at 2:56am

Greenway DGC is out...

We here at P.O.M.A.P. have tried and fought many a battle to save greenway... we've accomplished the addition of trash cans at each tee box and the addition of porrta pottys... also to keep this course from being pulled/removed.

however sadly w/ the amount of damage and disrespect to the course from unknown people... its still on a downward fall... the baskets have been tared, damaged, and even pulled out of the ground... i found #9's basket thrown into part of the marsh/protected habitat area last summer...

the city held a meeting to remove the course... the course was saved but yet no changes have been made to install #9 again... which would led to it's 4th location... the course does not flow and as a result of the missing #9 basket locals have an alt tee back towards #6 basket to make the 9th hole. thus causing more problems w/ the surrounding residents & non d-golf users of the park.

the course shares a natural wild life habitat and plenty of other activities too... yet no mando flight paths have been established as talked about in the meeting... the porta pottys have been pulled and people still deface that course/park... this is not good!!!

the once regulars even go to a different course to play when given a chance... it's a shame as greenway falls in the heart of the whole PDX metro area's courses... did you know that you can play almost any course with in an 11-15 mile radius from this course?

i speak on my own my words above... im done fighting for this course... i amongst many people have stood up to the difficulties in keeping the course alive... in my words fair well greenway it was fun...

i ask that someone else such as brody and the other regulars to please take on the battle... make this cursed course/park into something that all can enjoy... i'll back them fully by myself and im positive P.O.M.A.P. will do the same...
