Yea it was my first time on the course today and walkin on the edge lookin for my disc, I noticed them whizzin past my head and when i realized how close i was to a hive i almost crapped myself. Did not realize they were honeybees though. Ive had bad experiences stumbling onto hives before. But i loved the course and will play there again anytime :)

Thanks for the heads up Derek, but these are in fact honey bees and are not aggressive. If you leave them alone they will not be getting any part of your ass. This hive is well documented and known throughout the Indy Lake community.

CAUTION ON HOLE 5!!! Left edge of the fairway about 50 ft or so from the pin theres a big dead tree with a massive beehive inside... You can see the traffic of bees goin in and out as u walk up the fairway. If ur walkin the left edge close to the pin watch out they will get ur ass!!

That's old news son! Mr. White was saying last night the new holes are close to going in and hole 16 will be epic! But yes, 13-16 will be down awhile

That is my buddy's Magnet. There are number of us on the scene that are friends with Zak. I can grab it from you, or I am sure some others might be in touch with you :)

Earth movers + disc golf = lots of options to try out. Can they dig a few pot bunkers as well? I've always thought a nice hole would be a good hazard to add to a course. Thanks for the update, Fortch.

Because of the new water park, the park is taking a bunch of the earth they removed from the old Picnic area (holes 9 - 11) and moving it to Chuck D. #16. They asked us to help them essentially terraform the land with tons of earth. Hole #16 is totally different now. It has two giant mounds where it used to be flat. The giant mounds effectively create a wall on the right side of 13's fairway. Hole #15's slope has also been altered. #14 has will not be effected. All of this should be do ... more

You guys are great, thanks for the quick feedback. I am excited to here of new holes, that is fantastic. Guess I will wait a few weeks to head out to I Lake. I am sad that I never got to play Picnic.

Yup. Sorry Steve. Picnic is a thing of the past.

Was out there this morning to mark the new locations for Holes A - F tee pads. The basket sleeves are set in concrete, grass seed has been put down. Now all were waiting for is the debris removal which is supposed to start early next week. There is s bunch of scrap metal, refrigerators, and other random **** buried in a few spots out there that need to be dug up and removed.

Then it's just a waiting game for the grass to take root. Pray for rain!

BTW, the new hole #16 is crazy sweet.

Picnic Course is no more Steve :( They are installing a new waterpark kind of area where a number of the holes used to be, so it was pulled earlier this for good. Chuck D is missing pins 13-16 right now because of the construction, however, the rumor is the new 6 holes go in end of this month :)

Hey guys, I have not played the picnic course yet, is it still in the ground and playable? Thinking about heading over there this weekend.
