big thanks goes out to scotty v for coming out today w a chain saw. we got a lot accomplished. most all of the poison sumac i wanted to remove is gone. notably on hole 1 right side of the fairway, hole 3 had about a dozen HUGE bushes we removed, and hole 9 and 8 also had some removed. ill be taking out the rest of it along the creek on 8's side. also the giant tree that fell in the storm a few days ago and draped across 9's fairway, we cut that down and chopped it up. things are in motion ... more

I just uploaded an updated aerial map for the course. I can update the tee signs as well with the better pics. Let me know if there are any changes from the original design so I can revise it.

Hey there Neil.....I can bring out chainsaw and a weedwhacker and help out for a few hours on Sunday..What are the chances of getting you out there earlier? I have plans in the late afternoon and would only be of some use earlier than later. Plus, I 'd like to get a round of two in also....I'm think 10 am?? They are calling for showers in the afternoon as well. Though that doesn't really mean any in Michigan.. Whatcha think???

Neil Duffey   July 3 at 11:44am

i could do 10, id have to double check w the misses, but i don't see why not. thanks man.

Neil Duffey    July 3 at 3:31am

im in need of a few hands to help out on the course. this sunday should be a good day to get some things done, but i a in diet need of a chainsaw or two, and also a weed whip/brush hog out there. if you have either or all of those tools, we could really use your help! if not, then bring gloves, hand clippers and bug spray. we can get something done out there regardless. say noon? sound good? let me know if you can make it. if no one replies, then i will consider it a no go. thanks gang.

Hey Kevin, TD Neil Duffey's playing in a tourney right now so I'll answer for him. If you're referring to the fundraiser on July 20th, I'm pretty sure that saying you'll be there is enough. Try to leave a comment on the talk tab: http://www.discgolfscene.com/tournaments/Ira_Township_DGC_fundraiser_2014/talk .... and I'll see you there, too. Neil will add you to the players list asap.

How are course conditions right now? Will the recent rain flood any of the holes?

Neil Duffey   June 20 at 1:52am

the course might be a little soggy, but it won't be flooded... however, i was out there the other day and the grass needs to be cut. w/ the new league starting this coming wednesday at 630(hope you can make it) ill have to get them out to cut it asap.

A LOT of changes are in the works. I met w the two officials this past weekend and discussed at length, my goals and plans for the course. This year, I am planning to add, in order of importance to the two as well as my self: a main course signage display w/ posting board(similar to what stony, fire fighters, or brys park have) Concrete full length tee pads, and improving or replacing the baskets so that they are up to date and ample in the chain department. also in the plans is an additional ... more

thank you very much donny, i hope i don't let you down!

Scotty V    April 16 at 3:42pm

Guys, who is responsible for maintenance of this course? Cause I sure would like to get out there with a chainsaw and clean up a little bit!! Have a giant double ash tree fallen over one of the tee pads and just some general clean up out there would be gr8! How is dealing with the twp. on getting some improvements done out there?? but nonetheless.... AWESOME driving only 7 minutes to throw a round real fast!!

I'm trying to get in contact w the city. I'm sending out an email in a few mins. I'm running the ace race there this year on sept 20th (find it in the tournaments section!) and id like to get this park improved if not expanded. from what i understand, it isn't maintained often. id be more than happy to meet up w you and head out there to take care of the downed trees. lets set a day?

Scotty V    April 3 at 3:12pm

Guys, I plan on heading out to Firefighters on Sunday for the Strokes for strokes tourny..I would luv to head out earlier and stop by and check this course out for a pre 9 hole warm up... Anyone interested in hookin up out there and showing me the ropes of this place?? Also, if ya plan/want to head out to Firefighters from there too I'll be more than glad to get ya there too!

park next to the firestation and township offices, course starts right behind them. bring waterproof boots if you go. it takes a while for the water to recide on that clay. good luck man. ill get down there in a few weeks.

Neil Duffey   April 4 at 1:30am

played 18 holes today w some friends. the grass cutting was a great surprise and now i see your message don. could actually find a few tee pads lol. any way, i found a disc on 5, tell me what it is and we'll get it back to ya. my friend also lost her brand spanking new neon yellow star sidewinder on 9, but its like, in the corner of the woods to the right of the tee pad and other side of the creek, and near the parking lot. it was thick and we helped her for 45 mins to no avail. if you find it, text her. she said shed repay the findee. be gentleman.

donny v   September 4 at 7:37am

hey neil. cool. they should have one basket #10 left. supposed to be a practice basket near hole 1 prob in that area 50feet left of long#1. its a little bumpy for mower but is drier spot during wet season. course gets wet and clay makes it bad drainage in many spots

Neil Duffey   September 5 at 11:44pm

i saw that it said theres a practice area but i couldnt see anything. if i have a weed whacker still, ill bring it along next time im out there and clear away the area.

donny v    August 30 at 9:25pm
