Is this just a one time thing? I thought picnic was gone for good?

Scott White   January 31, 2013 at 11:42am

Park is saying they will leave them in for the time being and pull them once the weather starts getting better. Picnic holes 9-16 is gone forever, but at least we get these 10 in.

I've only played Independence once, but I loved it even though it was under construction at the time. So this is an entirely different course? What is still under construction and how many holes are playable now?

Mike "Papa Par" Even   January 31, 2013 at 11:50am

10 holes are playable. The Park installed a water park where holes 9-16 were located, so that is what Scott means by their death. As of right now you can play 30 holes at Indy. 20 on the Chuck D and 10 for the Picnic course. Hole 1 starts by the main office

Thanks Mike! I would love to warm up by playing a full 18-hole Picnic Course and finish with all 24 Chuck holes... Some day!

You are more welcome. Unless the local 101 can convince the park to find a spot for holes 9-16 on the Picnic, those will forever be lost to the disc golf gods. 13-16 on Chuck D are supposed to be done this Spring/Summer. Water Park is to be completed 100% first, then finalize the pulled holes

Wicked. Great news. I love living within 20 minutes of The Isle, Kensington, Rolling, Willow, Hudson, and an improved Indy. Disc heaven.

any word on how long they will be in? did they put chainstars on the north picnic since most of "my" baskets are on the Chuck B now?

Mike "Papa Par" Even   February 1, 2013 at 11:31am

If you scroll up Pete, Mr. White states they will remain until old man winters starts lifting his grip on the cold shores of Indy Lake. So what....a few days since it will be like 90 next week :P

The Picnic course is like a zombie. You keep thinkin it's dead, and it even loses limbs, but it just keeps coming back. chaaaaaaiiiiiiinnnnnssss

Nick Pacific   February 1, 2013 at 11:36am

Looks like there is already a layout for it on DGscene - Picnic course, Beach Side 10 holes

Pete is the MAN!
