WSUV 18 - Hole Course

Any WSUV Students on this Forum?

There is a group of golfers that would really like to see a quality 18 hole course go in at WSUV. This property is perfect for a full, destination style 18 holes. But a WSUV enrolled student is needed to help us achieve this goal. It's gonna be a lot of work, and we feel this person should be willing to:

A) Stay enrolled in WSUV to the end of course approval and installation if possible. But keeping in mind courses can take time to finish.

B) Be willing to join a team of dedicated & experienced course developers and function as a team player.

C) Help us to reach out to other WSUV students and form a group of students who wants to make this happen.

We are willing to work with you each step of the way to make sure to present a professional, knowledgeable, and organized approach to the college, while avoiding the common pitfalls. We have some of the best people behind us, and have helped build some great courses in this area. All we need is YOU!

Reasons we believe this project will be successful:

1) Parking and structure is there and ready to go.

2) The property is excellent for a disc golf course, we could utilize the miles of walking trails and beautiful setting to make this course great.

3) The location is very convenient to a large population of disc golf players. 5 minutes from I-5 and I-205 exits. The next closest 18 hole courses in Washington being Lucky Mudd and North Bonneville, both approximately an hour away.

4) WSUV could support a Collegiate Disc Golf Team as potentially one of the first organized sporting teams at WSUV.

Josh D? Where did you get this info? Tell me more!

This has been a plan for a while. The crux is finding a serious student who is willing to help us. The board will listen to the students more readily than outside groups. If your just cracking jokes send me a pm, I want serious responses please. Shay, what have you done to grow the sport lately? How about helping grow the sport you play everyday?

Great meeting today with the head of Student Recreation at WSUV. If one current WSUV student can contact me, we can guide them through the easy and free step of creating a club. Out of the 3000+ student body currently attending we would need just 6-8 to form a official WSUV DG Club. From there it ... more

Not yet, still searching for that elusive student. Any ideas how to find them I'm open.

Kyle Rakoz   April 13, 2013 at 12:14pm

I know an alumni adjunct Professor. I don't know if that will work but I'll ask him today.
