Regarding the reversed 11/10 as 17/18 - just pull the 11 tee to the north, putting the trees back in play. you can still make it blind, even scoot the basket closer to the trees.

as for the new 18, you could move the tee box closer to the 17 basket (as described above) and pull the 18 basket in the "no mans land" between the switchback road.

Just throwing stuff out there from looking at the aerial. You've walked it, so you'd have a better feel.

going to walk through right now again looking closer at the back and getting the map right if possible. Thrying to find a 12 alternative while leaving 11 intact and getting to 13 without a bike hike. Might have it hased out soon. suggestions welcome.

the map isn't great at showing which ridges would make shots blind or not. feel free to paint a map up and email it to me if you can;t describe your idea.

Going to walk with eric tom afternoon if anyone is interested. and by walk I mean throw discs.

I went by Sister City at about 3pm today and here are my initial thoughts:

Negatives:

-I played 7 holes before some workers asked me to leave so they could close the gate. I had my whole bag, but only threw my firebird and putter. I was within 15ft and "birdied" every hole (cone).

-I think the first 7 holes are almost easier than ross park

-I don't think anyones disc golf game (skill level) is going to improve by playing that first part of the course.

-Do they close the gate in the winter?

-ross park was pretty much made for beginners, so we already have one beginner course in town.

Positives:

-I liked hole 1 even though it's short

-Hole 8 looks fun, if it's the hole on the corner of the dirt hill with the gap

-The park is nice

-It looks like there is a lot of space for the back 9

That being said, it's great we're getting another course in Pocatello. I am trying to keep my input to a minimum on course design, because i'm not sure if this next summer will be my last in Pocatello or not. The people that live here and are planning on living here for a long period of time should have the most authority on course design. James out

that's good feedback james. 1 is easy if you're got a flick. most folks don't. I thought hole 2 was tougher than anything at ross. takes a big spike hyzer or laser beam forehand. the hyzer line lands on a slight downhill slope. # 3 is all about the putt, but the line there is no gimmie. 4 and 5 are fairly easy. 6 should be fairly tough. the big russian olive gaurds the backhand lines. forehands have to hit a gap or go bi annie. 7 should be very tough. If you can park it through the trees with a 400' forehand you are having a good round. 8 and 9 are both short but interesting. * is pretty gimmie except the prevailing winds are head/right to left and do crazy things.

I wouldn't expect anyone to average 7 down. I'd be happy to play a round with you any time to see if things stayed in place.

I didn't know the gate was closing so early. not a bad walk to start on 10 or 11 and play or go to the back lot and play from 15.

The back will be harder. lots of 400+ holes but fairly open lines to them. some OB for a few holes. Pretty fun so far.

I agree we already have a beginner course in town but it is crowded and abused. we needed a few holes scout groups could play and not get slaughtered on. there's always the back 9.

I talked to the parks guys today. the road closure was temporary while they were patching the biggest rut in the road.

Should re-open today or tomorrow and remain open until heavier snow comes or the first of December.

I knew the gate was closing for the road work. I was just wondering about closing it in the winter because i thought it would suck to walk to hole 1. Sounds like its not too far of a walk to the back 9 though so thats good. Also i bet that road is slick or covered in snow all winter.

Yeah i didn't even really think about how most people would probably take different lines then the ones i took. I might have been fortunate on some of the holes too. I'm not saying i could shoot that low every time.

and yes Lance i would like to meet up with someone and "play" all of the holes. Someone that knows where they are going because i was a little confused at first.
I could meet up:
Friday before 4:00pm
Saturday after the Ace Race
Sunday anytime works

Wendell -

If I remember correctly, as you move your cursor around in Google Earth, the elevation is shown at the bottom of the window. I usually just write down the pad elevation then look at the basket elevation.

I will be out later this afternoon, I think with my son, checking some layout options for the back nine. Razz I know it is short notice but it would be nice to play with anyone else who is interested. Any takers? What time works for you?
