Looking sponsors to have concrete tees for the Beast

Course conditions, opinions and observations

Looking sponsors to have concrete tees for the Beast

Postby paul2432 » Sun Aug 26, 2012 11:55 am

With the super dry summer we've had, this may be the best and only time we have a chance to get concrete tees for the Beast. These would be for the pro tees. same size as Beaver Islands'. 12' ft by 5'. Cost would be between $100 and $125 with your name on the tee sign and enternal gratitude from me. : )

Holes 1, 13, 14 and 18 are already taken. Who else may be interested? The park manager wants to see what kind of interest there is and then we may see concrete out there sometime this fall.

thanks!

Paul

Mike,

At this point, hold onto your money until we get the approval of the district manager. We're close with that but no need to send money until we get the final approval. My guess is that the checks will be made out the New York State Natural Heritage Fund and likley mailed to the park. But I'll have a definitive answer for as soon as I know more. Thanks again for the sponsorship! We only have nine holes left to go.

Ryan,

That would be awesome. Thank you very much! I'll list the available still holes later tonight, but again thank you. That's a great gesture.

Ryan,

Here are the remaining holes: 4, 5, 7, 9, 10, 11, 15, and 17.

Out of these, I personally would go with either 5 or 9 first. 9 needs some work but will be "tee worthy" : ) by next spring.

thanks again! Paul

Ryan,

Thanks for the compliment and making me come up with a hole to pick : )

Here's what I'm thinking - GRDGC takes hole 9 and I'll get the NRDG to take hole 10 (I hope). So symbolically it brings the two clubs together. Kinda cool, kinda cheesy. But whatever.
BTW - I have not heard much from state parks, so not sure if this is going to happen this year. Either way - I will keep you posted.

Thanks again for everything!

Paul that sounds good. I don't mind the cheesy factor.

Even if it doesn't happen this year, just let me know. With the course being where it is, I feel the GRDGC should and will continue to offer support.

Thanks!

Ryan, (And everyone else that reads this)

The project is a go for this year! I got word today from the park manager. Is there anyone else that may want to consider sponsoring a hole? I think we have six holes left. Anyone else at all interested?

Either way, I really appreciate the club's support. Thank you Ryan and company and also to Mike. There should be concrete in the ground well before the snow flies.

hole 4 is now taken! Thanks everyone. When I have the amount each tee will cost, I will post it. The family and friends of Leon Carr (they run the Red Bone Classic each year in his memory) sealed the deal. Now if the course is still there after the hurricane!
thanks again everyone - Paul


(Also as of two Fridays ago, six of the tees had been poured.)

Hey Bobby,

Sorry in the delay. Have not visited here lately. As of two weeks ago, Tom (the park manager) had 13 of 18 of the tees done. He said with any luck he would try and get the others finished before winter. I'll shoot him email tomorrow and let you know what he reports. I would like to get the white tees done as well but this is a good start. Thanks again to everyone who got behind this project!

On a side note - the park manager from Darien is going to be thinning some of the fairways. And a few tees will be moved so the course will be a bit more user friendly. I know some of the holes are too tight, but before we started this project there were no fairways at all. I would say in another two seasons, the course will play much more easy - without the fear of losing a disc on nearly hole. - Paul

Hey paul. i was there a week later and got to play off of them. Arte the trees painted blue on #10 going to be removed? Also what is his plan for the creek as far as edging it on the near side to be definitive as in or out? as for Darien Lake .....if people would realize it is a risk /reward course and played as such they would not lose discs :crazy:

Bobby,

yes those trees painted blue are going to be taken out to give both 9 and 10 a more realistic line to the pin(s). Not taking out many - just a few so it's not such a throw and hope. You make a good point about about the bank on 10. That should be staked as ob on both sides. That way there will be no confusion on that hole on whether a dis is in or o.b. Thanks for that! I will have Tom (the park manager) address that next spring. While I agree with you about the Apple, it does need some trimming. Not clearcutting but just so it's not so punishing if you go off the fairway.

Talked to Tom about the other tees today and he said they will be done next spring, probably late April or sometime in May.
If you (Bobby) or anyone else has feedback or other ideas, keep throwing it my way. It can only make the courses better.

Paul

Tee pads for the white and blue tees are on the Beast have now been completed. And the cost per hole is at the low end of spectrum from my initial posts of last year. The cost will be $100 which is completely tax deductible.) If you wish do use paypal, let me know and I will check to see how I can get that processed properly. It would likely go to me and then I would mail out a receipt from the state.

Checks can made out Natural Heritage Trust and can be mailed to:

Lakeside Beach state Park
13691 Roosevelt Hwy, Waterport, NY 14571
att: Tom Rowland

I totally want to thank everyone who stepped up to sponsor a hole. This winter we are going to be getting the tee signs done along with the sponsor signs ready for next season. You can either have your name, your company name or logo on the sponsorship sign. (like what was done at Beaver Island.)

Thanks again, Paul

thanks Ryan! many thanks to you and the club. I wish there were other state parks closer to Rochester to try and get another course in. (Yes, there is Hamlin, but that's likely a no go.)

But other things are in the works. When they come closer to actually happening, I will share the news.

Thanks again - Paul
