At the rate that they are working on it, I bet it will be in within the next two weeks. I'll drive by this weekend and see where they are at.

Additional stuff:

On the pictures, I wrote "bad angle..." on Hole #6. I meant my camera angle was bad, not the design of the hole.

The practice basket & first hole are next to the baseball backstop as you drive up. They are on the right side of the path that heads down to the bridge.

I mentioned before that there are 2 wooded holes. One is actually just a path to the next teebox. So, only one wooded hole.

When those Innova baskets start rusting, the park districk might wish they went with DGA baskets. Hey, but good to have more baskets in the ground anyway! When Yorkville's Hoover 18 hole course design gets worked on maybe we can steer them to use Mach IIIs.

Abe, it looks like the baskets are just bolted to the sleeves – not locked. Did you notice if they used some kind of theft proof bolt? (if there is such a thing)

No i didn't notice.

But if you're thinking what I'm thinking, we could probably borrow Aaron's truck and go steal them tonight!  rofl

Here's a map I made up. I used their posted distances. But I think some posted distances are too long.

I'll list my estimate first, then their estimate. Theirs is always the higher number except for #4.

#1: 200   213
#2: 260   294
#3: 212   230
#4: 250   242
#5: 320   327
#6: 260   282
#7: 300   302
#8: 200   207
#9: 250   275
#10: 220   241
#11: 292   313
#12: 425   454

Thanks guys. And that's just the first course in Yorkville. A couple more are on the way. A small neighborhood course, and then the bigger one at Hoover. Hoover is going to be a destination course. This is a brief description:

The Hoover Outdoor Education Center, owned by the Boy Scouts of America, is a 406-acre camp with more than a mile of frontage along the Fox River. It features group accommodations for camping, dining, swimming, and lodging as well as an education building with several meeting rooms. The center has instructional programs in aquatics, arts and crafts, nature study and sports.

I'll get the Fox Hill Course pictures uploaded this weekend. Have a good time.
