The disc golf tee pads are being installed
In E.T.Seton park
After reading on the Disc Golf Ontario discussion forum about the tee pads being installed this week on the E.T.Seton disc golf course, I took a walk this afternoon to get some pictures.
On the approach to the course from the north, a new sign saying "CAUTION: disc golf zone ahead" has been erected.
Concrete tee pads are being installed on many holes. In the next picture, the 2nd hole tee pad is in the foreground, while in the background, from left to right, are the tee pad installations for holes 16, 11, 12, 15, and 3.
The 12th hole, which plays uphill, is one of the toughest on the course. Well, it is for frisbee golfers; disc golfers can get up there in a single shot.
Here's the tee pad for the controversial 13th hole, now located forward a few yards from its original spot, positioned so that shots over the Science Centre back parking lot are practically eliminated.
The 11th hole requires shooting around a huge tree. The 11th basket, in the long position, is (barely) visible to the right of the tree.
Here's the tee pad for the 4th hole. It looks seriously misaligned to me. Plus, there is a large tree branch, thick and healthy, hanging right in front. Before the tee pad, we shot from slightly to the left, closer to the "bird house" tree. I'm not suggesting anything, but I would be surprised to see that branch remain in place for long.
Near the 7th hole basket, a path has been cleared down the side of the hill where a gas pipeline is buried. I'm guessing that because of this sudden opening in the bush, playing the 7th hole by skirting the forest and coming in from the back, as it were, is now an option.
