Here it is. It was mostly designed by Stevie Rydelle, with some input from me. Kinda the opposite way it usually is. Very Happy

Sure is. No chance of getting stuck with one of those. Keeps the grass nice and flat on the fairways as well.

Was there at 6:30 this morning.

Played hole #6. Picked up the scythe and played Hole #1.
Cut a 10ft wide path from the tees of #1 down to the road.

Widened the path up to the #1 landing area. Cut a 10ft wide path from the already cut landing area back to where my disc landed.

Played #7. Cut a huge section left and short of the basket.


(this only show a small portion of what I cut)

Then cut a 10ft wide path up to #8.


(haha, I look a little out of breath)

Played #8, I landed short and left (I was a little out of breath by that point). Cut a huge section low and left of the basket.

Played #9. Started cuttung the ferns left of the path (If figured this is where most people might land if they can't get there disc to flip). I start out very optimistic and was cutting very wide. At this point, I started getting pretty tired. You'll see where I left off, it's quite obvious.

Played #10 (My adopted hole) and had no juice left to do any work at that point. Cut a little bit on the way to the #10 tees from the #9 basket.

Played #11. Played #18. Left at 7:50am.

There's lot's of work left to do up there. It's really easy to just take the scythe and cut while you play. Now would be a great time to do a lot of cutting so that the waste dries up in the coming weeks.

If I can get up there to do this (2 young kids) I know there's other people who can too (who are not already adopting holes). I hope you feel guilty! Wink big grin

The scythe needs some major sharpening! big grin

Apparently you can sharpen these (and probably every sharp thing in the world) with a sharpening stone. Anyone have one of those. I'd give it a try.

Nice job Julz... although I think you look more like 'Death'.

Acutally, there's a guy beside my parents house that fixes old lawn mowers. He'd probably be able to sharpen the scythe. If Stretch brought it home after tonight, we could probably get that done.

I'm heading up to CF this evening with Don to measure some holes and do some cutting while I'm there. I was going to stop in at Lee Valley Tools on the way through town and pick up a sharpening stone for the sythe if they have one.

Good work Colin ..... hope that guilt trip thing works ... wink

They say they sell them, so you should do all right.

Good thing it's Austrian and not Australian, or the Kiwi might have ripped it up!

Oi! Razz

Which hole needs the most amount of grass cutting right now?

I'll adopt at least half of Hole #18... if someone else only has the time for half a hole, this is a good place to step forward.

I've already made good headway after several trips up there.

On holes like #5, cutting "reference-crop-circles" would be very good. Spots that could be used for reference points to find discs in the ferns.

There will be a spotter on 5 this weekend.

Arthur, Ben and I cleaned our holes on Monday with help from Mark. I hope people can get out this week to give your hole (or a poor unadopted hole) a trim.

Has anyone adopted #4? I heard it was supposed to be an island hole. I got supplies last night to turn it into an island. Speak up if you are the adopted parent of hole #4 if you do not want it to be an island.

I cannot wait CF will look the best it has to date!!!
