Anyone know the condition of White Oak? Last I heard the course lost a few holes and wasn't bring maintained.

Greg Campbell I haven't been out there in a while, but I know they pulled two baskets in the Northwest corner (13 &14) due to people climbing the fence to get their discs.

John Riley I wonder if anyone considered resigning the layout. The property is unbelievable. Hate to lose such a good course.

Greg Campbell It's been redesigned a few times to help appease the neighbors. It's been a pain to make everyone happy who lives on the outskirts of the course. Word is the baskets are going to be moved to a new park. I think we need to rally the troops and come up with a new design that stays far away from the outlining area. It could be done easily.

Barry Arnson It may just be better to put the baskets in another park at this point.

Jake Bishop I live in Paulding County, and I know that the course is not kept up well, and that the either all or most of the back 9 was removed(from rumor). I haven't played the course since this time last year, and it wasn't being kept up well then.

Ryan Harris I played it once last year and thought the course was fun and the land was really nice with the hills and lake. Sad to hear it's not getting used.

Bob Pressley Is there a park that is approved for a DG course at the moment? If not, let's try to get an approval for a revision?

John Riley True! It would be nice to begin stringing some championship caliber courses within a close proximity. Then maybe a NT or bid for world's could happen in the ATL!

Austin Lytle John white oak is clean. This winter really killed the high grass. 13-14 basket were pulled from people jumping the fence into private property for discs last summer. I went about 2 weeks ago. I'm down to meet tomorrow?

Greg Campbell Bob Pressley , it would be Paulding County Parks and Rec. It's a shame that course is not the diamond of local disc golf. The land is gorgeous and ready for a course. And by that I mean a REAL course.

Matt Dollar I didn't mean any offense Greg. I should have said you need Ritger, McCoy, Fish, or someone else with experience designing big courses.

If you would like, I can edit my original post, bc I didn't mean to offend anyone. Sometimes things I type don't come out as planned

Dustin Penwright I agree Mr. Dollar. I will admit that I neglected the park myself but have been making a push over the past year to get it playable and complete again

John Riley Dustin...could you organize a meeting with the person from the parks department for the purpose of discovering what areas are available for a course redesign? From there we can gather input for a redesign. I love White Oak. I've always considered it the premiere public course in the Atlanta area. If the parks department is willing to open up the land behind hole 2, we could take White Oak to another level.

Greg Campbell The problem with using the land behind hole two is seguing it into the rest of the land. There is an R/C area at the top of the hill (to the right as you enter) that may constrain as well as that land being relatively uncharacteristic and open. We'll see.

Patrick Kellner Open land could be dealt with, with some smart landscaping. You might even get a local nursery to donate a few trees possibly.

Patrick Kellner does it not make more sense to just make good courses and cater to newer players by adding shorter tee's?
11 hours ago · Like · 1

Greg Campbell That was one of the alternative choices. We came up with a design that added some shorter holes in the middle of the front nine to make up for the missing two on the back nine. These new holes did not impact the integrity of the existing layout too much.

Mike Dammes As one of the people for helping get this course in the ground, I feel kind or responsible for the condition of the course. However, I now have a 9yr old and 14yr old that both play sports year-round. It is hard enough juggling their schedule to even think about getting out to the course.

John Riley Kevin...I understand your thought, but we also need courses to further develop the new players as they get better. To many courses around the ATL fail to offer scoring seperation. A championship caliber course can offer short tee placements for more novice players via multiple tee pads.

Dustin Penwright Just trying to help out. My intention is to not get in the way or step on the toes of those involved at courses around Atlanta. I will do what I can for the players and advocates of this game we ALL love to play. My apologies if I have gone in the wrong direction by not inquiring with you first Mike.

John Riley I'm excited to folks wanting to return White Oak to a prominent disc golf location.

Dustin...I too would like to attend the meeting when it's lined up.

Mike...I love what you did there. I hope we can collaborate with other knowledgable players and make this the EPIC disc golf course in the Atlanta area.

Patrick Kellner It seems like if additional land is available there could be the potential for 27 solid holes. Would be nice to see something work out there.
