Yes - there will be rubber matting for the deck teepads down the road. Glad you had a good time playing it and also in understanding that it is a work in progress that will improve over time.
I hope you and the crew will come back and see the improvements. (maybe you'll come back for the first doubles in May)
Just got back from spending a few hours trimming up foliage on 8 holes - after meeting with them for over an hour lining up the exciting announcements which follow.
Very exciting news and info will be posted here as well as in the NEW course thread for the complex coming soon.
They offer Monthly ($20) and Annual passes ($60) for those who wish to play the course more often that will save on the $5 per day course fee.
They opened the course on April 9th which coincided with the start of their busier Zipline season and also while I wasn't able to be there helping with trimming the new spring growth. (The course was designed and cleared during the wintertime and the guides - which have have done a TON of work - are just mostly learning about Disc Golf and they are VERY excited about the course and are now playing on a regular basis when their tours are done for the day.)
They also now have a setup with Georgia Power to deliver mulch to be used on the fairways for the wooded holes, and I also will be there more often now going forward and will keep the fairways sides clear as well as they will mow the grass on a regular basis.Exciting News Part 1)
Doubles will be taking place EVERY 3rd SUNDAY year round starting on MAY 15th
- No greens fees for Annual Pass holders!
Start times will be at 2PM in Daylight Savings Time (Mid MAR-OCT) and at Noon in the non-Daylight Savings Time part of the year (NOV-Mid MAR).
We will park at the side of the parking lot by the practice basket and will meet at the tables on the dock.
There are restrooms in the main building next to the meeting area along with refreshments/icecream products for sale and they will also stock discs with their logo and bags. There will also be a permanent soda machine along with water station (during doubles) on the Chicken coop hole.
They will offer Rustic camping and teepees (with electric) for overnight visits projected to be starting later in May and there will be a total of 20 Rustic camping spots (holds 1 larger tent with up to 4 people inside) and 10 Teepees from 18 feet (Sleeps 2) to 26 feet (with 2 Queen beds) when the project is completed later in the summer. There is also a restroom/shower area bathhouse building with water for the camping area that is almost finished.Exciting News Part 2)
A Bonus GSSevenS Event will be taking place on OCT 15th and 16th, 2011
Info will be posted soon about the Bonus Event. The complex will also be the hostof the first GSSS Event in 2012 in MARCH!
Course directions and address here: http://northgeorgiacanopytours.com/directions.html
- It is around an hour from ITP and around 1&1/2 from most any area near I-285. Less than 45 minutes from Athens or Blairsville as they are right off US 129 / US 23.
And the good part for me personally is it is the closest GSSS spot except for Wills Park - as it is only 1 hour and 20 minutes from my house.
More info will be posted on the Course thread when the Course thread becomes available.
