Disc golf is a great sport and Springfield is a big town with a big college. You have to ask yourself why Tom Watkins is always so deserted? I thought the goal was for more people to play, and Tom Watkins by your own admission isn't packing them in. Springfield needs a top-notch course so that area can start to develop into the scene it can be.
My understanding of what Russ was doing, and what I hope will happen, is to get disc golf surrounding Springfield. Nixa, Ash Grove and Ozark have courses now, as does Branson. That helps. The problem is the market does not have that killer course that will drive the excitement for the sport. There are no Waterworks or Sioux Passages in the area.readysetstab wrote:the city will not let the club run tournaments anymore. it really has nothing to do with the club, it's all about the city and their restrictions. springfield will never be a big disc golf town. Russ tries to get things done, but usually ends up trying to put in a new course for some other town instead because springfield is just impossible.
