New Winter Layout NOW in Play

The Devito and Son (the son is Stan) Development Corporation recently completed a course realignment on the front nine at the Kiwanis Disc Golf course in an attempt to improve the flow of the course and add new looks and challenges.  The new layout will be played throughout the winter.  The changes involve holes 2 through 5.  Temporary signs are posted on the course.  The improvements are as follows:  1) Hole 4 has been reversed and is now hole 2.  The hole tees off near the pump house and cuts up the old hole 4 fairway with a yellow basket tucked to the left and an orange basket straight up the shoot.  2)  Hole 3 remains Hole 3 and is reversed.  It takes a monster drive to clear this steep uphill shot with plenty of trouble to the left of the fairway.  The hole has a real feel distance of 290 feet.  3) Hole 5 has been reveresed and now plays as hole number 4.  The short downhill hole will need a tight anhyzer shot to the basket located to the right.  4) Finally, the old hole 2 is now hole 5.  Early reviews from North Carolina champion Mitch Dickens were positive, and the Wilson boys were dispatched to the course on December 20th to evaluate.  Grandmaster emeritus Roy Carter will give the new layout a spin on December 21 and is expected to file a full report along with an I-9 form.HOLE 2 SIGN HOLE 3 SIGN HOLE 4 SIGN
