If we are going to present numbers to the city, then we need to go all out. Give them the numbers for our club membership, Berkeley's membership, Sonoma's, San Jose etc., Give them the numbers of the weekly and doubles players (and for the other courses.) Let them know there are hundreds of golfers that will play Lincoln. My experience on 4 such courses is that we play much quicker, can play through ball golfers that spend a lot of time on the greens, and very low impact to the course. By placing the baskets off to the side and before most greens, greens don't get hit by discs and no dammage. This is not the case at Emerald Isle because a lot of the baskets are behind the greens, but they love us and deal with it. A course of this length will necessitate baskets forward of the greens. And we can ride carts!!! This is such a cool idea. I don't know if any existing such course is on a city owned course, but we have huge numbers of players to support this here. Various business plans can be submitted, like the club owns the baskets and gets a percetage of each fee paid, or the city takes ownership after paying off the baskets and gets all the revenue, and disc sales in the pro shop.
