Today was phase one of the two part process of putting in 9 new Monkey Traps on the grounds of Kirksey Middle School, in Rogers, Arkansas. This course will soon be named the "Grove" by the staff who are all eagerly awaiting their new course! The Grove is a great beginner course that is plenty technical which balances the lack of length. Heath Whitley (the main designer) with the help of Team Monkey's Randal Reisner, used the heavily treed area very well forcing a variety of shots off the tees. Great work fellas! There will be another 9 added across the street once the ground is cleared with a controlled under burn, says Deb Walters (Kirksey Scools).
The Kirksey Physical Education staff helped Randal Reisner and myself auger holes for the baskets. Later Randal and I set the poles for both the baskets and the tee signs today. We were also able to stake down rubber mats for the teeing area. As it stands now, the course should be open to play Tuesday afternoon on August 10th. This is when the baskets will be finished being powder coated Razor Back Red.
Look forward to seeing you on Arkansas's newest Monkey Trap course. "Get Trapped"!
