Wink SOUTH GA field

Just trying to touch base and get an idea on interest in the area. Long story short a friend and I are working on building a field near Douglas, GA. To my knowledge north of Florida and and south of Macon there are no true fields to play anymore. We are currently in the process of building a 150X80 5 man air ball field. We have plans to begin playing games before December and opening more to public in the following year. Things may work out sooner, however we will not have rentals or full amenities for awhile.

When I moved back to the area, I had been out of playing for a couple years, and began contacting friends and past team mates on the idea of building a small practice field so that we could play without the 2 hour plus drive. It has grown into quite a larger en-devour. So just to touch base with users from around the area who are currently traveling let me know what you think.....

Lots of ground work done. Poles in the ground. Net will be hung sometime next week. Bunker layouts are in the works. (however we have an older field with a large brick count. Not a new modern race/temple design.) Don't want to mislead. We do plan on updating and replacing bunkers if things take off. Ill place some proposed layouts up later if interested.

We don't currently have room for a more square "psp style field." But we do have some more spaces in mind to place other fields that may come available in time. As for now we have more of a nppl layout which we are more accustomed to anyways. The field is located just a little over an hour from Valdosta. I heard rumors soon after we began the field that there was talk of one coming back into the Valdosta area. Anyone know more about that?

100/180=.55 145/80=.55 same proportions. A more rectangle field design such as nppl. Didn't say full regulation. We wanted a field that was comfortable for 3v3 and large enough to run 5v5. Which I think we accomplished.

Pavo is still 2 hrs from here so we're still in a more under served area. But we're not to bad of a drive for val players either.

Looking to hear if theres players on here from douglas, waycross, hazlehurst, ocilla or anywhere less than one hour.

i think your location should be good as long as there are players in that area. douglas is about 1.5 hrs from any current field that i know of. those being the ones in macon, pavo, and ludowici

You are missing the point... If you want to attract players to your field, your field has to be bigger... Ask any Tourney player out there...

150x80 is too small for 5on5, this is more of a 3vs3 field. you need to add 20' more to make it 150x100, factor in bunkers and how much space they take

fyi PSP regulation is 180x120
GFOA is 150x120

Lol I've played tournament ball. Call it modifed/not regulation, 3 man, a practice field, shoot call it outlaw. Its a field with cool guys and welcoming attitude. We have plans to expand , buy larger and more updated fields, and offer full amenities. If players are truly unhappy after we play we will then look at changing things up.
This isn't the point of the thread. Im perfectly happy with it being a three man field, but we are going to aim at being a three man field people want to come to.

Id assume he has does his research since he said south of macon there are no fields to play at. OTP and Big Indian are both a good ways from Douglas, GA even if they arent exactly in Macon they are still far from the area he is looking at.

I live in Alma and I have to travel a good ways to play every time I play. Im all for a field in douglas, I would love to be able to play without spending half my day in a car. The field size does need to be PSP regulation to get me to come or at least close to regulation size. I figure itd be the same for most other tournament players in our area that are driving. Were driving farther for a reason. We want to play paintball at nice fields like big indian, nitro, otp, or dosser. If theres anyway to extend the dimensions of your field you should

South Georgia definitely needs more fields. My dad is stationed at Moody AFB and the only decent feild around here is blackwater in pavo. Will there be woodsball too or just speedball? I like both but my dad is more of a woodsball guy.
