Ascent Trip Report

A successful/enjoyable visit to 4 areas.

Michael Schwartz's TR still applies after 15 years - one must read Michael. The reason for this TR is to update the entry to the gated community. Nothing has changed, except to say that my choice for the HP for area #3 was at house #4339 Lakeshore Drive and not at the 18th tee. Having said however I don't think there is much natural ground here. We parked at the water tank for Area #3 and 4, probably the most enjoyable/manicured walk ever.

The entry to the gated "Lake of the Four Seasons" community" was easy, in this regard much has changed since Michael's visit.
I barely got-out my request when the lady at the gate said, "That's not a problem just park behind the gate house and I'll look after you." This entrance is very very busy. I parked and went inside the gate house.

I was requested to write-up a detailed route of my areas, however when she saw my documents she agreed to make a copy of my PB data sheets (I had satellite images of the areas). The only other information she requested was my name, didn't even take the plate number of our van. Very easy and friendly.
