The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

check out the Pinconning Disc Golf Club's photographs of Blizzard Hills. All 18 holes are pictured with details for each. Then get in your car, on your scooter or in your airplane or helicopter and come for a visit. Afterward, please take the time to go to the PDGA course listings and write a review. Also watch for the postings and details of our first sanctioned tournament coming up this September 11th, 2010. When you visit and write the review you should know that the course was designed by Sheila and Terry Calhoun with implementation and revisions by the ground crew Roger Myers, Jim Szyperski and Craig Prime. Also of interest is that this course is the only Public Course in the Saginaw Valley area that DOES NOT receive ANY public funds, park maintenance benefits. The property was donated for the course by Ward Prindle, owner and resident and the entire effort was done with donated funds and 100% donated labor to hand cut all 18 holes through the thick woods and brush. Tee pads are coming yet this year, signage is constantly improving and the course looks better each week. As anyone of you that has maintained or established a course knows, it take TONS of effort. Any volunteers are welcomed, all suggestions are listened to and please, do your best to play one of the toughest courses in the Saginaw Valley.

I was up at Blizzard Hills Last year, when there was only 12 holes. And I thought it was pretty nice. I came back up this summer and got to play all 18 holes. Great Course, you guys are doing a nice job. I almost Aced the dog Leg over the river. Next time I come back I'm gonna hit it so Watch out. Keep up the good work!!
Thanks Paul.
I've come VERY close to an ace on hole 8 myself and actually, I figured it to be one of the first to be aced, but so far as I know, there hasn't been one yet. Hole's 3, 9 13 and 16 (formerly 17) over the marina have all been aced and we do have an ace club listed on the course map and welcome board, so if you hit one, get in touch so we can see your name in print.
Will do for sure, I think I am going to be back up there at the end of August again.
Congrats to Thom Kelly and Tom Swathort for tying the low record round of 6 under par, 48 strokes for 18 holes. Tom Swathort and Kat Witucki also hold a score of 48 shot earlier this season. And for those of you that haven't played BH, when you do you'll find that it's THE MOST PEACEFUL setting and challenging course in Bay County and the entire Saginaw Valley selection of fine courses. Random draw doubles every Monday night at 6:00. Our Ace Pool is at $250.00 with a $15.00 buy in for 1st time players plus the normal $2.00 nightly Ace Fee.
I haven't got to see the final course yet :(

Due to The Throw Shop and the day job, I have no days off to drive up there. It is certainly a very unique course.
Sweet, next time I come down to Franks Great Outdoors in Linwood we will stop for a couple rounds. Right on!
hope to see you there. and after your visit, the PDGA has a GREAT way to evaluate course. We would all appreciate anyone going to the site and leaving a detailed rating. Please remember, the course is a work in progress, all being completed with volunteer labor and donated funds. thanks

please contact me here on DGRUS at my ID "get your discs and godiscn", see me Monday night at the random draw doubles, on Disc Golf Scene under my user name Craig Prime, call me, I'm in the phone book or email me at god@godiscn.com if ANYONE has any information on the thief or thieves.
sorry to hear that! we had something similar to that happen to #18 at one of my fav courses earlier this summer. we actually held a doubles tourney(thrown together rather quickly) with the funds going to a new basket. it was a success and we got our new basket installed soon after and even got a new placement for the chains. just an idea so the locals all can help get the basket replaced quickly.
I really hope you get your basket back, I would say the odds are slim to none but I really hope you guys luck out. That is just so lame that someone would do that! I say off with their hands. Good Luck.
thanks guys and gals - hopefully we can manage something ASAP, we're already on it. This fall is supposed to be our 1st sanctioned tourney and we are working hard on tee pads, didn't need a setback, triple darn. Myself and a few others have been EXTREMELY lucky in retrieving 2 stolen baskets from different courses in the area, so let's keep our fingers crossed, unless you see the thief, then uncross your fingers and put one on the trigger.
it's certainly a course that's not to be missed. A couple of new ideas will make it even versatile in the way anyone can play it, we're anxious to have your opinion. With all 18 done the course plays very well and much quicker than repeating the original 9. It takes some real serious play (or player) to shoot under 54.
