The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

You may have seen news stories about the flooding along the Red River in the Fargo, North Dakota area in recent days. Sadly, both of our 18 hole courses are totally submerged...and will be for many weeks. We had a sweet little 9 hole rec course (which I designed) in a FLOOD PROOF park but the 'geniuses' at the West Fargo Park District couldnt deal with the traffic and ripped it outta the ground last fall. This leaves a metro area of nearly 200,000 (and MANY disc golfers) with NOTHING until this water subsides and things dry out. Please keep us in your thoughts as you enjoy our beloved sport.

Attached you will see some shots of the Woodlawn Park course. 15th tee pad is featured in the attachments. You go STRAIGHT downhill off this tee pad. The basket is about 10-15 feet BELOW the tee. The park is essentially a big bowl...now a lake. You would need scuba gear to find any basket now.

Oh My God. That is insane. I heard about the flooding, but I did not realize how intense it was. As upsetting as that is, those pictures are kinda of amazing to see. The power of Mother Nature is incredible. I hope the waters retreat soon so you and your fellow disc golfers can get back out there!

-Your fellow Disc Golfer in SoCal
we have a course here In ann arbor that floods to but nothing that bad. I hope your water leaves you and you can get back out soon but for now bust out your waders and o2 tanks for the water golf. take care and stay hopeful
Unfortunately, the river has not crested yet. In the next few days it is expected to peak at an additional 5 feet or so and could stay at peak for several days...as we just got another half foot of snow today! Record high water for this area. We are currently constructing the ARK! Thanks guys.
we should send them some buckets so they can start bailing water. seriously though, my heart goes out to all the people who can't play disc and more importantly to those who have lost their homes and/or businesses due to water damage.

That sucks! I thought our course got flooded, but its nothing compared to that. Hopefully the water retreats soon and doesn't trash the course out to bad.
WoW!!! That really bites!!!! Too make matters worse...after the water's finally gone....There will still be be a hellava mess to clean up.

Good luck...we feel your pain!!!!
Your fellow ND discer from Jamestown speaking. That really sucks, I have not looked at our course at the river, but I know my grandmothers house by the river is flooded. Pretty similar to the pictures in fact. BTW Armour park is a tragedy.
hey now,you guys win the worse water hazzard course hands down.On a serious note,the clean up will take many man hours.Good luck,stay safe from any flooding.Peace
I feel for you bro. I live in the upper midwest and we got it last year. Its painful to see your course like that. It took until late june for our course to be playable. I hope you guys have better luck.
And I thought our park flooded when it rained. Good luck with the clean up. Hope you have the people who are willing to help get things back to normal once Mother Nature decides to leave.
thats nuts I just wouldn't know what to do
