Worlds Courses: Robert Morriss Park & Begg Park

I finally got to Kalamazoo today (joined by Tom Blackburn, Richard Tuttle, and Josh Cantor). We played Robert Morris Park and Begg Park. I threw a 54 at Robert Morris and a 52 at Begg. I really liked both courses. Robert Morris is tougher than that, and I'll probably never again throw it that well.

Both courses are, I think, in good shape for the Worlds, with some obvious last-minute signage yet to come.

I have never played Three Rivers, and haven't seen Oshtemo or Kimball… Continue

Putting Improvements

My buddy Slic let me borrow his basket to practice up for worlds, and, just in general. My putting game has been far from decent. I have a few on days, but the off days way outnumber the on days. So I've been putting, every day for at least a half hour. I've been doing this for just over a week now. I really can say that this will help your game immensely. Sometimes I don't want to go out and putt, but since I've been having problems with my shoulder on my throwing arm, I've resorted to very… Continue

Good weather

It was less than 70, sunny and breezy today. Could get used to that for August.

Portland, OR- Portland Lunchtime DGC:On the grounds of a large religious cult. Surprisingly long, with two holes over 500' and a few more over 400', with only 12 holes. Plays along the parking lot and entrance road, near buildings on 2 holes, then goes out into a field, down into some woods and back across the field. Very hilly, the first basket can be troublesome to sail past downhill. Several… Continue

Mini Tour of North Carolina

I am planning a mini tour of central NC disc golf courses. There are a lot of 9 hole courses north of Charlotte. I know that the best courses are in Charlotte, but I want to get the maximum out of this trip. I want to play as many new courses as I can. I will be able to fit in more if I play 9 hole courses. I am going to play a few 18 hole courses as well. I plan on trying to fit in something like 10 courses in 3 days. I will post the courses that I play and my thoughts.

Waterloo State Recreation Area (Big Portage Lake Concession) Disc Golf Course

I feel like I am learning so much this year about course design - including the politics of it - that I should share things as I learn them. Which means a lot more related posts from me, although I am not sure whether posting to my blog or to the forum is a better way of sharing/learning. (Opinions welcome.)

Sheila and I drove to the Waterloo course today to check out the work the parks people there have done on the first 9 holes, designed by Gunars Nollendorfs and I. The last time I… Continue

Today was a burn. I drove 45 miles to Mt. Hood, after calling and they said they were open. I get there and they just closed, due to rain. I wasted 15$ in gas and 2 hours of my time, leaving no other close enough to play courses today, so only got 3 done. And had to play in rain non-stop. Gore-tex socks were sweet though.

Corbett, OR- Benson State Park: Technically not in Corbett have to change that. Shortttt, longest about 250', one hole is 99'. No real challenges but the… Continue

2nd place of 30 teams tonight at doubles

I got the only person I knew there for a partner, what are the odds. Eric Mathais who I've played with before in 04,05,06. We tore it up pretty well, he made a 200' fairway ace. My shot took 2nd for us in the 1st place playoff. Like I always say..give me a partner who can putt. I got one.

THURSDAY continued:

Portland (Troutdale)- Dabney State Park:Tough, rough course. Several holes along a ridge, with thick thorns and a long way to go down if you go down. And… Continue
