Buddah Tree 09 / My 5th Ace

This weekend I went back out to Ammon Ranch for another weekend of great disc golf. The weather when I took off on Friday said showers for Saturday and early showers on Sunday. Unfortunatly for me it was a little wrong, showers turned into pouring rain all day Saturday with not even a hole off. We played 36 holes on Sat. one round forward and one reverse, I know this doesn't sound like alot of disc, but this is Ammon Ranch were talking about here. For anyone who hasn't ever had the chance to… Continue

My first win / Ice Bowl 2009

I got my first win yesterday in a tourny, the Ice Bowl @ Mad River Beach here in Humboldt County. This is one of the only Ice Bowls that is played almost entirely on objects instead of baskets. The morning was cold with the sand on the beach being frozen, but it turned into a great day out at the beach, sunny, 61F, and only a light breze most of the day, climing to a wind at some points. I was only in Novice scence I got slaughtered so bad at the Heave in Am2. After the first round of 18 I was… Continue

Ace # 4

I got my 4th ace on Friday out at Horse Mountain. My first throw of the day on hole 14 (we have two diffrent ways to play this course) with my Star TL, I sent it straight down the fairway and right into the pin. I had a couple of friends with me who had just started disc golfing and they had never seen an ace before, so they didn't quite know why I was so happy. This was my second ace with that TL so I decided before I f&*k it up and send my disc off into the woods I retired it. Now I need… Continue

All Hollows Heave

I was in my first real tourny this weekend out at Ammon Ranch here in Humboldt County, All Hollows Heave. What a great tourny to start with. I met people from all over the state and country, including a guy who was a disc golfer from Bowling Green KY, and if I remember right, the president of a disc golf club there. He was saying that it was the funnest tourny that he had attended, and was talking about trying to move out here, that the courses were that cool (there is a reason that Dave… Continue

My first course design / My 3rd ace

I was out working helping some friends in Trinity county on my weekend, which bummed me out becuse the nearest DGC was in Weaverville (45 minutes away). Then my friend sugested that we make a course on his property the next day. We all were up partying late, drinking tequila and beer, but me unlike them was still up at 8:30 ready to go to work. I decided that well they were all sleeping I would get out and start making the course. In a few hours I had 9 holes layed out with sticks for pins and… Continue

So-Hum Paradise

Yesterday I got to play a private course in Southern Humboldt that blew my mind, Birds of Paradise. This course was amazing, lefts, rights, ups, downs, tightly wooded, open fields (but never flat open fields), HUGE elevation change, lots of alternates and tons of room for expansion. The guy who runs the course (on his parents land) is very cool and a fun guy to play with. We played a round on the new layout (that I was only the second or third person to play), then we played some old holes,… Continue

My first tourny

I went to my first tourny yesterday, a secret tourny on a beach here in Humboldt county. I heard about it last minute from some golfers that I met out at the curtain, so I got a co-worker to cover for me so I could go up there for the day. It was a long drive folowed by a 4 mile hike in to try to get in by the 9:30 players meeting. It was an extremly fun event 2 rounds on a temp course on the beach, all driftwood targets with tape to mark it. Some holes were shooting off huge rock formations… Continue

Willie Nelson and Garberville

This weekend I got to go to Garberville for a round of disc before I went down to the Willie Nelson concert at Dimmick Ranch. It was a fun course with multiple tees on almost every hole. There were some tone poles, but mostly baskets, with some hanging from trees (very cool). I could see why I had herd varrying reviews from diffrent people I knew who had played the course, as there were varying reviews in my group. I loved it, despite the wind. It starts out with a walk up a huge hill and a… Continue

Ace #2... aka: Mack & Drop

I hit ace #2 last night out on the Redwood Curtain. I was shooting hole 17 with my pro Classic Roc, it curved slightly to the right then back to the left, I thought it was going too far then it hit a tree branch and droped right in. Luckly there was a group that had just played 17 in front of me and they got to hear it hit and hear me scream. WWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!

1st ACE

I got my first ace yesterday, 06/09/08 7:11pm at the Redwood Curtain here in Arcata on hole 4. For those not in the know hole 4 curves to the right, around a big burned out stump. I threw my 148 Archangel straight and hard with a tiny bit of Anhyzer it curved perfictly around and slamed into the tonepole with a mighty clang. I ran around the corner and some guys that were putting on 9 said they saw it slam. This was 3 years in the making, after so many close calls and near misses it was an… Continue

Lost Discs, New Friends, New Archangels?

Over the last two weeks I have lost 4 discs, 3 of wich were some of my favorite discs (2 Archangels and a champ valkyrie). I lost 3 of them out in the Redwood Curtain and one out in Willow Creek. I still have not heard anything about the 3 in the curtain, but the one in Willow Creek was found by a local player up there. He found it while looking for his disc in some thick brush, but it wasn't the hole I lost it on, so someone out there was playing with my disc and lost it again (karma you could… Continue
