Springlike Day

I had scheduled a Lakewood Club meeting for this evening hoping for a nice day so I could swing by the course and play beforehand. The weather didn't disappoint but before I could play I had to meet with Sam from the parks department about an issue with hole 16. Sam supervises the maintenence at Lakewood and is very disc golf friendly. Unfortunately there is some pressure from above that is asking (requiring?) that the basket on hole 16 be taken out of the wooded area where it now resides. This… Continue

Another beauty day

I spent the better part of the day at the studio grinding on some sculpture pieces and working on a couple of other projects. I headed out to Lakewood in the late afternoon expecting to see lots of cars in the lot since the weather was once again outstanding. Surprisingly there were only a couple of cars and a just a few golfers in sight when I arrived. While I was taking a few warmup putts Leif drove up fresh from a round at Seatac so we decided to head out onto the course together. Leif… Continue

February in Seattle

We've had a week of amazing weather here in Seattle, at least compared to what we often have in February. I didn't get out for DG nearly as much as I would have liked but I did make it out with my seven year old Quinn for nine holes at North Park early in the week. We drove up there to get a little exercise after his weekly violin lesson on Tuesday. Part of the way through our campaign against the front nine Lowell Shields joined us, if for nothing else than to demonstrate how to pick the… Continue

Sweet ACE! at Lakewood

The promise of sunny weather brought 25 golfers to Lakewood for the Feb. Acepot. The day started out chilly but even so you could tell it was going to turn out to be a beautiful day. The $365 in the ace kitty probably encouraged players to show up as well! There was a nice field of 15 Pros, 9 Ams and 1 woman. I decided to run a straight 27 hole format instead of the traditional two rounds of 18. We play the regular 18 hole course and then add holes 1, 2, 3, 5 short, 6, old #11, 12, 17 & 18.… Continue

Introduce a friend to Disc Golf!

A friend from the U.K. (I met him on a ship in Antarctica!) gave me a shout that he was coming to Seattle for a conference this week and wanted to give disc golf a try. I picked him up at his downtown hotel and in 15 minutes we were at Lakewood on the first tee. I brought an assortment of discs in one of my extra bags for him to test drive: understable drivers, mid-ranges and a couple of different putters and we headed out hoping to beat the gathering grey rain clouds. I was pleased to get a… Continue

Terrace Creek

I started feeling a bit cagey this afternoon and decided to head up to Terrace Creek to play 18. It was real windy today with temps in the upper 40s. I played solo until I got to the ninth hole where I caught up with Jub Jub and Jim O'Connor so I joined them for the second half of the round. Even though the skies were cloudy and the wind was gusting there were quite a few people out on the course. I tried to play a 'smart' round and avoid lots of extra strokes by trying to go for everything. I… Continue

NP Acepot

Went out to North Park at around 9:30 this morning for the monthly acepot. Gordy and I ran a 27 hole event so that we could finish in time to get home and watch the superbowl. We played 18 holes and then seeded everyone before playing 9 more (odd # tees). I think there were around 27 players present, which is better than it's been for a while. With around $500 sitting in the acepot I figured there would be some folks out to play. Kind of cloudy and cool all day but no rain to speak of. I ended… Continue

Lakewood today

After a few hours in the studio I decided I needed to get out for a bit of golf so I headed down to Lakewood for a round. Lots of cars in the parking lot when I arrived, good to see. I ended up playing a solo round straight up, no "extra" shots. After eighteen holes I found myself with one bogey (13) and one bird (3). A really flat, even round. Actually kind of nice compared to the rollercoaster rounds I've been having lately. I pulled out my box of assorted discs for sale after the round and… Continue
