Soldier Springs Disc Golf Course.

After being turned down due to public access for the Deer Ridge course we set our sights on Soldier Springs.

We walked the 55 acres and started focusing on the 30 acres near the back of the property. We next designed a rough layout and played the course with a temporary basket. After that round we decided to make a few changes and redesigned four or five holes and played another round.

We still weren't a hundred percent happy with the flow and felt a couple holes could be…

2010 PDGA Amateur World Doubles Championships

Man, I can't wait, it's almost that time again to head down to Wimberley, Texas. From what I hear, the creek and ponds have water in them this year which should make the tournament even more fun. It's been a couple years since I've played with the waterfall flowing so I'm looking foward to that for sure.

I didn't play last year as my partner, Tom Langley wanted to play the Amateur Texas State Doubles instead. We did okay considering we took on some penalty strokes because of our…

I'm dreaming of a White Round of Golf on Christmas Eve.

Current air temperature in DFW is 37 and the radar is awash in yellow, red, and orange, with a little green thrown in for fun. Today's high was 39 and that occured earlier this morning. The wind is from the west/northwest at about fifteen for now but around noon will pick up to 25-30 mph.

The weatherman says the snow was supposed to start blowing at nine this morning but it's a quarter past and nothing yet. Although when I look at the radar, we're right on the edge of the front so it could… Continue

Hawai'i, The Big Island

We are down to two days before we leave for the big island and I can't wait. I'm not really looking foward to the plane ride but I know it'll be worth it when we get there.

My wife and I are going to celebrate our eleventh anniversary. We were going to go to St. Johns last year but the economy tanked so we decided to wait and see what was going to happen. Now, with all the stimulus and buy-outs etc etc. we find not much has changed, other than the fact that we just got a year older. We… Continue

July 4th Fundraiser

As many of you know, last Saturday, June 20th, two baskets were stolen from Weatherford DGC.

At this time we only have 174.00 in our course fund due to the recent transfer of over two thousand dollars for cement teeboxes. We cannot afford the replacement costs at this time so instead of the normal mini on Saturday, July 4th, we will be running a fundraising mini.

This will be a singles event with the ace pot in effect, along with CTP's. We will try to have CTP's for all eighteen holes… Continue

This will be the only tournament held at Oak Ridge Disc Golf Course this year. It will be held on Saturday, June 27th.

This is a private course in Gainesville, Tx. The tourney will be two rounds of 28 holes.

This tourney is an invite only so RSVP if your interested in getting on the list.

The entry is 40.00… Continue

3rd Annual Play It Again Sports Open

Day one is in the books. I think the heat index had to be over 120 degrees. I'm not sure what is was exactly but I do know is was friggin HOT. It wasn't so bad when we teed off at 10:37am but it quickly became extreme. So extreme in fact that a couple of the Adv Grand Masters dropped out because of it. I hope you guys are alright Doug and Bill.

Our round took us just over four hours to complete and I have to admit it was a bit of a struggle down the stretch.

I took Propel packets and… Continue

In the words of Hank Hill, "I'll tell ya what!"

I don't know how many people have paid attention to the weather in North Texas the last 24 hours but it's been pretty severe indeed.

Yesterday was Wednesday and we have a random draw doubles mini on Wednesday night. My buddy Barry called me around five asking if we were still having it and I told him I'd come out to the park and we'd have a beer and see what the weather was going to do.

When I got ot the park, there was five or six people waiting on me and the weather was just… Continue

Nice week of golf this week.

Monday; Just went out to the local course by myself, wore the Ipod and played a nice relaxed casual two rounds. Listened to some Stevie Ray, Tom Petty and AC/DC and shot a one under and an even. Sometimes it's nice to just play at your own speed, didn't have to wait on anyone either round which was nice too.

Tuesday; Met Rody and Kyle and drove over to try and make the mini at Crowley. I knew we were running a little late so I called everyone I could think of to no avail. We got… Continue

Roadtrip to Texas State Doubles

We leave tomorrow, heading south to the Snow Farm, for Texas State Dubs.

This year, I'll be playing with Tom Langley, whom I consider to be a pretty decent golfer. But Poor Tom, he doesn't know the partner he picked for doubles. Actually, I play alright when I have a safety net for a partner. It's when I'm out there on the island of tourney disc golf that I flail about.

Tom and a couple other Funkytown Flyers are leaving in the morning and driving his motorhome down and… Continue

The best gift I could get around the holidays.

No, it wasn't a new Destroyer, nor was it a Revo bag. Nope, I already have a Mach III, it wasn't that either.

So, what was it, you ask?

Simply put, it was friendship, that's all.

About a week ago, a couple friends and myself decided to take a little road trip on Saturday back to my old stomping grounds. I moved about an hour away just over a year ago. The guys that went with me are guys that I started playing with after I moved and one had to cancell at the last… Continue
