The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

A couple of weeks ago I attended the public meeting about the course at Cobblestone Farm. Only 7-8 disc golfers, plus the parks planner (Jeff Dehring), showed up. We talked about the current rough layout and people seemed pretty satisfied with it. One good news item is that the supervisor of the county work had seen the map also and thought it was okay.

Even better, Dehring had spoken with him about the likelihood of disc golfer "trails" in the wetland areas, even showing him some photos of Brown Park when the course was taken out, and he seemed okay with that! We still need to worry about throws over the very protected area that could happen on the new hole 5.

This last Friday I met with Dehring at the park. He wants to move swiftly ahead with the holes that can still go in this fall, which would be 6-7 and 11-18. That would give us a loop of 10 playable holes, teeing off on the other side of the basketball court from the parking lot. 1-5 cannot go in until next year because that fence is now staying up all winter. 8-9 likewise cannot go in until later in the winter when it will be easier for the equipment to get back into the woods.

We also located a nice spot for a practice basket in the triangle formed by the paved walkway, the basketball court, and that very large rock.

I now need to get a few supplies and some volunteer help to begin seriously marking those holes which are going in this year, as quickly as I can find time. If you're interested in helping, call or email me: 355.0431, splendid@umich.edu.

I'll be there, Terry, unless my new job puts a cramp on my schedule.

I took the liberty of planting two (very short) tee stakes on the New Hole #12, trying to get an idea of the angles and the distances. Let me know what you think, if you see them. They're at ~160' (short) and ~ 200' (long), both with a look at the basket. The long tee stake is only about 10 feet off the path that runs alongside Old Hole #12.

I've been walking through the park shooting at trees with putters and approach discs, chomping at the bit for some real targets to run at. Can't wait for DG to return to Brow-- uh, "Mary Beth Doyle" Park!
