Grand Opening Photo Op For Course Designer Terry Calhoun alongside Lorie Szyperski, the main force that found the land and raised enough money for 18 baskets
The first Pinconning Disc Golf Club tournamnet sponsored in part by INNOVA was a huge success. Mike Siuda had low score of the day with a 56 round after a morning round of 59. The two scores totaled a winning score for AM1. Yes, it is a tough course to score under par. Mike also won the Overnight stay & Casino Package donated from Soaring Eagle Casino by driving in the long putt on number 18. Jamie Licht took the AM2 division by 1 stroke and Guy Gill (Blizzard Hills Rat Roc disc designer) won the AM3 division. Other prizes included gas cards, free meals, discs, t-shirts and more discs from our sponsors that included Garbo/7-11 Corporate Offices, The Forwards Corporation, The J-Bird Series, P.J.'s Pizzeria, godiscn.com, Sully at Westown Groceries and The Linwood/Pinconning Chamber of Commerce. Jamie Licht took the CTP on the 230 #9 and won the disc golf bag and discs, Guy Gill had the CTP on the short tee of #17 and Craig Prime hit the #17 long tee CTP to win a great gift package from the J Bird Series and then again on #8 to win the CTP for the 50/50 prize which was handed entirely to the course owner Ward Prindle. Jim Szyperski (started playing 4 weeks ago) held the longest putt and the CTP for the 50/50 right up to the final moments of the last rounds but still ended up winning the CTP on hole #3 and also took home the estemmed CTC (closest to the crapper) on the outhouse hole #16, way to go Jim. The very 1st. Blizzard Hills Ace still remains absent so there was a throw off from the short tee on #17 to determine a winner. Craig Prime ended up closest as his O.K. shot rolled it's way within 12' of the post. Keith Aten ran a GREAT tournamnet, played a couple of great rounds and set a course record on hole #8 that will most likely remain as THE record for all eternity. When you see Keith congratulate him and have him explain the fun of playing the #8, 170' hole over the Pinconning River.
