The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

Bellevue has so much poison ivy, it's practically in the air.
5 foot tall "stalks" of ivy line the fairways. It's disgusting. Other than that a good course, I'd never play it again, it's no fun trying to avoid it on every shot, See pics because I can't describe it in words.

Bellevue can get pretty nasty in the rough... yea, a fairly simple, flat, and short course that is covered with poison ivy or stickerbushes where ever you go.... but in the late fall, winter and ealy speing, good times!!!

With a sleeping bag and an air mattress, you can find a lot of good cheap accomodations in church parking lots in rural areas. We camped at the Assembly of God for the Penn State Champs.

Poison ivy is a tricky thing. Most park districts won't let you kill it if you ask. That discourages anyone who has any official role with a local club from doing anything. So who else can take care of it? Any disc golfer with an ounce of motivation gets drafted to some role of responsibility in his local club.

Don't ask me to be a club officer. I know what Round-Up is and I'm not afraid to use it.

bellvue is a fun course but its more geared to being played fall-early spring because of the ivy.

Last night's motel had a fence and a guard, I got gas and food before dark. Nuff said.

Note for anyone who doesn't like Ben's frank criticism of their course. You can go here and put your course into our course reviews and give it whatever rating you like. As can others who play it.

Yeah, Ben, tell us about the cheap motels!

Ben - I will say you do seem to be a bit preoccupied with the poison ivy report. I've had a few run-ins with it (one last year lasted 3 months) but you must have a red-spotted, scratchy past. Recommendation: why not come up with some shorthand, an acronym perhaps (e.g., PIE = Poison Ivy Everywhere) to put in your blog posts to let us know the course was ivy-infested. Then move on to more comments about the course design, your score, playing partners, etc. I think those are the things most readers want to see. Also, a little insight into the grind of driving and playing on a road trip - screwy directions, laundry, road food, sleeping arrangements, etc. Many of us are enjoying living vicariously through your trip - I'm waiting for someone to try to latch on and travel with you...

Sedgley...well, it's historic. You should check it out for postarity and the locals are friendly...good people...big turnouts for leagues/tags, etc ...just don't hang out in the local "neighborhood".
