The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

We hope everyone has a fine Thanksgiving.

I was reminded Wednesday of just how wonderful disc golf is; how well it can fit into your life. Tuesday evening, Matt Cunningham called me. He's a former local guy who moved back to Rhode Island a few years ago and was in town for the long weekend. He set up a round at Bandemer Park at 2 pm Wednesday. Mark Ellis and Scott Aikens also showed up for the round.

We started on Hole 4, because the out-of-towners parked at the South end of the park. We played doubles: Mark and Matt, Scott and I. Scott and I took their dollars (one each) by a single stroke when Mark and Matt each missed a 25-footer on Hole 3 the second time around. Essentially, we played even with each other but I did have a lucky hyzer putt around a tree go in from about 50'—which probably made the difference.

It was just very pleasant. Probably in the low 40s, but very little wind. Maybe 3-4 other groups on the 9-hole course. It was the first time Mark and Matt had seen Bandemer, so I was especially interested in Mark's take on the course. He didn't care much for the long tees on Holes 8 and 9, but otherwise seemed to think that it is a fine course. :)

So, I got most of a full work day in and still played 18 holes with buddies. Couldn't do that with ball golf. Looking forward to the Original Ace Race tomorrow.

Even better, during the round Ben called to tell me that he had just finished Rennie Gold, with Stan McDaniel and Alan Beaver, and that he thought it was the toughest course he's played (out of about 1030 courses). Ben should be finishing his trip and coming home in a couple of weeks. I look forward to utilizing his experiences in the design of the Lake in the Woods course.

I'd wondered what ever became of Matt. Glad to hear he's still playing.

What a game!
