So I'm back from my yearly visit to my parents in Phoenix and played Buffalo Ridge Park. (if you remember last time I played Fountain Hills). What a beautiful backdrop to a disc golf course. I met some locals, most who qualify for the masters division (maybe Grand Masters but i didn't ask), and a younger man who had an arm like a cannon. I was instantly noticed and asked to join their group when the Rosedale Am t-shirt i was sporting was spotted (and the KU hat, but some of you might geer to that). I am awful with names but a couple of the vets said they had come out to play the Wide Open a few times, one was an ex KU pat who was as big as a bear, tossed a disc a mile, and had the accuracy to boot. The course in my opinion was not hard but the main threat was elevation changes which on one hole made you feel like a god, and the next like a weenie. I took most of my pars, one bird and 6 Bogeys to finish at +5 which i though was respectable. It was a wonderful course over all, although I appreciate the technical difficulty of FH, I will say that Buffalo made great use of the terrain and landscape and you could say that there was an added benefit of actual hiking involved. I will post a few pic's when I can, but would highly recommend this course to anyone heading out that way.
