Fellow Disc Golfers,

The official course map and rules can be viewed/printed from Johnson County PRD link

A variety of other parks to be enjoyed can be found at

NOTICE: Hole 4 has been removed. Previous hole 5 is now hole 4. A new hole 6 has been added across path from Hole 5, shooting towards the Administration building.

Please remember:
No Alcohol - will be enforced
Yield to all Pedestrians

Most fun wins!

We will be using flags for the tee boxes until we have a solid idea where the permanent pads will go. Soon we will install paver stones to define the tee boxes.

Come play the William Yates tourney if you're worried about time constraints with the Mighty Mo, especially if you consider yourself more of a rec/novice player. 

I have been encouraging people to play in that event based on what you are tlaking about TommyDee.  The Tournament is a 2 round event, and will be, the reasoning behind this is many fold, you can have one bad round and then kick arse in the second round and have a great day, or the simple fact is that as a PDGA event it must be 2 rounds (  ) in order to qualify as a PDGA event. 

With the PDGA worlds coming here next year, invitations are based on points that players accumulate over the previous year, so we want to have as many events as possible to ensure that local players will qualify.

The other suggestion in all honesty is to consider league play. Every DAY there is a league happening typically, that only requires one round to play in the evening during the week, or early afternoon on the weekends.

Dont let some phisherman with a national rating of 875 and a local rating of 901 tell you that you are wrong, he should be worrying about his putting and how he cries after an event like Jack Lowe, well he wishes he had excuses as good as mine is the real reason he is crying here!

I think that he is down to 25 of the orange ones......he may miss that one, as I think that it has a scuff on the left hand side of the disc, with a smudge on the bottom, and is slightly faded on top.......

I am sure that it was all based on the "ratings locally" so if you had no rating, you sorta got hosed, but if you had a rating, then I am sure that they put you in the right place.

The flyers right above your post have the information for the event on it, was there some type of information in particular that you needed that was not listed?

That is called a DROT (Disc at Rest On Top of basket) and unfortunately does not count.  Now if you were able to stick one in the side of the basket, and retrieve it before it falls, then that counts, but on top of the basket does not count.

SUX, sorry 4 ya.

Well a round was played by 6 of us on a slightly less windy day than the league on Friday, but still plenty-o-wind to make it slightly scary.

Remember our Saturday League rotates to the first Saturday of the month, to Blue Valley.  All other weeks it is at Cliff Drive.  I IMAGINE that there will not be a league during the Wide Open, so that league may get pushed to the 2nd week of June (June 14), please watch here for more information.

We started to do some single skins again, and then Morales showed up to make 6, and decided on Doubles-skins $.25/hole (man that is CHEAP!)

Teams were made:
Kevin Hart got stuck with Jack Lowe
Bryan Guthrie grabbed Mike Penney
Tracy Walker got stuck with the late arrival of Mark Morales

Kevin and Jack took home the most skins with 8, and shot a solid 60 on the course.

Tracy and Mark (who decided not to be shut out this week) shot a 64, but more importantly Tracy on 18 talking about what todo with the skins on 18 if there was a tie, proceeded to can a nice 40' to make the point moot and send us all home, they were able to take 5 skins home on this wonderful Saturday.

Bryan and Penney also took home 5 skins, and shot a 65 on the day, as Penney helped on #6 by PARKING the disc and helping the team get on the board early.

Afterward, just for FUN, jack and Kevin went to Cliff Drive, (didn't want to feel like we neglected it on Saturday) and though through the first 10 holes we were tied, the final 8 Jack blew up and shot a 63, and Kevin shot a take home $5 from Jack which was more than the skins at Blue Valley, as the winning team each received $1.50, but had to pay $2.50 to the club and ace fund for the day, so it cost the winners $1 to play Blue Valley, and the losers each had to pay $3.25 for the fun of Blue Valley.

Tags by Kevin and Jack were kept tight, though, and since no ace fund was hit, the ace fund will go up.

I am not running league, but my guess is that there will be no league until May 24.

Next Saturday is Mighty MO

Saturday May 17th-Disc Golf Day (rosedale-please help these events!!)
