Tournaments / Re: Any feedback on Bear Hollow in Ava, MO?

I played it 2 years ago.

This DGCR description is pretty accurate:

Front 9 plays flat and around a small seasonal creek, back nine meanders up and down a decent size hill. Shortest hole is 143ft with major elevation and longest holes are both in the 360s.

The first 6 in particularly are very short and play VERY close to other park stuff like benches, baseball back stops, play ground, sidewalks.  My first thought when I played this was, 'how many times per year does someone get hurt here?'

There are 5-10 kind of neat holes. 

If you like to go on road trips / adventures and accept what a small town has to offer for a course, I'll think you'll be ok.  If you are looking for a quality disc golf course to really rip it on that is well thought out regarding placements, etc., you may be disappointed.

Me?  I like to play as many different courses that I can so I'm glad I played it.  I would consider going if it wasn't so far away.

yeah, I was really impressed on how short the grass actually was.  About the shortest I've ever seen it.

I only walked 4, 7, and 11 to get the new distance measurements, and overall, the course looked really, really good with a fresh mow. 

Doug told me baskets will be moved soon.  We're still 2 weeks out.

Intention is not to hijack this thread, but to inform some parents that have been watching for junior tournaments.

For those parents with Juniors, this year the Big Blue Monster on November 5th has Junior II (15 & Under) III (12 & Under) and IV (10 & Under) divisions available.  They will be playing the 9 hole course at Blue Valley Park in Kansas City, MO twice.  2 laps, back to back, without a break in-between.  Cost is $10 and each player will receive an Innova DX Skeeter.

There is a Junior I (18 & Under) division, but they will be playing the Big Blue course which will be set over 11,000 feet and costs $15.

Forgot to provide an update.  Usually post on facebook. 

We had 31 people come out and play on a Thursday.  That's pretty awesome I think.  Will probably do it again.  Weather stayed away and turned out to be a pretty good day.

Final results are here:

Tournament Central and player check in will be at Hole 10. Use the north entrance on the west side to get into the back parking lots behind the baseball fields.

Raymore Rumble week!

We have a good pre-registration list going at 42 players.  With the nice weather coming up this week, I would recommend you get signed up earlier then hoping to show up and get in.

Also, because we are using an A and B pool for different tee pads, while the tournament may not 'fill', your pool may be closed.

These divisions will use short pads:
FG1, MS1, FA2, MA3, FA3, MJ1, FJ1
Adv Grandmaster Women
Intermediate Women
Recreational Women
Adv Sr. Grandmaster Men
Recreational Men
All juniors

While the deadline for the bonus player pack has expired, all Ams will still get a player pack that includes:

A tournament stamped Innova disc and a choice of a t-shirt or sport sack.

 The other Innova tournament discs are:
 Champion Flat Top Firebird
 Champion Metal Flake Colossus
 Champion MF Aviar
 Champion MF Sidewinder
 Champion MF Tern

Dodge Unsanctions Disc Golf Pro Tour Championship

Break from PDGA will allow Bradley Williams, Paul McBeth to take part in the event


Disc Golf Pro Tour Director Steve Dodge announced tonight on the SmashboxxTV podcast and on the tour’s website that this weekend’s Pro Tour Championship in Vermont will not be PDGA-sanctioned.

Citing strained relations with the PDGA and Williams’ recent suspension, Dodge said “being a PDGA event is hurting the DGPT Tour Championship.”

“In good conscience, knowing that the goals of the DGPT are to build a professional Pro Tour throughout North America, we cannot continue to pretend to work together with the PDGA,” Dodge said. “The PDGA has consistently failed to communicate, put roadblocks in our way, refused to have discussions, and has suspended Pro Tour players without consulting the Pro Tour or the players.”

Since Williams is only suspended from PDGA-sanctioned events, he will be allowed to play this weekend. Paul McBeth, who recently announced that he would not be playing PDGA non-Major events in protest of the organization’s lack of transparency in disciplinary matters, has not confirmed his plans for the weekend.

Ultiworld Disc Golf will have more on this story as it develops.

Definitely a point / counter-point to all of this.

I think a big component is if you think BW was improving or keeping on with his own modus operandi.  How you view that topic is how you probably think the suspension is fair or not.  I can see it both ways.
