Found and Lost / Lost Yellow Underworld at S.M. #17
« on: May 20, 2014, 03:35:57 PM »
I lost my beloved Underworld on hole #17 @ S.M. Park this afternoon.  I threw it right smack dab in the front of the treeline straight off the teepad.  I guess I need to work on my turnover shots a bit more ;)    It is Yellow with no flight plate stamp (you can still see the Underworld stamp impression though), no other ink on the disc.  I would greatly appreciate the kind soul that returns it.  You can PM me or I'll check this thread over the next week or so.

Lakeside Hills / Re: Hole Distances

First let me say that hole 12 in the long position is freakin' awesome, I love it.  With that, I can't see any way possible getting a birdie on that hole unless it is a lucky second shot over the treeline that crashes the chains, or very lucky shot through a 5' wide low ceiling tunnel.  Either way they are not putts on the second shot, they are throws.  This would lead me to believe it is more of a par 4.  Just my thoughts and opinion, but like I said, I love Birdland and I love the new pin positions.

I'll play along.  My favorites in no particular order with qualifiers:

MetCenter:  this had a very unique "meadow" feeling, kind of cool, very long, sorta challenging.

Austin Ridge Bible Church:  perhaps the most elevation of the better courses in town.  Rough, rugged, very challenging.

Circle C Metro Park @ Slaughter Creek:  one of the prettier courses in town.  decent challenge but I would say the aesthetics are what this course is about.  I remember leaving this course saying that was pretty.  Austin is not particularly a beautiful place, the courses are predominantly dirt, dry grass, thick short trees, rocky, thorns and cactus, etc.  This one had green grass, whoa!

Roy G:  polarizing course.  Great holes, bad holes.  Beautifully designed holes and horribly designed holes.  The whole thing was a tale of two stories.  It was still a good enough course though that I could recommend it.

East Metro: Perhaps the most well-rounded of all the Austin courses I have played.  It had beauty, elevation, challenge, and was well designed. 


I can't rank them in order cuz that's biased, but if I only had one round to play I would perhaps choose East Metro or Circle C Metro.  Hope this helps.  By the way, none of these courses are like courses here so any of them would be a unique experience for you, have fun.

This opens up the "roller" opportunity I've always dreamed of on hole #8 at Lakeside!!  High-fives all around ;)

This kind of stuff is soooooo frustrating!!  I guess my questions are:  Is there a way to put a gate and lock this side of the lake like they do in sections of the other side of the lake?  Also, are there plans to put some kind of motion detector (perhaps a solar powered or battery powered) flood light in an inconspicuous place that can light they basket area up during the dark of the night?  This flood light can also contain a remote camera (like hunters use to record movement of animals).  My thoughts are the light may be just enough of a deterrent  that these offenders might scadaddle when 'lit up', and if not, the motion activated video recorder will roll tape and hopefully provide some evidence of who is tampering with our baskets (and perhaps catch a glimpse of their vehicle too).  I realize that there are a lot of other possibilities as to the when's/how's/why's of this, but I am wondering if there are proactive ways the city or the club can help curb the trending vandalism to this course...in particular the practice basket.  I also realize that this kind of thing may be easier to just 'deal with' and replace or repair broken things than it is to try and formulate some sort of action plan to stop vandalism in the first place.  I was just thinking out loud here because I love this course and the property it is on,and I want to see it stay beautiful in every way (for golfers and for the community that accesses the lake for sport or leisure).

I was playing with a friend but he was rushing back to get his bag and didn't get turned around in time to see my shot.  Hopefully it turns up, it's my bread and butter long distance disc.

Sorry bout that.  I lost it at Water Works, on hole 14 but it could have landed anywhere on 17 or 15 for that matter.

Tried pushing it ONE TO MANY HOLES last night and lost my precious orange blizzard boss.  It was getting REALLY dark, I stepped up to the tee box, put a good rip on it, because of the heat and high humidity my glasses flew off my face during my release and god knows where my disc went????  I scramble to get my glasses off the ground and on my face but it was to late...she was gone  :'(  I threw it off of hole 14 down (long hole down the hill) and I don't know if it went left, right, long, short.  I believe I had my name on it (Perry Martin).  Thx if you find it.

That was one of the best news pieces I have ever seen on disc golf, well done.  Mpls is a hot bed of dg and a great place to visit.

Awesome, thank you for clarifying that.  I just received an email from Rick and will wait for him to verify and then I'll head on down to DGW to pick up my tag.

You might have better luck posting this question on the Kansas Disc Golf Association's forums.

Thanks Phisherman.  Luckily I just received a text from a friend who confirmed it is mowed and ready to play!
