The 3rd Annual Fuzzy Pony Tournament just got BIGGER and BETTER than ever!

When: Sunday, April 3rd, 2011
Where: Baldwin, Kansas

...New this year: The Fuzzy Pony will be played on 3 private courses: Running Horse Proper, 7830 foot 18 hole par 58, the Fuzzy Pony Tournament Course, 3,542 foot 9 hole Par 29 and Dogwood, a newly designed 6530 foot 18 hole par 58. Each course has its own unique challenge and feel.

What hasn’t changed: 100% payback, music throughout the course and a great Disc golfing experience whether you’re looking forward to a challenge or just a great time. The Pony offers it all.

Cost: $35 entry fee.

Extras: $7 more gets you lunch and dinner. Add an additional $7 and enjoy unlimited beer from the award winning 23rd St. Brewery. With all proceeds and donations going to the Lawrence Humane Society.

Divisions: Will be determined after registration closes.

The Grand Finale: So where do you want to be April 3rd? At home wishing you were here or playing golf with some great folks on a challenging layout with delicious food and drink? That’s what I thought but you better act soon. The tournament is limited to the first 64 entrants. So don’t delay, send in your entry form as soon as you get one (hope to get them in the mail first week of February). Didn't get one last year then send an email to halbaby1685@gmail.com and get on the invite list!

General Banter / Do you use a pre-throw routine?
« on: September 08, 2010, 06:40:03 AM »
I have noticed that toward the end of the second round in tournament play I give away too many strokes.  To try and limit this I am thinking of using a pre-throw routine to try and increase my focus on every throw in the hope that it will pay extra when I am most mentally tired.  Do you use a pre-throw routine and if so what are the steps?

Thanks,

Dave

General Banter / Quad City Courses
« on: July 14, 2010, 08:05:43 AM »
Just got back from the Quad Cities and had the pleasure of playing some great courses with my fried Ed Wilken and a local we met on the course nick name Toad.  The first course was Camden I, http://www.dgcoursereview.com/course.php?id=833, fairly short but well thought out challenging 18 hole course.  Camden I served as a perfect warm up for its big brother Camden II http://www.dgcoursereview.com/reviews.php?id=3425&mode=rev.  While I have never played NC courses Ed has and said it was reminiscent of that style of course.  There are defined fairways, lots of timber and elevation changes.   The biggest difference said was the underbrush and while there is not much underbrush in NC there was plenty of that here.  If you drifted off course you were in the crap and the search was on.  As far as length goes I would put it on par with Water Works.

The final course we played was West Lake http://www.dgcoursereview.com/course.php?id=2418.  This is best described as Blue Valley with TONS of water in play and tough to hit fairways.  West Lake is a 24 hole course that has both Am and Pro tee pads.  Ed and I teamed up to challenge the Pro placement, but only got through about 12 holes before we were rained out.   In that 12 holes I lost about 5 discs, but still had a great time on a very very tough course.  If you have a big arm and want a challenged this is the course for you.

If you ever get near the Quad Cities these are three courses that are well worth playing and the people were over the top kind.  Toad, you do the disc golf work proud with your kindness to guests if you are out there thanks for being our guide.

General Banter / MP3/Music Players
« on: May 02, 2010, 07:33:01 AM »
At both GBO and Wyco I played at least one round where one of the players in the group utilized an MP3 player.  In these groups the overall social structure of the foursome was different than when none of the players used an MP3 players.  While I am not sure if ball golf has a rule against MP3/Music players, I personally have never seen/participated in a tournament where a player has utilized one.

« on: April 07, 2010, 07:01:09 AM »
This is the first pass at finding the rightful owners for all things left at the Fuzzy Pony.  Not done with the clean up yet, so there may be more to come.

  • Black Fade Bag with Fade Strap, 20 discs and none with names (except the Rock I donated and you bought), red Chiefs towel and Ford Keys on a boxing glove key ring
  • Carson Wilson's - Blue Champion Sidewinder (sorry Carson, but you didn't write your phone number or email on your registration form
  • Yellow very faded "Deschu???? Open" rock type disc
  • Plain black jacket
  • Black jacket with white embroidery

Give me a call and I will get these returned to you.  FYI, forgot my cell today so just leave a message and I will call you back tonight :-(.

What do you get when you cross 50 good people, 36 holes of golf and two kegs of beer?  Over $2000 raised to benefit the Lawrence Humane Society. 

Great job everybody,

Tournaments / Fuzzy Pony 2010 Details
« on: March 29, 2010, 01:00:17 PM »
The Fuzzy Pony is full, thank you to everyone that signed up and to those who have tried to. Tee time for the Fuzzy Pony is set for 9:40 am April 3rd with a players meeting 30 minutes before.  There will be parking in the circle drive and behind the barn.  Just pull up to the barn and do the best you can to stay out of the yard. 

When you arrive, please come hungry! We will be selling large plates of Biscuits and Gravy for $5 (yummmmmmmy). Also clean out your car, trunk, basement and anywhere else that you have unwanted discs you are willing to donate. Instead of having a disc reseller we will be reselling the donated discs. If you see one you like, please know that ALL money raised at breakfast, tips and “recycled” disc proceeds will support the Lawrence Humane Society. Itʼs OK if you donʼt have any to donate. 

Check the website for details and last minute changes.  http://discthehorse.com.

It's Finally Here....
....the 2nd Annual Fuzzy Pony Tournament, April 3, 2010 in Baldwin, KS. If you’re looking for a challenging course or just a great time, this is a day you will not want to miss. The Fuzzy Pony is played on two private courses: Running Horse Proper, 7439 foot 18 hole par 58 and the Fuzzy Pony Tournament Course, 3,542 foot 9 hole Par 29. Both will challenge you with timber and elevation changes as you work your way back and forth across the valley. There will be two rounds of 18 holes followed by awards and doubles (light permitting or bring your own).

What does your $35 entry fee get you? 100% payback, course music and great camaraderie. You want more? Add $7 dollars and get both lunch and dinner. Another $7 gets you unlimited beer from the award winning 23rd Street Brewery in Lawrence. Alright, it’s limited in that we will have 3 kegs. (We want you driving home happy, not delusional). The field is strictly limited to 45 players so...YOU MUST PRE-REGISTER. Divisions will be determined after registration closes. Be one of the Lucky 45 and don’t miss out on your chance to play in this year’s invitational. Ask anyone that played in the 1st Invitational, it is a time to remember.
