1st time at Smithville
« on: July 10, 2012, 01:45:14 PM »
So some buddies and I have never played any of the three smithville courses and we decided this Saturday (July 14) we will go play all three.  Here's our schedule right now.  We will try our best to stay on this schedule. 

7:45am - 10am Beaver Creek
10:00 am - 12:30pm Black Thorn
12:30pm - 2pm Lunch (likely at Brick House Cafe & Pub or O'Rhilee's Pub & Grub)
2pm - 4:30pm Woodhenge

We're also going to a blind draw partner game for each round for $2.  Everyone plays their own game, then at the end of the round, you draw for your partner.  Lowest total score of both partners wins.  This should keep everyone engaged throughout the round.  We'll also do a bag tag challenge for the entire group.  After each round we will settle up on the doubles $ and bag tags.  In order to keep our schedule, we'll have groups with no more than 4 players on each card.  You don't have to come to all three rounds, if you want to play just one round and head off that's fine.  Let me know if we should look for you.   

By the way, I have bag tag #4.

Jake, I'm going to be at Legacy league Friday and I'll bring that Starlight Destroyer for you to check out if you want.

2.5 hours at both Woodhenge and Blackthorn, w/o knowing the course, is a very brisk pace. I'm assuming you'll have 4+ golfers...

Good Luck my friends! You will be thoroughly tested!

It is, we'll see.  And as I said we'll limit the group size on each hole which will help with speed of play.

I'd love to join you for this extravaganza, however we have a BB tourney this weekend. However, I'm hoping to be able to make Friday league with Ace beer! I'd love to see that Destroyer. I traded the Boss to Jordan. He says it's a meathook!

You can make BT and BC in 2.5 hours but I doubt it on the big course. I played Woodhenge yesterday by myself in about 2 hours. Man I love that course!!

Victor Ashe is a decent course.  Kinda boring though, long and open.  Well maintained though. I'd play Morningside or Groves Park over it though.   Morningside Park was recently redesigned and is suppose to be really cool.  I haven't played since it was redesigned, but I would try it since the park was pretty cool.  And the Groves Park (Mounds) in Oak Ridge, TN has 27 holes which are really cool, probably about 15 minutes away from Knoxville.  Former ball golf course converted to disc golf.  Best map with new 9 holes are at http://www.pdga.com/course_directory/course/groves-park-0

Have fun!

Looking forward to a lot of golf Saturday.  Sounds like Jake and Jordan's bag tags are safe for now...  :D

They'll be back in play soon enough Vince ;)

Thanks for the heads up Eric. Will probably play morning side park now, hoping baskets 1 & 5 are in the ground. Sounds like they were pulled due to construction in early summer.
