Peter I challenge you to play the course. If you don't like it, I will personally pay your money back. I'd be willing to bet that you like it so much, that you'll buy a season pass. Peter, disc golf is growing rapidly statewide. The Hilltop course is a partnership between an established business in Anchorage (Hilltop Ski Area) and the ADGA to grow the sport. Now you can continue firing insults, criticisms and mockery at the courses, me or whoever. Not accomplishing nothing!!!! Or you can join t ... more

Peter, you're paying for the green fee of Hilltop AND the fee for doubles. These prices are different for non-ADGA members, so if you become a member then it is cheaper for you.

I'm confused, we're having doubles at a place we have to pay again instead of playing for free somewhere else?



Fairbanks sounds fun, but I doubt I'll be able to make that trip. Plus I have a grand opening of a course to go to this weekend.

Peter, it's normal Wednesday night doubles, but played at hilltop. They charge $5 or $4 for members. Hope to see you there!

Don't forget! The very first disc golf tourney in Fairbanks is this saturday at 4pm. They have put a tremendous amount of effort and money into this event! There will be golf All night, custom discs, food, putting and driving competitions, major prizes, and a huge players party at one of their sponsors establishments! This is a fund raiser event for a new disc golf club in Alaska. So let's show our support! Fairbanks has two great 18 hole couses (with one more in planning). WARM weather and dis ... more

What is with the price at Hilltop for doubles? Is that price per person or per team? That seems to be a lot for one person just throw some discs. You guys do BYOP or is it random?

Sounds Great Cas. Shoot Brian an email. He wants them gone by this weekend. I am out of town or I would help all the way. Cheers!

Seems a little strange to have a grand opening of a course on the same weekend as a sanctioned event....better planning?



I'm curious to see a pic of the container myself, but I don't really have a way to transport the item. I'll talk to one of my friends and see if I can't help get that stuff out of your yard Brian.



Sorry I couldn't make it Edan, I had full intentions of making it down; had a family emergency and had to go down to Kentucky.

Greetings! This post is in responce to Matthew's regarding to the shipping containers; they sound sexxy, can you post a pic? I'd hate for a good resource to go to waste... If nothing else I'll pro-offer my time & truck to haul 'em to the scrapyard and give the proceeds to the association.

For those who are not going to Homer this weekend, Hilltop is having a grand opening day. It will be all day Saterday. $1 dogs, burgers and lots of disc golf! Come out and have some fun! Also, Hilltop is looking to hire someone part time for the summer. If you're interested, contact Rick at Hilltop ski area. Nothing like working at a disc golf course!!!!!

Hello ADGAer's' The shipping containers that the baskets for West Chester Lagoon came in are in Brian Gutzwiller's backyard. These containers are free to whom ever would like to go and get them. I know they are worth money at a recycle/scrap metal yard. These containers are made of steel and they are heavy. You will need a truck and help loading them. Please contact Brian if you are interested in picking these up and making some money. You will need help picking them up-bring friends. ... more

Hey Som. I'll talk to John about that since we have the meeting tonight. That way we don't have a bunch of different layouts on there like WCL.

Great job on getting the course at Hilltop put together. Anyone submit the course details to dgscene so scores and such can be added and tracked for the newest course in Alaska?
