This could be the last winter before disc golf takes its first step into the mainstream. There's been a couple of ESPN ace highlights in the past year. The sports network sees it as a novel, quirky highlight opportunity to keep viewers' attention, and the interest of the broader publicly may have been collectively piqued? In 2016 the mainstream sports fans will be able to take a closer look. There will be 3 new pro-tours debuting next year with strong financial backing, including a wor ... more

FYI, I just received word that County/City crews are at Fairmont today doing some tree maintenance work.
They will do their best to not adversely effect the fairways, but first & foremost their responsibility is to make the park safe for all users...
I'm as eager to see their work as anyone. I doubt anything dramatic changes will occur though.
Stay tuned for future opportunities (this fall/winter) to have them address any specicic issues we (disc golfers) identify.

On hole 4, they cut one of the main trees across the road, making the gap easier to hit.

Rick Petrie   November 4 at 8:39pm

Thank AJ, any other trees of note? They've got a tough job of leaving dead stuff as long as then can, without falling over on top of us. I know they want to take out the dead tree in the middle of the gap/fence on #9... but they're watching it...

interesting interview on allthingsdiscgolf about future course design and development for underutilized landscapes:

Rick Petrie   October 20 at 10:32pm

Thanks for posting a link to this. I read the entire thing. Do you happen to have contact info for the "Joshua Wilcox at Kansas State" that you quoted in the article?

Rick Petrie    September 21 at 10:43pm

Question regarding the pin placements for the FHO:
1. Who is available to meet at Fairmont Park on Wednesday evening to decide the pin placements to be used at the FHO? We could also put them in the "morning round placements".
If we tackled this on Wednesday evening, (a) we would not have to do any basket maneuvering later in the week, and (b) we could get a couple days of practice on that specific layout.

Side Note: Also, please consider helping mark the O.B. lines on Friday evening.


Rick Petrie   September 22 at 10:34pm

For those of you who what to help Wednesday night, let's meet by the practice basket at 5:30pm.

A.J Cruz   May 24 at 6:53pm

Black towel?

Mark Kewley    May 20 at 10:10pm

I found a disc at Tuttle last night. Let me know what you are missing...

Mark Kewley   May 24 at 4:06pm

Discraft disc

Rick Petrie    May 3 at 9:42am

Heck yeah! It's now Little Apple Open week!

I'm going to try to get in 2 rounds at Tuttle, if my shoulders and neck let me (old man issues).

Exact times I'll be out there tho... ? Not sure, maybe 11:00-12:00 ish.

Just saying it would be cool to see a lot of y'all out there today.

We gotta defend our turf on Saturday!


Rick Petrie    April 20 at 8:46am

With another hectic week of disc golf work and play in the Manhattan area, I'm thinking we should cancel this month's DFOK Meeting (set for Thursday night). OR at least postpone it until the first week of May.

Any suggestions?

Also, if you have a pressing topic for the meeting that can't be delayed, please contact me ASAP.
