I will soon be in the general area of Denver/Boulder/Estes, hoping to play a few of that area's best courses. Probably more the direction of Boulder & Estes.
If you've played out there, what have you played? Also, what are the TOP 3 (+/-) courses to play in that area?
Thanks in advance!

I've heard the YMCA of the Rockies course in Estes Park is a good one.

Damen W   July 21, 2014 at 9:01pm

Rick Petrie    July 20, 2014 at 2:03pm

Whoa! When did they change the name of this tab from "Talk" to "Comments 2013" ?

Rick Petrie   July 20, 2014 at 2:04pm

Okay... apparently the "2013" was the total number of comments at that time. Interesting (kinda).

Mark Kewley   July 20, 2014 at 4:18pm

Mine says 2017 :)

Eric Weeden    July 20, 2014 at 4:17am

LOST DISC! Orange Claymore with trilogy challenge stamp. Hole 2 at Fairmont, left of fairway. Not yet labeled. If anyone finds it, please let me know.

Robert Belyea   July 20, 2014 at 10:19am

Eric Weeden   July 20, 2014 at 3:22pm

about 1/2 to 2/3 through the tunnel

Mark Kewley    July 19, 2014 at 8:54am

Disc Golf Planet TV is showing old footage of GBO. Just saw Kevin Tulp playing in the group with McBeth & Ulibarri. Pretty cool! http://www.livestream.com/discgolfplanet

Mark Kewley   July 19, 2014 at 9:04am

Edit- they are switching between groups. Looks like McBeth is on the other card. But still, playing with the big dogs.

The family and I are headed up to Omaha for the weekend. Any suggestions on courses in that area?

I don't know what your planned route is but if you went through Beatrice and play Chautauqua: http://www.discgolfscene.com/courses/Chautauqua_Park You will have a blast. At least on the front 9. BTW. If you have not been to the Zoo before, it can take a full day or more to see it all. I want to go again!

Rick Petrie   July 18, 2014 at 7:59pm

Nick, That Hummel Park course you favorited sounds cool. Can't wait to hear your course reviews.

nick samuelson   July 19, 2014 at 8:29am

yes Rick it does and thanks for the help guys and I can't wait to play. won't get to play until Sunday cause Saturday is zoo day. hope the rain stays away!!

Rick Petrie    July 16, 2014 at 1:59pm

Want to play Long 13 at Fairmont tonight? (League or Casual?)
If so, please meet around 5:30 to help get it moved for the evening.


Damen W    July 13, 2014 at 7:56pm

congrats to alan for all his circle 3's on Saturday and for the ace on 15 at Miltonvale

Alan Fox   July 14, 2014 at 6:07pm


Rick Petrie    July 10, 2014 at 8:01pm

but if you've got singles disc golf on your mind for Saturday, you might want to head to Miltonvale, KS for this one.


Rick Petrie    July 10, 2014 at 7:34pm

I've got Sunflower State Games on the mind. The disc golf tournament part of it is this Saturday & Sunday...
Here's the nitty gritty on it. http://www.sunflowergames.com/disc-golf


Rick Petrie    July 8, 2014 at 11:26pm

FOUND DISC. Shiny new Red DX Leopard. Tell me where you lost it & it's yours.


Jacob Patchen    July 8, 2014 at 10:53pm


I lost a White Star Destroyer on hole 17 at Fairmont. I clipped a branch and it went somewhere into the farther half of the tree line. If anyone finds it and lets me know I'd appreciate it!

Rick Petrie   July 8, 2014 at 11:23pm

We'll keep my eyes open for it tomorrow during our "Worst Lie July" round...

Robert Belyea    July 8, 2014 at 1:46pm

Lost disc! I lost a brand new bolt over the fence on 3 at Fairmont. Its blue/green no name on it as I lost it on my first throw:( if anyone finds it is love it back. Thanks guys!

Rick Petrie   July 8, 2014 at 11:21pm

I'll be sure to look for it if I go On The Wildside of that fairway.

Rick Petrie    July 7, 2014 at 11:47pm

Special thanks for Jon Tveite for heading up this project / challenge. Thanks to everyone who attended tonight's meeting. Your presence does make an impact. No hard feelings for those of you who couldn't make it... there will be future opportunities for you. Regarding the results, (in my opinion) we made some progress, even though probably not as much as some had hoped. Nonetheless, we did make progress in making sure Disc Golf will be a subject this fall in strategic park planning. ... more


Robert Adams    July 5, 2014 at 7:23pm


Ok, well, not really lost, just forgot about it. White 171g KC Pro Roc on the south side (road side) of the creek on hole 17 at Tuttle. Forgot to pick it up, got home and remembered it. If anyone grabs it, I'd appreciate it!


Rick Petrie    July 1, 2014 at 9:39pm

Shout out to Adam Johnson Bryce VanAmeyden and William Norris for helping move some baskets at the Fairmont Park Disc Golf Course tonight.


nick samuelson    June 27, 2014 at 7:36pm

Fairmont anyone????? Me and bon are heading that way now???

Rick Petrie   June 29, 2014 at 7:47pm

Sorry I missed that. I was knee deep in a Chipotle bowl by then.

Rick Petrie    June 26, 2014 at 12:11am

I believe we have arrived at a point in time that our organization, the Disc Fanatics of Kansas, needs to have an official online location to post large video files. Any suggestions?
More details to follow. Thanks.

I don't remember. I'll have to check them later tonight.

Rick Petrie   June 26, 2014 at 10:38pm

By the way, this would be to post videos of the 4 presentations (to the City) it took to obtain permission to build the current Warner Park Course. The videos would be posted so local players could get a sense of what it is going to take to the the Next Nine holes at Warner approved.

Rick Petrie   June 26, 2014 at 10:42pm

... plus a video from a while back when we updated them on the status of the current course & asking to proceed with building the Next Nine.

Rick Petrie    June 19, 2014 at 12:30am

Shout out to William Mitchell for spotting my disc (while playing on a different card) tonight at league on #6 at Warner .
Also to Bill, Mark & Kevin (Schwarz) for sticking around after league to help look for a different disc.
Net result: Both discs found!

maybe you should invest?

Rick Petrie   June 19, 2014 at 9:32pm

Ya. I bought one the day they were released (April 1st) then lost it at the GBO. Sucked to lose it, but it sure is fun watching where the guy goes that found it. http://www.colourbox.com/preview/4660918-131376-main-air-routes-in-africa-and-madagascar.jpg

Rick Petrie    June 17, 2014 at 7:27am

#13 moved to the island tonight for DFOK DOUBLES? I'm thinking YES.

Mitchell Brenn   June 17, 2014 at 7:46am

Hell yes.

Mark Kewley   June 17, 2014 at 10:56pm

I enjoyed playing the long placement that is only available for events like leagues and tournaments. I would imagine if you show up next Tuesday it might be there again ;)

Rick Petrie    June 15, 2014 at 10:10am

Happy Fathers Day to all the DFOKers who are dads. I know there's a bunch of you out there balancing dad duties & disc golf... I especially want to thank those of you who find time to help make our courses & events better, while being a dad too. Thank You Times 2!
