DDAR is Back!!!!

Due to it being just too much fun Hilltop will host a monthly Dirty Dollar Ace Race. The next one will be July 25th which is a Friday. This seemed like a good date due to no tournaments that weekend within 200 miles and being Airshow weekend I figured we would have a good crowd in town that weekend . If you missed it last time , the game is a ace race with a dollar paid in every hole , if noone hits it it rolls to the next hole where everyone buys in again . Lou dog hit a 269.00 dollar ace and J ... more

Adam Klein   July 11 at 2:58am

Hmmm, Who will be the first to ace alllllllll nine? Maybe a little honey money pot buy in? Now there's an idea!

Thad Murgatroyd   July 11 at 12:51pm

Pars on the new 9 ( Bear Cub)

You can now post your scores and aces on dgscene using the 9 am or pro 9 scores .The pro par is used as a rating par for the pdga .I was advised by Brian Schweberger that par 19 is the par the pdga ratings director would advise we use , so we used his advice .Every hole other than 3 is a 2 .hole 3 remains a par 3 .I hope this helps.

Tuesday Night Pitch and Putt League

Come on out !!! We will continue the Tuesday Pitch and Putt on the new 9 at 7 pm its a 10 dollar buy in with 5 going to payout and a 1 going into a ace pot . If you havent played the new 9 , its short , technical and a blast to play . We can either play it as dubs or single play . I lean towards dubs due to the low scores and speed of play . Hope to see everyone out .

Used Discs Donation Box for Oversea Soldiers.

It was suggested at a prior meeting and I figured we should step up . I will set up a box at Hilltop to collect lightly used discs you dont throw or need so we can give them to Operation Disc Golf to be sent to our troops overseas . I'm pretty sure that I can talk rick into giving you a coupon for a free round with a donation . Lets give back to those that sacrifice so much for us everyday. Thank you Thad.M Course Mgr

I went and looked at the new nine yesterday....it is looking really good. I hope ADGA members will get out there and help Hilltop. More courses means more places to play. Plus the sooner the nine is done the sooner the new 18 can get started...wink wink.
