Matt Dungan   July 14, 2012 at 6:22pm

Wow! we did it.

All 36 tee pads are now complete. This was a huge project. Much thanks to the State for all the digging and concrete moving with the tractor. Thanks to everyone else who came out and helped with wheelbarrows, finishing and all that other stuff. And a huge thanks To the Eagle Scouts who helped us get the hardest ones to reach done today.


Matt Dungan   June 23, 2012 at 8:50pm

13 more concrete pads finished today!

Thanks to all who came out and helped get us over the hump, 25 down 11 to go! Truck was there at 8:30 and we were done by 10 but it's funny how the real work is staying the rest of the day to guard 13 freshly poured tee pads that are scattered around a state park on a busy Saturday afternoon!


Matt Dungan   June 20, 2012 at 8:07pm

More Pads!

Concrete Round 2! The next set of concrete tees at the Portage Lakes disc golf course are on schedule to be poured on Saturday, June 23 at 8:30 AM. There are 13 tees to be poured and help is needed, as are wheelbarrows and finishing tools. FYI, the 12 tees poured last time look great! Several people (and wheelbarrows) who helped on the last pour will be out of town, so all help will be appreciated. So that we can know if we have enough help to proceed, please respond if you can help. Eve ... more


Steve Godar   June 13, 2012 at 9:48am

Tee Pads/ mowing

I will be at the course tomorrow for most of the day starting at 8 am to supervise. The state will be there with a tractor digging for the next phase of tee pads. This time we are doing the short tees down in the valley (2,3,18) and holes 5 thru 9 longs and shorts. 13 tees total for the next pour. I will also try to have them mow 15's fairway (it's a jungle) before our thursday league which is singles/doubles this week


Matt Dungan   May 15, 2012 at 5:43am

Forecast looks good

Concrete tees coming! At 7:30 AM on Saturday, May 19, we are pouring concrete for 10 to 12 tee pads. The mix truck is on order and we will be working from the parking lot by the PLDGC sign.
