Things have moved faster than anticipated and I am pleased to let you know that we now are planning to POUR CONCRETE for 6 to 8 tee pads this Saturday, April 14, starting at 9:00 AM! There is a catch, however. In order to prevent the concrete from solidifying in the mix truck, we need your help (and wheelbarrows) to help move concrete to the pad sites. The plan is to order the concrete on Thursday, so we need to know by Wednesday evening if you can commit some time on Saturday morning. Plea ... more

Please let me know if you can help, and if you can bring a wheelbarrow. For this first pour, we will be working from the parking lot with the PLDGC sign. I hope to hear from you soon and see you Saturday! Thanks. Carl Peterson

Jon DeCapua March 8, 2012 at 1:41pm
would love just a regular, ol fashioned, no mulligans, or weird formats, straight up PDGA sanctioned tourny here... just saying.

More clearing on hole 9 is always a good idea, It's looking a lot better since we've moved all the junk piles and pushed the right side of the fairway back. See you Saturday
Carl Peterson March 1, 2012 at 8:30pm
It's that time of year again! With the vegetation still dormant and the weather looking good for this Saturday 3/4, it's a good time to continue work on cleaning and clearing. I plan to work on the right side of the fairway on hole nine, or anywhere else needed (Matt, thoughts?) and then play a round afterward. I'll start by 8:30, but come anytime in the morning if you want to help.

When can disc golfers start buying those cool bag tags. I'm suprised they're isn't a picture of those bad boys for everyone to see.
Dan'hyzer' Kilgore September 15, 2011 at 11:40am
would love to join in on the fun but I have other plans scheduled. Darn it.
I bought a bag of 50 daffodils that I'm going to plant along the steps on hole # 14. Tis the season to go to the nurseries and other places that sell bulbs and plants and trees and get them at discounted prices. I always ask if I can get them for a couple extra bucks off because i would be planting them in the park system. Sometimes it works and sometime it doesn't, but it's worth the try...

We will be doing some course maintenance this Saturday 9/17 from 8 till 11 then we will play afterward. Come on out for an hour or two.

Aug. 13 is the last Saturday work day before the Grand Opening of the Portage Lakes Disc Golf Course (Aug. 20). We will start at 8:30, work to 11:00 and play afterward. Any time that you can contribute is appreciated. Areas that need work include: 1) weed whack/sickle fairways on 3 and 18, and the left side of the ridge going to 14s basket, 2) move the cut-up log and sickle/clear weeds near 15s basket, 3) clean and consolidate brush piles that are just off fairways (11, 12, 13, 6, 9 etc.), 4) clear a path from 18 to the 14th fairway for the mower. See you Saturday!

Come join Matt on Saturday (8/6) morning from 8:00 to 11:00 to clean up the Portage Lakes Disc Golf Course in preparation for the August 20 Grand Opening. Areas that need work: 1) Roll off the cut up logs near the #15 basket 2) Clean up areas just off the fairways on holes 11 thru 13 and also 6 and 9 3) Make a path to hole #14 from hole #18 so the mower can do #14 4) Dead hanging branches on #3 and #14. Could a rope saw reach them? Thanks!

I noticed that local Disc Golfer Bill Griffith tied for the 2nd best round in round 3 of this years World Amatuer Championships being played this weekend in the Rochester, NY. area. Way to go Bill, may the course be with you hacker the rest of the way------------------ - +

Come join us on Saturday (7/30) at 8:30 to clean up the Portage Lakes Disc Golf Course in preparation for the August 20 Grand Opening. There are couple of downed trees on #15 that require a large chainsaw. If you have one, or can borrow one, that would be a big help. General areas of focus: 1) Remove the tree leaning over the 18th tee opening, 2) Clean up areas just off the fairways on holes 11 thru 13 and also 6 and 9 3) Cut up downed trees on #15. Thanks!

Portage Lakes Pirate Days Tournament!!! This Saturday, July 23 at 10:00 AM at the Portage Lakes Disc Golf Course. $5 to enter a random draw doubles tournament. Partners are selected from A and B pools, but you won't know who your partner is until the end of play! See you there!
Dan'hyzer' Kilgore July 15, 2011 at 3:03pm
i wonder if we could borrow some of the State Park's tools? Like leaf blowers and weed trimmers? I mean if they're not going pitch in and we want to, but don't have the tools. couldn't we borrow theirs? I know I've had other park departments let us use their equipment in the past.
Another thing we should look into is finding a willing Boy Scout in the PL area that is interested in helping us with some landscaping on the backside of hole # 15 (terracing or a retainer wall) for their Eagle Scout Project.

There will be a work day this Saturday, July 16, from 8:30 to ~11:00. This will be the last Saturday before the 7/23 Portage Lakes Pirates Days tournament. Work that still is needed includes: 1) weed whacking (sickles, scythes, etc.) on 14 and 15, 2) drainage trench dug next to steps by 18s basket 3) benches (logs, etc.) placed at most tees 4) brush piles moved further off the fairways at the 15 dogleg and right side of 9
