On behalf of Dave Smith:

I lost a disc at Hudson this past sunday in the snow. hole 18, a little more than half way to the basket. a red blizzard wraith, with my name & phone on it. I would appreciate a call it anyone finds it.

scrambles are cancelled today 1/5 due to the frozen finger fairway tour that's starting today at sims park. cheers!

Planning a work day for after the snow melts enough for us to drive in, down at Churchill Park DGC clearing fairways and putting up some natural targets so we can play and figure out the layout for when we get the baskets and tee pads in.

Have: Gloves, Boots, Cutting Implement.
I will bring for us to use: Twine, Drill, Screws, Saws, Shovels, Rakes and more.

If anyone can help, get a hold of me. I'll try to make it for a day when the most people are available.

Hey everyone! We here at Knollwood are trying to raise money for merchandise to sell for our cleanup and improvement efforts. Follow the link at the bottom of this message for a full description, a short video presentation, and the opportunity to either donate, or share my message with others.

I have just heard that the director of the City of Kalamazoo Parks department has resigned, so we have a new opportunity to truly change the image of Knollwood.

i just posted some trade stuff in the "trading post" of this sight. Ya'll get first dibs if interested.


Greg Platt    December 10, 2012 at 8:15pm

Changed in 2011 I believe.


eric centanni    December 10, 2012 at 6:59pm

greg is right. i poured through the rule book and couldn't find the rule that used to state that the obstacle could not be in front of your lie. it must have been changed in the recent years.


Greg Platt    December 9, 2012 at 8:44pm

It doesn't matter if the branch extends in front of your lie,if it obstructs your stance,you can move it.


Andy Morrison    December 9, 2012 at 6:44pm

It is surprising to see how many people, even in PDGA tournaments, that do not know these things. Good stuff. The one I'm always gray on is a downed dead branch that starts a few feet in front of your disc and extends through your lie and beyond where your stance would be if it were physically possible. My understanding is you cannot move it because it starts in front of your lie. Is this true?

Stephen Brown   December 12, 2012 at 10:10am

No, the rule was changed in 2011 to allow moving of casual obstacles even if it extends in front of your lie :

eric centanni    December 9, 2012 at 6:26pm

you are referencing the casual relief section, and yes, it is true. i have seen and used that casual relief many times, especially in inclament weather.


Bob Becker    December 9, 2012 at 6:06pm

It is my understanding that if a disc lands on a pile of brush, you can take up to 5 meters of relief behind the disc, since you get relief from downed limbs but the are not really this true?


eric centanni    December 9, 2012 at 5:52pm

This would probably be one of the most important sections of rules that any player should read and understand. You could help or hurt yourself in many situations during tournament play with this set of rules.


eric centanni    December 9, 2012 at 5:46pm

Rule of the week: A. After each throw, the thrown disc must be left where it came to rest until the lie is established by the placing of a marker. This can be done by placing a mini marker disc on the playing surface between the hole and the disc, directly in line with the hole, on the line of play, touching the thrown disc. A player may instead choose, without touching or repositioning the thrown disc, to use the thrown disc as the marker. The marker may not be moved until the throw is release ... more

Findley state park. Rt 18 an 83. Enter south of 18 off 83. Make a right an bear right till you see holes 1 and 2 off to the right in a clearing. Wellington is the city I believe


erock 216    December 5, 2012 at 8:59am

Is it 2013 already?


Dan'hyzer' Kilgore    December 5, 2012 at 8:36am

could someone please tell me the name of the Lorain county course? and how to get there.


Greg Platt    December 4, 2012 at 4:02pm

A cork might work for the defecating problem.


Jon DeCapua    December 4, 2012 at 3:22pm

practice? an't no-body got time for dat.


eric centanni    December 4, 2012 at 3:09pm

well... the act you speak of can be hard to avoid. if it is done literally you may be disqualified from an event. figuratively speaking of this defacation, you may have to work that out in your head. most of the time, a player just gets tired of leaving stink juice all over the course and has what alcoholics refer to as a moment of clarity. they then return home, wash off that cloak of failure and decide to practice more often.

when you are playing a round for scores, you should be showing off the skills you learned on the practice green. never thinking about how to play. just play.
