How are the bugs out there this year?

Matt Rinker   June 3 at 10:12am

Correct. They are not as bad as last year, but still bad. I'm in the process of pumping out all the water, which shld help in the months to come. We are also treating the standing water with mosquito killer to prevent new eggs from hatching.

Josh Beach   June 5 at 1:29am

Thanks Matt! It really is appreciated by all of us who play Burch to see our $ going towards useful things. Unless you don't work there, in which case you're just the man.

Matt Rinker   June 5 at 7:15am

Lol. I just started working there last month. Before then, I just volunteered.

Justin Abram    May 28 at 9:20pm

Some new lines opening up out here, as if by magic. Some good, some strongly favoring RHBH hyzers - not exactly something the course needed more of!

Matt Rinker   May 28 at 11:32pm

Just clearing out the invasive autumn olive. I planning on replanting so indigenous bushes to replace a few in the future.

steve nolff   May 29 at 8:38am

Sadly, Russian Olive must be dealt with. The impact is being felt on our disc golf courses throughout the region. Short term changes with long term benefits. Great work Matt, thanks for the hard work.

Justin Abram   May 29 at 10:17am

Glad to hear it's a growing pain. I've heard the same things coming from Hammond Hill a couple years back, and word from Toboggan is that you don't need spotters anymore. o.O In the meantime I won't argue with the strokes it saved me yesterday!

I will be heading down/up from Ontario on the June 7th weekend. My wife will be playing in the girls gone wild event at Sleepy Hollow, which means I am free pretty much all day Sat. This course looks to be one of the best in the State and since it's fairly close by, then it makes it a no brainer. Would any locals care to show me around on Sat? I'm sure I will be ready to play by 10 or 11am. PM me if possible.

Thanks, Chris

Not sure which hole but it shoulda been on the first nine on shorts to shorts.

Justin Billington   May 20 at 4:23pm

Devil's den.

Matt Rinker   May 20 at 4:56pm

K. I'll keep an eye out

Calvin J Cressey    May 17 at 5:09pm

What are the rules for hole 17?

Matt Rinker   May 17 at 6:25pm

you must land in the sandtrap to be considered inbounds. It's an Island green. If you fail to land in the sand, you retee with a stroke penalty. there is actually a sign withthe rules posted on 17s tee sign.

Ryan Martin   May 19 at 7:27am

multiple penalties do you continue to retee? also what if you land inside first shot, second shot goes out is the considered OB?

Matt Rinker   May 19 at 7:32am

Multiple penalties and retee, in tournament play there is a drop zone, so it would be fair to play it as a retee with no penalty as well. If your second shot goes out after the first lands in, it is considered ob.

How is the course looking? Flooded at all?

Matt Rinker   May 17 at 6:58am

There are some ravines that are up but the course is very playable.

Ryan Martin    April 1 at 9:16pm

Accidentally left a yellow star katana on hole 7 on river course on sunday.


Ryan Martin    March 29, 2014 at 9:11pm

Will be there bright and early tomorrow for the whole day.


Matthew "Tuck" Shattuck    March 20, 2014 at 9:34am

I'll be out at noon to play the short to short layout
If anyone wants to join feel free

Ryan Martin   March 25, 2014 at 11:47am

how was it?

Matthew "Tuck" Shattuck   March 30, 2014 at 8:23am

Not bad minus the wind

Doug Prizer    December 11, 2013 at 7:03pm

Erin and I set up some preliminary locations for short tee pads. Anytime you're out playing there take a look and see what you think. The idea was to make the course play somewhat easier without making it a joke. Any feedback would be appreciated.

Matt Rinker   December 11, 2013 at 11:05pm

You"'re a joke, Doug! ha

Matt Rinker   December 11, 2013 at 11:06pm

So is my punctuation... so yeah, the pads look pretty good. I'd change a few, but only if the park doesn't do anything to improve the footing.

Justin Abram   December 13, 2013 at 11:29am

I'm going out there with my lady today, I think we'll play them and see how it goes.

Matt Rinker    December 11, 2013 at 5:52pm

Hole 14 redesign. As of today, hole 14 on Rivers Edge has been redesigned. It is now a straight tight shot off the tee that finishes on a long righty hyzer. Approx distance is 410. I will have an accurate measurement for you all shortly.


Dan Hultin    December 11, 2013 at 2:24pm

Was practicing out on the field and left a purple bio fuzion tresspass out there... Just traded for it didn't really like it, probably said Zach Keasling on the back with his #. Traded for 14 of his discs. Threw them all and forget one doh!

Matt Rinker   December 11, 2013 at 3:33pm

check with the park staff, if they find a disc they hang on to it til someone claims it.

Joshua Siwek    November 6, 2013 at 1:29pm

Q .    September 5, 2013 at 2:11pm

Left my prodigy F2 under the pine trees, by the parking lot, last night at summer league. Did anyone pick this disc up? I will give a disc to whoever returns it to me.

Larry Dalimonte   September 5, 2013 at 9:22pm

Hey just an FYI I went out their earlier this afternoon to look for my lost plastic. By pine trees by the parkinglot I assume you mean the line of pines parallel to the parking lot. I searched up and down, I searched the field, and even the pines surrounding the field by hole one and saw no sign of ... more

Q .   September 6, 2013 at 6:59pm

Thanks it is gone. I had it during warm ups and just left it there I know it was there because someone was asking me if I liked it. I walked away from the thing. Too bad it was loving the new fitz course.

Tim Thomas    August 10, 2013 at 11:54pm
