Disregard above statement. I'm losing track of my days now that SCHOOL'S OUT FOR THE SUMMER! SCHOOL'S OUT FOREVER! HAHA

Max Saxton   June 11 at 9:36pm

Fast times at ridgemont high Harold.

Jim Knudson   June 11 at 10:00pm

The PARK had the basket re-installed with concrete just as they said they would by league time. They have become very cool. Nice work Matt!

Harold Fernando    June 10 at 8:52am

So I was playing with Dan, Jim, and Matt yesterday when some very rude ****s started throwing on us while we were still playing hole 12. Then they almost hit Jim on 14 yesterday! This was at Fitz. Same kind of **** happened about a couple weeks ago, different group. WTF!?! Some of these new players REALLY don't understand common courtesy or common sense!!! I mean when there is a group on the hole in front of you, one DOESN'T throw until they are clear!!! I wanna thank Mitch Winters and ... more

I dont typically like to raise my voice, but those guys were clearly out of line.

Mitchell Winters   June 11 at 12:09am

Thanks Harold!! But seriously though u guys should let people play through if u Guys r gunna take ur time. Cause ur group can be slow

Harold Fernando   June 11 at 9:47am

Trust me Mitch we would have if they weren't being such ****s, and I agree with Jake, they were way out of line. Josh I'm gonna tell you the same thing I told Jim ;) Good play on words Rinker!

I guess that's what you get when you eat with a coupon. It was A & W after all. Bummer food poisoning sucks.

Shane Underdahl    April 28 at 1:10am

Played the Vibram Birdie Bash on Saturday with a couple friends. Two of us used the A&W coupons afterwards and got violently ill. Did anyone else get poisoned?

yeah, now that I look back and actually went to your about" page, I understand it....sorry, didn really look at them close, just wrongly assumed.

Matt Rinker   April 23 at 1:47pm

Good, then I'll see you at League!

Chris Eberhard   April 28 at 9:33am

Hey Matt, Very sorry, but I'm going to have to bow out for leagues, looking at upcoming schedule and it's just not realistic for me to make it 16 of 20 weeks. I'll gladly chip in some cash for last week, whatever that would have been, it was a lot of fun.

Davis _    April 19 at 10:16pm

Did anybody lose a disc on hole 17 today? It was like 20 feet past the basket.

This Saturday, November 9th, we are hosting a fundraiser at the Michigan State University Disc Golf Club! We are hoping to raise enough funds to put in our three missing baskets, get course signage, and help send our team to Georgia for the NCDGC! We have several CTPs, and will also be having a raffle and ace pool. Come on out for a fun day of golf on our new layout!

Fitz had a fundraiser last weekend.

Eric Savoie   November 6, 2013 at 4:17pm

I'm aware, this is a separate fundraiser to support the Disc Golf Club at MSU. I was hoping that some people that play at Fitz/in the Lansing area would be willing to come out and support us.

Harold Fernando    October 24, 2013 at 9:48pm

Some jackhole casuals took the basket out of the ground on 13!!! Prickos!!!

And yes we put it back in as best we could without the proper tools.

Mike Spagnuolo   October 25, 2013 at 7:16pm

good

Harold Fernando   October 26, 2013 at 10:14am

yeah it is good. has anyone played there recently to see if it's still in the ground?

Jim Knudson    September 27, 2013 at 10:15pm

Had some bees swarming around the bottom of the tree closest to the basket on #3 tonight.
Bee careful tomorrow Mr.Spags!! I'll take a picture and sell posters this time. :)

There many nice pics of the holes on the info page. Now that many are obsolete, how do you preserve them on DGS without confusing people who want to remote-prep for tournaments/etc.?

Matt Dimick    September 20, 2013 at 7:02pm

Went out and measured all the holes today with Mike and Harold and the new distance for the course is 5528 feet from the pro pas and 4977 if you play the 3 am tees.

That's about 500 more feet and 4 more strokes. Most 500 foot holes would be a par 4, so it all makes sense!!

Justin Abram   September 21, 2013 at 2:01pm

Did the pro tee for... 6? get sorted out and moved like there's been talk of?

Matt Dimick   September 21, 2013 at 3:10pm

Not yet. But it's in the works

Geoff Shaw    September 20, 2013 at 2:05pm

playin a round soon if anyones down to join

I'm coming to try Fitzgerald before Open/9.28. Pics of prior layout are presumed outdated..so, I'm hoping to go when other players gather. What's a good day/time to find knowlegable players on the course? BTW - The current pics do show a land and tree environment that ensures good design choices. Given the people involved I'm confident the new layout will intrigue us.

Fred, I can play Saturday or any day after 5pm.

Doug Prizer   September 10, 2013 at 6:01pm

I'll be out there with a group on Thursday after work.

Fred Vocino   September 11, 2013 at 11:05am

Thanks guys..Thurs and Fri are not good for me. I'll get with Jim and post on "play here".

Jim Knudson    September 4, 2013 at 2:19pm

I use and carry 2 less discs in my bag for the new layout. Easier on old guys!
I will do a complete review after playing it a couple more weeks.

I did notice while playing yesterday with the heavy traffic due to Labor Day that hole 5 on Fitz's new layout can be a potential problem due to people grilling out on the picnic tables close to that rock pile. Can we move these tables so it's not on the fairway? I had to alter my upshot because this guy was grilling and just staring at me, and I sure couldn't throw where I wanted to. I guess some people still need to be educated that there are flying objects at that park. Furt ... more

The totally pained expression on Harold's face while he was trying to find a line around the picnic tables was PRICELESS!!

Jim Knudson   September 4, 2013 at 2:09pm

At least there were no bees hiding under the tables.

Mike Spagnuolo   September 4, 2013 at 4:18pm

nice

Chris Booker    September 2, 2013 at 7:46pm

Hey guys. What's par now for the new layout? From pro pads where available?

Mike Spagnuolo   September 2, 2013 at 7:49pm

Harold Fernando   August 30, 2013 at 12:38am

Cool. One from the woods?

Matt Rinker   August 30, 2013 at 12:45am

no, someone threw it down a hill/cliff at the park.

Mike Spagnuolo    August 27, 2013 at 10:51pm

Hole 13 has been stolen. Working on a solution
