Anyone know when the Pumpkin Loop (A-F) is officially done? I take it we will have 20 holes then.

sunburst orange beauties look great.....easily some of the most scenic pin placements around

Left Orange Z Buzz on Hole 1 right side of fairway. Name on inside rim. Reward if returned.


Tim Thomas    May 13, 2012 at 10:09pm

Lost a disc in the pond out there. Has my info on it. It's a teebird. Will pay reward for it if it is returned to me.

That beehive has been there longer than hole 5.


Derek Stockford    May 13, 2012 at 9:21pm

Yea it was my first time on the course today and walkin on the edge lookin for my disc, I noticed them whizzin past my head and when i realized how close i was to a hive i almost crapped myself. Did not realize they were honeybees though. Ive had bad experiences stumbling onto hives before. But i loved the course and will play there again anytime :)


Mike Fortunato    May 13, 2012 at 8:08pm

Thanks for the heads up Derek, but these are in fact honey bees and are not aggressive. If you leave them alone they will not be getting any part of your ass. This hive is well documented and known throughout the Indy Lake community.


Derek Stockford    May 13, 2012 at 7:53pm

CAUTION ON HOLE 5!!! Left edge of the fairway about 50 ft or so from the pin theres a big dead tree with a massive beehive inside... You can see the traffic of bees goin in and out as u walk up the fairway. If ur walkin the left edge close to the pin watch out they will get ur ass!!

That's old news son! Mr. White was saying last night the new holes are close to going in and hole 16 will be epic! But yes, 13-16 will be down awhile


Kyle Greenhalgh    May 12, 2012 at 12:43pm

Holes are NOT in. Sign says closed till november. Only 14 holes are currently playable.


Mike "Papa Par" Even    May 5, 2012 at 8:56am

That is my buddy's Magnet. There are number of us on the scene that are friends with Zak. I can grab it from you, or I am sure some others might be in touch with you :)


Brandon LaVigne    May 5, 2012 at 8:49am

Found a magnet. Says "ZAK" on it.


Dan Whitlock    May 4, 2012 at 11:01am

Thanks for the info Mike, can't wait to play the new holes!


Joe Wander    May 4, 2012 at 8:16am

Earth movers + disc golf = lots of options to try out. Can they dig a few pot bunkers as well? I've always thought a nice hole would be a good hazard to add to a course. Thanks for the update, Fortch.


Mike Fortunato    May 3, 2012 at 3:04pm

Because of the new water park, the park is taking a bunch of the earth they removed from the old Picnic area (holes 9 - 11) and moving it to Chuck D. #16. They asked us to help them essentially terraform the land with tons of earth. Hole #16 is totally different now. It has two giant mounds where it used to be flat. The giant mounds effectively create a wall on the right side of 13's fairway. Hole #15's slope has also been altered. #14 has will not be effected. All of this should be do ... more

You guys are great, thanks for the quick feedback. I am excited to here of new holes, that is fantastic. Guess I will wait a few weeks to head out to I Lake. I am sad that I never got to play Picnic.


Dan Whitlock    May 3, 2012 at 1:02pm

Mike, new hole 16? So, did they replace the 13-16 with new holes as well as add 6 letter holes?


Mike Fortunato    May 3, 2012 at 10:43am

Yup. Sorry Steve. Picnic is a thing of the past.

Was out there this morning to mark the new locations for Holes A - F tee pads. The basket sleeves are set in concrete, grass seed has been put down. Now all were waiting for is the debris removal which is supposed to start early next week. There is s bunch of scrap metal, refrigerators, and other random **** buried in a few spots out there that need to be dug up and removed.

Then it's just a waiting game for the grass to take root. Pray for rain!

BTW, the new hole #16 is crazy sweet.
