big thanks to Jeff Gayhart for weed-eating hole 6's fairway, looks great. The park has been mowing the fairways and we will continue to keep up on the trimming.

Played this course for the first time yesterday in the Masters Tournament. Very fun but very challenging course. As others have mentioned, a few select tree removals to open up a few of the fairways would make it a bit less frustrating for us mere mortals. I would also like to see the concrete pads for the short tees exended about 3 feet to allow a proper walk up. I found myself crowded on those smaller tees which definitely affected my throwing.

But this is a beautiful course and I will be back. Well worth the 50 mile drive from Cleveland to play, though my score in the tourny will not help me in my quest to achieve a 900 rating.

A reminder that Wingfoot glow league starts on Monday Night. We will begin throwing at about 8:30!! 5 dollars gets you in, 1$ ACE fund, and we will have other prizes if we get a good turnout.

Holes 8 & 17 are now in their alternate/long positions along with 1,5,11,12 & 16.
8 plays about 30' longer and straighter with the basket closer to the road so watch your skips!
You can now see 17's pin from the long tee, it's still a turnover for us righties but not as blind and we can use the left gap.

I'll be here for a round at 330 with several club tags up for grabs. Come get some.

This Saturday 4/6, will do some clearing for the long basket location on hole #6, starting around 8:30 AM and ending at 11:00 to play a round. If you haven't seen the clean-up on #15 or played the alternate baskets, the weather is looking good for Saturday.

COURSE UPDATE; Holes 1,5,11,12 and 16 are in their long positions.
The moat on 15 is being cleaned and roped off (big thanks to Evan Adams).
The drop zone is marked near the small walking bridge-NO PENALTY
more changes coming soon, enjoy!

How's this course looking? Planning to play this Saturday possibly

hole 16 is now in it's long position to the right down on the flat near the lake. It's a longer shot over the water for righties to park it but still a deuce hole. Should be a bit easier for the lefties now too

Lost my pink older champ Sidewinder on hole 5. Hit a tree about halfway down the fairway, it bounced somewhere. It has no ink, a blue stamp and is 172g.
Tom Randau November 27, 2012 at 12:12am
planning on playing here tomorrow unless it's going to rain all day
Carl Peterson November 12, 2012 at 12:07pm
Thanks Matt. Can't wait to play it. Maybe Saturday.
Matt Dungan November 12, 2012 at 6:00am
hole 5 is now in it's alternate position straight ahead out on the point, please be courteous to the fishermen who sometimes share this fine spot. More alternates coming soon, enjoy!

If anyone is interested, Empire Darts (who sponsered hole 4) is starting to get a pretty large new and used disc selection. The store is about a mile and a half past the entrance of Portage Lakes. He buys, sells, trades. I told him I would help get his name out there (no perks for me, promise!) and he said if you mention you saw this on the Scene he will knock off a buck a disc. It would be nice for a local store to carry a large selection of discs.

Can't wait to try out some new pin positions! I heard there might be some longer tees as well. I'm seeing some pretty awesome possibilities for a long tee to long pin on 5.
Matt Dungan November 9, 2012 at 6:07pm
I will be at the course around 8-830 in the morning putting the sleeve in for 5's long placement out on the point if anyone wants to get their hands dirty out here, may work on another placement too but want to be playing by noon.

Good getting a round in with you matt at your home course sir looking good.

sorry guys, still trying to work on the couse designer about cutting those couple of trees down on the inside line over the hill on 17. About 8-10 big trees (maybe more) have fallen around the course this year and I guess the feeling is if we cut a couple down and more fall then it becomes to open. Just trying to be selective I guess. The left fairway is opening up even though I know everyone likes to cut the corner over the hill. We'll see, but for now enjoy the rest of the couse
