Course is looking awesome. When they put in Concrete tees, please start with hole 16. It's the only hole that I have trouble with my footing. Lost my orange Z Surge in the lake today :(. I'm glad there's a course this nice that's so close to where I live. Very nice job!!!

Aug. 13 is the last Saturday work day before the Grand Opening of the Portage Lakes Disc Golf Course (Aug. 20). We will start at 8:30, work to 11:00 and play afterward. Any time that you can contribute is appreciated. Areas that need work include: 1) weed whack/sickle fairways on 3 and 18, and the left side of the ridge going to 14s basket, 2) move the cut-up log and sickle/clear weeds near 15s basket, 3) clean and consolidate brush piles that are just off fairways (11, 12, 13, 6, 9 etc.), 4) clear a path from 18 to the 14th fairway for the mower. See you Saturday!

Come join Matt on Saturday (8/6) morning from 8:00 to 11:00 to clean up the Portage Lakes Disc Golf Course in preparation for the August 20 Grand Opening. Areas that need work: 1) Roll off the cut up logs near the #15 basket 2) Clean up areas just off the fairways on holes 11 thru 13 and also 6 and 9 3) Make a path to hole #14 from hole #18 so the mower can do #14 4) Dead hanging branches on #3 and #14. Could a rope saw reach them? Thanks!

The tree that was leaning over blocking 18's long tee shot is gone, Thanks Jay for bringing the gimongus saw.
Jay Kovach July 29, 2011 at 8:42am
I maybe able to donate a hour or two with the gimongus saw. Let you know.

Come join us on Saturday (7/30) at 8:30 to clean up the Portage Lakes Disc Golf Course in preparation for the August 20 Grand Opening. There are couple of downed trees on #15 that require a large chainsaw. If you have one, or can borrow one, that would be a big help. General areas of focus: 1) Remove the tree leaning over the 18th tee opening, 2) Clean up areas just off the fairways on holes 11 thru 13 and also 6 and 9 3) Cut up downed trees on #15. Thanks!

From what I understand.... Since this "Pirate week" in the Portage Lakes the PLDGA wanted to join in on the fun by having a little treasure hunt of our own. Everyone will play singles then after all the scores are tabulated, then the teams will be established by a random draw method and then I'm confused on how it will go from there. It's only $ 5. 00 to play, so no one is going to get the BIG TREASURE, but it should be fun with a little twist. I know I didn't really give you the answer that your looking for, but I gave the details on how the pairings will take place.

So its kind of like the single/ doubles we did a little while back?

Portage Lakes Pirate Days Tournament!!! This Saturday, July 23 at 10:00 AM at the Portage Lakes Disc Golf Course. $5 to enter a random draw doubles tournament. Partners are selected from A and B pools, but you won't know who your partner is until the end of play! See you there!

There will be a work day this Saturday, July 16, from 8:30 to ~11:00. This will be the last Saturday before the 7/23 Portage Lakes Pirates Days tournament. Work that still is needed includes: 1) weed whacking (sickles, scythes, etc.) on 14 and 15, 2) drainage trench dug next to steps by 18s basket 3) benches (logs, etc.) placed at most tees 4) brush piles moved further off the fairways at the 15 dogleg and right side of 9

Evan and I pulled some discs out of the water on #14 and #5 today. Dan Clark's R-Pro Pig, Mike Unger's Champion Roadrunner, Billy Houston's Star Stingray, Jon D's Star Destroyer and a no name nuke. We will bring them on Thursday.
Dan'hyzer' Kilgore July 2, 2011 at 2:32pm
we tried unsucessfully to get an orange disc this past thursday (Don't know if it was yours or not, but if has your name and a contact #, we'll do our best to contact you). I hope people don't throw the nice sticks we have near the shore into the lake (for retreaving discs) like they do in Canton.

Lost White Pro Starfire on hole 15, skipped by pin and into the water on my drive.
Jon DeCapua July 1, 2011 at 12:03pm
lost white/gray star destroyer on hole 5, thought it was parked. must have gone in the water.
Dan Hill July 1, 2011 at 12:51am
I have a few discs in the water on holes 14 and 16. A glow nuke, ch leopard and orange z crush. I'll reward whoever finds any of them.
Dan Hill June 23, 2011 at 12:43am
Played the back 9 today for the first time. All I have to say is you guys all did a really great job! There's still a little bit of brush that could be cleared out but nothing serious, I'd consider it my favorite 18 in Ohio now. Multiple lines to follow, but very precise golf shots. Thank you and Congrats to you all on making a great disc golf course. It was WELL worth the wait.
Nino Deiulis June 21, 2011 at 4:31pm
Lost a disc on hole 7, a Blue/Green tie-dye Star SL. Yes, that's right, one of the most open holes on the course. I threw it a little high and to the right and it hit the 3rd or 4th tree up. I have no freakin idea where it went. I looked for at least 45 minutes. Please call if found.
Carl Peterson June 16, 2011 at 8:22pm
Work day Saturday 6/18 (8:30 to 11:00). We will clear the former swampy area on 15 near the basket and also clear and move brush further back on the left side of the dogleg on 15. Also, the tee area on 11 needs to have poison ivy and brush removed and weeds need to be wacked everywhere on the back nine. We will play all 18 afterward. Come early and clear your own routes!
