To prepare the courses for the Summit County Disc Golf Championship (August 10 and 11), there will be a work day at Portage Lakes DGC on Sun. July 14 from 10 AM to 2 PM and at Hudson Springs DGC on Sun. July 21, also from 10 AM to 2 PM. Whatever time that you can contribute during those times will be appreciated. At Portage Lakes, the focus will be on clearing the weeds on the sides of #15, behind the ridge on #14 and on the sides of #10 (bring your weed whackers!). Thanks!

Dan Hyzer   June 21, 2013 at 6:10pm

And the afternoon swimming in the lake after that :)

Matt Dungan   June 21, 2013 at 8:03pm

Yep, gonna be a good day to visit swim beach once or twice.

Dan Hyzer   June 22, 2013 at 7:21pm

Work day was a sucess, continued clearing shoreline for "B" position on hole #6 and Matt added 2 more "B" placement sleeves on holes # 3 and #18. Then play a round with Mike Gaston (and his dog Bella), John Stuz, Jeff ?, Matt and I (with Dan Davis hooking up on hole # 12) . I don't know how the # 1 ... more

Txt me 7348834408. Don't know which course at what time yet.

Brian Shega    June 7, 2013 at 4:10pm

Left my red dx aviar last night at scrambles. Think hole 17, please message me if found does not have a name or number on it.


Jon DeCapua    June 7, 2013 at 8:28am

lost an orange z crush (in the water??) right behind the basket on hole 15. If anyone pulls it out or finds it i would be elated to receive it back. Thanks

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.

Portage looking good right now, watch out for HUGE poison ivy leaves tho. Cheezzus.

Team Jenkins   May 28, 2013 at 11:15am

Way to go Jeff .... That's what it's all about... If we ALL do a little somethinng it really shows........

Ryan Banks   June 4, 2013 at 12:08am

JonBoy, when you see the poison ivy growing up the trees, simply find the poison ivy root and sever it!!! If it's all along the ground, forget about it! Rhus Radicans!!!

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 ... more

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.


Matt Dungan    April 9, 2013 at 7:47pm

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.

Have fun!

Brian Shega   April 9, 2013 at 9:00pm

Thanks Matt. You guys are doing some amazing work out there.

eric " Sharky " boyd   April 9, 2013 at 10:29pm

I second , what Brian says !! Awesome job to everyone who helps support and work , on our local courses !!

Jay Kovach    April 7, 2013 at 2:30pm

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


Carl Peterson    April 4, 2013 at 10:46pm

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.


Matt Dungan    April 1, 2013 at 7:54pm

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!


Ben Calhoun    March 28, 2013 at 11:17am

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

Hi Ben, I don't know if this is to late and you've made your plans already. But if your going to play Portage Lakes this Saturday it would be cool if I could shoot around with you. Your the only 1000 course played member that I haven't played a round with and to shoot a round with you @ Portage Lake ... more

Ben Calhoun   March 29, 2013 at 4:35pm

Damn, I would have, but dad's sick, and we had to cancel the trip, for this weekend at least!

Dan Hyzer   March 30, 2013 at 1:41pm

I understand, Ben. I hope your Dad feels better real soon. Let me know when you plan to be in town again.

brett m    March 11, 2013 at 9:25pm

lost my white d aviar has name and number on inner rim

Dan Hyzer   March 12, 2013 at 7:04am

I found it. It was in the basket on hole # 10. I put your disc in the lost & found disc hole on thats on the kiosk. I'm sure if you contacted Steve Godar or Matt Dungan, that they could get it for you.

brett m   March 12, 2013 at 8:25am

thanks i really appreciate it.

Dan Hyzer   March 12, 2013 at 5:37pm

No problem Brett, i know i appreciate it when someone returns one of my lost discs.

Matt Dungan    December 29, 2012 at 7:31am

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


Matt Dungan    December 24, 2012 at 9:57am

tees are clean


Matt O    December 24, 2012 at 9:37am

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.


Tommy Milkshake 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.
