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.

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.

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

Matt has done a great job on the course(huge understatement)I would hate to see what condition the course would be in without him. He had the perfect trees marked for removal creating an inside and outside route off the tee on 17,this adjustment would reward a well placed throw,allowing you to follow a lane towards the basket or at least the putting area.As it stands you can hit your intended gap but with no reward for doing so,there's no line to follow,it takes more luck than skill to get to the basket.

understandable, that course is atoll young. The park depo has the capability to move trees also.

That's optimistic Jay. There still would be plenty of obsticles. I would just like to see some defined fairways. You've got 3 of the best holes around in 14, 15, and 16 that just end in an odd par 4 on 17. I'm not talking peeling out the whole fairway. Matt had some very well thought out trees picked to go. Just wanted to see it happen, that's all. I think a little bit of fairway shaping is what's holding it back. I still love it out there though.

Played there yesterday and three out of the four of us made it over the hill thats good odds can't park them all boys. I'm sure some old trees will fall this winter then other routes will open up.

agreed dom... what happened?

What happened with the trees that were to be cut down? The ones I saw marked a few weeks ago would of made some beautiful fairways. Now they are no longer marked and its the same old cluster f**k on 17. I felt like a kid on Christmas eve that was so excited only to wake up on Christmas morning to find out dad lost his job and there isn't any presents.

Threw a glow x-caliber in the lake behind 5's basket. About 10-20 feet off the shore. Reward if returned.
