Still time to join
Just get out there, play and post your score. I'm not keeping track of points or handicaps right now.

League starts this week!
Let's play! I started posting news about starting this back up on May 5th. I haven't heard back from anyone yet. So I posted all the same scores for everyone just to try and get this website active again.
Kurt Bergstrom May 5 at 10:30pm
Time to get this league started. The winter was way to long!!!!!!
We started April 3rd last year. The course is ready. Tuesday nights again. If someone else wants to keep track of scores and points for me that would be great. I will make them an assistant. We can have a practice round on the 7th. And start next week on the 14th of May. I am open for ideas for this year. Let's play!
Kurt Bergstrom September 13 at 8:25pm
We had a very good turn out! 18 players total. 14 in Div 1 and 4 in Div 2. Trevor Joseph and Jon Chojnacki took first place in their divisions. Thank you Bob Messerli for being my assistant administrator this year. I would also like to thank Lenny Allen for being director in building the course and for all those who helped out. The sponsors and those who have contributed.
Kurt Bergstrom September 6 at 8:12pm
No pro or am divisions. Just Div I and Div II. Div I is the best players out there. You must decide what your going to be in.
Kurt Bergstrom September 4 at 10:57pm

I had to make some adjustments to handicaps because of the marked improvement of a few players coming off a month of team play. Joe turned in the top score last week with 7 under par very nice! I know of two players that can't make the tourney, anyone esle? Monday Sept 3rd 9 am.
Kurt Bergstrom August 19 at 11:07pm

2012 League News
I've decided to end 2012 League on August 28th. I will be having a league tournament in Sept with two divisions. Pro and Amatuers. Time, date and entry fee to be determined.
Kurt Bergstrom July 29 at 2:45pm
Singles will be back ! You can still play teams but only individual scores will count.
Kurt Bergstrom July 29 at 2:41pm
Dan and Pete played another team shot 8 under claimed 15 skins. I did not get out to play last week.I have no record of what anyone esle shoots or who plays because people are to lazy to post or still don't know how to do it. How can I post a leader board like that?
Kurt Bergstrom July 21 at 10:56am
A good week of team play! What should we do for August? It's been a great summer so far.
Get out and enjoy!
Kurt Bergstrom July 18 at 8:57am
Jon and I played against Pete and Dan. It was a close contest each winning large skin holes. We were tied standing at the 17th tee. We lost 17 with 2 bad tees each nailing trees. We had a chance to tie on the last hole so I teed off with my classic shark curve coming to rest only 3 ft from the hole. I figured we had this hole in the bag until Dan tees off and puts his just outside mine! We were 6 under to their 7 under. They won the skin battle too.
Get out and play!

Nothing exciting this week. Very few people posting scores, even tho I know they played! So I can only post what I got.
A big thanks to Myron and Bob for spending 3 hours raking, picking up and triming trees all over the course! Looks great.
Kurt Bergstrom July 7 at 3:29pm
Nick and Cody win this week for sure. Cody needs to become a member!
Kurt Bergstrom July 4 at 9:55am
Happy Independence Day!
I know of 4 teams that played yesterday. I played with Paul against Dan and Pete. We struggled early on but improved our score in the end with 4 birds on the last 4 holes. Dan and Pete ruled over us with 10 under par 46. Claiming 13 skins to our 1.
I got a text from Bob, he was on a team with Myron playing against Nick and Cody Lotz. They were ruled over also, they posted 7 under but Nick and Cody shot a 43 for 13 under! No word on skins. Happy 4th! Be safe.
Not on a team? Let me know.
Kurt Bergstrom July 3 at 6:15pm
Just form a team and start playing. I know scedules are tough right now to get people together so just have fun and we'll see how all this works out.
Kurt Bergstrom July 1 at 9:00am
In order for me to post a doubles score with Jon, I had to add him as a friend and he had to confirm my friend request. Just click on the name and go to his profile page and click "add friend"
Kurt Bergstrom June 29 at 9:20pm
I need to know every team that is formed. If you are not on a team let me know and I will help you get with some one. I will number each team and then get you on a schedule to play a different team each week. You will have to send me a message telling me how many skins you won each week. There might be a problem entering doubles team members, I just had a problem myself got to get that figured out.
Kurt Bergstrom June 29 at 5:51pm
Nick's score is really 52! We really need to work on fixing this computer / communications issue! Please attend Bob's training session!
Kurt Bergstrom June 29 at 5:21pm
Wow! Four way tie for first! Kurt leads the points leaderboard, I will try and get that reset for skins totals! OK this ends June. July is all team play doubles. So form a team and let me know who you are. Schedule a time to play against another team. If your team has no one to play against let me know. You can win one skin per hole by beating the other team, ties carries skin to next hole till a team wins them. Questions and how to score call me 715-360-7178. Or send me a message on this website. It is possible to win more skins and lose at total score.
Kurt Bergstrom June 28 at 2:16pm
July League Changes
All team play doubles. You must form your team and play against another team if at all possible. It's best disc all the way to the pin. More news to follow...I don't want to see two great players forming a team!
Kurt Bergstrom June 27 at 10:41am

Paul Semo reaches the top! Congrats. Kurt regains the top of the points list.
I want to see more team play! Those I've talked to really like it.
Kurt Bergstrom June 14, 2012 at 9:17am
Two teams were formed so far. Kurt and John played tuesday, we shot 7 birds for 7 under.
The other team was Pete and Dan, both with handicaps in regular league play shooting 6 under, impressive!
Kurt Bergstrom June 8, 2012 at 9:00am
Tuesday Nite 4 PM Doubles 06/12/2012
Normal league round for the week plus optional team play. Form two players per team best disc! Choose the best throw of your team and each throw from that spot and repeat the process. Record your scores as 'doubles' not 'singles' then you can enter your team member. If you are not able to play Tuesday then play when you can. Two teams per group.

Joe Swenson played extremely well shooting 9 under par, no bogies and 9 birds. Myron and Nick each shot eagles on 16. I tried to reset the Point Leader Board but could not. Myron now has taken over the lead there. I eliminated some of the extra handicap point rules trying to make it simplier. Also new handicaps established; Pete-1, Paul-8, John-2, Dan-2, Jon-6, Joseph-8, Chris-5
Kurt Bergstrom June 1, 2012 at 3:08am
Kyle is on top at 4 under par. Not many playing this week. Out of town or just couldn't make it. Kurt Bergstrom maintains first position in points for May. Points will be reset for June if possible. More news to follow...
Kurt Bergstrom May 25, 2012 at 12:16am
Joe comes out of nowhere to take the top position and 38 points! Christopher and Joseph bounce from top to bottom. (What's going on there?) The Allens are showing their stuff coming in 2nd and 3rd. A total of 8 players under par. Nick had a record 9 birdies. Chris had the most bogies with 12.( Working on that next handicap are we?) Good times- Just wait till June!
Kurt Bergstrom May 23, 2012 at 8:12am
Best scores posted of the year!
Competition is heating up. Seven scores in under par so far!
Kurt Bergstrom May 18, 2012 at 10:05am
Joseph and Christopher
Tied in second place at -4. Even though the leaderboard doesn't show it. Go to 'view complete leaderboards' to see details.
Kurt Bergstrom May 18, 2012 at 12:06am
Updated handicaps prove players are improving! Scores are dropping along with handicaps. Kyle, Chris and Joseph all played very well. It's turning out to be very competitive! You never know who is going to be on top week to week! Congrats Kyle and Chris. Joesph said he was on 'fire' with a 59, compared to the 70's he was shooting. Your raking in points from both ends. What will next week have in store?
Kurt Bergstrom May 16, 2012 at 10:55pm
Those who are currently in: Kyle, Nick, Chris, Jon, Bob and Kurt
Let me know if you want in.
Kurt Bergstrom May 16, 2012 at 10:38pm
Pete 3, Paul 6, John 2, Dan 4, Jon 5, Joseph 7, Chris 3
Kurt Bergstrom May 13, 2012 at 11:32pm
The current format will run till the end of May. Then we will recognize those on top or those who have improved this month. We can then change it up for June. I would like to have a special event on Sat in June. Perhaps a doubles event with a fee for prizes or a dirty money round. Do some grilling for lunch in between rounds. Any ideas?
Kurt Bergstrom May 10, 2012 at 11:31pm
Alot of movement with handicaps in effect and new points system. I will generate new handicaps for next week. Never found a score for Joe or Alex. The top 3 of last week suffered this week. Don't know the whole story there. I can just imagine all the groning going on today at the course around noon and wednesday. The pressure of being on top -wew! Sorry guys.
Kurt Bergstrom May 8, 2012 at 11:25pm
Rain doesn't stop play
Three scores posted tonight. I just practiced.
Kurt Bergstrom May 8, 2012 at 2:48pm

I printed up some score cards for you guys. Be at first hole once I get there.

Kurt Bergstrom May 4, 2012 at 12:02am
Myron Allen leading off May with a sizziling round of -5 and collecting 31 points. Good job.
Other notables, Joesph taking in 19 points with the highest league score!
Kurt Bergstrom May 1, 2012 at 8:07am
No one has to participate in points if they don't want to.
Just let me know and I won't have to work so hard!

1st Month is complete
We welcome new members Alex Christian, Kyle Froehlich and Nick Allen to the league!
Or should we? They just took over the top three positions on the leaderboard! Congrats.
Kurt Bergstrom April 26, 2012 at 10:39pm
Starting May 1st
Handicaps will be calculated and given to you based on the the average of the three lowest league scores at Almon park. Not every one has three scores right now so you will get the best average available. As soon as you do have three scores, your handicap can be recalculated.
Handicaps = (ave score - 56) x 80% rounded up at .5 or above.
If you don't want a handicap, please tell me and I will remove it.
Handicaps will be recalculated as needed.
A point system will also begin, details still being worked on...
Kurt Bergstrom April 24, 2012 at 8:46pm
First Ace of the League
Kurt Bergstrom made the first ace of the year and this league! It was on hole number 13 at Almon Park on 04/24/2012. Jon Chojnacki and John Emmer witnesses. The Ace pool can still be divided if some one else gets an ace this week in league play. Please contribute your $2 if you wanted in and did not pay yet. Next week we will be collecting 2 more dollars if you want in again.
Thanks for your contributions!
