No ace was hit last night . . . $94 and counting

Well I was surprised we did not see an ace hit last night, so I am really hopeful someone hits one next week . . . otherwise there will be a sizable donation to the course funds (which I guess I am just as excited about as paying someone $100). In Open we had 3 players, Brad Weber had the hot round of the night with (-8), Kevin "Pandaman" Rynders visited the glow league for the first time and shot a (-7) to take the last of the cash. Nathan Zoch deserves a mention even though he finished in 3 ... more

My apologies go to JD Cottrill whose score I forgot to write down on my spreadhseet so I forgot to enter him here. He had a (-4) on the night in the intermediate division.

Show You The Money . . . . $83 Ace Pool

Another large ace pool remains to be hit during this travelling league . . . also the main reason I am finishing this league at Valley View to hopefully clear out the ace pool. If it is not cleared out in the final week, we will take approximately half of the funds out and do some sort of divisional contest for a portion of that money and the rest will be split up and put towards the course funds of the courses we played during this league. We also will be starting this week and next at 6:30 ... more

5 people decided to play all 27 tonight

Well . . . at about 6:00 I thought it might just be Shawn Nyquist and myself, but Chad Niezgoda, Shaun Kirchner, and Josh Davies all showed up for tonight. It wasn't raining too badly but there was a 20 minute stretch that came down pretty good on our first 9. We played the Alternate 9 first and then after that we started on Hole #15 and decided if it was bad we could always stop after Hole #5 and call it 18, but we all decided to keep on playing. In Intermediate, It was back and forth all ni ... more

Just a reminder

Travelling Glow League starts at 6:30 tomorrow and we will meet by the #1 tee on the alternate 9 and also be playing holes 6-14 on the regular 18 hole course.

It's Halloween . . . Let's Trick or Treat!

Trick or Treat!!!! . . . candy will be available for all league attendees. Come dressed in a costume if you have one and win a free mulligan. The best costume (one winner per division) as decided by me . . . will win something additional.

Week #7 Recap

I expected a good number of people this week because of the Howler being this weekend and next, but we still only got the usual of 8 people. We had 3 Open, 3 Intermediate, and 2 Recreational so we went out in smaller groups to get done quicker and possibly play the Alternate 9 afterwards. In Open, Scott Slauson had an excellent round (-9) on a moderately short setup. Mike Finley came in second with his (-5) to take a little cash this week. In Intermediate, I found my putting stroke again h ... more

I moved the start time up to 6:30 PM for next week so that we might have an opportunity to play all 27 holes. Please speak up if you want to do this or if we should just play the Alternate 9 plus Holes 6-14.

OOPS . . . Week 6 Recap and Week 7 Prequel

I guess I forgot to do the recap for Week 6 (the last week at Estabrook). In Open we saw some hot shooting by Course Pro Bob Bawden with a (-6). He edged out Brad Weber (-5) by only 1 throw. That point may come into play if Nathan Zoch or Scott Slauson cane make a move in upcoming weeks. With just Dretzka and Valley View left I expect points to be at a premium in the final 4 weeks as these are the courses I expected to draw the largest attendance. In Intermediate, Keegan Wenzler had a Pro ... more

$63 ace pool for week 6

Come on down to Estabrook tonight for a chance at another decent ace pool. We are up to $63 plus whoever enters tonight.



The rain should be all done by the time we play tonight, so come enjoy the weather before it really turns south!

Week #5 Estabrook

12 people (a new record for this travelling league) attended this week which was in part due to the tournament that was being played this past weekend. The ace pool was not hit so it is up to $63 for next weeks round. In Open, Scott Slauson had a really good round of (-7). Nathan Zoch also had a solid (-5) to take the cash. In Intermediate we had 5 people play and the two people who play here regularly Keegan Wenzler (-1) and Greg Klein (E) took first and second, followed by another tie f ... more

Travelling Glow Throwers - Estabrook is only 2 days away.

We will take this travelling league to the east side at Estabrook for 2 weeks. They just had a workday down there this weekend and got all new tee-signs put in. Thanks go to Patrick Brah for his time in doing the cad work and the CNC engraving. Thansk to Bob Bawden for his diligence in getting this accomplished so soon after taking over the course pro duties from Greg Klein (who we also must thank for his years of service to that course). Thank you to all those who attended the work day or had a ... more

The Root, The Root, The Root was on fire

I used this phrase in one of my facebook posts and it seemed to fit some good scoring by a few people out there tonight. Not only were there some personal bests . . . but the lightning way up in the sky was pretty cool too. It was not threatening us at all and there was not even a drop of rain, but it made for a cool setting for glow disc golf on the night. This week, there seemed to be less cars distracting us from our round. I also did not see a deer the entire time at the course which is n ... more

Don't set down your roots at the Root River

We do have one more week here but will be moving on to Estabrook for the next two weeks. Come on out to enjoy the newest course in the area one more week. Come on out again this week, we will be using the tap lights again to help with visibility of the baskets. I will be lighting holes 1-5 with glow sticks. Each group will again be given a tap light which can be run up to the basket as the group approaches it. Please understand I cannot leave these lights out on the baskets if there are any ... more

Talk about feeling like a deer in the headlights

Root River seems to be a poor choice of a course for glow disc golf in the end, but I will not change the plans to play one more night here just because of the high level of traffic through the parkway. I will however have to honestly consider this next year as a course to skip in the travelling glow league because I heard from all groups that it was a real pain to avoid the lights from the vehicles. It was made even worse by the fact that they would switch from low beams to high beams the minut ... more

TTGT Keeps Rolling at Root River

We head to Root River for 2 weeks of TTGT and we will see how this course plays at night. It should be much easier than Brown Deer because there are not that many trees. What remains to be seen is how the our night vision will be affected by the cars that may be going through the parkway while we play. I know when we play Estabrook there are street lights and a lot of cars that affects the night vision, but there are no street lights along Root River except when we cross the street. If you see a ... more

Don't Fear the Deer . . . but be afraid of lightning

Well against my better judgement league went on as planned. The storm rolled in and we felt our first rain drops right as we were teeing off on #1. I had put the glowsticks out about 5:00 PM and it was nice out but I knew there was some potential for storms. We discussed shortening the round to 10 holes with a loop of 1-5, 14-18 so that we could at least get those holes in and decide if we wanted to drive our vehicles over and play the rest of the holes. By the time we finished 14-18 the rain ha ... more

Another crack at Brown Deer

Tonight we will all get a second chance to Beat Brown Deer . . . or at least last weeks score because I am not sure anyone can actually beat Brown Deer. I will have a new light option and I would like your feedback on it . . . is there enough light, does it light up the right part of the basket, does it shine in your eyes at all . . . etc. It is a fairly inexpensive item . . . while more expensive than glow sticks . . . they should last more than just a single use so I am hoping in the long ... more

$21 ace pool to start . . . that is not a mistake

We are kicking off this league this Thursday and next at the hardest course in Milwaukee . . . Brown Deer. We will also be beginning with $21 in the ace pool which is being carried over from last years Discin In The Dark! I could have given that money to the Discin In The Dark league I am now running at Valley View on Mondays but felt like since that money was leftover from the travelling league (Discin In The Dark) that it should be returned to the Travelling League despite the change in the na ... more

1 extra week

I have included 1 extra week in the schedule so that if we get rained/snowed out or anything for any reason we can always fall back and push the rest of the weeks back. If this happens early we will simply shift the cancelled week to the next week and all future weeks will also be shifted forwards because some course may be pulled earlier than others and we need to reserve Estabrook and VV for the end since those two courses stay in all winter.
