Wednesday League at Memorial Park

It will not be taking place this Wednesday. We will pick up as normal the following Wednesday....


Mark Stephens   May 26, 2015 at 8:43pm


We are still looking for a limited number of spotters Friday - Sunday at the Toboggan. This is preferably an all day commitment however, if you cannot do a whole day we may be able to work you in. Because of the removal of the autumn olive on the course the number of spotters is much smaller than in years past. All spotters will be provided with a dri fit shirt, lunch, and some x out discs provided by Discraft. If you are interested in spotting for the event, please post here, indicating the days that you are available to spot. Thanks!

Tree Love Classic Update


I was able to secure through the Michigan Disc Golf Organization and via a generous donation by Discraft, for Arthur Latham Park to be expanded from a 9 hole course to a 27 hole facility. As such, we will be moving the proposed location of this event to Latham Park which should be completed towards the end of May!

Black Ace Disc Golf will donated $5 for every player that attends Memoriam. In addition, we will have some raffles and a 50/50 CTP.

Triple Alliance Open Course Change

Due to the HORRIBLE course conditions at Holly Woods this event is being moved to Memorial Park in Frankenmuth. Please do not park at the dog park parking lot and enter the park off Park Street off of Genesee Street. There is plenty of parking and you will not have to walk up the big hill to get to me. I will be set up near the Basket #7.

If you have already registered and this is an issue for you, please let me know. I can refund your team with no issues.

Hope to see many more of you there. The course is in great shape. The weather is supposed to be 50 and sunny....

Mark Stephens   September 11, 2013 at 9:32am

I have been told, the road will be open until 8am. So, if you would like to park in the parking lot and I bet you will, get there pior to 8am!

So let's say I had 10 tickets, two from each event. Would I be eligible to buy 10 discs, each a $2 discount? Or are they limited to 1 per person?
