The basket installation at the Oregon State Hospital has been completed. Minor bonus update will be added in the next few weeks (Tee markers with distances). The tee markers will be the full height tone poles with a fresh coat of paint, number, and hole distance. Thank you all for your patience as I completed this piece of the project.


Jeff "MaxPsych" Heltsley    February 13 at 1:11pm

The Oregon State Hospital Salem campus basket installation is starting this morning (Monday 13th). Please be respectful of the grounds maintenance crew and the work they are doing for us as they complete this project over the next few days.

Hard to believe that 2 years ago today, (on 6-21-2014), Wheatland DGC was officially opened for play!!
Time has flown by. Sure makes me feel old

Matt Bressler   June 21 at 10:34pm

One of my favorite courses. Thank you for all the hard work.

Burke Walls   June 22 at 12:25pm

I remember the BBQ being very good, and playing the next course felt like Christmas morning.

Mike Wilson    May 14, 2016 at 9:52pm

We were able to get a lot done today with the incredible help of the City of Wilsonville that brought out manpower and equipment to make the job so much easier. Plus they scheduled a "work in the park" day and an unknown amount of people, (maybe 75?), showed up to to give of their time to do a HUGE AMOUNT OF CLEARING and other odd jobs around the park!!!!

Wilsonville will soon have a 9 hole beginner/family friendly course and 2 baskets to warm up on or play "horse". Because the City is fully behind the course and there was a lot of help today from the community to do what was needed.

Steve Moore   May 14, 2016 at 8:59pm

It's going to be a great place to view the Lunar Eclipse. The moon shoud be eclipsed for most of the round. Next lunar eclipse at Apogee (closest part of orbit to earth, and thus largest appearing moon) will be in 2033 (and who knows what the weather will be like THAT night?

Looking for some feed back: What are 3 questions about the game you would like to ask a Disc Golf Pro

Steve Moore   July 27, 2015 at 8:01pm

What features do they most like on a course, i.e. multiple lines and options, multilple tee pads for different division play. How best to design and modify course to allow best play for various levels of ability. What do they feel is most important to them, their score or their attitude and presentation their fellow players on and off course

Travis "Chatta" Pugh   July 27, 2015 at 8:06pm

I would ask what there favorite style of courses are, like technical wooded or mix of wooded open. what are they mentally thinking about on the course, what's the coolest/craziest thing they have seen on a course.

[member not found]   July 29, 2015 at 7:39pm

What is a key focus point that will help the sport grow positively in the next 5 years? What is their prefered Basket to putt into? What is one thing, besides their bag and discs, that if they left home without it, it would affect their round?

Mike Wilson    May 30, 2015 at 12:24am

Jason and I just got done with a Keizer Parks board meeting and as a result we at (Pac-West) want to invite any and all to Keizer Rapids on Thursday April 30th at 5:30.

This will be a walk thru of the course to discuss changes/improvements to the course. Basically a fact finding mission and we want to give everyone the chance to voice their thoughts/ideas.
So please be on time, (even a little early), and meet near the practice basket. As we will start on time!
