Looks like a rain event today. If anyone wants to show up and play, that's fine. Unless it clears up I probably will not be there.
Keep track for cumulative monthly payouts.

Happy Spring

It's that time of year, the fishermen and women are out and like to use the shoreline near some of our water holes. Please be courteous as we do share the park with them. Although it can be frustrating at times if you give them a heads up most of them are cool and will watch and have a chat with you as you play through.

Chain Shot B Tier tournament 2017 registration is now open. Makes a great Christmas present!


Steve Godar   October 26, 2016 at 12:27pm


We have had some recent vandalism at PLDGC. Someone destroyed the lock and bent the securing bracket on #1 basket. I ordered a new lock and a week later they pounded on that one also. (it still works)
Within the past couple days, someone knocked over signpost on #6.
They also upended and broke the short teepad sign on #2 earlier this season.
Please keep your eyes open when you play. Let me know if you see anything suspicious.

Matt Dungan   October 26, 2016 at 4:08pm

yes, please keep your eyes out when you play here. Gotta love vandals, takes a real winner to break a tee sign or beat on a padlock with a rock. Tee sign is fixed, just have to cement it back in

Matt Smith   October 26, 2016 at 4:09pm

We will definitely keep our eyes open. We saw some teenagers standing in and rocking the 9th basket. We had a word with them and notified the park rangers. This kind of senseless vandalism really bothers me.

Steve Godar   October 14, 2016 at 1:13am

Toss a Disc

Just an FYI. It's gonna be a beautiful 3 day stretch, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Portage Lakes Disc Golf Course is in absolute pristine condition. Nice temps, leaves are turning, no bugs. You would really do yourself a favor by doing 18 here this weekend. Just sayin'............


Steve Godar   September 10, 2016 at 6:26pm

Trees down on #3

Need some help guys.
We had a couple trees come down on #3. It's unplayable.
I need a few chain saws (with their operators) to help clear.
If you could do a little to help out would be great.
Thanks so much.

Matt Dungan   September 10, 2016 at 6:34pm

I'll be there in the morning 9ish to hack some stuff up

Matt Dungan   September 11, 2016 at 11:55am

it is done

Brian Shega   September 11, 2016 at 9:08pm

Thanks Matt. You are the " immune system" of Portage Lakes.

Steve Godar   September 6, 2016 at 10:10am

Careful on #6

Big yellow jackets nest on the final stretch of hole 6 towards the basket. Where all the brush had been razed recently. It's past the original basket position on the way to position b. There's a lot of dirt and brushy waste with the lake to your right side and probably 50 feet down from the little trail that takes you across the road to hole #7.
I am gonna try and move the basket back to short position.

Matt Dungan   September 8, 2016 at 5:10pm

Thanks for handling that, the fairway to the long pin is beating nicely anyways plus I don't feel like getting stung

Steve Godar   September 3, 2016 at 4:42pm


This Thursday September 8th will be the last day of scrambles for 2016.
Thanks to all that came out this year.
We will see everyone in 2017.

Nice work Steve!

Matt Dungan   July 20, 2015 at 5:54pm

Anyone who's played hole 9 at portage can appreciate this. The second shot is what gets me, there's usually nothing from there (the put was pretty good too!) I was in the group ahead putting out and we were kinda pissed because we thought they were throwing on us. All is forgiven after seeing this

Jeff Gayhart   July 20, 2015 at 7:05pm

That is just amazing especially in the alternate pin. Your lucky to see a 4 here and there in the other postion. That second shot and putt were unreal. Deff cant be pissed after seeing that plus that position is very hard to see anything.
