Let's thank these volunteers for the work they did last Saturday at Brewer. Using the map shown on " info / north course / hole 1 / fifth photo", see the actual holes for 3C thru 7C and 16C where much work was done. KEEP WATCHING this page for upcoming work days: clearing/cleaning, tee pads, and basket installation. Anyone with travel baskets want to organize a trial run on some of the new holes?

I was out playing the South course today, on hole one very first shot through a red Westside discs Queen to the right of the keypad in the high grass and couldn't find it. Not sure it has my name on it but if it does good to me please get ahold of me here or I may have my phone number on the back. Thank you in advance

I'll make sure to keep an eye out for it ay league Tuesday.

Fred Vocino    May 5, 2017 at 6:27pm

I just uploaded the new/County approved design: it shows on the North Course, Hole 1 spot. It enlarges very well. Note: we could not make the southeast wooded area work this year as County had issues with water and large tree removal.

where exactly did you post the redesign?

Fred Vocino    May 1, 2017 at 7:24pm

Please HOLD May 13 Saturday for our start on the course redesign. Fairway clearing for new holes and clutter removal is the plan for that day. THE COUNTY WILL NOTIFY ME AND I WILL CONFIRM THIS DATE HERE. The arrangements for tee pads and basket placements are still pending. Volunteer cement masons and related equipment have not been identified yet.

Repost--


Brewer Park Discgolf course redesign has been approved by Kent County. This means that we can soon go to the park and start making the needed changes. People, equipment and materials need to be coordinated.
1) This will start with a course inspection by people who would bring the materials and equipment. Those folks and course designers can do this at the earliest date they find mutually convenient.
2) We can now also find the dates all volunteers can come to the park and do the ... more

The first set of responses have resulted in a May 13 (Sat.) start of the work. County approval of that date is pending. I will post here when confirmed. Thursday work days may yet occur as we find enough volunteers to make those happen. As for equipment and materials: chain saw, loppers, post-hole diggers, cement, sand, gravel and the equipment needed to lay tee pads.

John Clark   May 4, 2017 at 9:24am

I will bring a post hole digger, loppers, tamper, shovels, garden rake and other hand tools. I have a landscaping trailer and a small chipper/shredder which would be possible for me to bring it'd necessary

Fred Vocino   May 4, 2017 at 11:51am

The first work day will involve cutting and clearing. Baskets have not arrived and cement has not been scheduled. Thanks for making yourself and equipment available.

Steve Hedstrom    April 28, 2017 at 5:07pm

Hi all,
What awesome news for the new design being approved! In moving forward, I have been looking at league days and tourneys in the area. There are so many now! I am thinking that a great day/time to set our work days is Thursday's from like 4 or 5 until dark. This will not interfere with out local leagues or weekend tourneys in the area and also allow up to get consistent momentum in our clearing and install work. What do you guys think and shall we post it? Thursday 5/4, 5/11, 5 ... more

How is the Brewer redesign coming along?

Fred Vocino   March 12, 2017 at 10:36pm

County review process is a bit difficult due to the move into current untouched wooded areas. Concerns about safe pathmaking and wet areas need to be addressed.

Cash dubs @ fallasburg march 25. This a byop tournament. 40$ a team. All divisions paid cash! Check it out on the tournament page.

Thanks

Left my purple/dark blue star teebird off to the right of hole 13 just in the brush. It has black tread marks on it and I can say what is written on the back. Would love to toss it again!

Thanks Shea, we left Earl Brewer at 3, had to head to Comic Con at the Devos Place. Sorry I missed your message.

Shea Abbgy   October 25, 2016 at 6:17pm

He works at the shop. It'd be easy to get it to him if you dropped it off.

Curtis Earl   October 27, 2016 at 4:48pm

okay 👌, I'll do that next time I'm in GR, thanks

Fred Vocino    October 5, 2016 at 6:19pm

Many of you may have heard about the redesign effort planned for Brewer. The County has given preliminary approval for the use of new wooded sections of the park; final approval will be happening in the next few weeks. We can begin our preparations for the actual hands-on work needed to clear areas for new and expanded holes. This is to take an inventory of the player-community's resources: chain-saws, hand saws, atv (hauling, stump pulling, etc.). If you own or have access to implements th ... more

Nice sounds like a much needed improvement.

Tom Bos   October 17, 2016 at 1:48pm

new baskets?

Fred Vocino   October 17, 2016 at 2:47pm

New baskets are needed, of course. That means money. Support from the player community for Brewer and other nearby courses will be frequently requested. Let's have some new ideas for fund-raising: a swap meet, auction antique Brewer baskets and collector discs, other?

Lost: orange thunderbird with my name and phone number on it. Disc Blessing/ Karma/ financial reward if returned.
