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.

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

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.

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?

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.

Lost my Blue Overstable Destoryer out on Brewer South on Hole #1 on the hill. It has my signature and PDGA #76314. If you find it please let me know.

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 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 at 4:48pm

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

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 at 1:48pm

new baskets?

Fred Vocino   October 17 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?

Josiah Lonsway    September 25 at 12:16pm

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

Hit a tree to the right of the tee pad on North 16 with my Orange Champion Colossus. seemed to go pretty deep right but I couldn't find it anywhere. Has my name and number on it, my best disc and would love to have it back

I don't know if you get on Facebook or not, but there is a page called Grand Rapids Disc Return where people also post about their lost stuff. Best of luck on getting it back.

Brewer Park is getting a look-over to determine how the park can evolve into one that matches the growth of the sport. The boundaries of the entire park are set; but, the total number of holes and their shapes/distances could vary from the present. A balance of interests among casual, amateur and professional level players will be guiding the park/course planners. Stakes and flags will be appearing in the next several weeks. Expect more here about the opportunities to comment about proposed changes.

i agree with a 24 hole course. after yesterdays tournament, the north course had a lot of waiting and discs flying at you. need to spread that out more.

Fred Vocino   June 13, 2016 at 5:33pm

Opportunities to be involved with the work will be coming, funding strategies also. Trial play will be organized after a layout is initiated.

Rick Marritt   June 15, 2016 at 7:33pm

Thank you Fred.

Jeremy "Grimm" Neff    June 13, 2016 at 4:44am

Lost my neon green Z Nuke on the right side of hole #3 South during the tournament today. It went in about 60-80 past the last trees on the left. Has a custom dyed scythe on the front. Also my pdga #, name, & phone number. If found I'd live to get it back. it was a gift from a friend & my favorite disc I'll throw in a small cash reward or plastic if returned.

We have league there on Tuesday, so I'll try to look for it then IF I remember.

Jeremy "Grimm" Neff   June 12, 2016 at 8:56pm

Awesome thanks. We spent the 3mins & I went back at lunch for about 30 mins but was unsuccessful.
