Old Airport Disc Golf Course - AuGres, Michigan´╗┐ has posted "NO DISC GOLF" throughout rifle deer season. Be careful players, stay clear. This land has a history of seeing hunters; if not within, often very near some of the holes. The best idea is to not play when there is a chance that a scope may be aiming somewhere near you or your disc.

message from Ron (course designer, guru, protector and old hippie dude that likes to howl).



"whaoooooooooooooooo, ooooooooooowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwahhhhhhhhh ! I Love You All, keep coming to Old Airport Disc Golf Course - AuGres, Michigan. I'm the tall guy usually on a tractor, running a weed whacker, chain saw or just walking around howling a bit. I'm sure we'll have a chat and I am looking forward to it. I hope you'll love the course".

Grand Opening planned Monday, September 23rd at 5:00 prior to the City of AuGres's monthly council meeting. It would be great to have as many disc golfer show up as possible to demo some of your championship level skills. The city manager told me that they are planning on having some hot dogs on hand and may take a walking tour around some of the course. Plan on a random draw doubles round, probably starting by 6:00. call me with any questions, donations or if anyone wants to carpool.

In planning a vacation to Tawas Point State Park last week, I called East Tawas Chamber of Commerce to ask if there was a local disc golf course. The very nice woman on the phone responded by asking "what is disc golf?" Fortunately, a friend recommended this website and I found this fantastic course: Old Airport DGC in Au Gras. Someone has put in ALLOT of TLC to grooming, marking and the overall layout of this course. It has a great mix of short dog legs, rolling meadows (not unlike Scottish lin ... more

Ron Peludat designer and keeper for 13 years. Thanks for the great comments...

Craig Prime    July 16 at 8:20am

UPDATE - Ron has temporary markers out directing play. You'll need to look for the small contractor stakes, most will have the little plastic flags alongside as well to help with viability. It is looking AWESOME ! Holes 1 -9 are super easy to follow and 10, 11, 12 & 13 fairly easy to follow.The last 5 1/2 holes that still need some major clearing, 14 through 19 are for the adventurous. Once leaving hole 19, players come back out of the woods to the old airstrip and old hole 18, now finishing ... more

UPDATE - Monday July 15 and it's supposed to hit 94 degrees, what better a day to finish up some loose ends at Old Airport DGC ? Ron will be working around the course sometime after 12:00 today, anyone want to help ? call if you want to drive me to AuGres and bust ass in the heat

UPDATE - The NEW Old Airport DGC now has 20 baskets planted. 10 holes from the original layout were altered and make up the front 9, with 10 new holes going into an entirely different area of woods. Hole 20 was the original hole 18 but is now longer and has a slightly different basket location. Playing and navigating this course will be tough for awhile yet, please be patient if you visit and play. The rest of the summer will be used to groom and place signs and with everyone's help and patience ... more

Anyone want a job on Saturday ? There is work available at the NEW Old City DGC. Course Guru Ron will be working Saturday so if anyone wanted to do some course grooming, give Ron a call.

Craig Prime    July 10 at 6:20am

Tuesday, July 10th would be a great day for anyone to drive to AuGres and help haul some brush off the 4 final fairways in need. There will be a crew there at 9:00 this morning working throughout the majority of the day.

where can we get an original WINDSOCK for the Old Airport DGC ?

Old Airport DGC, the original 18 hole pole course is dry and all cut and ready for play. Work continues on the 10 new holes going through the woods with 5 holes nearly cleared and 5 remaining to have the brush hauled off and logs stacked. Course designer Ron Peludat told me that he has this Friday and Saturday off work so there's a good chance anyone coming to the course may see Ron working around and looking for some volunteer help. Ron's phone number is listed in previous posts if you want to ... more

Tuesday, July 2nd. I'm planning on going to AuGres for a work day, anyone want to ride share ? The course needs hands to carry the brush away, move logs into piles and make the final push to clean things up before the baskets go in. And for all of those players out there that are anxious to see the Old Airport DGC come together, be patient. If you've never cut a disc golf course through the woods with nothing more than chain saws and hand tools, it's not an easy or quick project. Courses that ar ... more

What's a chainsaw? :) Good luck!!

Craig Prime   June 29 at 9:17am

mine is a rummage sale find, $20.00 and two course later, 1 bar, 3 chains, several sharpenings and a few pieces that have fallen off now make it something you would call a hazardous tool for making disc golf courses.

Kenton Lunger    June 27 at 11:52pm

I am going to be in AuGres for the week of the 4th of July, do you think the course will be ready to play by then?

Permalink
Craig Prime   June 28 at 7:08am

the new course WILL NOT be ready by then. There are still 5 holes to hual brush and logs from and then all baskets will go into the earth. The original course is playable, although as of Wednesday it was desperately in need of grass cutting. If you want a contact number, call Ron P, I think his numb ... more

Craig Prime    June 4 at 8:00am

As of this past Saturday, there are 7 new holes cut through the woods. The fairways need volunteers to haul off some brush and stack some logs. Anyone, anytime- Ron said he'll do his best to meet anyone on any day, call ahead 989-876-4155. As soon as the ground is dry enough to except and cure cement, there will be 18 holes to play. After that, Ron has 2 additional holes planned through the woods making a great 20 hole course in AuGres, Michigan. Way to go Ron P (P is for persistence)

Craig Prime    May 30 at 3:21pm

The rumor has it that tomorrow, Friday the 30th is a work day at the course. There are three fairways that need small logs and brush hauled off to the side, 5 more that need the trees taken out. Ron Peludat told me that Kevin Sauve has plans to be there working, anyone interested in car pooling give Ron or Kevin a call. expect VERY WET conditions

Craig Prime    May 27 at 9:59am

The status of the course is WET !!! July 4th is the target date to have the baskets in and hopefully have a dry course to play. NO MORE RAIN !!! But the good news is that 4 of the 9 new holes are cut and ready for more hands to help with brush and log removal. Anybody that might want to help is welcome, bring friends, boots, gloves, trimmers, rakes and BUG SPRAY. Thus far there have been 4 different volunteers show up and course designer Ron Peludat has plans to have ALL 9 fairways cut by t ... more

Is it still just poles or the actual baskets in? I'll be out there on Friday if anyone wants to join.

Josh - it is still the POLE COURSE but changes are just around the corner. did you read this post ?

Craig Prime   May 21 at 6:16am
