Back in June I lost an Axiom Insanity in the water on hole 14. I attempted to wade out into the water to find it, but that is when I found out the soot there is like quicksand. Fast forward to this past Saturday. I went to Play It Again Sports in North Canton for the first time. Found a used Insanity that happened to look just like the one I lost, and I was pretty pumped to find it since I have never seen another person throw an Insanity. Fast forward again to today. I'm finally taking the ... more

I know you said yours was faded.. but even the smallest amount of a name on the back would red flag me to say No.

Portage has squids.

Uncle Kaka   January 9 at 1:26pm

Portage has squids. I played with a guy name Mike Keith he had hundreds of disc’s in his van. Someone needs to run this knuckleheads off.

Lost a glow valkyrie in the water maybe 70ft short of the hill on hole 16 not mor than 5/6 feet from the shore. Hit the tree and went in water. Anyone playing please keep an eye out. Thanks


Blake Favalon    November 28 at 11:45pm

LOST: Handeye Supply Tournament Queen. It's pink burst with a blue stamp. Hole 18, right side of fairway... I think. Please keep an eye out.

Ok thanks

Dave Ernst   November 23 at 12:31am

Probably 99% of the courses in ohio require no money.

Dustin Opitz   November 23 at 12:49am

Thank you sure I appreciate it

Blake Favalon    October 19 at 12:23am

Was throwing a practice drive in the parking lot toward 13's basket and it faded early. It went in just to the left of hole 3's tee. The disc is an Air Ballista Pro and is pink 158g. Please look and let me know if you find anything. 330-814-1029.

A large tree has fallen on hole 2 due to the storms last week. It also broke some higher limbs that are now hanging and blocking the gap. I emailed the park to see if they can lend a hand. We’ll see how it goes this week. Also there seems to be a lot of downed limbs throughout the course. If people could throw them off to the sides of the fairways as they are playing that would be great.


Kevin Thompson    September 19 at 10:06pm

Found an orange disc with a unique stamp while doing course cleanup on Portage Lakes today. It was buried. May have been there a while. Let me know what it is and if it matches I'll get it back to you. No name, no number on disc.

Work day this Saturday 830-12 in preparation for Chain Shot
A few things that need done are ;

Mow Low area on 15 by walking bridge/moat area and some pruning

I worked on the couse last night. Items: weed wacked and pruned path in front of #1 long tee. Short path between 2 to 3. Path between 5 to 6. Pathway leading up to 15 short tee. Brush tunnel in front of 15s short tee. Picked up trash,glass and sticks along course Short Tee to Short Baskets. Threw trash from 18s bench in the big green dumpster.

Dave Bussey   August 29 at 3:27pm

Things I noticed: we need to keep replacement trash bags in the bottom of the trash bins (18 needs one now). 9s trash been needs empted (new bag when that happens). Jeremy C. noted that it seems that if we had more of the white trash bins out there maybe more of the trash on the course would end up ... more

Matt Dungan   August 29 at 4:40pm

I’ll get some bags to put in the white bins

Matt Dungan    August 25 at 1:49am
