Just making you guys aware that hole 8 is without a basket. Someone decided to take it. Cement, pole, basket...it's all gone. Not sure who needs to know about it to fix it. Just putting it out there.

I'll put the first $20 toward the fund to offer an award to anyone who can give evidence that leads to the identification of the theif. I doubt the fool who stole the thing can keep it a secret.

I would pledge the same. Such bs!!! This is why Johnson park is the way it is! Dirty thieves that can't have fun and just play. What the hell are they going to do with 1 basket?!? Go buy one or make one! Fricken aholes. That makes me soo mad! :/

Wondering if anyone out there would like to start a weekly 6 am game. Yes, I said 6 am. Any day of the week is fine for me, but I am leaning towards Mondays or Wednesdays. I am an early bird and am inviting any other early birds out there to join me at least once a week at riverside to enjoy the summer mornings. Thanks!

Well there certainly wouldn't be any picnickers on the course.

Under Course Layout there is an option for "River Monster". Anyone know what this means? Details?

Current course information (as of 4/21/13!) - Holes 1 through 5, and 17 through 18 still open-ish. Hole one tee pad is dry-ish, basket is fully submerged (use a putter that sinks for any chance of par). Hole 2 basket in 2 feet of water, tee pad covered with 3 to 4 feet of water. Hole 3 basket in 1 foot of water, tee pad in 2 feet of water. Hole 4 basket on dry-ish ground, tee pad in 2 feet of water. Hole 5 basket is submerged to the bottom of top basket ring (use a sinkable putter on this one!), ... more

If you are a local amateur player and would like an invite to a cash tournament that myself and Connor Gortsema are putting together, drop me a PM and let me know so we can really get this ball moving. Only 2 divisions: Open and Amateur. Gonna be the start of a cash tour here in the local area and trust me you don't wanna miss out! Limited to 20 entrants per division as to keep it someone exclusive and private!!

Lost a Boss Eco Plastic with "TJK" on it on hole #14. Let me know. I think it was green, I'm color blind lol!

Sweet! Changes will be nice. However, hole #15 just plain sucks because of the goose crap. I don't even play that hole - I use "hole #19" instead (fire plug to #17 basket). The fairway of #14 is pretty bad lately too. Like I mentioned earlier, adding holes in the wooded areas on the northern area of the park (north of holes #6 & #7) would be nice. And how about a practice basket somewhere in the open field between the parking lot & hole #1. If you're looking for more ideas, let me know. :)

Yes sir, changes are being made upon approval.

The peninsula is staying, as the water is part of the major challenges of riverside.

Some pads are to be elevated, some pads are being repositioned, pins being moved due to safety reasons, and making the course more technical.

Stay posted for details.

p.s. also a pro 9 to be built on the south end ;)

Has anyone heard if the city is planning on making changes to the course? Tonight when playing there I saw markings on the course (and no they were not for cross country). Hopefully they are & maybe they will use some of the wooded areas over by the ball diamonds & just get rid of the hole on "goose poop peninsula" all together.

I am thinking about starting classes/lessons for all AM2 and below players that want to learn more about disc golf. Just wondering how many people would be interested or know someone that would be interested in learning more? The classes/lessons would be FREE!!! Send me a message on here or call me at 616-681-1000
