I spent the afternoon out one the course spraying PO and pouring white concrete on the front of the tee pads for foot fault lines and follow through areas on concrete. We just can't catch a break with the weather, too wet, now too hot! The park rangers are holding us off from mowing the rough due to fire danger... Hopefully we can get some mowing done on Hole 2, 4, and 5 early morning and late evenings...
PS... The mosquitoes that were so thick a couple weeks ago at the opening are gone... At least during the day there was none. The heat must be killing them or that main hatch died off.

The course will be open for this weekend. If sooner we will post.

Why did cap city move dubs? Is the course not going to be open this Sunday? If not we need to know soon as 3 other leagues are scheduled there this Sunday.

We are currently pulling baskets at this time in preparation for Civil War reenactment which begin this weekend.
We will post announcement as soon as course is reopened!

Baskets are going to be pulled at Wheatland DGC June 26th Thursday afternoon. They will be replaced on or before July 12th for an annual Civil War Reenactment. Our goal in this down time will be getting a tighter cut on the grass since this first cut was from 4ft tall grass. Cleaning up rough on Holes 2, 4, 5, and 6. We hope to have OB lines marked out on the RIGHT side of holes 4 & 5 and LEFT side of hole 7's fairway. We are limited on the clearing of those rough areas, so consider lost disc ... more
Baskets are going to be pulled at Wheatland DGC June 26th Thursday afternoon. They will be replaced on or before July 12th for an annual Civil War Reenactment.
Our goal in this down time will be getting a tighter cut on the grass since this first cut was from 4ft tall grass. Cleaning up rough on Holes 2, 4, 5, and 6. We hope to have OB lines marked out on the RIGHT side of holes 4 & 5 and LEFT side of hole 7's fairway. We are limited on the clearing of those rough areas, so consider lost discs in those areas gone as if it were water. Also, we will be setting posts for tee signs and a kiosk. Actual signs may not be installed until late July?.... Spot spraying of poison oak was started on Monday with a hot mix and will continue throughout the summer (it is much easier to eradicate PO after it has been mowed with the brush hog, it also reduces the amount of herbicide used in natural areas.).
Thank you for your support on this project, we hope to have this new course in tip top shape this summer...

The feedback from the State Park staff has been positive... With the exception of some discs being thown into the camp host site (100+ft off the fairway)... Lets use a lil common sense and be good roll models of our sport.
I went out yesterday with the goat and and a backpack sprayer. Hole 4 and 5 were spot sprayed with a hot batch of herbicide for poison oak. The Goat cleared out a large area on hole 4s left side around the big fir tree and such. We are lucky yo have the full backing from Oregon State Parks... It will help tune this course up in a matter of months!

Hey all! I want to play the course on Monday, June 30th. Anyone want to carpool and play a round or two? I'm open most of the day.
Mike Wilson June 22 at 2:01am
Our next goals include spraying of poison oak, back filling around tee pads, getting tee signs in, & adding garbage cans (possibly a bench or two too).
Mike Wilson June 22 at 1:45am
All of us want to "thank" all of you that came out to play this new course on opening day! Hope everyone had a great time and liked what they saw. We will continue to improve the course & maintain it too!

Congratulations Pac-West on your project of this fine course. My son and I got to throw early lead off round with another father/ son that was visiting from Hawaii and happened to hear about opening day event. I missed first course ace on #6 as it caught chain, we all were ready to celebrate big, and then agony of defeat as it dropped out, would of been great but oh well. We all found it to be a great day of disc on what I feel will become a premiere destination course as final signage and fi ... more
Congratulations Pac-West on your project of this fine course. My son and I got to throw early lead off round with another father/ son that was visiting from Hawaii and happened to hear about opening day event. I missed first course ace on #6 as it caught chain, we all were ready to celebrate big, and then agony of defeat as it dropped out, would of been great but oh well. We all found it to be a great day of disc on what I feel will become a premiere destination course as final signage and finishing around tee pads get done. All in all for a new course and anyone that knows me and how I feel about course layout, playability, signage and all, as I did at the end of my round it's a big 2 thumbs up in my book. Going to be a great local course so lets all respect this fine place. Thanks to all involved and it was my pleasure and honor to get to work with a good group of guys. Steve

CONGRATS ON YOUR GRAND OPENING WHEATLAND! CANT WAIT TO BEAT IN SOME FAIRWAYS!
Mike Wilson June 20 at 12:25am
About 34 hours until the grand opening! Can't believe it's here, just doesn't seem real.
Mike Wilson June 18 at 11:14pm
We will be working out at the course Thursday. Please if you have time come help us out! Starting about 11AM.
Steve Moore June 18 at 10:08pm
Good call on the bug spray Mike, noticed that other day when I was out working. Anyway is anybody planning on being on course working tomorrow, Thursday and if so idea of time frame. Thanks all
Mike Wilson June 18 at 6:32pm
For those of you coming out this weekend to play in the Grand Opening or The Trilogy Challenge.
I suggest you bring bug spray!! Today they have been out in force on holes 6, 7, & 16!!
Steve Moore June 17 at 4:57pm
Got 3.5 more hours on course for you this morning doing what I do. I think it should be fairly easy to see what I got done, hope you like my work. Anyway thanks to whoever as gotten started on some fairway mowing, hope they can all be done in time. It's coming together but still plenty to do. Busy with Woodmansee and Park Supervisor tomorrow. Should be able to make some time Thursday and Friday morning if wanted. Take care all.
Mike Wilson June 16 at 11:44pm
If you are free Tuesday from 3PM - ?
I can use the help and put you to work.
Steve Moore June 16 at 12:25pm
Wondering about what else was able to be done on course yesterday after I left. What else is left to be done and what is game plan for this week to get it ready. Things that come to mind are sleeves, basket assembly/install, signage, indicator markers for walkouts, more weed whacking, and last but most important mowing plan for fairways. I can make some time available if plan in place. Thank you.

**Wheatland Disc Golf course**
So after 6 hours of running my weed wacker last 2 days have been able to assist making dent in work still needed to finish up course for this weekend. The main (one of them) and most important thing left at moment is mowing 3-5 foot tall field fairways. If anyone has access to or knows anyone that could possibly assist us on this task please contact myself here, Jason Bruster, or Mike Wilson. I really hope someone can give us a big assist with this. Tractor mower is what is needed, lots of ground to cover,
Thank you in advance,
