And the results are......

Well, I'm glad to say that last night the darkness didn't effect my math skills. There truly were a couple of ties at the top of the leaderboard!

Congratulations to Jared Wilson and Chris Eagle for fighting a hard battle all season long! Both players improved their scores enough to earn more points than the other players in the league. However, I can't have a tie at the end of the season, so it came down to total number of rounds played. Guess what??? They TIED for that TO ... more

TODAY - Come out early today for a special guest!!

First off, sorry for the short notice! It's been a busy weekend, and we just now confirmed the details on a pretty exciting announcement for tonight.

I'm happy to let everyone know that a we can expect a guest tonight at our league. Representing Innova Team Champion, Gregg Barsby has arranged to be out at the course this afternoon to set up some merchandise for people to take a look at and chill and talk to our local players for awhile. Gregg spent the weekend in Ludington, and w ... more

Quick Significant-ish Correction...

It seems I didn't click the box for the logic for this league to calculate only the *TOP 10* Scores for a player. I was adding up some of the points when I realized this. Everything is correct now!

It didn't change the order of the Top 5; however, some of the points shifted around, so it did make a difference!

My apologies for not catching this sooner. Let me know if anyone has any questions.

Well, it's about time!!!

With just two weeks left in the league session, recent "ace machine" Chilly drains the Ace Pool on Hole 14 with his trusty Glo Z Zone!! For those of you that play Indy a lot, you can tease Chilly that he used his "Cheating Lefty" power to full advantage on this one! :) Great shot buddy!!!

There were also some big moves at the top of the leader board, and anything could happen next week. There are still about 5 players within striking distance of the top spot. I can� ... more

2 Weeks Left in the Chase!!

The top of our Leader Board is pretty tight, so I'd like to go over what happens in the case of a tie.....

Our first Tie-Breaker will be NUMBER OF ROUNDS ATTENDED. We have always based league awards on participation, and since we only score 10 rounds, I'm giving the first tiebreaker to the player that came out most often.

Next Tie-Breaker will be BEST WEIGHTED AVERAGE/LOWEST HANDICAP. This is a league where everyone is trying to improve their score, and if two players have the ... more

Congratulations to our Berth Winners....

Taking home the berths this year in our Independence Handicap League are:

Don Bush
Jared Wilson
Derek May

Congratulations to these players! They have not only been great players, but they support local disc golf leagues like ours and will represent us very well at the Michigan State Championships!

There are only 3 weeks left in our points chase, and it's very tight at the top of the leaderboards!!! Most of you know where you are and what you need to do to stay there or get wher ... more

Berth Awards NEXT WEEK!!!

It's a tight race with only ONE ROUND left before we hand out this summer's berths. I think I've spoken with most of the people in the top 10 to gauge their interest in taking the berth, so I have a pretty good idea who's in and who isn't.

JUST IN CASE!!! If you find yourself in the top 5, or even top 10, and you haven't talked with me or your situation has changed, PLEASE talk to me and let me know if you're interested.

Thanks for letting me know i ... more

Cutoff for State Championship Berths - PART II

After some discussion with other board members, we've decided it would be more fair and beneficial to the people that win berths to award them just a bit earlier.

We will now be handing out the berths after our round on AUGUST 15!!! Keep in mind this is only 3 WEEKS away now!! This will allow an extra week for the players to find a place to stay and make arrangements to register and such. It can be a bit of a financial investment, and we definitely want our representatives to be comfo ... more

4th of July - MORE IMPORTANT NEWS!!!!

Please, please, please!!! Spread this news to people that don't check DGS very often!!

Since next Monday falls on July 4th, and for the sake of keeping this league's schedule in sync with the Wednesday Hudson league, we will be CANCELING our league night on July 4th. We *WILL* be adding a week to the end of our session, so now our league will run through Monday, September 5.

I really don't want any disappointed golfers showing up to the course at 5:30 expecting a league se ... more

Monday, June 20 - IMPORTANT NEWS!!

Just a quick FYI for all league players...

I will *not* be at the course next week, so please look for Jared Wilson when you're checking in. He's a fellow A3 Member and runs the Wednesday league at Hudson. He's a good guy and I'm glad to have him filling in while I'm on vacation.

I also thought I'd list a "fun stat" from the spreadsheet. You know... Just for s's and g's and to maybe fuel a little competitive action. :)

Quick Update!

Our attendance continues to be very strong, and I want to thank you all again for that! If we have this continued support, I will push to get 3 berths to award to the Michigan State Championship Tournament in Ludington this Fall! Let's make this league as strong as the Wednesday league!!

The main thing I wanted to let everyone know is that we're now past week 6 in the league. This means everyone that has played their sixth round is going to be dropping their worst/highest score f ... more

Quick Poll!!

Hello everyone! Scores will be posted later today, but I wanted to give a chance for everyone to have their opinions heard regarding next week's round *on Memorial Day.*

I know people have travel plans and family obligations, and a lot of people, including myself, have the day off. I threw out the suggestion of moving the start time of the round forward a bit, but only want to do so if this message gets out to everyone, and everyone can attend. I want to be fair to everyone.

I'm working 8am - 4pm. If it's moved up, I can't play. If the majority of people want to play earlier I totally understand, go play, i'll see ya next week. If 2 or 3 people can't go earlier, like me, could we still go and play an get a round in?

mike jones   May 24, 2016 at 10:46am

I work until 2p.m. I can play at 3p.m.!

Floyd Hampp   May 24, 2016 at 12:37pm

Well, after giving it some thought, I think it's best that we don't really move the start time very much. I'll just plan to be out there by 4:30, and if people want to get a slightly early start, I'm okay with that, but I want to make sure all CTPs and Ace Pool are in effect and for everyone. No change of time. Still tee off by 5:30. Thanks everyone!!

Averages are taking shape!!

Another big thanks for another BIG turnout last night!! 31 players is a new record for our Monday League, and I want to thank you all for making this the most successful Monday Night league we've run! Because of the number of people adding cash into the merch CTP, I'm offering TWO chances to win a disc!! As long as the numbers stay this large, I'll continue to do this.

Also, quite a few players completed their third round last night, so averages will be set. For those of ... more

Great Turnout!!

I want to thank everyone for the great first week turnout!! I think it's close to a record for players in one week on Mondays! Things will go a bit more smoothly after we get everyone registered, and we can just worry about getting Ace Pool and CTPs out. There won't be the confusion on where cards are starting, so people won't have to run out to retrieve flags 5 minutes before the gates shut us in.

I think that will also make the decision to play all 24 holes one that we ca ... more
