No leagues this week!
NO LEAGUE ROUND THIS WEEK!!! The Old Farm Summer league encourages you to register and play in the Dirtymax Tournament to support the family of Matt Boomstra.

Alternate Course this week
Be sure to bring a basket if you can just to make sure we have the three we need.
Eric Karloski August 12 at 10:58pm
This Week: Wild Card Week - True Alternate Shot
This week for our Wild Card Week we are having a True Alternate Shot round. Each partner takes turns alternating shot. If Partner A sinks his putt, Partner B tees of on the next hole, etc... This round will play as fast as a singles round so we will decide on Sunday if we'll play 2 rounds or just one.

This week: Best Shot Doubles!
Come on out this Sunday @3pm for league best shot doubles! Leaderboards are now current!

Baskets for Sunday's Round

Eric Karloski May 22 at 3:29pm
Chris and I decided to cancel next week's league day (5/31) so people can play the Trilogy Challenge at Fallasburg Park on the same day. We've added a week to leagues and pushed the "end of the year" tournament back one week.
Eric Karloski May 16 at 6:49pm
This week SHENANIGANS!
Bring your a-game and a noise maker as we embark on maybe... just maybe... one of the most memorable disc golf rounds of your life! Please no nudity or profanity. And when you shoot your 10 foot putt and somebody whispers in your ear "I eat boogers" - don't be offended when you miss.
Eric Karloski May 4 at 6:01pm
We're Back Baby!
The leaderboard is up-to-date! Thanks for everyone who came out yesterday. It's nice to see some new faces.

Old Farm Summer League meeting
Plans for the 2015 Old Farm Disc Golf League are underway! Sunday, March 8th @3PM I would like interested/league players to meet at the Fleetwood Diner on 44th St. to talk about this year's league.
All I can confirm right now are as follows:
1. More league days
2. More sponsors = more CTP and LP prizes
3. League Discs with graphic
4. A better Alt Long course

Last league day for league points!
Today's league play will be the last day for league points. Next week we will hand out league standing prizes and have a rip-riotous time with our end-of-the-year tournament!
For our tournament we will be playing the alternative course with minor changes to holes 5, 7 and 9 per Lightning John's suggestion.
I will be there today - let's do this!!!
Eric Karloski August 16, 2014 at 9:45am
Beefy Ace Jordan Cassady!
Nice ace Jordan Cassady on hole 13 at JC! That would take a beefy throw on a beefy hole. Jordan takes the pot gentlemen! We are back down to ZERO.
Tomorrow is worst-shot doubles at Old Farm. I again will not be there, and I apologize for this. However GAME ON!
Eric Karloski August 16, 2014 at 9:44am
League is almost over... so let's do this!
After tomorrow we only have one more league day, then our end of the year tournament on August 31st. Prizes for 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and possibly 4th will be rewarded overall at the tournament. Juniors will also be rewarded for 1st and possible 2nd.
Pay-outs at this tournament will include any ace pool money still in the ace pool.
All prizes (discs) will be from Play It Again Sports of Kentwood.

The "Ace Pool" is now empty!
Congratulations Dan VanOost on taking all our (ace pool) money this week (over $110)! Way to go!
Eric Karloski July 20, 2014 at 7:12pm
1 big ace pool + doubles Birdie Bash = someones gonna get an ace!
Next week is the double Birdie Bash at Old Farm Park at 3pm. The ace pool is $93 dollars and all the "longer" holes are shortened. Let's do this!
Eric Karloski June 9, 2014 at 6:45am
Congratulations Josue Vasquez for an incredible ace!
Josue took an impressive $81 from the ace pool yesterday with an ace on our alt long course hole 3 at Old Farm Park. He also took CTP on that hole and one other yesterday, earning him a Vibram Birdie Bash Players Pack and a Westside Hatchet. I now call him the "Magic Missile".
Eric Karloski June 7, 2014 at 8:45pm
League leaderboard is updated.
The leaderboard is updated but might seem wonky because in order to enter the Birdie Bash points I had to enter a score. So the group that got 8 total points is recorded as shooting a -46. The points are more important then the scores.
SEE YOU ALL TOMORROW @3pm!!!

3. Points are awarded as follows:

b. 2 points for getting a birdie
c. 5 points for an Ace
Ours is a double version of the Birdie Bash. Both partners are trying to get points. The best of both throws for both partners are scored on the card. So if one partner hits metal on the first throw, and the other partner scores a birdie, a total of 3 points is awarded to the group.

The Leaderboard should be up-to-date!
Minus the names which still have no last name next to them, the leaderboard should be up-to-date. Please comment if you think your scores do not represent reality.
Thank to everyone who played "worst-shot" doubles! What did everybody think of it? Should we play it again?
