Brendan Livingston   April 18 at 2:28am

ya'll are going to like what I have in store for you.

Brendan Livingston   April 15 at 4:05pm

Thanks for a great 1st season.

Well the season's over and I have very mixed feelings. I ran the league as best as I could and I'm hearing that people were dissatisfied with how it was run. I would like to open the floor to anyone who didn't like how it was run or thought that maybe there was some dishonesty going on. I assure you I ran it to the best of my abilities and hope to take this inaugural season as a learning experience and will take any advice from people who have ideas on how it could've went ... more

Nicholas Richardson   April 18 at 11:40pm

Great Job Brendan!!! As someone who runs a private league. Trying to please everyone is impossible, you did the best you could. I enjoyed the few rounds I did get in with the league. Love having some sanctioned rounds as well.

Last Week Big Money CTP's info

After much deliberation, here is the info on how the last week will work.

YOU CAN ONLY PLAY THE LAST WEEK IF YOU HAVE PLAYED BEFORE...

There will be no buy in for the final week ace pool.

The $1936 will be divided into $900 for A Pool, And $900 for B Pool.

Each hole will have a $100 CTP for each division.

If someone hits an Ace, they take the whole ace pot and ctp's are null and void.

The remaining $136 will given away via raffle tickets. Each player will receive a raffle ticket upon signing up.

See you on the 14th of April for the final week.

Michael Wood   April 6 at 10:55am

Are we definitely only playing the winter 18 layout then?

Brendan Livingston   April 6 at 11:22am

Thw ctps will only be on those holes, depending on condition we will play 18.

JEEPERS CREEPERS   April 14 at 1:13am

How are you determining which holes the ctps are going on?

Week 21 in review

We had second winter to contend with last Sunday. The largest field of the season turned out to try and get the big ace pool. Nobody hit it but I heard many a tale of people coming close. Most notably was Josh D. hitting the front of the basket from 23. In the last week (April 14th) we will be having a big money CTP on each basket. So 9 CTP's total. Unless we play all 24, in that case 12 CTP's (More Likely.) If an ace is hit on this day all the CTP's are null and void and the ace ... more

Week 20 in review

For the second week in a row the league course record was broken. This time Skyler beat his own best with an 11 under par. Very impressive shooting, especially since he got 7 out of the 9 on the back. In second place in the A pool Dalton was right there with him all round with a 9 under par, tying the previous course record. In third Chris Laity had a solid round with an 8 under par.
In the B pool. tying at the top with a 2 under was Trevor Edmonds and Mike Handley. Nice shooting guys, i ... more

Skyler Stoker   March 25 at 11:26am

Only thing I don’t like about rolling over ace pools is it makes the chance of someone hitting it that has barely paid in to it at all. I like seeing it get spread out over the guys that paid in to it for the full season. That’s why my vote is ace race or $$ CTPs

Jake Schneider   March 25 at 1:38pm

What Skyler said, and Mike's idea is kind of intriguing.

Tom Jakinovich   April 2 at 9:36am

Big $ ctps if nobody hits the ace on the last league day. If someone does hit the ace, wash the ctps and payout full acepool for the ace(s).

Brendan Livingston   March 17 at 7:17pm

Happy St. Patricks Day

Today was a great day for a round of golf. We had 42 players show up with 8 newcomers. In the A pool, Skyler shot the league record with a 9 under par. Way to go Skyler! In second place, newcomer to the league Ryan Herzog, finished his round with 6 birdies to slide into 2nd. That was fun to watch. Tieing for third place are the two Jeffs, Bauman and Novak. In the B pool, Tom Carpenter and Trevor Edmonds tied for first with an even par round. Jim Bridges would of placed solo third but only got in ... more

Thank you, Brendan - you've done a fine job running this, as well. It's been a lot of fun! Will we continue with the winter layout, or are the other baskets on the sledding hill going to be incorporated soon?

Mike Sims   March 14 at 5:10pm

Yeah! Great job, Brendan!

Thanks guys, I’m working on getting the baskets for this week, then take em out after.

League newsletter

We still have 4 weeks left of league but the sanctioning is over. I just submitted the league report including the windy and icey days we had so there will be some fluctuating round ratings. In A pool, Skyler shot a solid -5 in the wind, he said his putter was doing work for him. Dalton and Chef tied for second with a -1. In the B pool, Mike Sims won with a 59, Handley got 2nd with a 62 and Dustin took third with a 63. That was quite a round yesterday with 40 mph gusts. See you all next week.

Jeff Bauman and I tied for 1st in A pool. Skyler took 3rd and Chef took 4th. In the B pool Allen Fleming took home first by 2 strokes. Mike Shaw got second. There was a 4way tie for third. Skyler won the CTP which was donated by Justin (Mint Alpha) and Jeff B ( team Stony towel and sticker.). The ace pot drew the largest turnout yet with 42 participants. Tomorrow is the last week of sanctioning, there are 4 weeks left of league after that. I placed the order for club stamped discs from Di ... more

The wind crys Mary

The meteorologists were right, just like clockwork the wind picked up at right about 9:30. Many disc warriors came out today showing that they can withstand the forces of nature. The Chef shot a hot round on the front with 4 birdies, coming in at 26. Jeff Novak shot the hot round on the back at 1 over tieing for 2nd with yours truely. The CTP was donated by Ben Caverly (Chain Gang Destroyer.) It was won by Bob Turner on hole 21, nice shot Bob. In the B pool, Ben Caverly won with a 66, in se ... more

Last weeks Ice Fest

We had our best turnout last week with 33 guys, nice to see the course full. Especially on a day with ice covering 80 percent of the fairways and greens. That lead to a lot of slide aways and rollaways. Skyler won A pool with a 4 under par. Ty took home second and also won the CTP on hole 9/21. Benny G took home 3rd with an impressive 53. In the B pool new comer James Squires won with a 1 over par. In second Mike Sims shot a 56 and coming in 3rd Nathan Underwood shot a 58. Nice shooting ... more

Won't you step into the Freezer....

Week 14 (6th sanctioned) in review. A lot of new faces and some familiar ones that are just getting to the league. Welcome to all the new league members. Pleasure to have you join us for our weekly Sunday morning ritual. The Hawk had a fresh kill on display on hole 13, that was really interesting that he moved it to the top of the fence pole halfway through the round. Taking home the A pool, Jeff Novak had a steller round with a 6 down overall, 5 down on the back 9. Chef took home second place w ... more

League in review (Feb 3 sorry a week late)

Last week, in a galaxy far far away.... The weather was very cold with a steady wind and ice under some baskets. Dalton took home the A pool with a 6 under par shooting a league record 9 birdies. In the B pool, Dustin Courtney took home first with a 59, edging out Handley and Jake by one stroke. The 2 ctp prizes were donated by Jeff Novak (Discraft Titanium Crank SS) and Bob Turner (Discraft Titanium Buzzz.) That was won by Bobbo B on hole 12/24.

Battling the wind and trees.

Today at tee off at 10:30 the temp stood at 15 degrees and the west wind was gusting at 18mph. By 12:30 the gusts had reached 23mph. This became the test for the day. New comer to the league Rick Stables shot a hot round on the front with a 29, also taking home 1st in the Advanced division. The rec division was won by Bob Turner for his 4th win in a row, also shooting the hot round on the back with a 26. Way to go Bob, nice shooting!

10" in some spots.

We all felt the brisk 0 degree winds smack us in the face many times today. 20 mile an hour gusts were hard to navigate at times, but still, if you love this game, nothing can stop you. As Jake put it, there is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing. Bob Barkers propane hand warmer also is a huge help. He took home the advanced division blowing out of the gate with a 25 on the front 9. It was the Bob and Bob show today, as Bob Turner took home the Rec division with a solid 28 on th ... more

10th week in, winter is finally here.

We couldn't do CTP's today because the ground was frozen. Thanks to Justin for donating a disc, we will figure out a way to do CTP next week. A par score was good enough to take home the Advanced division, due to the steady brisk wind. Noah Carroll took home first in Rec. Overall a good turnout for a freezing morning in January. I'm still working on finalizing the member gift, just so you guys know. The Ace Pot is up to 446, with many a tale of coming close, but alas, no cigar. See you ALL next week.

Rated scores are up on the PDGA website...

Sanctioned Singles

Last Sunday we had a nice turnout for some really nice weather. I took home the Advanced division and Bob Turner took down the Rec. CTP's went to myself (Motor City Chain Gang Crank donated by Jeff Novak.) The other CTP (MVP Wave donated by me) went to Tom J. Come on out tomorrow at 10:30 for week 11. See you there. ACE POT(open to all) is at 401.

Sunny day with icy ground

Solid day of Sunday league is in the books. 12 guys came out to send off 2018 in style.

There was a tie at the top of the advanced division, with newcomer Chris Laity, and Dalton Puckhaber locking horns at 1 under par. Also, there was a tie for the 3rd spot in the ADV that was thrown off with a safari hole (1 to 8's basket.) Which was par'd by all so also needed ctp on hole 9 to solidify it, with Novak cashing in with a nice Ace bid. Earlier in the round Novak birdied hole 10 with ... more

Week 7 is in the books

Dalton came out this morning ready to play and took down the Advanced "field" by one stroke with the help of his fiance caddie. Brendan took home the CTP point on hole 12/24. The new mando on hole 4 literally took a bite out of my teebird. The Rec field was won with a hot round of 52 by Tom J. Mike F. took home the Discraft Ringer (donated by Jeff Novak) on the CTP hole 2/14. The Ace pot was rung a couple times today but no one spilled it over. It climbs to 286. For next week we ... more

Hot rounds on the day were Dalton on the front 9 with a 26(-1) and Tom J with a scorching 23! (-4) on the back 9. Great shooting guys. Next week you get one point for hot round on the front and 1 point for hot round on the back. Also next week keep track of your putts made outside the 10 meter line. Most made gets and point and a prize.

Brendan Livingston   December 18 at 4:51am

A division amongst the people

This week a new division rule was put into effect, separating the Advanced from the Intermediate/Rec players. The Advanced pool was won by Jeff Novak in part by a scorching hot back 9 carding 4 birdies and 1 unlucky bounce for bogey on hole 24. The Recreation division was won by Mike Wood with help from a nice 26(-1) on the front 9. The Adv ctp of a Discmania Ddx (donated by yours truly) was won by Dalton. The rec ctp donated by Jay Moyer and Suburban Disc golf Club of a DX Roc was won by Tom J. See you next week for some Xmas money ace runs.

Great day for disc golf

Skyler Stoker lived up to his reputation and took down the field with an impressive -4 on the new 18 hole layout. The CTP (McPro Aviar) on hole 9/21 went to Justin Nellis. The Ace pot is up to almost 200, see you next week.

Couldn't ask for better weather!!?

Jay Moyer put together a solid even par round with a hot round on the front at -1, and a +1 round on the back 12, to take home first place. Mike Sims beat out Joe B for the longest putt on hole 1/13, to take home the champion gator, donated by Justin and a discraft hat, donated by Jay B. Hot round on the back 12 was Mike Lipinski with a -1. For the record, Dalton, Joe B and yours truly all birdied hole 24. See you next week.

Week Three in review

CTP's donated by Phill and Justin. Won by Tom J on hole 2 and Mike Francisco on hole 9. Mike Lipinski sunk the longest putt on hole 3 to take home a basketcase mini and mitten bag. The ace pool is up to a cool 99 dollars thanks to Phill for donating his winnings to the pot! Thats some serious ace karma if I've ever seen't it. Watch out for Phill to bag an ace soon... See you all next week.

Good turn out for bad weather.

Joe P got his machete to bite down on chains to clear the ace pot on hole 23. The island hole claimed some more victims per usual, makes it that much sweeter when you get in. Novak was able to keep it together in the final stretch to claim first.

Brendan Livingston   November 11 at 7:46pm

Joe P wins first week on last hole.

5 players turned out in the just below freezing temps with a southern wind gusting at 8mph. In the end Joe P. came through with his forehand hyzer on hole 24, sticking it 15 feet from the pin. Everyone else on the card went OB. That broke the tie at the top and sent home the victor with the spoils. Byrd Scott hit two nice jump putts to card a respectable +4, if it hadn't been for his mistake on 22, he would of been in the running at the end. Nice to see Miyagi out there showing us some ... more
