Don't be alarmed!!

The scores look strange because when I setup The Rock course on this site, I only intended for it to be 12 holes, but we added those final three holes (13-15) in order to try to accomodate more people on the course the day before. Basically you can just subtract 8 from your positive score. The par also changed by 1 because one of the holes on the original layout would have been a Par 4. So par for this course was 45 where the original layout was going to be a 37 for 12 holes. Sorry for the confusion, it only affects the scores, not the point totals.

I figured the course setup out and par is now correct.

Official Announcement

It is official, I am cancelling the final week of league March 30th rather than going up against the 1st ever sanctioned tourney at Estabrook. Two of the division leaders and myself all felt that was the best course of action and judging by todays attendance (4) another week at Dineen would not have likely brought a large amount of points. While I don't like changing a schedule I have had produced for 3+ months, it seems to make sense in this circumstance without negatively impacting the in ... more

Sunday Snow Throwers Week #14 March 9th Dineen

Ok everyone, this week we will be playing Dineen as planned. I hope to get there early to help clear some more level areas with the melting snow today. I could use some help to go through one of the 9's as I am not sure I have time to do all 18 before we play. If you can come and bring a shovel, just do the best to provide a level area where we teed off this past week.

Next week I have arranged for the baskets to be left up at The Rock Sports Complex (where I am hosting a tournament on S ... more

Sunday Snow Throwers Week #13

Lucky Week #13 took us to Dineen where we dealt with snow/ice covering the teepads. I even drove by on Saturday to check things out and I realized I would not be able to clean off the tees let alone find some of them.

We normally are enjoying Dineen this time of year because it can handle the traffic better than Dretzka and Estabrook during the spring thaw, well that thaw is a little bit late apparently.

We will stick to the schedule and continue with Dineen this week and the final two wee ... more

WELCOME BACK Sunday 2/23 at Valley View

OK everyone from this league on facebook . . . I had a couple requests to move league from Valley View to Estabrook to help accommodate for the tourney taking place at Estabrook at Noon to help raise money for a local disc golfer who recently lost his fiance. Thom Morrison is the local and he would love to have as many of you all show up tomorrow at Estabrook by 12:00 PM. I had asked to have the start time of that tourney moved back to Noon before I left for vacation (and Darrin Ferguson Sr. acc ... more

$100 Ace Pool on Super Bowl Sunday

I hope to see you all out ace hunting tomorrow at Estabrook . . . you could be the hit of your Super Bowl Party if you walk in with $100+ in your pocket and make it rain!!!!


Mike Harrington   January 24, 2014 at 9:39pm

Week 9 takes us back to Valley View

Well, we head back to Valley View with another decent ace pool. Will someone be walking away with $100 or more, splitting it with the three others aces on the day, or will it carry over to Estabrook the following week?

You just never know at Valley View, so this week you need to decide are the divisional points more important and will you try to park every hole for the elusive (-18) or will you be running for aces and the cold hard cash. For me, I enjoy running for aces and I can find a way t ... more

Week 8 Results

Well, Week 8 is in the books. I wish I could have played but I think someone would have had to pull me off the course in a sled because I don't think I had enough lung capacity to make the entire round. I look forward to returning next week at Valley View and the following week at Estabrook before i go on my road-trip.

I know the Amateur field was limited today because a bunch of regulars were are the Frozen River Doubles Event in West Bend. I understand we always have decisions to make ... more

Icy Estabrook

Thank you to Patrick Brah for running league in my absence this week (We call it Siblings Weekend where we rent a cabin with my brother, his wife and their two children, and my wifes sister and husband). It is nice to know I can leave the league in good hands to spend quality time with family. Thank you also to Robert S. Bawden for always taking such good care of Estabrook Park. He volunteers his time to make that course better which in turn makes running leagues better too!

I had to make a correction. Sam Doebert had been placed alone in the Juniors division but apparently had indicated he was playing in Recreational. I have moved him and adjusted the Recreational standings which also affected some payout. Sorry for the confusion, and nice shooting Sam.

League Schedule

This week we will be at Estabrook and Patrick Brah will be running league for me this week. Next week will be at Dretzka then Valley View in the normal rotation. I also removed the week of The Big Freeze (February 16th) because I originally had league in the schedule that week, even though I never intended to play at the same time as The Big Freeze.


Mike Harrington   January 6, 2014 at 12:06am

13 people played in 11 degrees (possibly the high for the day)

We still had 13 people show today for Sunday Snow Throwers and to be honest, it wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be once we got down into the woods.

In Open, Mike Janowski extended his lead with another solid (-12) at Valley View. This is a long league but the next 4 people need to show up if Mike is going to have any divisional competition for the season. Taking second today was Mike Finley (-9) who recently won two Ace Races so his finesse game seems to be working well.

Valley View will not be blacked out!

We will be at Valley View this Sunday (January 5th) and we will play quickly on a short course so everyone can get to their chosen destination to watch the Packers Game. It is going to be cold and there is a lot of snow out there but the teepads will be in great shape for league so come on out, play a quick round, and then cheer on the Packers!


Mike Harrington   December 30, 2013 at 9:00am

Dretzka brings all the boys (and 1 woman) to the yard!

We had another outstanding attendance this week despite the freezing drizzle this morning and icy rubber tee-pads. Not only did it drop from 40 yesterday to 20 for a high today but things also went from nearly perfect to pretty rough in 24 hours. However . . . we still managed to see 25 people for league this week and right now Dretzka seems to be the course that brings in the most people.

In Open we had 9 people this week with Mike Janowski (-3) winning this week and also extending his divis ... more

looking forward to some intermediate play! great turnout for the weather today

The Lucky 13

There were 13 lucky people that had the fortunate experience of making it to Estabrook so they could still get in their weekly league round. When i was the only one there at about 8:40 I wasn't sure anyone else was coming. I left my house at right about 7:00 to head up to my office to pick up some disc requests for people (WHO DID NOT SHOW UP!!!!!! You know who you are), but I also needed to pick up my sled and shovel.

Ace Pool:
Last week the ace pool was cleared out by Dominick Salas a ... more

Dan Gerick   December 22, 2013 at 3:19pm

that's an awesome turnout for the weather! i ended up still having the itch to throw so i went and tested out my newly applied ribbons. they worked wonders. i'm ready for some fearless shots at dretzka next week!

Sunday At Estabrook - Bring a shovel

It looks like we will be getting snow overnight and into tomorrow. I highly recommend bringing a shovel so that every group will have one with them. Depending on the timing there might be a chance to shovel and salt beforehand to stay ahead of the snow but it depends on how fast it is going to come down. Just bring a shovel to make it easier for each group to have a nice tee surface. Bring it on Mother Nature. . .Sunday Snow Throwers can handle it!

Getting Caught Up Now

Thanks go to Patrick Brah for running league in my absence again, I really appreciate how willing he is to help me out. It looks like Karma played a role (or he just played really well this week) because he took down the Intermediate Division.

Thanks also go out to the 31 total people who played. Last year the highest attendance we had at Dretzka was 21 people so having 31 this week is outstanding. Estabrook's highest attendance was 32, Valley View was 26, and Dineen was 18. I am excited ... more

Dretzka Winter this week

I will not be at league this week but Patrick Brah will be there in my place to check people in and handle the scorecards. I already had a couple requests to play slightly earlier which I am fine with but all groups should be no less than 3 people . . . 4's are ok but will eventually slow up quicker 3-somes behind them. Patrick said he will try to be at the course by 8:15 or so to get people checked in and I am fine if people want to start playing as early as 8:30-8:45 if they have a 3-some ... more


Mike Harrington   December 2, 2013 at 9:19pm

Sorry for the delay!

Dretzka called my name along with about 100 others yesterday so I did not get to my office to do the scores. When I did get home to do them . . . I realized I was going to "REWORK" the payout table for the Open Division. I had been using the theory of 50% of the field getting paid out so that it did not discourage people from playing if they never were able to cash, but I realized that is really only good to do with the amateur divisions. Once you get to Advanced/Open level play you wa ... more

Dan Sinkey   December 2, 2013 at 10:12pm

hey Mike did you want ne to play intermediate or advanced in your league remember you told me something

Mike Harrington   December 3, 2013 at 9:29am

Dan, you would most likely be playing Intermediate. It changes with every league I do but based on how the scores played out this week, I think Intermediate would be an appropriate division for you. You were borderine Rec/Intermediate last year, and I would like to give the new guys who enter the Rec division a chance to be competitive.

Let's kick of the Snow Throwing Season with a bang tomorrow!

I am excited to kick off one of my favorite leagues of the year . . . Sunday Snow Throwers . . . why because that means my landscape season is virtually over for a few months and I can focus on playing a lot of disc golf and helping to move The Disc Golf Experience forward. I hope to see a lot of you there tomorrow between 8:15-8:45 AM as I hope to kick off the round at 9:00 AM . . . please do not be late it makes it so much harder when arranging groups . . . but if you are . . . please call me ... more
