End of the year party

Celebrate the wrapping up of another season of disc golf by playing the Jungle. We're keeping some of the cool team prizes for next season, but the rest of the ace pool (cash, discs, t-shirts, etc.) will be divvied out this Friday, Oct. 18. The format will be determined depending on who shows up at 11am. A grill will be present, so bring something that suits your appetite. The tradition of sharing some community food is also likely.

A 1:00pm show up time would be way more doable have to work in morning and then an hour travel time

Matt Fradenburg   October 16, 2013 at 12:22pm

Matt Fradenburg   October 17, 2013 at 7:16pm

Tame the Jungle @ Sanford League done for year

Due to the increasing darkness of late September, Tame the Jungle @ Friday Doubles league has been shelved for the remainder of the year. That being said, the park is now free to enter till next April and plays all winter long. We still have a huge stash of goodies to distribute, so likely we will have a party sometime in mid-October to empty the bag. Thanks to all you who joined us this year and we look forward to a banner year in 2014. See ya then!


Craig Prime   August 10, 2013 at 9:22am

CTP Winners

Jeff Bonn took the cash CTP on hole 1 and also won a disc with drive 18' past the basket on hole 17. Curt McGill landed it on hole 7 to also take home a nice disc. The low doubles league record of 50 was tied so there's still a prize to the first pairing to score under 50. And there still have been no birdies on holes 3,5,12 or 18 to win the FINE disc donated by Fred McGill. thanks for donations this week include but are not limited to Matt, Jim, Fred, Jeff, Lance, Craig, Josh, the Park Staff and rain gods.

I'll believe it when I see it.

Matt Fradenburg   August 7, 2013 at 12:14pm

i will throw a hefty bag in, just in case.

Jeff Bonn   August 8, 2013 at 8:14pm

Don't jinx it. I still see a 10-20% chance!

Craig Prime   August 3, 2013 at 8:36am

Friday Doubles @ The Jungle

Thanks go out to Lance Anderson for the fine disc donated for the CTP on hole 1 last night. Senior Grand Master Fred "Up Hill" McGill parked hole 1 to win the disc and then did the same on hole 15 to win the cash CTP for the night. Next week the cash CTP is back to hole 1. Another donation of two Discraft minis will go to the team that has CTP on hole 9. Yes, all next Friday, rain or less rain !!!

Matt Fradenburg   August 3, 2013 at 1:41pm

The Jungle

The Jungle at Sanford Lake Park is of the rain forest type of Jungles !


Craig Prime   August 2, 2013 at 6:55am

It's Friday, is it raining yet ?

last night's weather forecast was "rain starting near the lunch hour and continuing through early evening". Jungles are normally wet, aren't they ? RAIN OR SHINE, extra CTP's as usual, prizes for anyone beating the 50 low score. Come early, play late. The ace pool is building with donations from visiting players, $15.00 plus oodles of merchandise, as of today...


Craig Prime   July 27, 2013 at 8:16am


July 26 at The Jungle was again plagued with rain that started while teeing off on hole one and continued until we all drove out of the parking lot. A big thanks to James Josh Russel for the donation of two CTP's prize packages, both won by Lance Anderson with great drives on holes 6 & 7. So far this year, evey player that shows up weekly has donated prizes for CTP's or the Ace Pool. A HUGE thanks to all. Next week the cash CTP is on hole 15. And there are still special prizes to w ... more

Rain Out

One HUGE cloud directly over Sanford Lake cooled off the hot round Clark S and Matt F were having going into hole 6, all 3's to that point. The rains nearly flooded the pavilion where 6 players took shelter from the UNBELIEVABLE rain until from no where, out of the cloud came Jakkob Lammi to shuttle all players back to the main parking lot. One Free League play Mr. Lammi. buckets of thanks from everyone

Matt Fradenburg   June 22, 2013 at 6:13pm

way to shoot to Craig and Tom. no time wasted trimming that low score. nice round.

Craig Prime   June 23, 2013 at 8:34am

thanks Matt

Craig Prime   June 21, 2013 at 6:20am


To avoid the gate fee at the Jungle, players can park 4 blocks away at the rail trail parking lot located at the light where you turn to get to the park's entrance. And if you pull in and don't have a telephone to call someone, use the SECRET SIGN & SYMBOL to get another disc golfers attention. And just what is that SECRET SIGN & SYMBOL, you ask ? It's a SIMPLE SECRET SIGN & SYMBOL, just park in the lot with your auto facing the main road and then place a disc on your ... more

Summer Solstice - Hello Summer

I'm bringing my grill and propane for anyone that wants to fire up something good, but for me it's veggie sub day from the GREAT INTERMISSION DELI in Bay City. So if you;re grillin, bring all of the fixins, plates, silverware etc. - I'm just supplying the grillin and chillin part.


Craig Prime   June 20, 2013 at 12:51pm

did anyone leave something in the parking lot after Friday's round ? identify

Craig Prime   June 17, 2013 at 8:00am

Matt, the mustard was on my cheek and I took it home with me. Something else was left in the parking lot. Here's a good clue - it fits under your arm or ass.

Matt Fradenburg   June 17, 2013 at 12:04pm

i know what it is, i was just hasslin' you a bit. prof. plum in the laboratory with the lead pipe.

Craig Prime   June 19, 2013 at 11:45am

Matt, I knew you knew or know - that should have said "fits under the forgetful arm or ass". I once left my stool and entire bag in the parking lot at the Mt Pleasant course, complete with cell phone, wallet, money and those little minis that you can put stuff in.

Craig Prime   June 14, 2013 at 11:25pm

good times

thanks to everyone that came out tonight. The grills were hot to go and there was some great weather for disc golf. Brent Faubert placed his drive on hole 1 within a few feet to win the CTP pot of $17.00 and Alex and Clark ripped it up to take 1st by shooting a 51. 17 players, Jeff, we missed you, there would have been NO CALI.

Fred McGill   June 15, 2013 at 9:56am

Geez, it sure seems like The Jungle is opening up some! Nice shootin' to Alex and Clark......just a matter of time till someone breaks 50. Tip of the hat to Craig and Matt for bringing out their grills and grub.

Matt Fradenburg   June 15, 2013 at 10:52pm

the course is in beautiful condition. each round feels like a vacation up north.

Craig Prime   June 14, 2013 at 8:21am


anyone that has been watching the leader board at the Jungle has probably noticed that Jeff Bonn and his partners have won every week but one (the week Jeff B wasn't there). The good news, no Jeff B tonight, so come out and try to beat 52, the lowest doubles of the year. $1.00 buy in for the CTP on hole #1 tonight. And with the dollar, you and your teammate also become eligible to win 2 GREAT ROCS that will be given away for the first deuce on hole 5, 12 or 18. We're thinking of adding hole 3 to that list, any thoughts ?


Craig Prime   June 14, 2013 at 7:59am

Grilling', Chillin' and Thrillin' Disc Golf at the Jungle

Informal pre-league activities starting today at about 1pm with a warm-up round, probably ending around 2:30-3:00. Bring some drink and food for the grill or depend on those who graciously share when they often bring more than they need. You can count on a grill available from 3- 5... Come enjoy some great fun before leagues tonight.

Starting Friday

Starting this Friday at 5:15 at The Jungle and word is that it is the driest of the area courses !!! . Teeing off at 5:15 allows just enough time to finish before the park locks the gates at 8:00, so it's very important that until they extend the closing time, be there and be paid before 5:15 tee off. Rounds MUST a time limit of 2 1/2 hours. ALSO STARTING May 3rd - compete to Win A Berth to the Michigan State Championships at FRIDAY SINGLES BEFORE DOUBLES @ The Jungle.

Thanks for the info Craig.........saved a drive.

Craig Prime   April 2, 2013 at 7:20am

It should dry within a couple of weeks, if the ice leaves the fairways and the ground thaws. It seems The Jungle has some lake effect !!!

Jeff Bonn   April 2, 2013 at 1:33pm

FYI: Wickes is relatively dry. I'm managing play with a cart rather nicely.
