GLOW RECAP 1.20.2021

Sorry for the delay in score posting. This past Wednesday was a cold winter night with below freezing temps, light winds & some snow on the ground. It was a good night for a Red-Red shootout which lead to a three-way tie for first place. Harrell/Jopps, Krumm/Wykes, Herron/Thelen all with -16 scores decided to split the cash & flip for the bonus $10. Sprow/Ritchey snagged last cash with a -14 score.

CTPs on the night:
Hole 3: Ballios (cash)

happen to know how firm that rubber blend is for the bangers?

Scott Sprow   December 30 at 9:36pm

@Peter, I do not know as they have not been run just yet. If I were to guess, it would likely be in line with the current run of rubber blend stuff (I do not have any insider information to confirm or deny this)

Before Nate gets to the formal post, I want to take a moment to express my sincere thanks.

GLOW RECAP 12.16.2020

Snow covered ground & slick tee pads were the perfect combo for us to play a Red + Red shootout at Bandemer. Very surprising that nobody hit an ace, but shooting the hot score of -16 & taking first cash was Sprow/Chapman. Great shooting guys! There was a 4-way tie for second, third & fourth cash between Perras/Thelen, Plantz/Trombley, Briggs/Ballios & Frame/Gacioch. A throw off resulted in the cash being distributed in that order.

Everyone did really well with respecting space and wearing masks tonight.. Thank you for thinking of everyone in this challenging period of time we are experiencing. I heard several of you ask others how you could respect boundaries, which was awesome!

As for the round itself, we experienced cool temperatures and some wind from time to time for the round this week. Taking top honors with a -13 was "Mr. Cali" Richard Thelen. Close on his heels and coming up just short with a -12 was ... more

Trial Run:

We are going to hold league this evening. As it should be to this point, masks/face covering needed for registration and in ANY instance where maintaining appropriate social distance from others is difficult.

We are ALL living in a time where things are different and challenging (regardless of our viewpoints on our current situation). Let do whatever we can to help insure a safe environment for everyone.

Future League Rounds

New stuff coming down from government and health departments are bringing A LOT of changes to our everyday lives. Still looking through all the details and how this impacts us (other parks have already put a stop to events planned for the next few weeks). More details and formal announcement will be coming soon about how we will approach this challenging time.

BRATS in the Dark

So, league last night was a bit confusing. My apologies for the mix-up on the scorecards regarding hole numbering. Clearly it could have gone a little better and that is 100% on me. On a private course, it is tough to navigate in the dark. I hope you did not walk away disappointed.

Thank you again to Terry and Sheila for hosting us last evening. Always a treat to play BRATS. Hopefully you enjoyed it in a glow environment. You walked and played probably 20% of the property last night. Seeing it all during the day makes it more impressive.

Return to Bandemer for next week's round.

We are at BRATS tonight. Terry and Sheila are opening the course to us this evening and we want to honor their requests.

1. Face Coverings should be in place during check-in.
2. There are areas that are roped/taped off around the house...you CAN NOT go into those areas.

It is Hoodie Season!

I had a player ask me about hoodies last week. So lets talk hoodies.

Who is interested in getting a WC Glow Hoodie? I have a few made up already. I will bring some hoodies as examples tomorrow night for league. If you are interested, bring some cash and we will get started on yours ASAP.

Depending on the hoodie material and size needed, cost will be between $25 and $35.

I even have some Glow Vinyl that looks really good on darker color items.

League Night: Wed Oct 14th

Great News.....We have received permission to come back to BRATS to play our league round this next week, Oct 14th.

We will be a little limited in areas, needing to stay on the western side of the property, but will come up with a 9 hole loop that works. We will try to make it a little shorter as rounds there tend to go a little later into the night.

Looking forward to seeing you all at BRATS next Wednesday. Enjoy your weekend.

Alright folks, here we go.

We are resuming league tomorrow night at Bandemer. It looks like it might be wet, so come prepared for the potential for some rain.

The cities of Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti still have a 25 person gathering limit in effect. Please remember to maintain social distance guidelines and other safety precautions.

OK, new fall/winter league created....check

The city of Ann Arbor and Ypsi have a 25 person gathering limit imposed which started just as we finished the summer season. I am a little concerned that we might draw attention with our numbers and certainly do not want to ruin anything or paint disc golfers in a bad light in the public eye.

With that being said, you are welcome to shoot me some ideas in a PM regarding wh ... more
