Boy Scouts are a HUGE HELP in finishing Blizzard Hills DGC - Big News


Blizzard Hills, Pinconning Michigan is nearly finished with all 18 holes. October 16, 17 & 18th., Troupe #150 from Westminster Presbyterian of Bay City camped, ate, WORKED HARD and learned the game of disc golf at Blizzard Hills Disc Golf Course. With the help of the 7 scouts, 3 leaders and 10 members from the Pinconning Disc Golf Club and Monday Night League, we were able to get ALL fairways cut through the thick woods. The posts have been set on all but holes 11 and 12, and these final 2 will go in this week. All that leaves for the cutting crew is some final trimming around a few tee areas, final cutting of a few annoying trees and some minor hauling of brush and logs to clear the walking as you discover the depth of this course.
The Pinconning Disc Golf Club made Troupe #150 the Official Scouting Crew for Blizzard Hills DGC and with doing so invited the group back next year for a weekend that has more disc golf than work. The scouts added a tremendous long time effect to the course by taking a 4' pine tree from the fairway of hole 10 and transplanting it within a few feet of the course map and hole 1 bag and meeting bench. If you look hard at the photo below, you'll see the pine between the group. To all of the Scouts and their leaders, we can never thank you enough for the weekend of hard work. The first 12 holes completed are ready and groomed for GREAT play and the final 6 will be open for play within 2 weeks, the bar is open and ready for your visit; so get to Pinconning and visit Ward at Blizzard Hills.
We still have a very few fund raiser discs available, don't hesitate to write with requests.
And make sure to check the new sign when coming to the course on Pinconning Road.

We need a crew for a couple more days have hard work and then it will be one of Michigan's best disc golf courses, ready to teach anyone a lesson in technical play and make you a better disc golfer.
