Yes this is allowed but caddies are an extenison of the player and are to required to follow PDGA rules while with the card

Brendan Spafford   April 1, 2023 at 3:39am

Looks like I just got in late this evening. Ma3 isn’t showing tee times. Will this update?

Angelica Haggert   April 1, 2023 at 11:09am

The site says your tee time is 8:58 Brendan!

Patrick Treude    April 5, 2023 at 11:55pm

Can you include the payouts on the PDGA page please.


Brendan Spafford    March 31, 2023 at 11:06pm

Hi, this could be last minute… looks like three people have dropped from ma1. Looks like we have 4 ma3 on the wait list. Could we add another ma3 card?

Spencer Young   March 31, 2023 at 11:53pm

This won’t work unless another MA1 player withdrawls

Kalan Schat    March 31, 2023 at 4:32pm

Will there be a shuffle after the first round?

Angelica Haggert   March 31, 2023 at 6:01pm

It says in the email there won't be a shuffle!

Jake Petersen    March 31, 2023 at 2:47pm

Would it be possible to move my tee time back a bit? Still within the timeslots for MA3 of course. If it's too much hassle I understand.

Spencer Young   March 31, 2023 at 10:18pm

I’m sorry but it’s not fair to others to move tee times

Tamara Wudrick    March 31, 2023 at 11:29am

What are the current course conditions? Debating footwear. UDisc says “Good Conditions” as of yesterday.

Spencer Young   March 31, 2023 at 1:13pm

Currently the course is muddy, The club is working on getting stuff to put around tee pads to try to help with the mud

Tamara Wudrick   March 31, 2023 at 7:35pm

This work by the club is much appreciated! Is there ponding in areas as well?

Spencer Young   March 31, 2023 at 10:17pm

There is, we are working on getting skids out make bridges across the ponds

Spencer Young    March 31, 2023 at 2:35am

Sunday tee times are now live as well!


Sean Galbraith    March 30, 2023 at 11:49pm

Do you know if the dog park parking lot will be open?

Spencer Young   March 31, 2023 at 1:53am

I don’t think it will be open, there will be a list of other options sent out in the email.

Sean Galbraith    March 30, 2023 at 11:47pm

Which tees are MA40 using?

Spencer Littlejohn   March 31, 2023 at 12:11am

Red/white I believe

Dario Zgrablic   March 31, 2023 at 2:27pm

Red then white

Andrew Kinoshita    March 29, 2023 at 10:31pm

Ok sounds good. Thanks for clarifying!

Kevin Donde   March 30, 2023 at 12:41am

To confirm, will they be available right at 8:00pm? Just wanting to understand whether to book a hotel and drive up the night before or if I will be able to drive down morning of. Obviously, if I tee off early on Saturday morning, then I would like to know as soon as possible. If the times are posted later that night, it just gets more and more rushed and more difficult. Thank you. ;)

Spencer Young   March 30, 2023 at 3:00am

I will try to get them up earlier then 8 and add anyone else who registers after. The lastest they will be posted is by 10pm

Sean Galbraith    March 28, 2023 at 9:56pm

For those who haven't played the course before, here is a fly through from the red tees



Aaron Ward    March 27, 2023 at 3:32pm

Any chance there will be some waitlist movement on Sat (I’m #5 MA3) or are we likely to be out of luck? Thanks!


Isaiah Masek-Kelly    March 21, 2023 at 5:48pm

I'm playing on Sunday, but just wondering if there would be a time in the evening to get a quick practice round in on Sat? Or will people be on the course close to sundown.

Spencer Young   March 22, 2023 at 4:09am

The last tee time will be around 4:30 so they will be on the course to close to sundown. If you want to follow the last card through the course you could but you will have to stay behind them and not play through.

Isaiah Masek-Kelly   March 22, 2023 at 8:27pm

Thanks, yeah obviously I dont want to disrupt anyone during their tournament round. Guess Ill try to sneak out of work early on Friday instead

Jason Day    March 21, 2023 at 12:57pm

I know times will be posted 72 hours before the event but I was wondering if you might be able to provide some insight to the general order of things. I’m playing am 1 but coming from a couple hours away and I’m trying to decide if it’ll be necessary to find a place to crash the Friday before or if it’ll be reasonable to drive up that morning. Thanks!

is there an approximate time you anticipate the first Tee off to be? "morning" is pretty vague...

Spencer Young   March 22, 2023 at 4:10am

The first tee times in the morning will be around 7:30am

Jason Day   March 22, 2023 at 1:24pm

Thanks for the prompt reply Spencer

Sherry Coens    March 18, 2023 at 5:58pm

What tees will FA 3 be using?

Spencer Young   March 18, 2023 at 7:38pm

FA3 will play 2 rounds of Reds

Jon Jealouse    March 15, 2023 at 3:56pm

Does anyone know if there is a practice basket to warmup on at the course?

Wesley Watt   March 15, 2023 at 4:09pm

Yes, there are 2 practise baskets located near the tee pad for hole 1

Tobin Izatt   March 16, 2023 at 2:01am

Also a driving net last year.

Jon Jealouse   March 16, 2023 at 3:55pm

Great thanks for the info!

Jorge Jensen    March 7, 2023 at 2:57pm

I just noticed that the MP40s are not scheduled to play any round from the blue tees. That's surprising and disappointing.

Spencer Young   March 7, 2023 at 7:42pm

Hey Jorge, that was a mistake on the graphic. MP40 will be playing White, Blue

Jorge Jensen   March 7, 2023 at 10:43pm

Thanks for the clarification Spencer. Looking forward to it.

Victor An    February 26, 2023 at 8:20pm

What tees will MA2 play?

Spencer Young   February 27, 2023 at 12:57am

MA2 will be playing Red then White

Justin Ernst    February 3, 2023 at 1:36pm

Hello. Can anyone comment on this course in general for someone who has never played it and what typical conditions are at the beginning of April? I know you can't predict weather in April. Just wondering what's typical.

Patrick Treude   February 3, 2023 at 4:42pm

There is a high probability the course will be wet and muddy in the Spring. If you check the course on Disc Golf Scene, you can get a good description and pictures of each hole.

Justin Ernst   February 3, 2023 at 6:50pm


Ryan DeGraaf    February 3, 2023 at 1:28am

Any update on what the schedule looks like for the day? Shotgun/tee time and how much time between rounds?

Spencer Young   February 3, 2023 at 1:29am

This will update soon, players will have between an hour to 2 hours for lunch
