I think we all got to experience what disc golf in hell is like: throwing towards a basket that is impossibly far away and seemingly never getting any closer. In typical Carey Park Summer League fashion, an alternative format was proposed during the 3rd week of play. We tried completing a "cross-country" round which consists of throwing from one tee to a basket other than the one designated for that hole. After randomly selecting the order of baskets, we were left to t...Read Full Post »

After receiving plentiful rainfall, the weather cleared out and left us a great night for disc golf. With another solid turnout of 15 players, tonight's round was played Singles on the standard format. Closest-to-Pin tonight was Hole 16 and was claimed by Adam Bleything. Keep your eyes out for an email regarding next week's format as we may decide to change things around with a new format. Here were tonight's scores:

The 2013 season of summer league play kicked off tonight with the largest attendance to date, 16 players!

I'd first like to welcome aboard the players who are new to Summer League and thank you for joining: Alexandre, Tony, Stanley, Max, and Adam! Also joining us were a couple of players who are returning from the 2011 season, Ian and Devin, glad to have you bac...Read Full Post »

8.25.12 - A total of 34 players participated in the 2012 Salt City Open. Rain and thunderstorms the night before resulted in course conditions being less than par, but players still posted respectable scores. The overall champion was Ben Wiggins, competing in the Pro Open division, with a monstrous score of 19 under par!
Thank you to Brandon Mace for putting together yet another fun KDGA event, and to our sponsors: Absolutely Flowers, Bogey's, Carey ...Read Full Post »

Just a reminder that the end-of-the-season Skills Competition will be held this Thursday, August 9th.

Contests will take place at the north end of the course so players are encouraged to park along the fishing pond.
Contests will test various aspects of disc golf including Closest-to-Pin, Accuracy, Putting Shootout, and a few interesting side gam...Read Full Post »

The 2012 season of League Play came to an end this evening as players competed in their final, competitive round. Trash bags were distributed to both of the groups in an effort to clean up the course, which was in dire need of a "trash round". However, the scores were far from being garbage as several players posted personal bests for a League Round this season.
1st - Adam Bleything -- 52 (-2) -- 5 points
T-2nd - Josh Carroll -- 53 (-1) -- 4 p...Read Full Post »

Early this morning, some thunderstorms and severe winds caused quite a bit of tree damage throughout the city of Hutchinson. The disc golf course suffered its fair share of damage, some of the worst I've seen in a while.
There are plenty of smaller limbs tossed across several fairways, but Holes 1 and 7 received some heavier limb damage. A large tree limb was left tangled among the branches near the basket on #1 and a couple of heavy limbs lay near the tee pad of...Read Full Post »

As we finished our final alternate league format of the season, I feel that the Blue Course layout has come a long way since its inception last season. The hole variation provides a nice compliment to the standard concrete tee format and flows very nicely with the existing course features. Tonight, eight of us played through it and posted some respectable scores under calm, slightly cooler conditions.
1st - Josh Carroll -- 49 (-5) -- 5 points (+10 ACE BONU...Read Full Post »

We are only two rounds away from ending the 2012 season of summer League Play! Don't worry, there is still plenty of disc golf action to enjoy through August. Tonight was hot & humid after a light rainfall swept the area shortly before tee off. Players are still fighting for their spot in the Top 5 of the points leaderboard before the end of the season. Nice shooting everyone!
1st - Chris Mattison -- 48 (-6) -- 5 points
2nd - J...Read Full Post »
