Thanks, Brandon. I have to say, I was stunned by how beautiful it looked, and it got more so every hour the crews were working on it. I agree with you that once the grass grows back in and a few...

Nice little town called Zearing with a couple pretty parks. To be more accurate, Zearing will have a 6-hole course in one park and a 3-holer a few blacks away.

Rodney, as I said, the best number I can put on the Blue tees is 950. Players with ratings in the 920-980 range should find the Blue tees to be a good fair test for them.

Carts, Aces, and more

I'm doing some research for a "Disc Golfer" article, and I could use some help finding data. When there is no data, I'll take educated guesses.
