Just the fancy name for Kensingtons course.

I wonder how The Gulch is for lefties, I've been lucky enough to have solid Anhyzers (RHBH) that saves me strokes.

I'm thinking about practicing rollers because honestly there are a few holes that jacknife one side or the other too far for someone to hyzer the disc in but the right placed roller could save some strokes.

Yea, that was my confusion as well fullnelson. I don't really have a roller, but you are probably right, they might be a great answer to some of the unreachable holes at The Gulch, Obligation. Seems kind of silly to design a course for the use of rollers on multiple holes, without much other options though. I will keep trying to beat this course.

Most of the people I know who have played it are members from discgolfscene and are not dgcr members. Same thing with my course, Tomahawk Park. Not that we have anything against anyone here, it's just that we meet and know a lot more locals who will drive out to the sticks who are only on dgscene.

In reality, we are just regular joes, with regular jobs, who just happen to love dg and own enough land to have their own private course. With work, family, and other obligations, finding time to even play is limited. Add in finding time to mow/maintain and all I can really offer the public is a chance to join us on monday nights for our league. We don't make a dime from dg but enjoy sharing it with others.

We're not quite in the same league as Flip City or Addison Oaks, but are slowly getting there and add our own unique flavor to the disc golf experience. You could always check my course out at our league on monday nights (only 3 weeks left) at 6pm. After Labor Day, most of my free time will be focused on building other courses before winter settles in.

Muskegon's McGraft Park now has cement tees on twelve holes in the long tee position. The other long tees are to be done in the next couple of weeks. The short tees are supposedly also getting cement tees, but will require separate fundraising.

This course needed cement tees more than any I'm aware of.

The Gulch

Merrill Park West - The Gulch is the name of the course. Just opened a few weeks ago in Hamburg.

Grayling

Just played a new nine hole course in grayling. It is nine holes and is across the street from the fish hatchery. No name or anything, but the course was a fun play. Seems a little rough around the edges. There are no signs or teepads but the baskets are brand new. A sign is visible from the road (disc golf here) basically. When you pull into the park, there is nothing to indicate where to go, however. Just walk through the playground, pavilion, and down the stairs. First hole is on the left and throws to the right. After that the course is intuitive.

If someone already posted about this course, sorry to be redundant. I graze on this thread all the time and did not see anything.

Haven't heard of it yet. I'm sure we'll get more details later.

Speaking of Grayling, the Hanson Hills courses have been renamed appropriately on DGCR to Grayling Rotary - PDGA and Grayling Rotary - Pine Knoll. Credit and appreciation is now given to the Grayling Rotary Club for their support of disc golf And if you haven't played both those courses, you are missing out. Neither course gets enough credit for how nice they are and how great the disc golf is.

Rosevear Park in Owosso will have the concrete pads installed on Sunday August 25th. Anyone that can help us should come on out and give us a hand. We are FINALLY in the finishing stages of completion. Baskets are the final addition to be installed before October. The end is near!!!
