Can't call it an ace.

Thursday i was at hole 4 at bear creek DGC. all the holes are tones and this one is a clear fairway and the tone is surrounded by a big circle of tree's so i threw a little right with a little hyzer the line is perfect comes to the right side of the trees and turns right in disc comes down at the same height of the can but can't see the can due to a few trees right in the way. so when i finally get up there i see the disc laying right under the can. i think i prob hit it, but it sucks cause it wasn't seen so i can't call it an ace. so i am still aceless.

First ace I ever "experienced" was on a blind dog leg left on Blue Mt. DGC in Missoula, MT, friend of mine threw a hyzer shot in there, disappeared from view for a moment and then BING!! the tone could easily be heard from the tee

We were joking that he paid someone to hit the tone pole once he saw his disc fly past

They have since replaced the tone poles with baskets at that Blue Mt. course.. I like the baskets better overall but the tone poles were actually pretty cool and demanded a lot of accuracy.

The other established course at the time (late 90's / early 00's) in the area had trees for targets

I'm out of Eugene, by the way, where do you hail from? I see that Grants Pass has a number of courses I've been curious about playing.. I have managed to go to Whistler's Bend near Roseburg, OR (it is every bit as awesome as the peeps here report it), and Dexter Park is my favorite local course..

They're talking about adding another course here in Eugene at Alton Baker, my fingers be x'd

I played Blue Mountain this Summer on my way through Missoula. A Very nice course. I had a lot of fun there.

Also played Snow Bowl. Nice area, nice views, but not so much fun. Wish I had just played Blue Mountain twice.
