We had breakfast (BYOShiner) at Daysi's on Main St in Mt Vernon. A little slow (isn't everything in Texas), but it was good authentic mexican food -- get a breakfast burrito (only tree-fitty!). They have a fantastic deck out back. Although I wouldn't put a lot of stock into their long-term survivability. The local pancake shop (Dairy Barn, I think) was highly recommended but it looked too busy for us.

No, but it is Mr. Houck's NC wooded course. It should be tough, fair, and different from anything else we have in the Raleigh area. It isn't done, but we're getting there.

With demand for Selah going up among disc golfers, I see needing to reserve the Corral House months in advance of my next trip. But how will that play with events going on out there? I'd be fairly PO'd if I made my reservations and then a "Paige and Eric" fundraiser type thing got approved for the same weekend. And on a bigger scale, I reckon it's impossible to stay there (with an expectation of playing disc golf) the same weekend as Am World Doubles. But the PDGA schedule isn't usually set until Oct/Nov, right?

John or Hickersons, if you're reading this, can you answer how that scheduling will take place? Is the weekend for Am World Doubles already picked for next year? I mean, I'm going in March-ish next year, and I'll certainly want to reserve the Corral House before Oct/Nov.

(Obviously I'll e-mail John if he doesn't respond here. Again, just posting here as I figured it was of general interest.)

Played Zboaz, Saddle Hills and the new Azle course today. I'm a lobster from the sun. All were first play throughs.

Z Boaz: If I remember correctly, I wouldn't call hole 14 fair. I'm all for technical shots and placement over distance, but from what I saw, there's not a line to the basket. Random trees through all of 14's fairway. I'm tempted to list 18 as well, although its not as bad as 14.

Saddle Hills: lots of blind shots, especially from the longs. If I wasn't with someone who knew the layout, I would have been lost many times. I'm just starting to dabble with long boxes. This was a tough course! The wind today made it interesting. Great use of the land it's on. Nice change of pace with elevation shots. Loved the holes where the creek comes into play.

Azle: short course! We finished in an hour fifteen, and that's with taking our time and unloading our bags on some of the ace runs (there are a lot). Course mainly plays around a baseball/soccer field, with some into the woods holes. Leave your drivers at home. I think the longest hole was around 350. Concrete pads, tee signs, easy navigation. Bit of a walk from 18 to the parking lot (hole 1). Overall fun, nothing too challenging. Good to experience if you are on the west side of the metroplex.

Unless they change their outlook, Am world dubs is always the same weekend every year, or has been for awhile now.

That whole calendar-shifting-by-a day-or-two always throws me on the "same weekend" thing.
