Default Sahm and Northwestway courses get redesign and renovation.

Both Sahm Park and Northwest way Park disc golf courses are in the process of getting full redesigns and renovations. Sahm is being expanded by 9 holes into the woods adjacent to the existing 9 holes. When complete, it will be a full 18-hole layout with each hole getting two 5' x 12' concrete tees and tee signs, and A and B pin locations. The old original Mach I's will be replaced with 18 new baskets. Funding is being raised by selling hole sponsorship's ($750, logo/info on two tee sign and a shout out on the main new course map/rules sign).

Northwestway will get a redesign of its' 18-holes. Some of the original holes will be retained but others will be changed or eliminated (due to current unsafe design). Each hole will get two new tee signs and each hole will have two concrete tees and A and B pin locations, as well as a new course map/rules sign. Funding for NWW is by hole sponsorship ($350
per hole).

Clearing operations are underway at Sahm and will continue at both courses with completion goals of spring and summer next year. Check out the Hamilton Disc Golf Union facebook page or website for info about volunteer work days!

Awesome! Will Sahm incorporate the area south of the pavilion (behind hole 1's basket) as well as the woods? Or just the woods?

Also, will Northwestway venture into the wooded areas as well?

Sahm will be in the woods. The open are you mentioned is too wet and they want to preserve picnic spots. NWW will likely also get into some of the woods there.

Sounds awesome. Will definitely take it up a notch, especially at Sahm. Will the new holes be after hole 2 and come back to where hole 3 currently is (putting the 9 new holes in between 2 and 3) or will it go in and out, in and out, in and out (mixing new holes with old holes)?

Northwestway isn't awful if you are there before 4PM on weekdays. Avoiding the walking path and soccer fields will do wonders for the course. The wait time to safely play a hole is what is hurting the course.

The new holes at Sahm will go into the woods after current #2 and then join back up at Current #3. Also, old #5 "Amen Corner" will cut that corner and go through the woods.
