They list baskets going in at Flip City as 1980. That can't be right. I think it's 1998. It was an object course forever before he put in baskets, though. I can remember numbers painted on trees...

I remember them! We lived briefly in Howell while my wife was doing her practicum and I was in A^3's league for 1998. That was Hudson Mills' heyday. The Monster course was brand-new and Climo and...

Yep, it was only word-of-mouth for me until I ran into the PDGA website in about 1995. It was several years before I'd heard about any other courses other than Oxbow/Wilson/Madeline Bertrand/Rum...

From 1989-97, I played 4 courses. No, wait, make that 5 (because I made it to Hudson Mills in 1996, and boy was it the bee's knees!). Added three new ones in 1998 when I made it to Grand Rapids and...

I've talked to people who played Brewer in G.R. as a pole course in the late '70s. Bill McKenzie had object Frisbee golf at his hallowed grounds I think as early as 1980. I happened to be there the...

I remember a nice old couple telling me they thought the baskets were possibly deer feeders. This was in 1999, though.

Twenty years ago, it was all that. Boy did I have some good times on that original course in the 1995-98 range. With Grand Woods and Hudson Mills and original Kensington, I thought I was in heaven. ...

1998 or so Michigan MDGO state finals in Ludington - I missed like a 5' putt on the first hole of the tournament. An inch too low. ARGH, I can still see it happening.
