Be safe out at Clark's tomorrow y'all. I walked out there today just to do a quick bridge check and hillsides are seriously slippery from the rain this week. Hope you enjoy the wonderful course though (we are quite proud of it)

Because of last night's rain, the creek was probably higher than normal at Clark's, but no real issues. Wonderful piece of property, with plenty appeal and some really nice elevation. Well conceived, challenging holes that require good placement. Some tight fairways, but nothing plinko-like. Challenging, but quite fair. Hit your lines and you'll score well. Miss fairways or get bad kicks, and strokes start to pile up.

Really enjoyed playing with Monocacy there and and Woodboro. Beautiful day, but good God it was windy as hell!

Also had a blast playing glow with SW and Matt at Creeping Creek!

It was great to play with BogeyNoMore, despite lots of silly throws with my 150-class drivers in the wind (per NWS averaged 13 mph with winds to 32 mph and gusts to 41 mph).

Supposed to be much nicer Sunday so have fun at Paw Paw. Sorry I won't be able to make it out there but I hope to take the dog and play Patapsco Valley in your honor.

Glad you enjoyed Clark's Run. I was privileged enough to work on it and the LOCO club has done a fantastic job of bringing the whole thing to fruition.

Taking a lunch break after playing Seth Burton (short tees to long/yellow baskets).

Armiller was able to join me for holes 7-18. Got to witness him Ace #12!

I played pretty well for the most part, except for an awful shot that turned over so far off line, it was truly spectacular. Feel incredibly lucky to still have the disc. Ended up just taking the penalty stroke and retain from the previous lie, because trying to play from the found disc would have been impossibly stupid. Carded 7 on that hole.


Heading out for Crush after lunch.

Enjoy Orange Crush, that's a fun course. And congrats to armiller for the ace!

I played Patapsco Valley long to long on Sunday. I was not unhappy with shooting a 77. Hope you make it out there one of these days.

Got Crushed.. helluva course with quite a few spectacular holes that are beyond my skill level.

With the marked contrast between Seth Burton and Orange Crush, plus dual tee/dual pins on both courses, Morris Park makes an excellent DG destination.

Really had a fun trip: 7 courses (4 of which I'd say are 4.0 or better), and 4 DGCR members played with.

Thanks to: Bruce, Andy & Matt, Jim, and Andy for your splendid company, and laughing with me as my discs misbehaved.

That said I did have some memorable shots:
Skipped off the water on Whipping Post #19.
My first black field Ace (birdied one of the short short baskets on Orange Crush... only problem is I was playing to the long basket).
And I'll never forget my turnover gone horribly wrong.

If any of you guys visit Michigan, gimme a shout!

Glad I got to throw with you, bogeynomore! I hope we get to do it again some time!

Just to make sure the record is right, the ace was #9, a shortie but a goodie. Zone backhand on a steep downhill, chains! I thought I saw it hit the ground through the bushes, but it just did a bounce in the cage. Second ace for me. Hole #12 was Bogeynomore's comically disastrous shot, which put him well down a hill and behind several million trees. The rethrow was definitely the right decision. Acing that >600' hole is in my dreams, but I couldn't hit that shot even on the internet...

Good times! I am so glad that Paw Paw got switched to Sunday, without the wind from Saturday!

The water skip on the final hole of the day was sweet!

Home at last. And yeah, my shot on 12 was every bit as bad as your Ace was good! Couldn't believe the turn and gliiiiiiiiide that shot exhibited. It just kept going...


... to the right.
Honestly expected to never see that disc again.
