I just completed updating dual tees, dual basket placements and routing for Blueberry Hill on UDisc using their new Smart Layout feature. Took a fair amount of time to get two tees and two basket positions entered. However, once that was done, I was able to quickly enter 9 separate tee/pin combo layouts without needing to ever do a complete layout routing for all 18 holes the old way. Check it out. Since we now have Mach VII baskets in the long position on all 18 holes and DISCatchers in the short position on all 18 holes, how do we indicate the "Hole Type" on DGCR with only one slot?

So I'm confused - I'd heard that the properties were being potentially sold or a buyer was being sought, but I'm also seeing new lots were purchased around the course by Gold 8?

Is MM looking to make a more attractive package for a potential buyer? Or is this an indication that he's planning on staying involved longer than expected? I'm sure its a more complex situation than "he was gonna sell, now he's not" so I'm curious what the plan is.

hadn't ever considered that. it would be cool to have a field indicating the number of baskets per hole. maybe one day when the site gets a major redesign that could be a thing; i could see how it could lead to some cool features for customizing a course page.

From Book of Faces...

Tom Wincse aka Mountain Man


I believe that I have finally located a buyer for Hignbridge Hills. I anticipate a solid offer next week. Unfortunately, I do not anticipate the new owner to continue disc golf operations on the hill.
We will be open through October 31, and. I will be maintaining the courses to my high standards until the end.
If you need to get up here for one more time, the first time, or to see the courses in the best conditions ever, now's the time.

Heartbreaking, gutwrenching news. I have never played the complex. Good for Mountain Man, bad for me........................n-n-n-n-n-no...bodies fault but mine.

Worst news I've heard in awhile.

I got a 4 day weekend coming up that I was going to head up that way anyway. Looks like I'll be planning an October trip as well now.

Sad, sad day for WI disc golf. Kudos to Tom for all the hard work he did after taking over the hill though. He kept it alive longer than it otherwise would've been, and has it looking better than ever. It will be sorely missed for sure.

Another bitter reminder that private courses are ephemeral. Enjoy them while you can. Half of my all-time favorite courses were private courses, that no longer exist.
