Hey HEY hey!

Going into the third of five weekends of this event, and the weather forecast is looking fantastic!

High's in the 40's, and no snow!

Good time to come on up and throw some plastic! And donate to a couple of really good causes!

Course conditions are perfect for winter golfing... any snow left is hard pack, so there are no issues with losing discs, at least at this moment. Up here, things change fast. Up here, Mother Nature runs the show. Up here, she's 10% Nature, and 90% Mutha!

Been to da mountain, eh?

If I could drive up there I would, it sounds pretty fun.

Default It's Winter Here Now!!!

Well, going into the last two weekends of these events, and Mother Nature has decided to bring it! Over 12 inches of powder on the course, with over 15 inches in the open spots!

All tee pads are shoveled, both regular and Ace Run pads. You will need to put ribbons on your discs, or implement your favorite winter time disc recovery system!

Come on up, support two great causes, and enjoy the pristine beauty of winter golfing at Mountain Man's Playground :-)

Default Last Weekend, Course Is A

Just got back from shoveling all the tee pads for the last weekend of the event. IF anyone is planning on coming Sunday please let me know in advance. I will be there all day Saturday.

Lot's of snow on the course, but it's entirely playable. I have main trails made but it's all light fluffy easy to walk in powder. Knee deep in places, yet I was able to hit solid ground every step with regular snow boots on.. Like walking through cotton.

Amazing winter conditions, IMO. Gorgeous, pristine, serene! Definitely need ribbons on your discs!

I'm finding food and money donations in my mail! A couple private course owner friends sent very generous donations, can't thank you guys enough! So, being a private course owner myself, Mountain Man's Playground will donate the amount required to reach $1,000 for the Norrie Park Basket Fund!
