Default Nockamixon DGC indefinitely closed

from Facebook:

Nockamixon State Park

The disc golf course is closed effective immediately. Baskets will be taken out until the ash tree removal is completed. There is no timetable in place for reopening.

Please be respectful of this process!

SMH. Home of the 2005 Worlds and a highly rated course. Speaks to the devastation of the emerald ash borer, the worst natural disaster I have seen in my lifetime. Michigan forests and parks have been decimated by this tiny spawn of satan.

I updated the conditions so nobody drives way out there for no reason.

Damn. Have played over 300 courses worldwide and Nock is probably my favorite...certainly the one I'd choose to "move to my backyard" if my backyard was big enough to hold it!
Can only hope that what Kevin and Brian created there can be SOMEWHAT still there after all is said and done.

There's going to be a lot of highly rated courses throughout this region that will look very different in the next few years. The amount of trees already removed from Lincoln Ridge made a big difference and there's more to go. Idlewild is in the same boat.

Dammit, been on my wish list for a decade now and was finally going to get to play it in June as I drive thru on my bachelor party. Sad times.

Nooooooooo! Nocky is one of my absolute favorites. Just a gorgeous, challenging, fun course.

I spoke with the designer of The Preserve DGC which is just 3 miles away from Nocky on Tuesday. It's a very new course on the other side of the lake and was calling to make sure it was open/ready for play...back on subject he mentioned it's looking around 9 months out for Nocky. Closed indefinitely might not be the best title but yes it'll more than likely be 2020 before any of us play it again. They took the baskets out Tuesday 3/19 FWIW.

Well, I'm super-thankful to hear the news here first. Was considering a very special disc golf trip here this weekend, will now come up with a different plan.

Osage is going to get hit pretty bad also. I remember Adam saying something like it is over 50% Ash out there. Most of the rest is a mixture of thorny trees, lol...


How much Ash do you have on your property?
