Default My Memorial Day Weekend

I had one of the most epic DG weekends I have ever had. I played 10 courses (4 of them new ones). 8 18 hole courses and 2 nine hole courses. 180 holes total. Here was my fun:

Thuresday: Got off work played my local course Peregrine Point
Friday: Black Butte DGC, and another round at Peregrine in the evening.
Saturday: Enterprise Community Park, Buckeye, Anderson River Park
Monday: Auburn Regional Park , Silva Acres (private 9 hole that will be added to the site soon), Condon Park, Hanging Oaks (Penn Valley), and Hammon Grove Park

All in all, my body is sore all over. But I'd do it again any day. I have much respect for what Lion is able to accomplish on his trips.

Played a new course on the way to the campground. It was in Eyota, MN. 9 hole course on flat ground with little trees. Made me realize a course without elavation changes is pretty damn boring.

I played four different courses over Memorial Day weekend. The courses ranged from flat and easy to wooded, steep, and technical. The ones I played were: Jackson Park, Pageant Hill, Black Hills State University Disc Golf Course, and Spearfish Canyon. Mine were all within two hours of where I live, but it was sure nice playing different courses for a change.

Played Whittier Narrows (sucked, as usual), but also daytripped up to Port Hueneme (zenbot's 'hood), went to a jazz potluck, and saw my daughter and her boyfriend (both occasional DGers) who just came back from a NorCal wedding, and caused miscellaneous havoc along the way

Yep, I agree, kind of a boring course. If you had gone down I-90 a little further you could have played the 18 hole St. Charles, MN course, which is a MUCH funner course.

I played St. Charles on Saturday and Bulldog Run DGC in Plainview, MN on Monday (with golf carts on a ball golf course).

I played glow at Rutgers on Saturday night, played a round at Tyler on Memorial Day and played two new courses today, South Mountain and Sellersville DGC. Sellersville DGC was surprisingly good for a nine-holer

Nice work. Playing all 45 holes at Reno Adventure Park tomorrow. Calm winds and 76 degrees should be fun. Hit me up when in Tahoe. The courses are in great shape. Turtle Rock tourney this weekend.

I got to play in our Fri. night random dubs. Then Tropical Storm Beryle moved in early Sat. and I haven't been able to play since. It still hasn't stopped raining for more than an hour or so. It's been a real bummer for discin, but we did manage to grill out lots of ribs.
