October 9th and it is 20 degrees celsius outside and no wind! Jay, Murray, Gim and I played at the University. Just because the weather was nice did not mean my score was going to be nice. I had not played in over a month and it showed on a couple of holes. I finished with 6 strong holes and a +5 overall. Aperture Park is a fantastic 18 hole course located on the University of Lethbridge campus. The signature hole is Hole 16 where you are throwing through a gap and over the pond. I was fortunate to throw dead center of the gap and have decent run on the fairway. Hole 8 and […]
Out playing a round at Nicholas Sheran with Murray. Early in the season and it is a Friday so we played the Red’s. Great start with an Eagle on 1 and then a bird on 2! What a shot. Threw the Disc Craft Archer off the Tee on 2 and parked it right under the basket for a drop in 2. The rest of the game was solid with a respectful -9 finish. Definite highlight was the perfect throw on Hole 2 and playing on a sunny day in April.
Played a round at the Temporary Course at the Currie Reservoir and did NOT like it. The terrain was fun, the weather was decent the company was fantastic! My main complaint of the course is the philosophy. If I understand it correctly it was designed to be adaptable to play different holes and layout for tournaments verses regular play. The course has 21 holes and many of the fairways are ridiculously tight. In order to accommodate the 21 holes on a small space AND make the course tricky the course designers created ‘hazards’ rather than out of bounds. You take your shot where it lands but in the hazard you add a stroke. A few […]
A beautiful February day with the temperature easily over 10 C. Jay, John and myself were out there again playing for the second day in a row. The round was from the Reds again as there was a bit of a breeze but … IT IS FEBRUARY!! After playing strong for 2 months and posting personal bests I have crashed back to earth. Two days in a row the games and scores have been dismal … comparatively speaking. Yesterday I could not seem to focus on the basket so my putting suffered. Today, while the putting was marginally better, I could not seem to approach the basket and was relying on very long putts. I […]
The last day of January and it is a pleasant 9 degrees centigrade … on January 31st, 2021! Of course we are going to play a round of disc golf. My opening hole started with a forehand flick around a tree to sink an Eagle putt. I am in for a great game! Well, by hole 3 I knew that was not a true statement. My drives were solid to awesome, my approaches were at best medium, and aside from 3 holes my putting was very disappointing. Wind was not really a factor but my focus certainly was. For instance, on hole 16 I had the best drive ever, and missed a 3.5 meter Eagle […]
