King of the Hills Disc Golf TournamentKing of the Hills Disc Golf Tournament

Saturday, January 31st, 2015… the King of the Hills Disc Golf Tournament, presented by tournament director Rex Rogers and the FHDGC, is taking place in sunny Fountain Hills, Arizona at the “Pebble Beach” of disc golf courses. Thanks to the financial support of the local disc golf community and the Town of Fountain Hills, this single-day, two-round, PDGA sanctioned, B-tier event will offer the traditional Memorial Championship layout for Pros/Adv and a modified layout for Int/Beginners.

The Fountain HIlls Disc Golf Course features 24 DGA Mach X Disc Golf Baskets (the king of all baskets), round concrete tee-pads, & new color tee-signs. This course is no joke: long par 3s & 4s, high-risk water obstacles, and plenty of birdie opportunities for the seasoned pro (Paul McBeth scored -17 at the 2013 Memorial Championship).

Fundraiser Tee Sign Winners

On May 31st the FHDGC hosted a tournament to raise funds for new tee signs. Division winners, Jason Barela (Pro), Bill McDonough (AM), Trina Lettig (Women) & Sara Lange (Women) were awarded with their names on one of the new tee signs.



Grass Seeding.. Random Doubles Cancelled

On Monday October annual grass seeding begins at the Fountain Hills Disc Golf Course. The sprinklers run for hours a day.. so it gets muddy. I know it sucks.. but please avoid FH course to ensure optimal seeding results. Seeding ends on October 27th, but since Halloween lands on a Friday we will resume Friday Random Doubles on Nov 7th.



DONE: Mach X Rec Baskets

5 new Mach X Baskets have been installed. This brings the Fountain Hills Disc Golf Course to 24 Mach X’s and 1 Chainstar. 19 holes are now on the course with optional recreation targets on a few of the holes. Check out the updated course map.



Disc Golf Tee Sign Install

The FUNdraiser seems like just yesterday. Thanks to members of the club and support from the Town of Fountain Hills the Fountain Hills Disc Golf Club has installed the first new tee sign. The new sign was installed at tee pad 2. After tackling the “last big rock” we walked away with some insights and lessons learned: difficulty, required tools & supplies, bracing techniques, and estimated install time. This Tuesday the board will schedule the remaining signs and get to work.
