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.
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.
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.
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.
Back in February a couple of locals asked me to participate in their disc golf club. In just 7 months I have been holding on for dear life as this gang of plastic flinging crazies brute force march through project after project, with the mission of transforming the Fountain Hills Disc Golf Course into a premier world-class destination.
