Hoo boy.

I'm currently working with Brian on a course redesign. He's also a HOF'er and here he is being interviewed for the 2010 Pro Worlds DGC which he was the Tournament Director:

I remember getting out to Lemon Lake in the late 90's when it was only one course, maybe two. I just played a round there a couple of weeks ago. Beautiful piece of property out there by Cedar Lake.

Hyde Park DGC held the very first sanctioned disc golf tournament in the city of Chicago yesterday and I was there to be a part of that history. It was a beautiful day for disc golfing with temps around 60 deg F and sunny. Here's some pics:

The outstanding logo created by the TD:


Jackson Park Harbor, across the street:


People just starting to filter in for the morning players meeting:


A view of the property. This is hole 4's fairway, which is about 540 ft:


Warming up:


Sharing the property with the Jackson Park Golf Club. The fairways for their hole 1 (left) and our hole 4 (right of the tree's) run parallel then break off. A really well thought out course design:


A dyed disc for the raffle which was signed and donated by Paul McBeth:


Players meeting. There were about 60 people registered, which was perfect for time purposes:


The Statue of the Republic (Golden Lady) of Jackson Park:

What a great day. I took 2nd.

Have you considered throwing your disc around the golf course to interrupt their games?

I considered it after one guy yelled over at us to let us know that "You know thats not real golf, right" as I rolled my eyes and responded: "Oh we know".

I was watching the Dynamic Discs Open last weekend and the players get to choose their walk-on/announcement music for the hole 1 tee-off. Check out Ricky's choice. lol

Will it hyzer? Is it PDGA approved? These are the... (checks thesaurus for synonyms for 'hard') thick questions.
