Our work crews have been hard at work. After much blood sweat and tears, here it is, the first finished Tee box at Taylor Mountain. If approved by the Rangers, this will be the prototype for all the new Tees at both Taylor Mountain and Crane Creek. Much thanks and kudos to Brad Cameron and Josh Sommers for the design and supervision. Want to help things move along? Watch our Facebook page and volunteer for a work crew!
Want to thank everyone for the great turnout at Sunday’s Battle of the Aces sponsored by Legacy. We wound up with 27 players, which is a great number for an event like this at Crane Creek. It enables us to play just the front of the course without crowding the holes.
The winner’s swag was taken home by Sam McCloud with his blistering 21 points. The runner up stack was taken home by Ryan Gardin with a comfortable 14 points, while Chris Lyons came in third with his 12 points. For the rest of you…nice job and better luck on the next event, which will be
The Trilogy Ace Race
on August 16th. That one is being run by Gus Gustin, but will be at Crane Creek. Get in touch with Gus and we hope to have flyers soon.
Sunday was also Brad Cameron’s Birthday and he provided a UFOS cake with ice cream and milk. Humm…something wrong with him providing the eats for his own birthday. Oh well…
Like to thank Lagunitas Brewing, who showed up with a huge locker of brew to sponsor our event. It was a surprise to us but much appreciated!!
Also cannot say enough about Legacy Discs, you guys ROCK! Our players packages were scheduled to arrive Thursday or Friday…when Saturday came with no shipment we began to panic (to put it mildly). Gave Steve Valencia a call to trace the shipment…which he did. UPS had shipped it someplace else, I don’t know where but it wasn’t to us. Steve packaged up another shipment and drove it up here himself so we would have it on Saturday. This is from Sylmar in the San Fernando Valley up to Sonoma County, an long booring and generally hot drive. He hand delivered it to our doorstep, then turned right around and made the whole trip in reverse! He had to be exhausted by the time he got home. Steve, you are a rock god! and Legacy rocks it big time.
We will see you for the fall Ace Race sponsored by Discraft, which will be held on October 4th. We do Legacy in the Spring and Discraft in the Fall.
The activities Ace Pools took a beating this week as both Singles and Doubles pools were hit, back to back.
The Singles Pool Was hit on 4/15 by Greg Goben for a total of $118 when he aced hole 11. Greg became out first winner of our new Ace Pin awarded to those who throw a second Activity ace. Greg’s first Ace was last year. Congrats to Greg!!
The Random Doubles pool was hit the very next day on 4/16 by Steve Schroeder. His blind ace on hole 5 earned him an even $100. Congrats to Steve.
Just a reminder that an Ace pool will never be worth under $20.00 and that there is always a $20 bounty on an ace of hole #18.
The first batch of mats for the new tees are currently in residence in our equipment shed. We still need substructure materials and hopefully we will have that soon. First up will be hole one which, of course, takes the greatest beating. Watch the groups’ Facebook page for scheduled work parties if you want to be in on the next improvements to the Crane Creek Course.
We also have a new split rail fence protecting the sliding hazard on the hill going toward hole 5. Thanks to Brad Cameron, Josh Sommers and the crew who turned out for the work crew!!
Also, a big thanks to Brad Cameron for his fine wood working skill in building the new box to hold flyers that is being put in at The Creek today. The previous box was literally torn apart by the (in)famous Crane Creek wind last season. This replacement is extremely sturdy and should last several seasons. Thanks, Brad!
We have nine brand spanking new and beautiful rubber tee pads that have been cut and measured and are just waiting to be installed.!!
Time for a work part y’all!
The Steve Werner Memorial is a PDGA sanctioned two day event consisting of three rounds of 18+ holes of exciting disc golf. Sponsored jointly by the United Flyers of Sonoma and The Disc Golf Outlaws, it was envisioned as a low entry fee tournament designed to introduce newer players to tournament play. The tournament is open for pre-registration beginning in February each year and registration is open to all levels of play. You can register online at the Disc Golf Scene or Download the Flyer.
We will be out at Crane at 10am this Saturday (Feb 8) despite the monsoon and the Bag Tag Event at Stafford Lake, just in case anyone decides to surf on over. The Ace Pool has been reduced to $118 after Brian Denn aced #6 last week and took the last $250 pool. So…we are rebuilding. Their will likely be no doubles tomorrow due to bad weather and course conditions. Brian, we are holding your winnings for you.
Congratulations to Adrien Cormier who aced hole 18 (Steve’s Basket) yesterday, January 18, 2014. Adrien collected $250 plus the $20 bounty that is always offered for an Ace on 18. Why? Because that is Steve Werner’s personal basket and Steve is very protective of it, that’s why! So protective of it that this is only the 2nd time (in a sponsored activity) he has allowed to be be aced since the course opened! An this was the first time it has been aced in the current position. Congrats to Adrien!
