Hole 14 redesign. As of today, hole 14 on Rivers Edge has been redesigned. It is now a straight tight shot off the tee that finishes on a long righty hyzer. Approx distance is 410. I will have an accurate measurement for you all shortly.

Was practicing out on the field and left a purple bio fuzion tresspass out there... Just traded for it didn't really like it, probably said Zach Keasling on the back with his #. Traded for 14 of his discs. Threw them all and forget one doh!

Matt Rinker   December 11, 2013 at 3:33pm

check with the park staff, if they find a disc they hang on to it til someone claims it.

Q .    September 5, 2013 at 10:11pm

Left my prodigy F2 under the pine trees, by the parking lot, last night at summer league. Did anyone pick this disc up? I will give a disc to whoever returns it to me.

Larry Dalimonte   September 5, 2013 at 9:22pm

Hey just an FYI I went out their earlier this afternoon to look for my lost plastic. By pine trees by the parkinglot I assume you mean the line of pines parallel to the parking lot. I searched up and down, I searched the field, and even the pines surrounding the field by hole one and saw no sign of ... more

Q .   September 6, 2013 at 6:59pm

Thanks it is gone. I had it during warm ups and just left it there I know it was there because someone was asking me if I liked it. I walked away from the thing. Too bad it was loving the new fitz course.

Tim Thomas    August 11, 2013 at 7:54am

Joshua "Tree" Bucher    July 22, 2013 at 2:57am

Lost an Orange champ orc. Maybe on two, long basket. No name just the Chinese symbol for "Tree". Lost it third round of CCR Open.


Fred Vocino    June 29, 2013 at 4:59am

Went to Burchfield today with a plan to play both courses. After 3.5 hours on Devil's Den I quit after 17 holes; I was tired of looking for my Buzzz and the lightning got closer. Spending most of the time looking for drives in the rough causes me to wonder. With all the attention given to the fairway mowing, is the plant growth right off the fairway an intentional part of the course design? It is difficult to imagine how that growth will appear by the time the CCR Open happens.

yes i see your point, although 17 is a island hole, and if you dont hit the island, you re-tee. But definately, the waist high rough is time consuming of a round. i lost a yellow avenger off to the right of the fairway on 7 today, didnt think it went that far in, but couldnt find it after 20 mins.

Jim Knudson   July 1, 2013 at 8:52am

Tough course Fred. Bring a spotter or 2!

Fred Vocino   July 1, 2013 at 1:02pm

Jim, I think the course leaders understand the rough overgrowth issue. With time, the intended obstacles will develope, and reliance on large sections of hay will diminish. I expect to like Burchfield more as a good balance of rough is found. I play a course in Grand Rapids that is very open and rel ... more

Fred Vocino    June 25, 2013 at 8:37pm

This a request that someone who regularly plays at Burchfield gives an occasional post so that people can see when the courses have drained enough to be playable. Note : a few sloppy spots are to be expected

on the other hand, it's been raining for two days straight now.

Justin Abram   June 25, 2013 at 6:55pm

expect Rivers edge to be mushy, if not flooded on some holes. Renegade's Trail should be mostly okay with some standing water in the bowls, 11's fairway and 17.

Fred Vocino   June 25, 2013 at 7:12pm

Thanks, most of my concern was that the spring rains had drained. These next few days will hopefully soak in by early next week.

Harold Fernando    June 21, 2013 at 3:48pm

Threw a Star Destroyer in the **** past long pin hole 2 at Renegade's Trail. Has initials HPF and my phone #. Please call or give to Rinker. Thanks.

Steve Nolff A3   June 14, 2013 at 3:50pm

Cool Justin, we were out at Burchfield over Memorial Day weekend at the skeeters were BAD, on both courses. Had one bug named Rocco steal my dang VIP King. If you guys up there see this mosquito, steer clear, one tough bugger.

Justin Abram   June 14, 2013 at 9:37pm

haha, I didn't find any Kings out there today. That's a bummer, man.

Jon Tucker    June 9, 2013 at 6:32pm

Lost a green champion wraith with big clover in black marker on rivers edge. It would b great if I could get this one back. Also lost a yellow z surge on hole 3 long basket on devils den. Just hit an ace with it last week!!! If any one finds these a reward is up!!


Steve Nolff A3    May 23, 2013 at 6:52pm

Little help from a local? What is the story with Devil's Den, Rivers Edge and Burchfield. Three courses? Are they all open? Have anyone played the course with Deep Woods Off, or is that not helpful. Skeeters are horrible everywhere right now. We are thinking about heading up that way to play for a day or two. Any feedback would be great.

We played singles leagues on rivers edge last night. The only time we didn't have to contend with mosquitoes is when it was absolutely downpouring. We were using off deep woodsman deet, which claims to be 98% and it was more or less useless. We reapplied it several times to no avail. The course ... more

Bo Fought   May 23, 2013 at 1:05pm

Thanks Larry, did not know of the name change!

Steve Nolff A3   May 23, 2013 at 2:40pm

Thanks a ton, you guys are great. Hope to get out on get beat up by these courses and the mosquitos.

Larry Dalimonte    May 17, 2013 at 5:40am

Lost 2 discs during the tournament last Saturday on river's edge. One on hole 12 and one on hole 15, both in the standing water. Both are marked with my contact info would love to get them back thank you.

Yes and yes! I'm assuming you're not a master psychic so you've seen them somewhere reciently?

Geoff Shaw   June 7, 2013 at 2:51pm

i have them both, they both were found where water used to be, and where my disc landed lol. they smell terrible, tried to wash smell away with no luck

Geoff Shaw   June 7, 2013 at 2:52pm

i tried to txt your number earlier

Phil "Puttimus Prime" Common    May 17, 2013 at 4:45am

I would strongly suggest anyone thinking about playing here in the near future to reconsider. I have never witnessed so many mosquitoes in one place at one time in my entire life. It was completely overwhelming and miserable. I love the course and drove over an hour to play it, but walked off after 7 holes of Rivers Edge cause we couldnt take it anymore. Hopefully the park staff takes immediate action to solve this problem or i dont think i will be enjoying this amazing course for many months.

Jon Bradley   May 17, 2013 at 9:42am

Michael Wagner    May 2, 2013 at 7:52pm
