Round 6 Prizes

Hello Friends! A big thank you to the 27 players who braved the downpours and light show for the sixth round of the 2019 Old Farm Summer League.

Tougher weather conditions made play interesting and with handicaps almost anything can happen. Both Lightning John (45) and Brandon Griffin (46) played incredibly well and tied at 40 with handicap. Due to a small communication error at the course there was no playoff, so both players are awarded the win. Tyler Holmes (51) rounded out the podium in ... more

Hello Friends! A big thank you to the 29 players who showed up to the fifth round of the Old Farm Summer League today. Despite the forecast, it was a beautiful day for disc golf.

Due to construction, a few alterations were made to the course for the foreseeable future. Hole 17's fairway is now mostly Out of Bounds (Hole 16's fairway is available for the safe play) and the tee pad for Hole 18 has been moved to the pathway just in front of the construction zone. We will continue to mo ... more
