Boom. Not a bad night.

Four Square continues to be a huge hit. Thanks Kevin Burgess for the idea. Watching Jim Banbury get so into it makes my week.

Mule #2 made it to the finals with Deanne Donaldson taking on Angie Jones and Marc Savard. It was a roller coaster of a battle.

Deanne’s boyfriend AJ Carey and Tong Ron Gale took on South Sider Hovis and Jaaahhnny Blaze.

Here’s a link to the men’s bracket results, and here’s the mixed bracket results.

Stumpy Creek http://charlottedgc.com/stumpy-creek/ http://charlottedgc.com/stumpy-creek/#respond Fri, 18 Dec 2015 19:56:21 +0000 http://charlottedgc.com/?p=1816 Stumpy Creek at Disc Golf Course Review]]>

Stumpy Creek – Est. 2002

Stumpy Creek Disc Golf Course is a hidden gem in the surrounding area of Charlotte. Stumpy Creek is Charlotte’s mountain course and it was installed and periodically maintained by the Charlotte Disc Golf Club.

Playing here will make the most in shape feel like they should be doing some extra cardio. The course open and ends with some OB bordered long open throws. The middle of your round is up and down through your classic piedmont woods.

Generally tight but fair fairways lead you up, down and around a number of ravines. You’ll empty your bag a few times on this course gunning aces and watching your disc fly on some of the open holes.

Playing the safe shot often yields a better score and an easily found disc. Just 25 miles north of Charlotte’s city center, you’ll feel like you made it to Asheville. Holes vary in length from 700′ par 5’s to 200′ throws to raised baskets.

There are 30 teepads (multiples on 15 holes) so you will be able to find the layout that is most fun and challenging for you.

A practice basket and ample putting space on an island green is a great warm up to start your round. Unfortunately on busy weekend soccer days the last hole or 2 can get crowded with parked cars so be sure to be safe and careful.

Go have fun and play this beast.

Robbins Park – Est. 2014

Robbins Park Disc Golf Course is a really fun Intermediate to Advanced level course.

The layout plays through a mature forest that is bordered on both sides by old farm fields. A small stream runs through the middle of the course and is in play on all but 5 of the holes. Rarely is there enough water to lose a disc but it adds risk to most drives.

The course utilizes all available elevation making you think you are at a baby Renaissance or RL Smith. Retaining wall protected fast greens greet you on a number of holes and make you pause and give thought to your next throw.

This course has it all; multiple teepads, 410′ open field shots to 200′ gauntlets and raised baskets. In the spring and summer much of the course is decorated by one of Charlotte’s largest milkweed patches. The bright purple flowers are a popular feeding waypoint for migrating endangered Monarchs and other butterflies.

Easily accessible off I-77 from exit 25 or 28 this course is NOT located at the Robbins Park Playground. It is behind the baseball fields of the Robbins Park West Moreland Athletic Complex (WAC).
