Back in September, a comment was left on one of my posts about the new John Mackey DGC hole positions regarding the planning of improving the park by way of tree renovation and planting.  The Hagginwood Community Association seems to be working with the Sacramento Tree Foundation and the City of Sacramento Department of Parks […]

Yesterday morning I saw that some of the baskets were moved around, and hole 7 has a new position. This long position is between the two trees just before the incline to the hole 8 teepad. Nice to see yet more variety out there!

Understable turning discs: What are you using?

12 Sep , 2014  

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m still pretty new to the sport of disc golf, and am figuring things out.  After making the n00b mistake of buying fast discs, I’ve come to the realization that I just don’t have the arm speed to throw a speed 12+ driver the way it’s supposed to be thrown.  I ended […]

This morning I finally made it out to throw a bit before work, and hit up one of my favorite courses (partially due to proximity to midtown), John Mackey Park DGC.  Coming up to hole 2, I noticed it was set for position A.  Great.  Didn’t feel like battling that hill first thing in the […]
