Alright guys I got the printshop up and running as soon as jt gets me the designs im gonna get some shirts printed up and also gonna do some embroidery on collared shirts for us as well.
Well I finally made it official. I am now an active member of the pdga. My pdga number is 49213. For anybody wondering it is super easy to get. Fill out the form online takes 10 minutes tops, pay them 53 dollars and you have your number. I was really trying to do it before last weekend cause I was planning on playing in my first tourney. The tourney was held at Goerge ward, but some work obligations came up so I didn’t get to play in it. But I did decide that it was time I got my membership so when I did get to play my first tourney I wouldn’t be the noob with no number, just the noob. I would suggest to everyone else who has not got there number to go ahead and do so. I absolutely cant wait till my swag gets here.
This is not the best photo but this is one of the 5 different colors koozies that everyone should get monday or Tuesday. I’m sending 10 per state. 10 to Texas 10 to Ga and iv got 10. I’ll give Joe and jeramia there’s to distribute out. I hope everyone thinks they are as cool as I do.
Pretty good day I finished even and Joe finished 3 over. Had a great time drank a few beers, we both made some great shots, and told some great stories. The epitome of a good day. Afterwards Joe got a tour of jasper and got to experience the excitement of our local Mexican restaurant, Pericos.
I’m on a boat on the way to the bahammas. On the way to charleston allready stopped and scouted courses for when we get back in port. I’m not sure if any of y’all know this but there are not any dg courses in the bahammas. However I have my driver, mid, and putter with me. We have decided on one of the islands we are going to set up a mini course. I’ll keep ya posted….
Best yet that I have shot at George Ward. I finished 7 over and that was after a terrible start to the front nine.
Joe actually sent me the link to the info about this course so I wanted to share it with everyone. This makes me extremely exhited this will make 4 18 hole courses in birmingham alone.
DGB has received official confirmation that we’re ready to get started on Birmingham Metro’s newest course! This project has been in the works for well over a year and has finally cleared the last few hurdles to start work.
With the land provided by the City of Hoover, DGB has been tasked with installing a championship level disc golf course at the “Inverness Nature Park”. The Inverness Nature Park is a tract of land located only three miles south/east of the 459/280 interchange. The park is mostly wooded with a few open areas, rolling hills, and some water. Initial plans for the park include parking, benches & trash cans with future plans to include restrooms and a pavilion.
With the available land, we’re expecting a championship level course that will play Par 60+ from the Pro tees! Initial estimates have the Pro tees at almost 8,000′, for comparison George Ward is 5,600′! Am tees will be similar in length to George Ward but will provide additional challenges with wooded fairways and elevation.
DGB will be providing the baskets, signs, and course design for this project and we’re going to need sponsors! Sponsorship opportunities will include graphics and other information on tee-signs and baskets. If you know of any businesses that would like to support our course in Hoover please let me know.
