Perfect weather for the Deer Creek DG/BG Scramble on 6/8/13

I am going to start off by saying, “If you missed this event, you missed out on an incredible day of golf”!  The weather was perfect, the courses were in as good as shape as I have ever seen them, and the overall atmosphere was quite jovial.

When we first arrived at the course, there was another golf outing that was just getting ready to head out onto the ball golf course.  They all had their “breakfast drinks” in hand and an entourage of lovely ladies to “help” them around the course.  It was pretty apparent that we were going to have to try really hard to be the unruly bunch of the day.  SIDE NOTE – It was also noted later in the day that one of our groups was privy to a little unplanned side entertainment.  Since everyone in attendance was of legal consenting age, I guess you could just consider this a bonus!  But enough of the interesting anecdotes…let’s get to the competition…

The tournament started off with 2 rounds of 4-Man Scramble disc golf on the 4700’ White Course.  It was decided that both rounds would be played back-to-back to help save a little time.  Everyone was allowed to take a little break as they passed the clubhouse if desired, but it didn’t appear that anyone felt the need other than for the bathroom or for some cold beverages.  A bunch of good scores were tallied and there even was an ACE by Team Hogan.  It was a very tight race going into the ball golf – 3 teams were separated by only 3 strokes.

Deer Creek C.C. provided a build your own taco bar lunch in between so that everyone could stay on site.  Nothing like a couple of overstuffed tacos/burritos and a couple of cold ones to get you ready for the afternoon!

Since this really is a disc golfer event, the 2 rounds of disc golf helped keep the importance of the ball golf round down a bit.  As you would expect, most teams brought in a ringer that could take the pressure off of the rest of the ball golf newbies.  Either way, it was a refreshing change to play the original game that inspired the one that all of DG’ers love so much!  Team Stacked and Bogey Golf both turned in awesome scores (63 and 64 respectively), and overall I was very surprised at how low the ball golf scores were.  Not bad for a bunch of disc junkies!

Team Stacked ended out coming out on top when it was all said and done.  Considering their team name, it was probably a bit of a relief and a respite from any long-term ribbing from the other teams.  Teams Ballz Deep and Slow Pokes rounded out the top 3 spots.  Congratulations to the winners and to everyone that had as good a time as I did!  This event will certainly become a mainstay in the GDS tournament lineup for years to come.  The format might get tweaked a bit here and there, but the fun level should always remain the same.  See you next time!

 

P.S. The next Gateway Disc Sports event will be the Iron Man on July 6th.  The details are still being hammered out, but rest assured that this event will truly be the definition of “No Wimps, No Whiners”!
