Thursday Disc Golf at Bunker Hill

Headed to Rob's private Bunker Hill Disc Golf Course for some rounds of Disc Golf. Rob gave me a 169 gram Star Destroyer for my Birthday, Sweet!!!! I set the new course record for the 8 hole layout (7 under) and broke my old course record for the 12 hole layout (4 under). I also got my 272nd Ace. A nice Skip Ace.

Rob repairing the Garage. Cubby's drive after the Ace made a hole in the siding. I gave Rob the Ace pot money $5.00 plus the 5 he gave me for the Ace and the buck he gave me for hitting metal to go toward the repairs :)

Towards the end of the day, we added another hole extending the 8 hole layout to 9. Rob set the course record for the 9 hole layout (7 under).

Rob took the last 27 holes. Nice shooting Rob!

Thanks again for the Star Destroyer!

Sunday Disc Golf at Rutgers

Headed up to Rutgers Disc Golf course late in the day for some rounds of Disc Golf. Temperature was 20 degrees with lots of wind making for a very cold wind chill. I got my 269th and 270th Aces. I also chained out of Holes 1, 8, 9, 11, and 16. It could have been a very big Ace day.

Tuesday Disc Golf at Rutgers with Daisy

Headed up to Rutgers on a nice winter day, 61 degrees. Today was the first time i brought Daisy to the course. She had a good time and walked for the most part but she seemed to enjoy being carried on top of my Disc Golf bag. Now my left shoulder is killing me :)

Kyle joined us for a round form the longs including the pond and field holes. Kyle won by two strokes. Not bad considering I had Daisy with me.

Sunday Disc Golf at Cape May Park, South Vineland Park, and Landis Park

Headed down to Cape May County Park Disc Golf Course for some Disc Golf with Big John. We got in 36 holes.

Video of a round of Disc Golf at Cape May DGC.

After playing at Cape May we headed to the new course at South Vineland Park. I thought the front nine was awesome with the back nine needing a little work. Big John thinks this is the best course in New Jersey.

We got some company on the back nine.

After playing 18 Holes at South Vineland we headed to Landis Park in Vineland for 18 holes before darkness.
