New course in Hoover

Posted by curly2284

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.

It’s official! New Course in Hoover!

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.


Can’t Believe It’s Not [a] Putter

I’m telling you–and Stephen can attest to this–you have to invest in a Leopard. For me, it’s the DX. Two of them to be exact.

My Leopards are so accurate and predictable, I use them from everything to fairway driver to midrange, to most used as my PUTTER. I have used these over and over and can depend on them every time. They fly fairly straight at high speeds and have a slight hyzer fade at the end. If you can get where you can predict the fade at the end on ranges of 25+ ft, you’re golden. If I’m anywhere within 100 ft. of the pin, I’m always throwing a Leopard.

My two longest ringers ever at distances of  ~ 90+ ft, were both thrown with a 166g DX Leopard. I’ve hit numerous shots from around the 30-40 ft. range with these same two Leopards. Check this out, today on three consecutive holes I rang from ~30, 25, and 18 ft respectively. Bombed the next hole, then the next hit another birdie from 32 ft. I would never play without one. Great for all experience levels. DX’s run you shy of $8, get you one. And then lets hear stories.
