  • 2011 Farragut Open - Oct. 8th - 9th

    Here's the link to the list of registered players for the Farragut Open so far. I know Jack has received the proof for online registration through the PDGA but it's not available yet. It will be a PDGA B-Tier event. There will be 3 pools of players and all 3 courses will be played. I will try to get the flyer posted soon as well. Holler if you have questions or if you might be able to help out with sponsorship - I do have a sponsorship flyer I can e-mail out.

    Bummer

    I certainly understand why the date was changed but I'm totally bummed I won't be able to attend the INWS Finals now...especially since it's at the Gut.

    BUMMER :-(

        Here's the link to online registration through PDGA pending final approval from Jack. Get signed up sooner rather than later and help make the TDs life a little easier. Sanctioned disc golf tournaments ARE NOT easy to run so do your part as a player and sign up early.

          I just landed another really nice cash sponsor to the Farragut Open list of sponsors. BIG THANKS to Dr. Michael McDonald, MD, orthopaedic surgeon, and the entire Northwest Orthopaedic Specialists group. Once again proving why they are the best orthopaedic surgeon group in town

          I think so far that makes 2 BIG cash sponsors with 2 other large sponsorships on the way - 1 being from Rapid Fire Plastics Disc Golf in Post Falls and another that I won't mention yet only because it is not a for sure thing yet. Can't wait for this one.

            Hope I will be able to make this one. I am not sure what my work schedule looks like for October. Fingers crossed that I can make it

              Signed up today. Got myself in the ace pot and am stoked to play it this year. I missed last years and was upset about it.

                Played all the courses on Saturday. Shot pretty hot on Northstar and Wreckreator. Shot decent on A.W.O.L (formerly Double Black Diamond). Question is, what is the layout going to be this year? I'm assuming that it's going to be all three of the regular courses but in what order for what divisions?

                Plus, what is the course rating on A.W.O.L as of the moment? I shot a 3 over on Saturday so I know that it's got to be better than that.

                  I think Jack listed it on the flyer but I am pretty sure pool A (probably Open and Adv divisions) will play NorthStar & Wreckreator on Sat. then DBD/AWOL (whatever) on Sun. The other divisions will be something else but we will NOT have all 3 courses in play at the same time per request of the park to keep at least one course open to casual players - hence the cap of 144ish.

                  I thought based on last years FO that the SSA for DBD was about a 58 for 1000 rating. Could be wrong though.

                      Hoping that the A pool could entirely skip the Northstar. There will be at least 10 alternate tees or pins in place by the beginning of the Farragut Open. The tougher of the 2 layouts should be SSA over 60. Also I do not think that it's a good idea to leave the DBD as the open course for the public. Hope to get into some course work on the NorthStar too. There are some really nasty spots on the fairways and greens.. You know, 15ft from the pin with no look at all?

                        He has won the national dentist of the year award. So I guess that means he is the best in town by a ways!

                          I'd like to see the Advanced players play some sort of crazy arrangement of Wreckreator and DBD instead of Northstar. Then again, I really have no problem playing Northstar either. I love all the courses at Idaho's little slice of disc golf heaven.

                            Uhhhhh...crickets here Jeremy! Not sure if that was a joke or if you have the name confused with someone else. Orthopaedic surgeons are the ones who fix your broken bones, or torn ligaments/tendons. He doesn't work with teeth He specializes in arthroscopic repair of the shoulder complex, i.e. rotator cuff repairs and labral repairs and also does a hell of a job on knees as well. Perhaps you know of some players who throw nothing but thumbers and tomahawks? He would be a good one to go see when they all start tearing their rotator cuffs and other structures. I know a few of those players Most seem to be beginners who aren't willing to learn how to throw backhand or sidearm.

                              If the whole field of players is only allowed on two courses at a time, it wouldn't hurt my feelings in the least if I never stepped foot on North Star. Nothing against it or anything, but it's not really in the same league as the other two.
