Hello NDG Friends!

The trees have been trimmed and we're all set for John's arrival tomorrow. He'll be in town for two days and by the time he leaves Saturday we should know exactly where to install our 18 teepads and 9 baskets on the north 9 holes.  No work this week.  Pending further instructions to remove any more trees or do more trimming, we'll begin installation of the teepads and/or baskets next week at some point.

The course is looking good and things are really coming together now.  Thanks as always to everyone for their continued support.

Hello NDG Friends!

We finished trimming trees on holes 17-18 this past week and they look really good now. This week, we're going to finish limbing hole 5, and we're going to tidy up everything in preparation for John's arrival on Sunday. In other news, NDG gave an update on the course progress at Tuesday's Nantucket Town Association meeting...our project was received well and I'm very excited about the possibility of working with the NTA to promote disc golf in the State Forest as an inexpensive and family-friendly recreational alternative on the island.

This week, NDG workdays will be:
Thursday at 5pm

Sunday at 1pm 

 

Hope to see ya out there tomorrow!

Hello NDG Friends!

We finished trimming trees on holes 1-4 last week...just four holes left to "limb up" on the north side.  In other news, John Houck has confirmed he will be arriving on island on August 28 to show us the exact teepad and basket locations for the holes on the north side...can't wait!  Finally, I want to thank Ben Moore and Moore Woodworking for building and installing the new NDG Information Board next to the parking lot in the South Pasture...can't wait to post the map, course work day information, and other course info in it...check it out!

Hello NDG Friends!

Back to work we go!  All the marked trees on the north half are down and it's tree trimming time now.  Right now, the plan is to get all the limbing done by the time John Houck, the course designer, arrives on island in late August.  We're getting close to getting this north half completed and I'm super excited!
