Last minute heads up - first ever MKDGC Glow Doubles is tonight, 10/23!!! Meet next to the practice basket (pool parking lot) between 6-6:30 to warm up, tape up some discs and then pick some teams. Hoping to have discs in the air no later than 7 pm.

Please remember to dress warmly (going to be a balmy 25 degrees tonight!) and if possible, bring a headlamp or flashlight to keep an eye on things in between holes. I believe we're going to keep it simple and shoot for Green to Green. The course is in outstanding shape right now, but please be careful particularly on the back 9 where abundant leaves, slopes and downed branches can pose a problem.

Thanks DisCap for generously supplying all glow materials and hope to see some new and familiar faces this evening!

I played in the double-doubles (also know as shambles) at Mine Kill. What an awesome course. Elevation changes, trees, two cement tee pads per hole, two baskets per hole, bomber holes, incredible views. A total gem of a course that must be played by every enthusiastic disc golfer!!! Wow!!!

Thinking about finally checking the course out on Saturday. Is it relatively easy to find your way around?

Mike and the park crew have done a great job of putting up directional signs. You'll see the front nine baskets on your way into the big parking lot. A few words of advice:

-After Hole 9, go across the parking lot and road to find Hole 10
-After Hole 12, take the trail to the right to find Hole 13's tee.
-Print out one of the scorecard maps I made just in case. Keep in mind there are 4 different layout combinations!

Lastly, I haven't been to the course in a long time, but if the ground thaws out, it might be kind of muddy so dress appropriately just in case. Enjoy !!!

Yo, C-Mart! What's happening man? Great to hear you'll be checking out MKDGC this weekend!

Although it's still supposed to be a little chilly Saturday (high of 33), I was out on the course this morning and conditions are definitely going to be muddy. The gate to hole 1 parking lot (next to the pool complex) should be unlocked, but if for some reason it isn't, just park next to the maintenance building and start on hole 4 over the pond.

Just replenished the scorecards in the disc golf kiosk. All four layouts should be included in there.

Wish I could join you but I'll be on the slopes teaching for a few more weekends. Have fun and happy throwing man!

Unfortunately I didn't make it out to minekill (wife had an impromptu er visit Friday night) but I'm planning on making the trip out soon. Will drop you a line when I do so hopefully we can meet up for a round!! Hear only good things about the course.

I haven't been there in a while but I work nearby. Almost all of the snow has melted; but I wouldn't be surprised to see some snow/ice in the woods and where the mountain blocks the sun. Minekill has a lot of very fine clay, so it might be slippery/messy with the recent snowmelt. Enjoy!

Was working near minekill today and snuck in 18. Course was in decent condition except for a few muddy spots (clay) tees were clear and didn't encounter any snow
