Cains & Chains - A Carl Cubbage Benefit

This tournament is a benefit for the family of Carl "Cubby" Cubbage, an area disc golfer who collapsed during a casual round and is now in the hospital in very serious condition. It was originally scheduled to be a Masters+ tournament, and we decided to leave it this way, as Cubby plays in the Advanced Grandmasters division (MG1). It is a "trophy-only" event, which means that all payout and player pack funds will go to Cubby's family.

Information:

- Sanctioned C-Tier Event -- the first sanctioned
event at the Herr Park DGC

- Masters and above divisions only

- Trophy-Only; All pro payouts, player's pack
funds, and am merchandise prize funds will
be part of the donation to Cubby's family.

- There will be raffles and CTP events to raise
donation funds.

Pre-registration is open here: https://www.discgolfscene.com/tournaments/Chains_and_Canes_A_Carl_Cubbage_Charity_Event_2017

Handicap League -- Week 3 -- March 18, 2017

We had another beautiful night at Buchmiller DGC for the weekly Tuesday Night Handicap League.  40 players turned out for the event, which featured the addition of another long basket to the regular short layout -- we're now up to playing #2 Long and #17 Long.  Steve Heckel and Luke Haney tied for the top honors with an 8-under 46 -- however, since Steve came into the night with the lower tag, he walked away with tonight's top gold tag -- #3.  Gold division scores were pretty tight tonight, with 3 players coming in at 47 (7-under), 3 players coming in at 48 (6-under), and 2 players at 49 (5-under).  That makes 10 players within 3 strokes of the lead!  On the Silver side, Glen Brodersen took the #1 tag with a decisive 49 (5-under), beating Will Tripp's 2-under 52 and Rich Saures' 1-under 53.

2017 Leagues are off and running!!

The Tuesday Night Handicap Leagues at Buchmiller Park kicked off this evening with 38 players filling the course for an early season run at the "Short" layout.  Jimmy Fritsch came out firing and took the #1 Gold tag with an impressive 10-under 44, followed by Derrick Diffenderfer with an 8-under 46 and Travis Dombach with a 7-under 47. The #1 Silver tag went to Aaron Swarr, who crushed the rest of the Silver tag competitors with a 5-under 49, followed by Bud Andrew (even par 54) and Glen Brodersen (1-over 55).

In total, we had 39 players on the course tonight, including three new tag members, Luke Haney, Justin Brinkman, and Marshall Hoellworth (I hope I didn't butcher anyone's name!); and seven non-tag member guests.

Lancaster County's newest course is now open!

Muddy Run Disc Golf Course is now open to the public. There are gold and silver tees for most holes, with a mix of open and wooded fairways. At 9,044 feet from the gold tees, and with a total elevation change of 690 feet, this course has every challenge an upper level player could want.  Narrow fairways.  Protected greens.  Challenging footing.  And risk/reward decisions on almost every hole.

For more information, check out detailed hole descriptions and a video walk-through here.
