Five tonals got swapped out for baskets today, so don’t be suprised when you step up to the pad and the view is a little different. The remaining three tonals will be swapped out in the next few weeks and we will be the only 27 basket course in BC!

Update

Only a handful out for doubles last night, but that did not stop Dax from taking home the $50 acepot with his shot on 24. Bagtag rounds continue on Sunday afternoons at 2pm and Doubles happens on Tuesdays at 5:30.

The club got a fundraiser disc signed by three of the top players in the world this last weekend (Paige Pierce, Will Schusterick, Eric McCabe). It will make for a pretty sweet prize!

There has been an increasing amount of trash on the course in the last few weeks. PLEASE DO NOT LITTER ON THE COURSE. Either pack out what you bring in, or use the garbage and recycling bins between hole 9 and 10. Or better yet, bring your empties to the recycling depot across the street and donate the money to the “W Disc” account.

There is a course maintenance day planned for this Sunday at 1 pm. Meet at the picnic table on the 9th hole and we will start on the teepads that are in most desperate need of gravel. Bagtag rounds to follow.

In exciting news, the Whistler Disc Golf Club has been awarded a $1000 grant from DiscBC. The money will enable us to replace the tonals on the course with baskets. Fundraising has already been steady and we are hoping to have enough money to purchase the baskets within the next few weeks.

There is now an account set up at the Nestors Bottle Depot to donate your empties to the Whistler Disc Golf Club. All proceeds will go to course upgrades.
