Re: BDGA#11 - Burnlaw Battle for Bertha - 4th/5th October

I too like 17 and hope we can keep it as it's the longest standing hole on the course and it plays out of the wood rather than fully within it. 16 is going to have to go as is the 12th green. The more I look at the plantation though the more potential I see. The future of burnlaw disc golf is really...

I'll do a press conference at burnlaw! Lol There is a good reason for everything. And I would like to address all these points in real time, real life, not typing away endlessly. As you're not coming I'll just say that this is the last time we get to use the wood. It's Oran and briony's area and we ...

Re: BDGA#11 - Burnlaw Battle for Bertha - 4th/5th October

Paul - Holes 1 and 4. They are what they are. Play them in the flesh and watch how the bigger arms navigate all the OBs and DZs. Danger for all. Three good shots may come out better than sneaky long shots. Del - yes steps are on 14 as per picture I sent you. But raising an important point about all ...

Re: BDGA#11 - Burnlaw Battle for Bertha - 4th/5th October

There are many people who haven't yet played burnlaw.
It is seriously special and the course is always at its best in the autumn.
Close to east coast main line and Newcastle international airport, also a1 and a6.
Come and join the party!

It's all just been restocked and I am sending pre orders down to Matt Cutler on Wednesday afternoon. So if I can be of service to provide a disc or two...

Why the eye rolls?
It's perfectly clear

The nationals comprises of two elements:
The nationals - top 16 match play
Not the nationals - everyone else, usually a mix of stroke play and match play

Get with the program :roll:

Best course I have ever played (Java maybe tops it, but the views make it the best by a mile) favourite place to play, including Calgary Beach for the warm up. Definitely a challenge no matter the weather. A few holes could be extended potentially here and there if the forecast is good..? Hole 1 for...

Re: BDGA#4 Isle of Mull Classic Disc Golf Championships 2014

In my opinion, regardless of weather, blue course is par 54 and white 55 with the 14th being the only par 4. Some are tough par 3s others quite short and easy.

Not my take on it, you're playing it down Paulo.
