The disc golf course at Hiestand is now closed for the winter. Here is the text of an email we received today from the Parks Dept:
"Due to the “relatively speaking” warm rain forecasted over the next 36 hours followed by the quick and deep drop in temps we are now out pulling the baskets at Hiestand Golf Course due to concerns over turf conditions and our ability to remove the baskets once that rainwater freezes them in as the temps plummet. We will return the baskets as soon as ground conditions are favorable in the spring. Thanks to all for a great 2013 Disc Golf season."
They also said that they cleared leaves from, aerated, seeded, and fertilized a substantial portion of the course. So, hopefully, this is a good step towards improved turf conditions.
Mad City Disc Golf is excited to announce that the 22nd Mad City Open will be held August 23rd - 24th, 2014. Once again, the event will be a PDGA Sanctioned A-Tier (SuperTour) event, which means PDGA membership will be required to play. Get your membership early and enjoy a great year of tournament action.
This year, MCDG will be running the event. Thanks to Mike Batka for his awesome work over the last few years, and for helping to make this a smooth transition. We don't plan any major changes, but may add a new wrinkle or two in order to make this tournament even better! We'll provide more information as we move along, so save the date, and stay tuned!
