The General is Ready!

Over the past two months a steady group of 20-30 dedicated golfers have been viciously chomping through the previously untouched woods adjacent to our original course "The Hill". Over the last two weeks Ken Gary and Josh St. Denis (along with a few helpers) have been quietly digging holes, installing sleeves, and as of yesterday 18 shiny new Discatchers are installed!

 The result of everyone's hard work is a fantastic 18 hole disc golf course with decent natural tee pads. Devens DGC is proud to be the only disc golf course on the mainland of Massachusetts to have two separate courses on the same land.

 Devens has made a name for itself for having probably the largest and most dedicated player base in our area. I'm proud to call Devens my home course and feel privileged to play with you guys and gals!

 Some upcoming events on "The General":

 Josh is running an informal doubles match on Thanksgiving morning @ 8am

 On Sunday December 1st we will be running an informal singles event, who can set the initial course record? There is no entry fee and you can play as many rounds as you want during the day. Form your own group of 3/4 and start on hole 1. Have someone post your groups names/scores on Facebook after each round ends and I'll tally at the end of the day.

 We will have another work weekend on December 7th and 8th in which will we do lots of pruning, some stairs, dragging of brush piles and other touch up work. Please come out if you can! Tee pads construction and installation will begin in the spring.

 Come out and enjoy the new course!
