In less than two weeks we’ll have over four hundred players from around the world playing at The Hills! We’re excited! We’re in the home stretch, manicuring and mowing, posting signs and painting OB’s. The course is now in it’s final layout for Am Worlds. We’ve still got a little work to do on 12,13 and 16 where the new power pole construction transformed those three holes. 12 is looking excellent, tucked into the woods now. 13 has a brand new fairway and 16 has finally been moved back to it’s original position. We’ll be adding mulch around that basket so it’s not all gravel. Baskets that we’re not using for worlds (1B, 4A, 13B and 16B) have been removed. Saturday July 12th The Coyotes will be out all day Saturday making a final push to get 12 and 13 done, then next week someone will likely be out working at the course every day until we kick this thing off. Just one more heads-up, the township will be mowing Monday July 22nd just before competition starts the following day. If you come out to practice, be patient and say hi to Joe and his helper – we couldn’t do it without them truly.
Holy Moly it’s July. This past week the Coyotes did some heavy course maintenance. Our Longest Day event went very well, big thanks to Nate Brosius and Jamie Lepley who stepped-up and helped an over-worked crew run the Concessions, Proshop and Tournament Central during the event – and the post event burgers Nate and Brandon cooked up were delicious! Now that we’ve had a day off, the work starts back up again tonight and continues every evening and weekend day until Am Worlds comes to town. We’ve got an updated layout for Am Worlds adding Hole 14 Blue tee (long). We’ve updated our website and YouTube Channel. Updates are in the works for the UDisc app and AmWorlds2019.com.
Everyone knows it’s nice to play a course that is well maintained, and as a club we’ve got an advantage with a great relationship with the Township Parks department. They do the bulk of the mowing and provide us with all the mulch and stone we can use. We mow the trickier slopes with push mowers and weed whack the edges and around all the baskets and tee box areas. We also paint OB lines and do a bunch of smaller jobs like pruning branches and firming up the OB ropes. Our regularly scheduled work days are after tag league on Saturday and during tags on Wednesday evening before each event. Pack members will likely be out Tuesday, Thursday and Friday before each event depending on weather. If you can lend a hand for a work day your discs become immune to bad tree kicks and OB lines*. Come on out and get yourself some course Karma! If you’re not a League member but enjoy the course and want to help us out please consider buying a Hole Sponsorship or Player/Sponsor Tag.

The next tournament is the Longest Day I-81 Series event on June 29th so we’ll have work days June 22nd and June 26th. Reach out to us on Facebook if you have questions.
