Why the Martin DIsc Golf Club exists

This morning (25 Nov 2013) I went out to Harrison Road to play a couple rounds. As usual, I picked up someones beverage container, a sunflower package, and a snack wrapper. The main reason  the club formed is that we want the Harrison Road course to be a nice place, picking up trash helps the course look nicer. Taking care of our course, makes it more likely others will respect our course. Well last night someone really disrespected our course by dumping trash on it, 6 large trash bags, 2 armfuls, and 1 hour later the beverage containers, cigarette butts, tampon delivery devices, bottle caps, and general household refuse were picked up. I left the food garbage on site that I expect will get eaten: 2 turkey carcasses, a ham, rice krispies treats, corn bread, etc.There was a cable bill and an Amazon shipping label in all this mess and I gave this information to the Martin Police. Hopefully, we won’t have trashing our course become a regular thing and we can keep our course a pleasant place to play a round of disc golf.

ALSO – Charlie Jahr, as usual, was part of this adventure. If you really want to know why this club exists you need look no further than Charlie. Thank you Charlie for being there.

  1. DG courses are often laid out on poor quality municipal land holdings. Mh home course was installed on the old auto wrecking yard, about a mile away from county lockup. Last year someone who was released left all their paperwork (copy of judgement, terms of release, and a restraining order) piled up neatly under a rock on hole 9. We try to pick up a lot, but that stuff was left out for a few weeks just to be sure…
