New course record!

OK, it might be silly to call it a course record when only two complete games have been played here. But the fact is Solo shot a 65 on Sunday January 25th, 2009. He and Isaac drove down from Austin to play a round with my dad and me. I tried to give them a good game, but my game fell apart on the last few holes and Solo took it running away. Here's the scorecard: Scorecard25Jan2009.pdf

Solo and Isaac really seemed to enjoy the course, and I'm pretty sure their scores will be better next time. Solo writes up local courses on his website at DiscGolfEmpire, complete with high quality photos and videos. He also organizes 'challenges,' a competition where he gets people together to play a round and videos the whole thing to post on his site. We might be doing a challenge soon at Sand Hill, so stay tuned.

Too dang lazy!

That's right, I'll admit it. I'm too dang lazy to update my web site at SandHillDiscGolf.com!

I try to keep up, but we're always doing something to improve the disc golf course. And I'm not exactly an html wiz. Plus I stay pretty darn busy in my day job and all. Blogging's easy, though, so I've decided to use this space to keep you up to date.

So here's the latest news: we played our first official 18-hole game on January 2nd, 2009! Of course we've played 18 holes before, but usually by repeating some of them. Matt, Dad, and I played the entire course while the kids goofed off at the cabin. Hole 17 is not finished yet -- still some saplings in the fairway, and it needs to be widened -- but we played it anyway. I took the round with a 74 -- yes you read that right, a 74! It's a tough course, and for now at least the official course record (from the pro tees) is 20-over par! I bet you can't beat it.

Directions

Before driving out, be sure to contact us to make sure the course is open.  No one is allowed to play the course when we are not there.

Important driving info: The road to our land is rough, so we recommend a high-clearance vehicle (but see this note about other vehicles). The sandy roads are actually worse when very dry than when wet. When driving through deep sand areas, try to keep moving, and whatever you do, do not allow your wheels to spin. Please respect other drivers; this is a private road and you could be on their land.

If you are coming from San Antonio, New Braunfels, San Marcos, or points west, use these directions,
