Waterlooooo!

We don't generally play tournaments

Waterloo is different

Waterloo is as much about the people as about the competition

At 33 1/3 years, Waterloo is also the oldest tournament in Texas

Waterloo park is scheduled to close soon. they're building a tunnel to help with flooding on lower Waller creek. they want to make the area downstream from here like the riverwalk in San Antonio. It might work.

But in the meantime, this may very well be the last year that the Waterloo tournament can be held in Waterloo park. We need a new location for a couple or three years. Waterloo will go on. But nobody knows where, just yet

New web site, same disc golf action

So, as of yesterday the website was officially transferred to the new blog-type thingy. Yeah!

SandHillDiscGolf.com's new home

Hey y'all,

this is the new web presence for Sand Hill Disc Golf. The old website was lame, and I'm tired of f'ing with html and paying for frickin webhosting. So this it it! This stinking blog. What do you expect for free?

Sand Hill is a private disc golf course about an hour south of Austin (past Lockhart) near Whizzerville Texas! Whizzerville is the old name of a sleepy little town called McMahan Texas. I like the old name better.

If you want to play the course, you'll want to bring your A-game. And you need to contact us before making the drive out.

this blog type thing is a work in progress, so please bear with me.

Later,
DS

Birthdays and camping at sand hill

No, not our birthdays -- discgolfers' birthdays!

Rich celebrated his birthday at Sand Hill last month by inviting a bunch of discgolfers to camp and play several rounds of doubles over 2+ days. Lucky for me they had an odd number of people, so I joined them to even it out and played all 3 rounds. At one point we had six doubles teams playing in one huge group, and overall we had perhaps 18 or 20 players. We had some close games too. Chris and his partner (was it Tony?) set a new doubles course record with a 54 on Saturday, then Eric and Chip tied the record on Sunday. We even played some night golf with flashers Solo brought, and Chip and I got a 4 on hole 16 by discovering a previously unknown clearing in the woods (never saw it during the day!). Only a few people have played hole 16 in 4.

A couple of weeks later, Charles celebrated his birthday at Sand Hill. You guessed it -- disc golf and camping! It's been great weather for camping, and with all the rain this winter we have been allowing the campers to have big ground fires. We've been under burn bans for most of the 5 years we have owned this land, so we won't always be able to allow ground fires, but we do have some chimineas for when it dries out again.

Good times!

Winter is the best time for camping. In fact, I'm starting to feel the urge again...

Nothing happening at sand hill

Just a quick update to say there's absolutely nothing happening at sand hill. Just in case you thought this thing was broken.

We have been working on the cedar fence surrounding the parking area. And we're breaking in a couple of new camp sites this weekend. Getting ready to run a new water line so we'll have taps at the entrance and hole 10. But other than that, there's nothing happening.
