Holes 12 and 15 Are Open For Business

What a day we had Sunday! Brian, Dave, and I worked like madmen and finished hole 15 and hole 12. We had a great system going with Dave and I cutting and Brian hauling the pieces away. It was a thing of beauty.

On 15, which is a mostly-straight shot down an old road, Dave suggested we create an alternate flightpath along the right "breakdown lane" and man, did it improve the hole. So now there are two ways to go at the pin: either straight or to the right around a row of trees and over a large boulder. We're all about choices here at Devens Disc Golf.

Hole 12 started off as nothing but a hill full of trees, shrubs, and undergrowth. After about an hour or so, we had carved out a left-curving downhill fairway bordered by trees. There's still a bit of work to be done to define it better and we may have to cut down one or two bigger trees, but for now it is playable. This hole will probably have a mando on it so that people don't take the straight route, but we'll see.

After about four hours of work, we called it quits and Dave and I played a round while Brian went home to get his son Ryan. They later met us out on hole 13, which is Ryan's favorite hole to practice his putting!

I don't know about the other guys, but I am dog-tired this morning.
