Hoping to make it over, I need to defend my "B"-Town title from last year.

I want to throw a huge shoutout and thanks to HOOTERS (Pat and Chris) for always stepping up and helping out by sponsoring Baton Rouge Tournaments. Thanks guys, it is very much appreciated and you guys are awesome.

Also, a big thanks to BREC for allowing us to put on the tournaments and helping when we need help.

FLANACHER IS LOOKING GREAT. Looking forward to getting out there and enjoying a great day of Disc Golf with all of our Brothers and Sisters. Even though my shoulder is hurting (haha that's for you Brooks) it should be fun.

I even hear a long lost brother who is also a new PawPaw MAY make an appearance, as well as a couple others from the EastSide Mecca of Disc Golf.

What Chad said...

Flanacher is looking fabulous at the moment. BREC has done a lot of work getting the course ready. They have been out there nearly every day this week doing something. Stephen Harrison did a lot of work on the course yesterday as well. Tees will be flagged and painted and blown towards the end of next week. It is one of the nicest venues for disc golf you will fine. Don't miss the chance to play it at its best!

Did y'all ever fix Hole 9 out there? Flanacher would be so much better if that hole was fixed. Flanacher is underrated...it is a great place to play but I think its reputation is knocked down a couple pegs because a couple holes need tweaking.
Re: 2014 Z-Town Throwdown

No holes have changed, Mike. Do you mean hole 11? Hole 11 is the terrible one, in my opinion. At least 9 has a legitimate fairway although it is a par 4 with a 120 foot tee shot to a 90 degree angle. Those are definitely the 2 worst holes out there. The good thing is that there is that the majority of the holes are awesome and there are at least 18 decent ones.

Not a fan of 11 either, or 3, but 9's right-angle fairway is a shame. Is there some red tape from BREC preventing changing any holes?

Not particularly. It just hasn't been done. We plan on doing some improvements on the course during the summer months though so perhaps that could be something we discuss.

Looking forward to this tournament as well. From the looks of the course map it seems to favor the "flick".
Re: 2014 Z-Town Throwdown
May 15, 2014 04:37PM
Will this be played as a par 70 or par 63 for am division?

It's definitely a very balanced course compared to most and might even lean towards the side of being left hand backhand friendly.

It doesn't matter. Your total score is the same regardless of what par in considered. Although, every hole is definitely par 3 from the orange/am tees (which intermediate am plays both rounds) so par would definitely be 63. From the long tees par could be called anywhere from 68-73.

Casey,

Make it hole 3 tee box to hole 4 basket (par 5). Make it hole 11 tee box to hole 12 basket (par 4). Then hole 9 is the only one maybe not a real disc golf hole, and you get 19 holes of grade a.

I am in for Adv Masters.
Re: 2014 Z-Town Throwdown

Nick Robichaux with his first pro win beating myself, John Fowler, Josh Patin, and others.

Thunder Schultz won advanced and beat all the pros by 7 strokes.

Will Timmons in Masters. Ronnie Adams in Grandmasters.

Great shooting today Nick, and Thunder. Thunder went beast mode on the beast today! Hope he keeps it up, because if he does, he will become one of the best in the sport.

Great Tournament! First time I played Flanacher I played the pro tees not knowing they had orange tees and I hated that course! But playing the orange tees it's a totally different course and I love it! The course was in great shape and I had fun. Congrats Nick on the MPO win well deserved! Hope you win many many more. Congrats Shawn Johnson 1st Advanced Masters and thanks for letting me buy some disc with some of your winnings, that was really nice of you. Can't wait till next Tournament.

BR, thanks for having us over to play. Fun cards both rounds.

Temporary hole 9 long tees yielded an excellent golf hole. I'll tell you like Les, "It was a quality hole and I enjoyed the opportunity to play it."

Thanks to everyone who came over, we had a great turn out and fantastic weather.

Congrats to all the Winners, and the Island hole will do some growing before it is put down again

Also thanks for all the players being litter free, park looks great

See Y'all soon

Jacques, the temp hole on # 9 was a variation of a hole Mike Kernan (Thanks) referred me to last year,
