Just a quick note to let everyone know what is going on in Jonesboro, AR. As of yesterday, Feb 18, 37 Brand New Pro-28 baskets arrived in Jonesboro and are set to go in the ground over the next two weeks!
Disc Side of Heaven is set on more than 70 acres in the rolling hills of Crowley's Ridge and will be a disc golf only complex. To learn more: www.discsideofheaven.com or search on Facebook and 'like' the page or follow on twitter at DiscSideOHeaven. The website is still a work in progress and is scheduled for an update this week. Please keep going back to it as it will change very soon.
Right now the goal is to open to the public on March 23 and have a Grand Opening Tournament on June 29 & 30. The Tournament will be a fundraiser for the complex so it will not show up here as a SNDG event.
I have been working on this project for over two years and it is starting to all come together. If anyone has any questions ask here or shoot me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
It will be either 5 or 6 bucks per 18 holes and either 9 or 10 for all day play. Still factoring in all the taxes and fees I have to pay. There will also be memberships available, they will fall between $50 and $65. Kids 12 and under will always be free.
Here is just one of the shots from the Rec Course. Many more available on the Facebook page.
Memberships will last from time of purchase until the next Spring Break (Arkansas State University). i.e. If you buy a membership in May, it will be good until March of 2014. Right now the plan is to not open every weekend between Thanksgiving and Spring Break, just on the weekends (or days) during that time when the weather is decent.
Website was updated this evening with a several new pictures as well as maps of both courses. DiscSideofHeaven.com
100 Opening discs were waiting for me today. Each reads "I was one of the first to play in Heaven" They will be available in the clubhouse starting opening day, March 23 at 10:00 am. For more information 'like' the FB page. Just search for Disc Side of Heaven on FB.

Wow, a LOT of good this week, but the one thing we can't control is the weather.
