San Antonio Disc Club Members improve McClain Disc Golf Course

Posted by Wallace on 3/7/2011 to Disc Golf Courses
A sunny Sunday morning in February brought a baker's dozen club members from the San Antonio Disc Club to the McClain Disc Golf Course.  However these guys (and gals) set aside their morning to work at the course before enjoying it with their discs.  Hosted by Mr. Fly Ink, Dave Wimer, the crews set out to pick up trash on the course as well as to prepare select holes for upcoming additions.  Highlights from their efforts include new tee placements on hole 7, 13 and 18, and new pin placements on 8, 16, and 17.  For those not familiar with this course, it is the premier course in San Antonio and is home to many briars, brambles and other blood thirsty off-the-fairway obstacles.  These were especially fun to remove.  Glad I wore jeans! 
The day was not solely about the work.  Where there is a basket, there will be discin.  The crew finished the beautification and renovations by noon and were flipping for partners with a $5 buy in.   Here are some action shots from the guys.

And last but not least,  Raul, the king of the thumbers (and tomahawks) watches his Elite-Z Flick sail high above the trees crashing down inside the 10m circle nearly 300' away

A few hours of manual labor, time spent making the course better (and more challenging), friendships starting among club members new and old, and a tight random draw doubles match (Yeah Wimer and I took it :-o ) made this San Antonio Disc Club workday a success.  The Alamo Disc Series heats up again April 16 in Boerne at the Boerne City Lake Disc Golf Course for The Hill Country Throwdown.  Sign up at http://www.discgolfstation.com/2011-Hill-Country-Throwdown-Registration_p_3350.html and bring your skills. 
In closing, your local club NEEDS you!  Get out there and spend a morning...or day...improving the course you love to play.  Most parks and rec departments don't provide adequate course maintenance to keep the course at your desired standard of excellence.  Giving a little of your time makes a difference for everybody in your area.  Your local disc golf community thanks you!
