May 13, 2012 HAVE A PEEK AT REEDY CREEK
The Plantation Ruins at Winget DGC
Thomas McAllister Winget Park is located in the Steele Creek area of Charlotte.
There are the ruins of an old plantation house and a couple outbuildings which
inspired the course name, The Plantation Ruins. The course has a combination of
wooded and (a few) open holes, and is fairly short. DGA donated the Mach V
baskets for this course as sponsorship for the the 2012 Worlds.
This course sits close to an elementary school and you will walk past
a playground on the way from hole 14 to 15. The park features
soccer fields, horse shoe pits, walking paths, rest rooms and picnic shelters.
Designed and built by Sam Nicholson with lots of help from course director
Tom Usselman and others from the Charlotte Disc Golf community, this course is
for the beginner to intermediate player but is tight enough to be interesting
for advanced players as well.
Holes – 18
Targets – DGA Mach V
Tees – Concrete
Course Designer – Sam Nicholson

This Event Counts Toward Club Singles
Ladies and Gentlemen,
We will be pouring concrete tee pads at The Scrapyard in Idlewild Park Nov 11th starting at 8:00 AM. Stan will be directing along with Rob Kelly but WE NEED YOUR HELP TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN. If you have shovels, rakes, wheelbarrows, etc. bring them! If you don’t have tools please bring yourself, we will need all the help out there we can get. Work gloves will be a big help and wear clothes that you won’t mind getting a bit of concrete on. If you can’t make it in the morning we will still need your help to guard tee pads while they set and keep away the artists and dancers. Stan will be there until the park closes and you know how lonely he gets. So come out and help put the finishing touch on one of the many crown jewels of Charlotte disc golf!
THE CDGC ROCS! DISC GOLF RULES!
