More than 240 disc golfers battled the Charlotte summer and eight top-notch courses June 25-26 at the 2nd Charlotte Amateur Championship. A year from now these same Charlotte Disc Golf Club courses will be testing the best in the world – many of whom will surely be local players.
Charlotte resident Brad Ramsey (-19) had no problem navigating the advanced men’s courses of Renaissance, Eastway, Nevin, and Hornet’s Nest parks. Ramsey, who finished behind another local Paul Priest at the Carolina Clash, ended up beating second place Priest by two strokes. Also in the hunt were Michael Baranowski (-13) and Will Taylor (-10). Ramsey said he was right at home with each round’s courses. He even skip aced no. 3 during the final round at Hornet’s Nest. “I play those courses a lot. They definitely are a regular stomping ground for me … It was just like playing another round of golf,” said Ramsey, who lives near Renaissance Park. After several near misses at North Carolina tournaments, he said he was happy to finally put together an entire weekend of good golf. Doing it in your own backyard certainly was sweet for Ramsey. “I don’t think it’s quite sunk in yet. I think it will, though,” he said with a big smile.
In advanced women, Stephanie Miller, of Carrboro, N.C., took home the trophy after beating local Casey Schoonover by four strokes. She held on after having the lead after Saturday.
Other division winners include:
Advanced masters: John Rochester, of Charlotte.
Advanced grandmasters: Mark Beasley, of Charlotte.
Intermediate men: 13-year-old Aaron Doyle, of North Augusta, S.C.
Intermediate women: Amber Snow, of Chattanooga, Tenn.
Recreational: Brian Starnes, of Cornelius, N.C.
Junior Boys: Jonathan Pfeiffer, of Charlotte.

The course has a beautiful forest with slight elevation changes and lots of trees. Water really comes into play on 1 hole. The holes aren’t too long but are very wooded and technical, forcing accuracy.
The Scrapyard is named after the fundraising efforts of the Charlotte Disc Golf Club President Ralph Vickers. Funds for this course were raised from donations of scrap metal. Recycling cans, lawn mowers, scrap metal, etc. to make the course a reality.
Directions: Located on the East side of Charlotte and is easily gotten to by 485. Take 485 to Idlewild Road, West on Idlewild for about 5 miles. Park is on the Left. Drive up and around to the ball fields. Hole 1 is to the left of that parking lot halfway to the playground and plays around the back of the far left ball field

This park is named for Officer Robert L. Smith, a Charlotte police officer slain in the line of duty. Officer Smith was shot and killed January 15, 1987 while responding to a call of someone shooting into a condominium complex at Spyglass Place in the Pawtuckett Community, part of the old Adam-3 District.
The course has lots of elevation and lots of fast greens. Water comes into play on 8 holes. Beautiful hardwood forest and two rock greens to keep it fun. Bring plenty to drink, it is a work out and worth the effort.
