Cleaning the Capital – Beaverbrook Disc Golf Park

April 22, 2013

The Ottawa Disc Golf Club will be participating in the Tim Hortons Cleaning the Capital, on Sunday April 28th, by cleaning up our disc golf course in Beaverbrook Park, Kanata.

Come out and demonstrate community pride by cleaning up our fairways, rough, and woods, “while enjoying the outdoors and ensuring that Ottawa stays clean, green, graffiti and litter-free.” (Cleaning the Capital)

Huge thanks to Andrew Kauffmann who organized this community building activity for the ODGC.

The clean-up will start up at 9 am.

The Mudslide at the Cove

April 4, 2013


The tournament directors of the Mud Slide at the Cove are crazy.

On April 14, 2013, they want you to play TWO rounds, in ONE day, at Alcove Disc Golf Course.

Situated in the most breathtaking disc golf environment you could imagine, the Stacie Sivyer designed Alcove Disc Golf Course will put your disc golf game to the test. Its holes command a full bag of tricks. The lines are awe-inspiring; greens are nasty; danger is abundant; and, the Orpheus like tonals can be heard singing across the topography. Awesome. There really is nothing like it.

And it might be the most demanding walk you’ll carry your bag on.

Two rounds. One day. A true player vs. course.

I take it back. They’re not crazy…you are; if you aren’t there.
