New course in MA looking for basket sponsors

Hyland Orchard and Brewery in Sturbridge, MA (website) has jumped on board and decided it is time to add a disc golf course to its list of things to do. With over 100 acres of unused land and a brewery, it is the perfect place to install a new course. The difference in terrain and elevation changes make it an interesting place to play.

The course is going through some changes to improve the holes and layout. Last year's tournament was played on a course that was two months old and just a temporary layout. We had our sights on a bigger and better layout for a permanent course and this year we get to do just that. Holes have already begun to change. The course length will be close to Maple Hill Blues when it is all done and will have short tees for all to enjoy.

This course needs some help to get it in the ground, however. I have come up with a no-brainer plan to get this course up and running as quickly as possible. With the help of you generous New England disc golfers in NEFAland, Hyland will have the best of everything.

We are looking for basket and tee box sign sponsors. So many people have jumped on board already but we need more. I am offering lifetime memberships for up to five people who donate $350 toward a Chainstar basket. Their names will forever be assigned to that basket. That is only $70 per person.

Lifetime memberships will run $350 and one year membership will start at $30 and may grow as the course does. A $50 tee box sign sponsor will you get a 5 year membership. Businesses and corporate sponsors are welcome also.

With five baskets payed for and nine more potential sponsors with checks on the way, we just need a few more to get this order in. Check out our discussion thread for a current list of sponsors. Help grow the sport and a new course, and get a deal on a lifetime membership before it is to late. Email me for more information.

Last year's PMC Doubles tournament and charity auction was a blast and this year will be bigger and better with a new layout and more prizes.
