Head North to Black Falls on Saturday 

Friday, May 28, 2010  by John Borelli

Start your Memorial Day weekend off with a trip to Northern Vermont. Johnny Betts is hosting Black Falls V this Saturday in Montgomery, VT and there are still plenty of spots left.

Johnny says, "If you liked (the Sap Bucket at) Center Chains, then you will not be disappointed with the Black Falls courses."

Go to Black Falls. As the great Matt Dillion said in the Outsiders, "Let's do it for Johnny man. We'll do it for Johnny!"

Back-to-back aces at Pyramids league, sort of... 

Thursday, May 27, 2010  by John Borelli

Nice job, Jeff! Thanks for the news, Jason.

Here's one. Yesterday before Pyramids Monday league, whose ace pot is now at $234, and growing, with Silvers next Monday.

Jeff Chauvin aces Hole 5 with a straight shot KC Pro Aviar. Then he steps up to Hole 6, remembers to ask whether there were any other 1s, and proceeds to ace Hole 6 with the same disc.

Two shots in a row for two aces. I'm pretty sure at least here it's unprecedented.


Has anyone else witnessed, heard about, or thrown two or more aces in a row? Let us know! top Top > Comments   (7 comments)

There will be two winners of this drawing and those winners will each receive a 9 hole custom Mach III course.

Play for points in MA and NH this weekend 

Thursday, May 20, 2010  by John Borelli

There are two NEFA points events this weekend; Terrace Pines Open in Ossipee, NH on Saturday and Maple Hill 5 in Leicester, MA on Sunday.

Terrace Pines is a quirky, wooded, short course with lots of OB, while Maple Hill is a mix of long and short and home of the National Tour's Vibram Open in August.

Good luck!
