Team Challenge Tournament, DR Disc Golf ties for 3rd

Last Sunday, six golfers representing the Orrington DGC drove down to Scarborough to play in the first Team Challenge. This once-a-month tournament will take place at a different course each time, and will be played in a doubles format.

Pleasant Hill disc golf course hosted the first in this Team Challenge series. Each team brought 6 players to create their own 3 doubles teams. Teams could be shuffled around after the first round if they wanted.

Results are below, however I don’t know which courses each of the teams were from in most cases. They created team names, but what course they were from was not posted with the results. The team strokes total is listed after the team name.

1st: Grizzlies 280 $252

2nd: Acker's Red 296 $84

T3rd: D.R. Disc Golf 300

T3rd: Pleasant Hill 1 300

5th: Acker's Dirty Bird's 306

6th: Acker's Black 308

7th: Pleasant Hill 2 322

8th: Black Bears 333

The D.R. Disc golf team consisted of: Ryan Enman, Joe Baker, Matt Enman, Noah Fecteau, Brian Skirman and Matt Kinney. There will be alternates playing at different tournaments depending on golfer availability.

The next event will be held Sunday, December 13 at the Orrington DGC, with a 9am start. Orrington’s Sunday Doubles league will still be held with a 10am tee off time on that day.

More information about the Team Challenge tournament can be found on the Maine Disc Golfer’s website.

The overnight rain was heavy enough that the creeks were overflowing and a couple of the bridges were water-level. The bridge on fairway of hole two was underwater and was removed. It will be replaced once the levels drop back down. There was a lot of water.

Hello and welcome Philadelphia-area disc golfers and welcome to the Orrington Disc Golf course. Hope to see you soon, ayuh. You can get he-yah from they-ah.

Caribou downs Orrington in North vs South Tourney

The North vs South Civil War tournament happened today at the Orrington Disc Golf course. Sixteen disc golfers made their way down to Orrington from their course in Caribou to take on Orrington’s golfers in a three-round, match-play event. In the end, the North won in big fashion, turning on the crushinator and beating Orrington on their home course by a score of 82 1/2 to 61 1/2.

Each team had 8 doubles teams for the first round, 8 doubles teams for the second round, and 16 golfers for the third round singles match play.

First round was doubles, best shot match play. Six points were available to each pairing: 2 points for the front 9 holes, 2 points for the back 9, and 2 points for overall.

Caribou: 27 points

Orrington: 21 points

Second round was doubles, best disc match play. Six points were again available to each pairing.

Caribou: 32

Orrington: 16

Third round was singles, match play. Three points were available to each pairing: 1 point for the front 9, 1 point for the back 9, and 1 point for the overall.

Caribou: 23 1/2

Orrington: 24 1/2

Golfers for Caribou included: George Michaels, Mike Plourde, Derek Ouellette, Rob Aquino, Virgil Rideout, Brian ‘Scurvy’ Skirman, Corey Vincent, Tom ‘Binks’ Albert, Rob Udnerwood, Jay Michaud, Matt Kinney, Nate Harris, Sheldon Hyde, Matt Enman, Marshall Hersey and Chris Fuller.

Golfers for Orrington included: Ryan Enman, Mike Piirainen, Josh Stoll, Justin Gott, Lucas Butler, Ryan Curran, John Hodkiewicz, John Blakley, Joe the Mason, Mike Laterreur, Terry Pinkham, Ryan Andrews, Brian Enman, Gabe Geal, Dustin Perkins, Joe Baker, John Parcak and Scott Krieski.

There were also four closest-to-the-pin holes. Those winners were:

Hole #1 Matt Enman (two lobsters, each about 2.5 lbs)

Hole #5 Lucas Butler (same as above)

Hole #13 Matt Enman (Discraft Buzz w/ HukLab stamp)

Hole #16 Derek Ouellette (Jamaican sandals and hat, and 6-pack Red Stripe) HOORAY, BEER!

Third round optional $2 ace pot hooked 25 golfers with the condition that if nobody hit an ace during the round, the money would be given away with a CTP on hole 1 for all who put down their money. No ace was hit, and in the CTP round Joe 'the' Mason was closest and scored the $50.

Thanks to the Caribou disc golfers for making the 2.5 hour trip down to our section of Maine to play in the tournament. We loved having you but didn’t love seeing you take the trophy. We’ll be up next year to take it back!

Also thanks to the people who donated for the CTP prizes: Mike Piirainen for the lobstahs, Rob Underwood for the disc, and John Hodkiewicz for the Jamaican themed sandals/hat/beer combo.

Joe Baker lived up to his last name (sort of) and had burgers and hot dogs working on the grill between the second and third rounds. If you had a chance to fill up on grilled meat, thank Joe (and the Enman’s for providing it).

Wicked big thanks to Dave and Ryan Enman. Without their hard work and dedication to spreading the word of disc golf, the course in Orrington wouldn’t exist, and I guess to a larger extent, the course in Caribou wouldn’t either.

We’re really glad they do.
