in 2000 we received a brochure about the 'Het Rijnsche Park' "leve het groen", moving from IJsselstein to Utrecht and at that time the "putting winnaars" was then, in its 4 year, where every November 15-20 people, with no large planning, played a simple 'putting game' with 3, 7 and 14 meters, making 3 or "putts'.***
In 2003 , now living in the Parkwijk, where we have 4 parks!, a proposal was received by the City of Utrecht to make a disc golf 'parcours' but then not like 9 in Nieuwegein and the 6 in IJsselstein, but a full 36 course ( 2 x 18) and host a European Championship and with some cooperation from other clubs, namely Rotterdam, Amsterdam and the Dunantpark in Eindhoven we can even come up with a pretty good proposal for a world championships. ( I ventured and played in the 2005 PDGA Worlds in the USA and saw 4 full 18 hole courses in use). This map was from that time
We were told, first, we needed to request a small initiatief to show the 'draagvlak' ( see we can have a large group of 'flying practicioners' ) by playing regularly in the Prinses AmaliaPark once or twice a month, which turned out to every week, winters, too.
We received a grant producing 1500 brochures ( 1000 then + 500 more), create the 'ART' ( Accuracy Range Target) , six pole-holes were spread around in the P.A. & Voorn Park(s),and discs with the 23 april hotstamp with zephyrs, aviars and Goaltimate discs.
We are in the 2nd year of a May Workshop w flying disc(s) and hope PDGA players ( we call them the 'Dulcimer Disc Golf Club' and continue to encourage people to come to the park ( Wednesday evenings) and try their first "triple fake" or establish their personal 'timed' record for throwing a disc in the air and catching it with one hand ( see the 2nd picture in this message)
*** ah yea, this November will be our 15th year with the Putting Winnaars, with over 140 peoples name on the list with this simple game or two
. In holland they count every 5 years as a 'lustrum' so its our 3rd!
