Bah!....surveillance equipment and GPS locators are cooler than pouring more concrete. It's not about the money....it's about having fun catching a thief!

Tracking device and video is taking it a bit far... just increase the size of the concrete footer. The last commercial deck I built used 18 inch diam, at 24 inches deep... bout 5 bags of concrete and over 400lbs. That should do the trick. Bout $18 at current prices.

That's the ticket. Except if they move the baskets to different sleeves, the thieves might cut the locks.

It is a shame that Mt. Airy is such a threw-way(figured it sounded better for the sport than throughway) for so many people and the park is not able to be gated off at night like Idlewild, Banklick, Gulley etc... I was working at the Nati shop today and heard that we had lost a basket! R.I.P. I'm thinking I could call ADT and see if we can get our alarm system hooked up to all the baskets :P I will tell you that I am at she shop 30 hrs a week and see a patrol of the park about once the whole week. Forget the herb dealers and start chasing after our basket stealers!!!!!!! J-son The Nati Disc Golf

This is off the subject, but someone came into the shop lookin for a map of the course today. So when I got home tonight I decided to redo the one that is on here. I know that the course will be changed a bit but it didn't take me long so I figured what the heck. I don't know the distances on the new 5 and 6, but they should be within a 100 feet. :P If someone knows what they are I'm sure I can fix it. Feel free to use it to update one on here if you would like.

Here is a link to the map Mt. Airy Course Map Here

Funktopus: Most players play every hole as a par 3, hence par = 54 for the course.

J-Son: Props on the map.

All: Any update on the missing basket on #17?

As some others have stated,  we calculate course par as three shots per hole. It just makes things easier since tee signs get destroyed and ultimately it comes down to the basic principle of how many throws did it take to complete the course. That is why I recommend the Division section found on the information page for each course. (Some are missing but most have it.)

For Airy with par being 54, ( 3 per hole on 18 holes ) you take the cummulative shot total and use that as a clear cut way to compare yourself to others, for Mt Airy shooting less than 60 for Pro, 60 - 75 for Advanced, greater than 75 for Novice, this gives you a good idea of how you compare. Since Airy is considered tougher than a course like Harbin, where Pro shoots less than 54, Advance 54 - 68, Novice greater than 68... that is the best way to figure out where your game is at and gives you goals for improvement.

So if at Harbin you can shoot a score that would be considered in the Advanced division but at Airy you are shooting in the Novice level, that is probably because you have good distance but control shots may be lacking since Harbin is way more open than Airy on most holes.

Hope that made since.

No one has said anything about the Nati guys wanting to put in multiple pin placements on most holes. They will rearrange them making Airy a different course most times you play.

This interests me as my buddies and I play there at least once a week.

Thats because the alt pin placements have nothing to do with the Nati guys this was a club decision.
As far as when the alt pins go in and when they will be ready for play, should be soon.

When I saw the sign I thought it was the Nati folks. Either way I am looking foward to it. Are you guys going to let us know when your planning on putting them in? I'm sure some folks would like to help.

 I am planning on playing Mt. Airy tomorrow (Sat) afternoon for the first time. How busy is it typically at that time? I usually play Gully and often we have that course to ourselves.

It shouldn't be too busy I have never had a backup at Mt. Airy on non-tourney days. Monroe course challenge is tomorrow so it should be 'all to yourselves'. Have funn!

I've created a new map to Mt. Airy and updated the pictures to reflect the recent changes. Old map and pictures available under legacy page at bottom. Let me know if there are any discrepancies with page or map. I still have to renumber the holes on the web page

So were the holes just renumbered, or have the pins been moved? I think I will try to make it over there this weekend.

The numbers have been changed. Number 1 now starts in front of The Nati Pro Shop. However the baskets for #17 and #18 have been moved back a little further. No other holes have been touched as of now.

I think it is new 17 and 18.  I was out there recently and they had moved the basket a little on the hole that is behind the Nati Disc shop.  That is new 18

Another thing... with the multiple pin placements in mind, the Master locks on the pins will rust out with in a season or two. They are twice the price, but you might want to suggest getting the water proof Master locks. The rubberized casing and key hole cover really help on an exterior lock. Had one for 9 years now and zero problems. And they are a bit thicker and harder to cut the lock. The diamond blade on my concrete saw had serious trouble getting through one.
