I attended the Datus Golf Invitational today with one of my neighborhood youth, (Saturday, April 11th) at Eagle Mountain. Warm day but windy. Made for an extra challenge. As usual, it was a lot of fun. The courses were about the same as usual, (They don't change much from year to year). Not a complaint, just an observation. They had setup (3) 18 hole courses. We had time to shoot 2, beginning at 1:30 pm and ending at 6:15 pm. If you have never tried archery golf, I would recommend that you give it a whirl. Lots of fun. Kudos to Datus for another successful and fun shoot.

I came out yesterday afternoon and ran around the courses. Couldn't have been a more perfect day of shooting. There's just something about slinging arrows for the pure fun of it as apposed to stressing about scores !!!

Next up is the UBA State Archery Golf shoot in two weeks out there at Eagle Mtn on the 25th and 26th. If you've never shot archery gold, you don't know what you're missing.

Cheers,
Pete

ok so this may be a newb question, but when you say golf shoot is that just another word for walking a 3d range or is there something I'm missing?

No it is more like a golf course. The "holes" are like golf at 150-500 yards long with a target at the "cup". Least amount of shots wins.

Come up to the Hardware Shoot this weekend and try it out.

Datus uses a 2.5 inch round x 6 inch tall piece of fire hose. You have to knock it over. The goal is to nock it over in one shot.

Middlefork... with the snow storm we had today, are you expecting snow up at Hardware Ranch on Saturday, or just a lot of mud. I haven't been able to come up for a couple of years, but when I have, it has been a lot of fun. Not sure if I will be able to make it this Saturday or not.

I would guess there to be a little mud. But the forcast says it should be warm enough to melt any snow. The 3D courses are all west facing and the golf is in the fields. As a disclaimer I am not associated with this shoot just a participant.

Thanks for the info. The recent storm has created havoc in my neighborhood and I have committed to help with a downed tree at one location and fence at another. Kill some targets for me.
