Douglas is shorter course in a very nice park. Not much schule on that course. If you get hot you can shoot double digits. I suck and shot -7 there last year. Lincoln is a very nice course and I like it. It's much harder than Douglas.

At least that way they wouldn't misspell the name of their tournament on the PDGA tour page and their own Web site. Good job, AO, on spelling it right here. :D

There are quite a few dueces at douglass, however the course isn't one of those dinky duece or die courses. There is quite a bit of elevation change at douglass, which makes the course pretty cool. Lincoln offers all kinds of shots. I believe there are two tees on all of the holes, and an extra special third tee for the pros on a handful of holes. Lincoln is really a very sweet course.

Spelling capitol with an o mean you're referring to the actual building (with the dome) That's how I remember learning that when I was a kid---dome--spell with an 'o'. When referring to the city, it's with an 'a'. For example---The capitol is on Locust Street in Des Moines, the capital of IA.

That being said, I guess one could argue that either spelling for the tournament is correct. I'd tend to lean towards capital since it's the Capital City Challenge.

capital--city of gov't
capitol--bldg. of gov't

Both parks are very nice. Douglas is shorter, but their are two different tee boxes. Lincoln and Douglas are two good 18-hole courses worth playing several times.

With Am entry fee, players get a shirt and a disc of their choice.

Come down, it's a good time, goofiness and all! And we upgraded Ams to a B-tier this year!
