    Disc Golf

    Anyone enjoy this sport as much as I do? Easy for all ages, anyone can participate in a round of disc golf. Played just like golf but with frisbees called "Discs". You throw off the tee and try and make it in the basket (instead of a hole) in as little strokes as possible. You have drivers, mid ranges, putters, etc.... Its a great activity to do by yourself or with a group.

    I am absolutely hooked!

    So any discers?

        Oh man, I'm gonna have to get back out and play a round now. I have't played in a while, used to be absolutely hooked. 3-4 rounds a day on average.

        Got any favorite discs? I'd be hard pressed to pick... Beast or Wraith for me. Both made by Innova. Really love my Discraft Predator as well, though....

            I still remember when I first started out. Took me about 4-6 months of playing to even figure out how to throw it straight. Gotta be perfectly straight across your chest with a good snap to get any kind of distance.

            I used to "raise" my arm somewhat near the end of my throw, like throwing uphill almost. As a result my disc would fade entirely too early due to fighting gravity.

            Played a course in West Virginia once. Absolutely insane playing on the side of a mountain. Lost 2 discs in the first 9 holes haha.

                Checkin in , I play a lil somnsomn. Im not competitive but I do know Speedy , the guy who runs the dghall of fame , and a few other semi-pros.

                I enjoy the walk with my dogs and the companionship of a round with old friends and family.

                That said, Ive given away as many discs in me quiver to newbies as I have in there currently. Its fun to help spread the game around.

                I went out to San Fran a couple years ago and played like 3 courses for my first ever experience. Played GGpark, a lil 9 holer in santa cruz and my favorite , Pinto Lake, down in watkinsville , I think? Reaally badass course. I have one very similar 3 miles from me thats got major elevation changes, heavily wooded fairways and very leggy. I took my brother out on it last weekend and its the hardest one hes ever played. He wont stop talking about it.

                Planning a vacation , Im always looking for new courses to play while Im there. Ive probably played in 7 different states and havent found a course I didnt like.

                Im rambling , sorry - but um yeah
                I love it more than regular golf!

                  I just got out to play for the first time in about a year, yesterday.

                  I play all holes as a par 3 (on any course, doesn't matter) and threw for a 58 (+4). I'll take that.

                  Almost skip-aced hole 1 too! Imagine that, an ace on your first throw after a 8-10 month hiatus. Still no aces yet, though.

                          I can throw 300+

                          Got a decent arm, just working on my finesse a little bit. Played a round today and finished up +2. Think I'm gonna head down to Georgia next month for a 3-day tourney.

                            I must of been absolutely blazed when I started this thread. Zero recollection!

                            Haven't been playing, got strung out again and of course stopped doing the things that brought me a sense of joy..

                            I'm on the straight and stoned again.. Approaching five months clean off of Heroin and Meth.

                            Played a few rounds and lost my disc game. I was shooting under at my local course. One day I swear shot a -9 on the front nine. Lately I've been bogie-ing every hole. I introduced my coworkers to the game though and we're all hooked. Anybody been playing lately?
