    Default the Disc Golf thread

    i don't know if anyone else here even plays besides AWIK and i, but WTH-- we've got a thread for every other fringe sport, why not? anyone ever play, or have any interest in playing?


    i freakin' love it, for whatever reason. . . there's just something almost meditative about it, it's so relaxing. . . i've actually never played real golf before, and i'm definitely interested, but frisbee golf does have some advantages. . . one of the biggest is that it's free to play most places, and you never have to reserve a tee time-- also, the starting equipment costs about fifty bucks total, and there's no dress code. . . in fact, most disc golf courses are so informal that you can bring your own beer with you. . . it's extremely laid back. . . good times!

We got to have a solid system in place for when we do go after whatever guy it may be, a young guy or a trade or whatnot.”

    I used to play years ago. I've been thinking about starting back up again. All the courses here are up in the mountains. Hiking, the woods, a friendly but competitive game with friends.....it's good times.

    We call it folf up here though.

    I played a few times, back in the day. They used to have a course at CSU (maybe they still do, IDK). But, I haven't seen a course since I left CO (and this was many years ago).

    I call it "stoner golfing" because in all 3 courses they have here in Madison, it seems that more people are sneaking into the woods to smoke pot than playing.

    Just played a round yesterday down in the Black Forest!! I love that course....mountian type course without the drive...hehehe.

    I've been playing since '98 and have loved it since that first time!! Own over 100 discs and a few bags.......and a pair of fishing waders so I can "swamp" for discs in the water.

    If any of ya'll want to throw a round, give me a hollar and I'll be there.

    sweet. . . .



    how many discs do you usually carry in your bag?

    do you have a couple of drivers that you use most of the time, or do you change up a lot from shot to shot?

    Yeah for those "trendy" types it is Frolf......but for us diehards, it Disc Golf because you are playing golf with a DISC not a FRISBEE, which are different....

    Dog, I carry 13 drivers and midranges (mostly drivers) and 1 putter. Probably like 10-11 drivers, 2-3 mid's and my 1 putter. I typically use my Viking (just like these for some reason) for most drives but all the others are for certian holes and shots that I want on those holes, being that each disc has it's own unique flying pattern. I only use one putter just so I can always know what that disc is going to do while putting.


    I'm gonna hit up a course or two this afternoon after work and maybe do a little "swamping" after I'm finished.


    PEACE!!!

    seinfeld ain't the boss of me. . . .


    i'm gonna keep calling it disc golf, or frisbee golf (no offense AWIK ), the way i always have. . .

    PEACE!!!
    cool, sounds fairly similar to what i usually carry. . . i'm the same way with my putter, i use my aviar A+P for 100% of my putts, as well as short approach shots. . . i lost my roc a while back and haven't been able to find another one around here, but i just ordered a pair of 'em-- once i get those i'll probably go back to using it for almost all of my approaches. . . i also ordered a couple of fairway drivers (champion eagle and star TL). . . obviously, i use mostly innova. . .

    i just bought a few discs over the weekend, and got to throw a few of them tonight. . . i think i may have found a new favorite distance driver, a 167 gram champion beast. . . i do like the vikings also, i've got three of those. . .

    PEACE!!!

    i had a good game today. . . played 28 holes, and hit par for the first time-- no big accomplishment to an experienced disc golfer like yourself, but i was pretty happy about it. . . this is a really easy course, but i'll take what i can get. . .


    if i have time and the weather stays nice, i think i might try a new course thursday-- the great blue herron DCG . . . . i've also got an eye on a place that's built on a ball golf course that went out of business-- it would be sweet to play some disc golf out on those manicured fairways!

    Heading out to Fort Morgan to play the course out there tomorrow. Can't wait since it's been over a year since I played there and the last time it was a drizzle/rain round!! Hopefully this time will be sunny skies and hot weather!!!
