The freedom to jump from hole to hole, unlike regular golf where you get pushed to hurry up, or are held back by the players in front of you, you can skip, chill or go to a whole 'nother hole. Oh yeah, for some reason beer tastes so much better when you're out there, don't know why, don't care, just accept it!
The solitude on the days when not too many people are playing. The wildlife such as the deer and the turkey. Yimmi, a boxer that belongs to one of the local dog walkers, always happy to see you. The shade of the pecan grove at the local course.
Improving and getting better has been my favorite thing.
I tell people who say they suck that they are going to have the most fun improving!
Keeping score and bettering your score is a big thrill.
To score par on any course is exciting.
To finally break par at a course you have played often is very rewarding!
I approach it like this. Under par-I win, Par-Tie, Over par, The course wins.
Now, can you beat the course or is the course still winning.
There are ways to learn a course and beat it.
If one hole is giving you problems, practice that hole over and over until it is your favorite hole.
If one putt is giving your trouble, work on that putt until it is your strongest.
Learn your discs in an open field and apply what you learn to the course!
I think mini short stories can be written on this topic. I'm sure everyone has touched on just about everything in this post thus far. Too be simple, I just love being outside whether it be windy, rainy, snowy, sunny, etc. and just playing with my friends. I love the way a disc will fly when you throw that line and thread the needle and not hit any trees. The sound of chains on a hole in one and everyone else cheering for you when they see it happen. So many other things....sigh
