The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

On my course there is a spot after hole 10 where you cross a road and there is a stop sign near it. A lot of locals play this rule for fun. Hit the sign from the bush before you cross the road and you can drop a stroke. You get three tries and can only drop a total of one stroke (so people can drop more than one).

On a friends course there is a made up 22nd hole using the practice basket and teeing off close the end of the last hole. When looking at it you would be surprised at how much it is like an actual hole and not a practice spot as most practice baskets are out in the open next to a board or parking lot.

Any other fun ones?

Riverside Park in Grand Rapids, MI has a unofficial 19th hole that all the locals know and use. This hole primarily exists as a back-up hole in case one of the many other water holes is flooded or if a player doesn't want to take the risk shot offered on "Goose Poop Peninsula." For all those who don't know where the 19th hole is, it starts at the fire hydrant behind basket 18 and plays to basket 17.
I've blogged about it before, but I'm all about the object golf! My favorite places are parks where they have picnic tables that are sufficiently spaced amonst the trees. And if you manage to land on the table, that stroke doesn't count!
At the course in Plano, TX, we would have a side bet on throwing between the slats of a park sign you pass between holes.
I like this idea, but I think I'd only get away with doing this during a random fun tourney or just to mess around. We have a pretty serious bunch of guys who are always down for bag tag rounds.
played this course ion daytona, you had to throw at a hole in the fence about the size of a disc for a dollar if it is hit.
There was a 25th hole at the old kensington course teeing off from the walking path to the practice basket.
During practice rounds at Cliff Stephens, for the people who are in the 51 club, we sometimes take an extra shot from the AM Pad on hole 9 for a $5 Ace or $1 Metal...Kenny Climo's Home course in Sunny Clearwater Florida!

at my home course, after playing hole 9 you have to turn around and cross the street to get to hole 10. People always stop and throw their putters at this birdhouse next to the entrance to the next hole (140ft-ish). no money, no stroke deductions, just bragging rights.
hitting a birdhouse at 140 feet with a putter would be something to brag about.

Also no one does the stop sign during tournys. Its mostly just a local for fun thing (that and there aren't any tournaments in which to try that round here).
We don't have anything like that at our course, but I think you have inspired me to come up with something. We do like to try and hit the practice basket from our parking lot.
