The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

Hello All,

I'm new to this site and relatively new to the sport but love to play it!  I've read quite a bit online about technique, types of discs, throws, etc. but it's a bit overwhelming. I'm one who learns best, hands on from an instructor.  Are there such things as "clinics" or "lessons" in this sport and if so, does anyone know where I might find some in North Texas.  I've searched online with no luck!

see if there are any disc golf clubs in your area, contact them, show up at their events, I'm certain that somebody there will be glad to give you some "hands on" instruction
I would agree with Jeff, Find a pro in your area and ask.

As for North Carolina, We do them with Video assistance so you are about to see what you are doing, what you need to do, and your progression.
Enrique, go to some locate touranments. Ask for some suggest, for other players. Go to You tube and watch them over and over, then work on it. I have talk to other players, when I was out playing. Everybody has been very helpful. Just take your time and work it. AND HAVE FUN.
First, welcome to a great sport! Second, join your local disc golf club. Start playing league. Play with as many different players as you can. Ask for help and advice, but remember that what works for someone else may not work for you. Buy some of the training DVDs. Scott Stokely DVDs and the Ken Climo Learn the Champions Way DVD come to mind. All of the Discraft videos on YouTube are good. Be sure to check out the Mark Ellis Putt Confidence Clinic.
Find a local league to play in. I'm sure that down there in Texas they play all year round. Then have a beer (and not a domestic light beer) and contemplate the beauty of it all. Learn the X-step first for your backhand.
if you are close to turner park, it looks like they have a weekly event on saturdays at 10 am. Talk to those folks there. People are usually glad to help out.(at least here in indiana they are) I would guess there are nice people in texas as well.
Thanks everyone! I'll definitely be following up with all of this great advice.
Always check with your local Club : Here is our info : www.sandiegoaces.com
I know Jay and Desire Reading winter or live in Texas, maybe try and get a hold of them they are good people and great teachers they might be willing to help. otherwise have a friend video tape you trying to throw flat and straight and post it on this site and im sure we can help.
If you're anywhere near Brady, Tx. call me. I've been teaching for 20 yrs. I designed and built a teaching course here in Brady. There are a wide variety of throws needed to play the course well. Ask the old guys if they remember me. I've played since '82 and still after 2yrs have the course record in Brady. I won most of the pro masters events in Austin and Dallas in the late '80s. I learned from some of the best in Tx. and Ok. I played worlds twice. Our course is never busy, often windy, and full of wildlife. Brady is laid back and cheap to get by in. scarylarry3946@yahoo.com Larry Mann pdga#3946
Hello Larry,

Thanks for the post & the offer. I'm about 3 hours from Brady but may be willing to drive out for some lessons. How much would it cost me and for how long of a lesson? Would it be a different rate if I brought a friend or two? Thanks again!
