The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf
Last year I had a ESP nuke that was dyed with a bio hazard insignia on it. There is a hole on one of our local courses we call the anthill. You sort of shoot across a valley that runs about 200 feet from teepad to the base of the hill. And the hill itself is about 50 some feet tall, pretty steep in most parts, and covered in trees and shrubs. The valley running up to the hill has a clearing by the base to approach from, but the rest of it before that point is blanketed by a thick patch of trees and bushes. So it's not always easy to accurately gauge depth if you have an errant shot. I think I sidearmed it skyward and it hyzered hard toward that hill, but that was the last time I saw it. Looked for a good hour scouring the areas I thought it could have went. Never found it, never got a call of course even though my info was covering the bottom of the disc. First time I had ever lost some dyed plastic so I was pretty bummed about it. Have since lost three total discs on that hole, so now I am very conservative with where I throw my nice plastic, and when to let the beaters do the flying.
I lost it the other day at sleepy hollow state park A Ching Precision ---was playing an "island" hole its more like a penninsula with water on both sides. Right before I got to this hole I had just hit a 100 foot annie putt around trees with this disc.
So this "island" hole is pretty crazy. You tee off and it goes forward, then down a steep shorthill to the left and goes into this really narrow path where the basket lays. It was really windy this day and usally this disc dont do to bad with short distances... the wind that day picked it up and threw it left in a completely disgusting pond and therefore confiscated my disc lol.
Maybe the worst was not one disc, but all three of my Sidewinders got lost in about a months time. Basically left a huge hole in my game not having a hyzerflip or long turnover driver.
Most recently I lost a Lat 64 Vision, that was my go to roller and mega turnover disc. I am in the process of replacement now and it's not going smoothly...
I lost a lat vision on that very hole around the 4th of july went to the right lhbh only about 3 feet off fairway, looked for a least a hour even went back the next day ,because we were camping there . thick thick brush , ruined my weekend , I did buy another vision and is not even close to what I had . bummer
Lost my Favorite , Straight Flyer , Pro Starfire , 174 grams , in the Lake at the San Francisco Safari in Golden Gate Park.
Yea dude- that hole is brutal, what you cant see in the pic- the sides that are thick brush aren't very wide up next to the basket. The brush is on a fairly steep incline and at the bottom of that thick brush is a 8 inch drop straight into some kinda deep water thats hard to see in.
Anyone know of a putter that floats? :)
I was all cut up from that brush , very thick and thorny , happened to be short and flip flop season.
Score! I left a disc behind once... good thing I didn't use it much lol
Augusta Champ Wraith I'd had for 5 months. Threw it into a huge pile of storm debris that the city dumps on the 9th fairway at Oak Grove every year. Never even saw it out of my hand... and my friend wasn't watching.
