The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

I live in North Dakota, if you are going to play in a tournament that isn't in your home town its a minimum of a 100 miles one way to play. In a weekend we may travel over 700 miles just to play a tournament. Heck there are those that do it just to play another course besides there own. I started this game in Middle TN and 700 miles could get you more courses than you can throw in a weekend.

So what do you consider to be to far and How many tournaments do you play in a Year.
To me 1000 miles is to much and I play in at least 6 to 8 tournaments a year. Don't forget that we have a very short season up here.

I used to live in Charlotte, NC. I have travelled to southern NY, Virginia (Newport News and Blacksburg), Toccoa and Atlanta Georgia and to Melbourne Florida. 3 of those places I had a place to stay (friends or family) and the others I was able to take the weekend off from work. My only constrant for travelling to far is getting enough time off of work, that and having enough bank to do the journey.
Well gearing up for my first tournament this year. I am going to the Gold Rush in Rapid City, SD. It will be 900 miles round trip. Im sure by the time we are done we will have put down more than a 1000 miles for the weekend. The course we will be playing on is new and it also has cabins right there on the location. We will also be eating at the kitchen facilities all included in the price. I only mention this because it is yet another way to make events more affordable for travelers.
It sounds like there will be a hundred or more players, if you are in the Wyoming, Colorado, and Montana area you should try and make it. Here is the link for the tour http://www.pdga.com/event?TournID=8564.. I hope you can make it, if you have any questions please drop me a line.
If I can afford to go, I'm there.
950 Miles is my biggest round trip weekend so far this year. Jamestown, ND to Rapid City, SD. I have also made a few 500 mile weekends but thats just what we do to play in the greater midwest.
i think the distance traveled should only be limited to how much money and time you have for discing.

in my case im still playing locally, but someday i want to travel the country playing disc golf at the nicest courses of each state.
rather than the tourneys which i think are terrific i tend to head for the ten day junkets doing all the good courses on the way from A to B .............. more events closer to home are good too! god bless all good courses close to home
what a dic4
If I was driving I would go as far as the nearest A-tier every weekend.
23 hour Airplane trip !!!
is hawaii to far? maybe you jump on a cruise ship with at lest nine baskets on it. at lest you could a couple dozen rounds of nine buy the time you got here.lol aloha

I wanted to update this thread and let everyone know about my trip last year. A good friend of mine Byron and I set out for a two week trip that covered 4300 miles. Our first stop was the midwest masters in Menomonie, WI. Steve Kinde really knows how to put on a tournament and to top it off we finished at a Bar and Grill that has its own nine hole course. Next we traveled to K-Zoo to see Wade Sullivan and let him tour us around the city. Great job and we loved your courses and hospitality. The big trek now is to Nashville and play all the courses we can on the way down. I met up with Bobby Brodie of Cloud Nine Disc golf and checked out his new throw shop in Hendersonville, TN. Great job BZ all the way. Now up to the At&t classic for one of H.B. Clarks awsome tournaments in KY. What another great tournament. Finally we head toward Kansas City, nope not to play, but check out the casinos to try and recoupe some money. Well we had a good time and no extra money to be made.

 In short everyone should do this as a great get away and meet people in the Disc Golf community. We met a lot of new friends and played many new courses. Im planning this years trip as I am writing you this memo.

I have traveled 37,000+ miles by car on 1 disc golf trip
