The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

We've developed a temp 18-hole Lakeshore Gold Course that will be marked on this Saturday only - http://www.discgolfersr.us/events/lakeshore-gold-throw-your-arm - for fun play to see how it works out, with a random draw for prizes for those who throw the entire thing. By combining some holes and moving some tees, we've got 18 holes that total 10,680 feet in length. That's two miles of throwing distance.

Is that too long? Is it any fun to have a 1,340-foot hole that a red level player might take 10 throws to complete?

Finally, the updated map and scorecard!

Good god!! I hope I can make it out to give it a try!
80 feet longer than Highbridge Gold (at 10,600 feet)...wow!

i think it sounds fun
Enjoy!! Let us know how your throwing arm feels on Sunday. Happy Thanksgiving.
On Monday I played an earlier, shorter version of this, and threw a 69. My arm is indeed still sore! Happy Birthday, Ed.
I just wish i could go there.To far from Pa. for me.
The fact that it's unusual means that it should be done! The country is full of "smaller" courses, so go ahead and make a monster.
Awesome idea!! Will look to do something similar to this in NC sometime.

Good luck to all you crazy DGer's in MI.
Sounds great !!!
It depends. If it is wide open then it is way too long. Long and wide open isn't golf, it is a driving contest.

Of course short and wide open isn't golf either. Then its a putting contest.

Distance is a legitimate skill in disc golf but it is not the only skill. There is nothing wrong with an occasional long, open hole. But holes which combine distance and accuracy are far superior challenges to merely long holes.

Of course really long holes with wide open righty hyzer routes will make players happy who specialize in that skill.
Is it 2 miles of walking, or 2 miles of throwing?
Throwing (I know it sounds incredible.) : Two miles of fairway, if you throw down the middle of the fairway. Lots more of walking.
