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!

Try 9 holes of the monster course first.
If goes well, then try the next 9.
Treat it as 2 rounds.
Throwing (I know it sounds incredible.) : Two miles of fairway, if you throw down the middle of the fairway. Lots more of walking.
depends on if the 1340 ft hole is a par 5 or par 6.
10 throws on a hole is not only not fun, it's not really golf. The first 6-8 throws are just a hike (interrupted by hard, no-reason-to-aim throws) to get to the point where you can actually start to play.
I would love it, I love long courses. What is the par on it?
I myself don't have the arm to go distants. I like lake Shore but I don't have the arm for it, so I don't play it as much I should play it.
If you don't enjoy throwing discs in to the OPEN air and watching them fly, then why did you even come out? Of course 2 miles isn't too long Terry! If it is too long you are either too old or restricted by time to play. I hope I make it out, probably not, but it's still possible. Learn to throw a roller or go to Bandemer or MBD on Saturday if you don't like throwing bombs. THANKS TERRY!! PAR 54 duh!
Well it's only the most shot-type biased course in Michigan. Good holes mostly, just so imbalanced.
ive played longer, Milo Mciver in Oregon is over 12k from the pros and is AWESOME. But i have to agree with mark, if its that long and wide open..... :(
I'm going to give it a try. I'm up for the challenge!
Disc golf needs a "Tiger proof" couse. With the techno factor and people throwing further. It sounds fine. Maybe disc golf should take a page from ball golf and have multiple tee pads (blue, white, and red or Pro, Am, and Rec) But 2 mlies should be fine.
Sounds like desperate measures to put something in that is better than what you had. Do all your courses suck so bad that you're needing a 2 mi course. I guess 54 throws aren't enough to get you warmed up. I think there is some deranged thinking going on here. Lets see... If I can't win on a short course lets make it longer- more throws = more chances. Sounds to me that very few good par 3's are being designed now days.
