Where did you first learn to play disc golf? How long ago was that? I learned about the sport in 1993. North Bend, Oregon. Little 9 hole 2 pad PuttPutt course. We used to play doubles for dollars back in the day instead of going to high school.
Horizons Park near Winston-Salem, NC in October, 2008.
First noticed some chainlink baskets placed around a small playground/park in Elon, NC one day (during my neice's birthday party.)
Naturaly, I was curious to research what on earth these baskets were used for; and why they were placed right in the middle of hiking trails and landscaped natural areas. Two Google searches later I had located the nearest disc golf course and planned to try it out.
With only a $13 investment for three used discs at Play It Again Sports, I located the closest course and played a lonely, and poorly scored round.
During my second round that day, one of the local players, after sharing some tips on release and form, reached into his bag and handed me two discs: a well-used Roc and DX Pegasus for me to try out and keep.
Realizing now that most disc golfers share this generousity and helpful spirit, I know this has to be the best sport on Earth, lol.
One year later, I have now played over 25 courses and inspired several friends to try disc golf. Two of them are as addicted to DG as me and we just joined the local dg club.
