unfortunately the total vote counter isn't tabulating correctly. By correctly, i mean not tabulating at all.... so while it says there are 0 votes, in truth there have been somewhere over a dozen to date. It is something i plan to either fix or remove all together before the next poll.

what do you know. I was the first to vote on the poll!

I started a polling feature on the Discorlando site so you all can weigh in on what you think about the area courses etc. This months poll is: What is the most challenging course in the area. To vote, click here. The poll will close at the end of the month. Feel free to suggest questions.

Happy Discing!

just as a note, we have assigned over 100 membership numbers in the two full years of running the club.

It's a pity that those who don't step up to be involved in (big or little) events can be so critical of a club doing what it must in order to make their events run smoothly. While the Orlando Disc Golf Club isn't breaking any records with memberships, the core officers and members are doing some great work. Some DO appreciate it.
Persevere undeterred!

If anything else it’s got to be good for Disc golf

It’s very nice to see this website being used as an idea, thought and discussion tool… I try to follow as many posts as I can (when time allows) especially the ones about clubs, people I know or topics I have interest in…Anyway I want to say good job and thanks to all who share the INFO ( it’s good for the sport)
I hope other clubs, as well as other players has found this website to be such a useful tool …

we had to initiate a different par for each set of 9 holes in order to allow us to use any combination of the four 9 holes sections to create an 18 hole course. Now each nine has a specific par, thus balancing the cap scores from week to week and evening the paying field for those whose play different set-ups.

Actually the difference between the Orlando handicaps and ours is we use 54 as par.....no par 4's...no 5's. Regardless of the course difficulty....par is 54.

We have a wide enough variety of skill levels in daytona to create the scale.

Basically found all our club member PDGA player ratings, found out what their daytona handicap is and went from there.

Ex: Shawn Lenk has like a 985 pdga player rating and a +3 handicap in daytona so we started from there. Rumor has it about every ten ratings point = 1 stroke.
We went down the list this way: me, terry, jamie, Steve Bremer, Gary, Norbert. There pdga player ratings were consistent with there Daytona Handicaps. love it when a plan comes together.

We also have a "vouch" system for immediate handicaps. Me, Shawn, Terry, Jamie or Lloyd, need to "vouch" for the players ability if they don't have a player rating. ex: say Phil Rowe comes to Daytona for the weekend, we know he is around the skill level of a Bremer. We will assign him a handicap along the lines of Steve's.
Player's from out of town we don't know. Sorry,no player rating?, have to establish. we have had issues with out of towners saying they are a certain level, which they aren't. Oh well. This process eliminates that happening. Plus with internet access on phones now, we can quickly look on the pdga website for ratings.

Yeah, you would have to re-do the scale based on your club players ratings and their Turkey Lake handicaps. Not sure how it would do when you guys play fronts and backs between the two courses. Somthing to think about.
