I am on a quest and I need someone to represent Arizona. Please respond. This is not a joke.
"Disc golf can never grow to people until a handicap system is created, thats what made ball golf so popular is that pros could be beaten by ams, this made more people want to play the sport. My experience is that most pros want it to be so…"

"Oh, I have finally figured out the handicap process I need to assist the old and infirm (like me).
The scoring works this way: players are ranked based on how they score relative to par. Par, for each player is their age.
So if a 20 year old shoots…"
"For our handicap league, we structure it so that $1 of the entry fee goes to the hot round (non-handicapped). That way whoever shot the best score hands down still takes something home even if they did not have the best handicapped score."
"Appalachian Golf Writes: One thing that makes me mad is how some people have hijacked this thread to bad mouth handicapping. I will promote anything that will grow my favorite sport. I love to share my love of the game with new players, and…"

Hi, Blake, what a beautiful course Fountain Hills is.
Welcome to "DGRUS" - which is what we use as shorthand for www.DiscGolfersR.us. This network is operated by my wife, Sheila Calhoun, and myself. Please don't hesitate to ever provide feedback, and especially let us know of operational problems or of people violating our guidelines, the most important of which is, "Behave as though everyone in here is your friend!"
Among other reasons, we created DGRUS to provide disc golfers with a place on the Web where "On the Internet" does NOT mean "In your face." Please check out the full set of guidelines if you have any questions about that: http://tinyurl.com/DGRUS-guidelines.
The network's value is increased with each new member, especially when they share. So please use the "Invite" feature - http://tinyurl.com/DGRUS-invites - to urge your disc golf buddies to also join.
We'd like everyone who visits - more than 30,000 people a month - to join, but nearly everything is viewable even to those just browsing through. There are various ways for you to control who can or cannot see things that you post, and there are also various ways for you to control the email messages you get (or don't) telling you about things happening in the network. Please do share photos and videos, and join in forum discussions. There are nearly 700 clubs in here and you can start your own public or private one. We love it when members share posts in their blogs.
Never hesitate to contact us. You can use the internal messaging system, the "Report an Issue" button at the bottom of each page, or email us direct at firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com. If you feel the need, you can even call me at (734) 355-0431.
Finally, please support our supporters, whose advertising you can see on every page. We started this totally as a fun project, but it grew so fast that we could not maintain it without their support.
Thanks for joining us. We truly hope you that this network magnifies the fun you get from disc golf.
