"I understand that there are badly-designed courses and just plan bad courses. The PDGA has nothing to do with it; it's a local issue, dependent on the people who arranged, designed (or hired a designer), and installed the…"
"Schedule a week off from work.
Play a lot of (sanctioned) tournaments in 2014.
Well, the scheduling part is a bit light-hearted, depending on your situation. But if you work where there are restrictions on off days or how many workers…"

At the tail end of your journey, you're going from Asheville to Rock Hill to Savannah? If so, Rock Hill's a bit of a detour. Is it for non-disc golf reasons,…"
