the Oaks (again)

I had the day off work and played The Oaks in Mokena again. A buddy and I started early around 8am. Played all 27 holes and I finished at 6 under par. Probably my best game to date!There was not a single person on the course besides us. I think that even more enjoyable than my score.See More

"West Park is aweseom, if only for the name alone ;) The IIT couse great but its not fair to compaire it to some of the other courses. if you play the courses near Joliet and NW Indiana then its not really worth the trip. its only has 9 holes and…"

first run at IIT course 6-9-2009

So I made it out to IIT 9 hole course on campus.first, everything that people complain about is true. the course is short, there are a lot of people around (not playing), and you are playing in between buildings.on the plus side though its straight south of my house. walk to the corner, get on bus, wait 10 minutes, get off bus which drops me off at the first tee.the campus is nice though, the tees are well marked and the baskets are bright and new. great for practice and getting in short games…See More

Hi, George:

Welcome to "DGRUS" - which is what we use as shorthand for www.DiscGolfersR.us. This network was created and is operated by the Calhoun family: myself, Ben, and Sheila. 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. As well, you can use the DGRUS Remarkd Flymart to either sell or buy disc golf stuff.

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 terry.pirate.calhoun@gmail.com and sheila.m.calhoun@gmail.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.

- Terry Calhoun
