Disc Golf Tours - What Fun!!!

I have spent the last few days getting caught up on my mapping of the two most interesting disc golf tours going on this summer (at least as far as I know...)

Kindness of strangers, back spasm, no service

Last night I had no roaming signal even, or internet options, therefore nothing got done and I couldn't plan out today. It didn't help that as I stood up from a picnic table my back went crazy and I almost fell down. It still hurts, and I am taking tomorrow off or playing a course with just light putter tosses. I made it up to Seattle for the night. If not for traffic, I could live here. Yesterday at the first course, a stranger named 'Slip' gave me 20$ for the trip! Big thanks to Slip, and to… Continue

Grip It & Rip It @ Roselle, IL

My next tournament is coming up this weekend - Grip It & Rip It @ Goose Lake Park in Roselle. Pro/Adv play on Saturday, 7/26, and everyone else plays Sunday, 7/27.

This year it's going to be a C-Tier. I hope the turnout is good. They've done a good deal of work to get this put together. I've picked up 50 SuperColor discs and 200 Custom stamped discs for the tournament. My stock should be as big as ever :)

The only thing I'm sad about is that I won't have the Pro Pig in… Continue

Ants in the pants

650disc/9mini golf courses

Almost literally..after my last round, while driving, I reached down to whack at an itch on my leg, thought it was a mosquito. It was a big red ant digging into my flesh, and I bled for several minutes. WTH??

Whitefish, MT- Smith Lake:

Luckily I ran into Spencer at the KOA last night, and he showed me around on this unmarked, object course. Also played with his girlfriend, and showed them how to play glow golf last night at the KOA… Continue

Buffalo Bob's KOA

Just finished playing the KOA course here, and had a free burger on the house. Thanks to a man I didn't even catch the name of. I am stuffed, but bound to be out playing a glow round in a few hours with a fellow disc golfer across the site from me.

Whitefish, MT-Buffalo Bob's KOA: Brand new course in carved out of thick woods, not done yet a bit rough. Extremely hard for how short it is, which is very short. Tight lines and some hills. The baskets are home-made, and each… Continue

Mountains of pain

My legs were like jell-o today after just the first round. It hurt more to drive than to play. That course was so mountainous, not a good place to start the day off at. By pure chance my KOA has a frisbee-golf* course at it tonight, so my 4th round will be later when the sun is setting. It wasn't listed because it's newer than the 2008 guide.

Missoula, MT- Blue Mountain:
Just getting up to the 1st tee can knock the wind out of you and make you feel weak, it's about a 75' steep… Continue

One Grand Disc Golf Tour

Hi everyone!!

Gregg Hosfeld here. I would like to invite you all to visit my blah blah blah-g at "onegranddiscgolftour.com"

On July 4th I left Orlando with 825 courses under my belt. I am trying to play 175 more courses this summer to be the first guy to reach 1,000. I've been wanting to reach that number for a while and, to be quite honest, Ben Calhoun lit a fire under me.

I've listed a new post each day since my departure which includes tales from the tour, course… Continue

Following the Miniac, and other disc golf mapping stuff

Many of you have seen the Google maps that I have been working on to display Ben Calhoun's disc golf roadtrip. Well, my old friend Gregg Hosfeld heard about Ben's trip and decided that HE needed to be the first person to play 1,000 courses. Gregg has been playing since the late 1970's (when there weren't very many courses) and to date has played over 800 different disc golf courses. Back when I published the first Course Directory back in 1985, Gregg was one of the best sources of… Continue

Freedom Flight 5... Cash? Yeah. Good golf? Meh.

The title of the blog post says it all. I managed to pull off a $50 cash at the Freedom Flight, last cash spot. Unfortunately the way I went about it was kind of crummy. I played a horrible first round, but came around at the end of the second round to pull it off.

First round started off alright with a 30 foot putt to save par on the 490 foot hole 2. I slipped on the pad on the next hole, throwing out of bounds. Had to hit another 30 footer to save bogey. Two holes later had to hit… Continue

Rough couple of great days

Saturday's Blog-due to no internet options.

This has been an incredible but extremely stressful long day. My GPS did not tell me it was taking me through a national park with a 25$ fee, slow idiot drivers and no gas or food for hours. I had to do it because it was 110 miles to backtrack, there's nothing else out here. I wish I had known ahead, had to drive like a maniac and was still late at the campsite, almost late enough to not be able to stay here and lose my deposit. I ended up… Continue

Big wheels keep on turnin'

And that's not in reference to the 550 miles I drove between rounds today..that was just rough with no A/C in the Wyoming desert. It's in reference to the truck tires, two of them on a broken axle, bounding down the grassy median next to my car at 50mph taking 10' high jumps into the air as they hit bumps..and kept on going. They had just broken off a truck right in front of me..I hope they didn't cross the median and hit a car..but it was hilarious and out-of-this world. The trucker was… Continue

Every week at Handicap league we have a ctp from the club for a choice of disc. The previous weeks winner gets to pick the hole. I aced this weeks ctp! I've always wanted to put that marker on the basket!

289ft Hyzer shot with my Am Nats D-Zone. Looked like it was a bit high & going into a tree brach so I turned around & stopped watching... A guy on my card said Holy Sh*T that MF'r went in! I spun back around just in time to see my disc settle in the basket! Very good pick me up on… Continue

Finally got to see Elk, Moose

I decided to camp for free rustic-like at Hot Sulfur Springs' course, so no internet last night due to roaming.


Tabernash, CO- Snow Mountain Ranch YMCA: In a resort town, on hilly pine forested terrain below and surrounded by the mountains capped with snow. Mix of tight shots through alleys of tall, but dead pines; semi-open longer holes through and over and around much shorter and wider live pines, and a few open holes. Most of the time it is best to be able… Continue
