There's definitely a huge difference between what I played and what they get to play at the USDGC every year. No ropes, slightly different layout, no signs. Tomorrow will be my first NC courses, playing Renny Gold around noon with course designer/constructor Stan McDaniel.
Rock Hill, SC- Boyd Hill:
Begins nice enough with 5 semi-open hillside holes with one short downhill shot toward a creek and then one longer uphill shot over. Clean and well maintained. Well marked- tee signs… Continue

Horatio loses a C Note
I wish I could cleverly segway this story back into disc golf. Unfortunately, I can't.
Just something to think about while we're loading our plates with turkey and dressing this week.

Will be posting random updates about a course we're working on in a wooded piece of land owned by the city. We're not asking for permission, we're not cutting down trees. We're gonna play disc golf and we're gonna have fun. All may not see this as something positive, but we know we're gonna have some fun and hopefully for a long time. I'll be posting video and photo all over the place once we've got our first hole throwable. Enjoy!

The original picture of this Disc is a sculpture. ｢It doesn't hear it. It doesn't see. It doesn't say. ｣
It is World Heritage and it exists in famous "Nikkou".
The alias is "Three monkeys. "
The meaning is omitted because it is difficult.
I arranged it .
How do you feel… Continue

to visit, Alaska and Hawaii. Today my route to Rock Hill SC took me into NC briefly, so now I've been to all 48 lower states.
Greenville (Simpsonville), SC- Simpsonville City:
Short city park, stays well enough away from other park goers for the most part. Tiny plot of land. Very open- some tight holes and a few trees, but so easy to just throw a hyzer around and obstacle and park every hole. Dual dirt tee boxes, marked by #'ed yellow posts. I'd have played flawless if not for… Continue

The post on the main page of discgolfersR.us got me thinking about spreading the sport. This is a difficult time of year to recruit new participants, as a lot of us go into hibernation. Furthermore, the skeptics are usually pretty unlikely to brave near-freezing weather to get a taste of what disc golf has to offer.
Still, I just hate the thought that I have to go dormant just because the season isn't conducive to outdoor activities (aside from your various sledding and snowman… Continue

so i hit my 4th ace of the year today at parmalee with my star aviar .

I was doing pretty well got to 8 which i got close to a couple of times and hit dead center in the chains autumn yelled in excitement because this was the first ace she has ever seen .
It was a good day

What a great weekend!!! Great setting, and great times. Saturday, the wind was insande, and I got slapped around by not only the wind, but also the insane O.B, Sunday I ended up with another "respectable" round, under perfect conditions at the Red Hawk.
Round 1 69
Round 2 84
Round 3 68
Great experience all around. The custom disc's with your picture on it are sweeeeet!!! No time for pictures. I did not even take one.

I dunno, it may be. Today my ring-finger on my throwing hand began to split open now on top of the middle finger already in a long slow healing process and many large calluses. It was actually bleeding for a bit and I put liquid band-aid on it. My hand looks gross. If it gets worse I may just end it early, finishing up the best courses around (Charlotts, Raleigh) and calling it quite thereafter, not going all over the state and up to Virginia and Tennessee. Who knows, I'll see in a couple days.… Continue

Man what a weekend of disc golf
It started on the 24th of October when myself(right) my brother(left) and another local player chris(centre) hopped on the plane on the way to Sydney. I couldn’t even sleep the night before lucky we had to leave around 3:30am so we could get out to the airport to catch our 4hr flight to Sydney.
Once we landed in Sydney we raced down to pick up our car and started to head of to the course. We… Continue

Shot another 66 in our mini today, arrrrrrrgggggggggg!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Four putts just inches short, 2 or 3 upshots placed farther away than I would have liked creating longer putts than I would have liked. But I'm looking at it from the view that this just means I am due for a breakthrough soon. It's not like I am throwing badly, just that I am off just enough to leave me longer putts than I want. I feel like I am getting close. We'll see how it goes.

Who knew it actually gets cold in the south? Today was in the low teens this morning, with some ICED over creeks.
Newberry, SC- Hunter:
Short 12 holes in a city park, I can drive from one side to the other in one direction of the park. Small creek runs straight down the middle, flanked by hills. Large pines and other, wider small trees. One blind sharp dog leg left, one 350' turnover through lots of pines. Easy but good variety… Continue

No, my game was not steller, infact it was average at best, but there's something special about showing up at open park DG course on a chilly but very sunny day and being the ONLY one in the whole park!! Widefield Community Park DG course is in a old county park but it's a blue level course with a OB creek flowing thru 90% of the course. It has big old oak and cottonwood trees so lot's of yellowed and brown leaves are on areas of the course.
Luckly it's never as crowded as the DG… Continue

Chico disc golfers are preparing to get signatures on a referendum that will overturn the city councils outrageous decision. The most current information on the referendum can be found here (external link). If you are a registered voter in the city of Chico, and feel that it is outrageous that a group of people were kicked out of the park please find out where and how you can help. Sadly I am a registered voter in Durham, so i can only sit back and hope for now.

The design of this Disc arranged "Bark dragon:Nakiryuu" of "Nikkou" famous for World Heritage. This picture is drawn in the ceiling.
It sounds splendidly when ..standing.. clapping hands under the picture (Though the
clerk in charge emits the sound with a tool now).
And, it is called, "Bark… Continue

Beautiful weather for a 11:10 tee time. Had a blast playing with Jerm, and Simon, my new friend from the Great White North.Took a ton of pars, 3 dueces, and a few bogies. The best part of the round is that I only took one OB stroke. Watching Jeremy rock some serious drives was great. Watching Avery absolutely destroy the course was great. He was playing in the group behind us, and was impressed with his play and proffesionalism. 987 round, not too bad, and I now that I can do much better. More… Continue

It was so windy most of the day that playing serious was out of the question. Several times my sentinel and firebird flipped over in the wind. And it was 'cold'. My skin is winterizing fast.
I ran into a current dgrus member at Crooked Creek, so one more contestant to win the basket. He proceeded to hit the cage solidly on #1 as I was pulling away!
Columbia, SC- Owens Field:
Mix of open and wooded. 3 levels- tight woods with narrows tunnels and some serious… Continue

Finally, someone has done it. There is a basket IN THE GROUND at Trophy Lakes. I'm so sick of raised pins, been dreaming of putting one in the ground chains high. They did just that here on #13, the basket is buried in the ground, so you can roll right into it or slide a putt in. NICE.
I am probably going to piss someone off with the recap of Tidal Creek, so I apologize I guess in advance. Take it with a grain of salt, for all I… Continue
