The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

Brian Matthews's Blog – January 2008 Archive (5)


As I'm sure many people who get into disc golf are, I am taken by the plethora of golf discs available for the sport. Now, I can't say that I have tried anything like a significant number of all the offerings, but I have been a little rabid about finding those that work well for me at this stage of the game. Welcome to the club, I'm sure.

I have been playing off and on for about four or five years, but only recently started getting more serious about it. I am not a big arm guy; my…

Cliff Stephens DGC

This is the home course of 12-time world champion Ken Climo, and it's a gorgeous one! The park's claim-to-fame is probably #10, right alongside Moccasin Lake. I lost a yellow Champion Sidewinder in this lake, and I gave it up for lost. If you can't throw across this lake to the basket, you RHBHers had better plan your hyzer well.

The front nine is mostly under the canopy of oaks, and makes for a pleasant first half.…

Limona Disc Golf Course

My wife Colette has a friend that she sometimes meets up with at the Brandon Town Center, east of Tampa, and a few weeks back she did again, so my daughter Celeste - whom I've been getting interested in disc golf - and I tagged along with her just because the Limona DGC is nearby. And I had never been. So we went.

It was a chilly, somewhat windy day, but the sun was shining and the course was pretty much empty, although we did run…

Tocabaga DGC at Maximo Park

Once I discovered that there was a thriving disc golf community north of me, with numerous disc golf courses, I set out to visit as many of them as possible. The closest one is right across the Sunshine Skyway Bridge, on the tip of the Pinellas peninsula, and it's named after a tribe of Native Americans that used to inhabit the region centuries ago: Tocabaga.

Tocabaga is a fairly big, spread-out park with practically no water hazards to deal with,…

Taylor Lake DGC

I paid my first visit to Taylor Lake Park in Largo FL, where I went and lost my favorite orange Champion Sidewinder into the drink off of hole #11. Bad throw. Switched to it from my Star Roadrunner at the last second, and that's what I get. I fixed the problem with a hop over to the Clearwater Disc Golf Store (www.gdisc.com) before coming back home... now I have a lighter…
