The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

Probably should have taken a day off, but I felt good and it was nice out so I didn't. I can't believe it's in the 90's in late September.

Grapevine, TX- Bear Creek:Besides actually being a good course, it just isn't possible to play it well and enjoyably. On hole #5 I had to putt backwards down the fairway instead of at the basket, due to ivy vines blocking my entire route. If you follow through on the drive on 3 holes, your hand will brush a poison ivy vine. If you go off any fairway, you are in it. I left a red Roc behind on #17 because of that, unable to go look for it in the tall ivy, I had no other choice. That's the 3rd disc lost for that reason. Other than being a so choked with ivy it's disgusting and a joke, it's a decent shots course. Mostly medium (250-350') holes either through woods or in a field with tree lines. Nothing out of reach, nothing too short. Dual cement tees, decently well marked *(seriously needs a sign for #13, as you have to cross #1's fairway, go over a bridge, cross the parking lot and enter the woods through a small trail to find it, with no signage to it). Well maintained and mowed, busy course. has several creek-crossings, once over a pipe, with nasty water 10' below, if your feet get shaky take the bridge to the far right. Gets tighter as it goes.

Arlington, TX- Veteran's:Finally a course of the terrain you might expect in Texas, some of the holes are in the 'desert' with loose rock fairways, steep hills, cacti, low oak trees and exposed rock. It gets pretty intense physically. Has signs, easy to navigate other than holes 5-8, well mowed, good cement tees. Easier than expected, but very tough for a beginner, and definitely rewards some distance, but you need to have control as well. A few big shots over walls of trees and shrubs in the desert landscape, with one going way up a steep rocky hill, roll aways can happen often. Balanced design. Rough on plastic. Makes you want to play again, but it wears you out fast. Little/NO poison ivy even on tight woods holes, amazing.

I think your posts are starting to get to me. I had a dream last night where I was on a DG course, and I looked to the side of the fairway, and there was this HUGE patch of ivy covering the ground. Jinkies!

Hope you are doing well. I just had to comment. I love Vetrans Park. I was almost a fixture at that tourney for a few years. I am missing it again this year, because of Halloween (we do a big thing here for the kids). Hopefully finding some cheap gas, and less ivy.
Be well!
