The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

Whats up to anybody who even reads this. Well...My name is Emma and i grew up in the Kalamazoo,MI area. We have really awesome disc golf courses there. I started out about 3 years ago...but i just got pretty good at throwing just this past year. The 2008 Disc Golf World Championships were held in the Kalamazoo/Battle Creek area...and i have to say that it was really awesome! I volunteered as a spotter for the entire week. It was such an amazing experience for me and i'm so glad that it came around to Kalamazoo. To all the awesome people i met while spotting at the worlds, thank you for being appreciative of what us volunteers were doing. It was so cool meeting so many new people from all over place. Thank you for coming out to Kalamazoo!!!!
Anywho... alittle more about me. Im 18...i go to school at Michigan Tech University studying Theater technology. Its been a really big adjustment coming up here to Houghton, MI (all the way in the UP) because there really are no disc golf courses up here. its kinda depressing in that sense. I really miss my home courses. There is a 9 hole course up here but its really easy and boring so im gonna try to make a club of some sort and try to redesign the course and make it 18 pins but its gonna be alot of work most likely. If anyone knows of someone who would be willing to help make that possible, by donating a pin for the course or something like that, it would be amazing!!! Anywho...thats about all for now. I hope someone was interested enough to read this!

Yippe for the UP! :) I grew up in Marquette. I was smart though and i fled to Florida after high school. Tons of courses, and you can play without freezing year round!

Hey Emma, I volunteered with you at the Player's Package Meeting at OOZAK. I also was a spotter for the entire week of the World Championships at Fort Custer and Begg Park. What an Awesome Experience it was. Good Luck to you at MTU in school and Disc Golf. ;)

Besides the idea for the cc ski course option I commented on there is the MTU ski hill in Hancock. That would be sweet, easy to set up, but again only functional 6 mos/year.

Tim said it all. If you havea small area, put in a second set of tees for the 9 baskets. Look at veteran's park in Charlotte. Its a prety cool layout. the course seems short and easy but plays like a technical course. Just a thought. Plus, 9 tee pads are alot moreinexpensive then 9 baskets.

A female at Tech?...I'll bet you get plenty of attention. Anyhow, can you add nine new tees for the existing nine baskets? That would give you 18 holes without much (if any) of an investment. Good luck.

Hey Emma,

Welcome to the frisbee family. The course you have doesn't really need to be modified, you just need to find people to play with and design your own holes on the course. You can create any tee pad location you can imagine. So on days when the course is clear look what happens from # 2's tee pad to # 6's basket (or whatever). If you have baskets then you can create your won holes. It takes no work other than your imagination to make new and interesting holes.

If you play all Winter then when Summer break rolls along you are ready to tackle the Tournament Tour. The best players play all Winter. The up-and-coming players play all Winter. The average players hibernate.

Thanks for the About Article. I find that the DG community is one of the nicest I have had the pleasure to say I am a part of.
