The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

Figure since I am new I will tell you guys a bit about myself. I started playing disc golf 3-4 years ago. I had a friend come in from out of town who loved it and told him I would tag along to spend some time with him and fell in love with it. After that game I picked up my first disc, a Shark! I still use it to this day for all around shots.

I started going out to Brown park on an almost daily bases (it is right around the corner from the apartment) and picked up on the game rather quick. Within the end of the 3rd month I was already throwing Par for the course! I even hit my only Hole in 1 at Brown my first year, it was on hole 6 with a tye-dye Crush. Sadly I lost the Crush at the end of the season.

For the next season I didn't play that much due to work conflicts. My drive started to turn "south" and I was playing barely under boogie golf.

For my third season I still was driving on the bad side but started to get my through corrected to what it was. I started going to Waterworks a decent amount since it was close to my parents house (I moved back in to finish some schooling for 2 years). I must say that if that course gets cleaned up it will be my favorite 9 hole course. I also played a decent amount at the EMU course between classes since you can rip through it in 25 minutes solo.

Well, I think I talked about myself enough for such a lovely day. Time to get out to Bandamer!

I'm hoping that we can cut down, from the beginning, on large groups at the Ponds. Because it is so open, it will be quite obvious when a large group is resulting in unfairness and backups. No hiding behind the woods.

Brian, it's only a few miles from Rolling Hills, near the intersection of Grove and Bridge Roads.

I play Rolling Hills a decent amount as well (my friends and I always go in on a pass). I just don't like to deal with the big crowds that can occur there. A friend and I went out on Sunday afternoon there to play a round and got stuck behind several LARGE groups (ranging from 5-8 players). 2 of them let us play through after a hole or 2 but one did not, not even after we asked. We ended up skipping a hole just to get going on a nice pace. But, on the plus side my drives have being going more true this year, even with the high winds we had over the weekend.

I have yet to go to the Ponds. I don't even know where it is to be honest. I am always looking to try new things and that includes new coures.

Sadly, I am at work today so I wont get a chance to go out unless the rain holds off this afternoon.

Brian, I think it would be great if someone or a group could invest in some good signage for Waterworks. It's a good course, just hard to find your way around (low budget). Ben and I were talking today about how nice it would be to get better signage and rearrange the course so that Hole 2 was not under water so much.

The Ponds at Lakeshore is pretty close to there. Check it out. Also, Rolling Hills.
