The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

After 27 years, I've found something I love and that is adding good things to my life. Thank you disc golf.

I've only been playing disc golf for about 2 1/2 months. I've very fortunate to be in a location with a few great courses and a lot of great players who are always willing to help give advice and make playing a lot more enjoyable. Most of the courses when I'm from are short, technical courses. Most of the holes average between 200-325 feet and are in fairly wooded areas.
In the short time I've been playing I've become completely taken by the game. I have started clearing off a 20 acre patch of land to build my own course, the closest one to where I live is 25 miles away. I'm hoping to have the course ready sometime around the end of the year/beginning of next year. I also just finished researching and writing two proposals for local disc golf courses in the community, one I'm presenting to the city department of parks and recreation and another to the local sports plex (basically YMCA).
Disc golf has driven me to get back into shape and live healthier. I play about 10 rounds of golf a week and also run 3 miles a day. I've also cut back on the amount of cigarettes I smoke, as well as cut back on my caffeine and friend food intake. I'm feeling the best I've felt in my entire life.
I am very grateful for what disc golf has done for me. I have new friends, I'm healthier than I have ever been, and I'm motivated to do good things for myself and hopefully my community. I would like to say "thank you" to the all of my local disc golf community for introducing me to this amazing game and the new life it's given me. My life is starting to become rewarding and I hope I can do something to return the favor to the community with the proposals and the course I'm working on building.

Could not agree more. I love DG for these reasons. However, best thing? Maybe not. Top 5 - for sure.

I will meet with Sports Plex July 6th for a proposal for a disc golf course and another meeting with the City of Corinth Department of Parks and Recreation to be scheduled sometime in mid/late July!!! I'd like to thank you Burns for offering to help with the proposals, anything you can do will be much appreciated. My great uncle, who was mayor of Booneville, said he'd go over the proposal and help iron out any details so the proposals will come off as professional as possible. I'm extremely optimistic that things will go well and soon there will be something new and good for everyone in Corinth to do. I think today may be the best day I've had in a long time!!! I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this will work out.

Hey Jai Ti, disc golf has been one of the best things to ever happen to me as well, and I'm so glad I tried it out, couldn't believe what I had been missing.... And Disc Golf people (for the most part) are the best group of folks I've ever met. I'm glad you caught the bug bro! Get up with me about those proposals, I'll do what I can, and pull whatever strings that I can pull to help get a course in C-town! Crossroads DGC.....
