The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

First off, I haven't been watching the news all day but I am confident Obama will win. So much else to write about now can't even turn on the news.

Thanks goes out to Chris Lenkiewicz for the hook-up, a free 6th floor room at a much classier hotel than motel 6. I am sitting on the balcony overlooking the waves crashing onto Daytona Beach right below me as I write this.

I met with Greg Hosfeld today, the other race-to-1,000 course guy, and for anyone who placed a bet, I hope you bet we both reach 1,000 at the same time or you lost. Greg was gracious enough to offer up a plan- to both play our 1,000th round somewhere together. After playing Gordon and Debary, we worked it out over subs and a course directory, making lots of calls. It's going to likely be on November 18th, at the International Disc Golf Center in the Augusta, GA area! I have 13 course to play before then, so I'm taking it real slow, saving the last 3 for the IDGC, and I'm going to crash there for 4-5 days, offering my help out on the course working to make this place a reality and taking a break from DG. Anyone is welcome to come make it out and witness history.

I also played with Gary Burdick, Guydro, Jamie gr8 Rocshot Ruane and Norbert from Disc Sports Player.

Orlando, FL- Gordon Barnett North:I played the other course 2 years ago. This one borders a bad 'hood on a few holes, and people have been mugged playing it. Well marked- tee signs have pin placement indicator! Cement tees, some with dual for the big water shot to finish- 300' to clear water to a smallish island basket. Well maintained. Plays tough, hard to break par 54 by much, with some easy deuces and a lot of long par-3's. Some tight woods with rough, some wide open, and a few hills which is nice around here. Pro shop on site.

Debary, FL- Debary:Sweet little 9 hole course, with dual cement tees, well marked. Might be 18 someday, butting heads with parks dept. Well manicured, grassy lawns in and out of native flora stands and some pine forest. No water hazard. Clean playing, a few long shots, one par-4 and some variety. 2 tight and low straight holes. Potential here, and perfect location halfway from Orlando and Daytona.

***Daytona, FL- Tuscawilla:***Played it also in 2006. It's been changed a bit due to hurricane damage, massive tree loss. One of the nicest to play and best courses in Florida. Well marked, NEW pin placement locator, cement tees, 3 per hole! One very small and steep island basket. Several other significant water hazards, somewhat retrievable. One big over water shot. Flat, grassy park though tall trees with room to throw high and wide often. Each hole is different, and most give you an option or two. High visibility by busy road is a + and -, people see disc golf in action and you can stay there all day and eat at nearby restaurant, but also cars make lots of noise. Loops a tight 9 then a wide 9 around the inside loop to finish.

Tomorrow is NEW TIRES (Goodyear Assurance Comfortred), then Reed-Canal, St. Augustine and Atlantic Beach.

Just remember to make your putts on the last hole of the1K course at the same time, or somebody will have the record first!

Ben, it was good to finally hook up, play a couple rounds and work out the details. Looking forward to seeing you in a couple of weeks. Now, I'll bet they will all go to their bookies and wager on who putts out first!
