The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

Anyone else just seem less motivated to play now that the snow has arrived? I love disc golf in any weather or so I thought. The snow discing Idea just does not appeal to me at all. I cannot seem to justify to myself why I should throw disc with 6 inches of snow on the ground and 20 degree weather. I want to justify it to myself because I want to throw. I feel like it would be a big pain in the ass to find my discs on blind holes or if I happen to mess up and throw bad I probably wont find the disc because the snow is so deep theres just no way to see it unless I find the exact crack in the snow with is like finding a needle in a haystack.

Any ideas for good gloves that will keep you warm AND you can throw well while wearing? I just want to play disc Somebody make a giant indoor course.

im with Mark. Come to league on sundays, we play no matter what. and the advantage is that if you cant find your disc, theres atleast 3 others to help find it.

Steve...why don't you take a shovel along with ya when you go winter discin. Use it to shovel off those tee pads. Great fun and it warms you up to boot. Also it just might take your mind off that negative behavior you've been harboring.
I think winter disc golf is for giving you a one-up for the snowless seasons. Your wearing heavier clothes which might help strengthen your throwin arm. Hey...you might slip and slide some, but I think we all do that playing during the winter months. It's also a bit awkward and feet and hands get cold as well. Heck...it's hard throwin in winter. So is driving a car. Like Mr. Stephens said..."Man Up Dude". Tee pad work is awkward for me, but up shots and putting I can work with. So...that's what I concentrate on when I play in the midst of all that white stuff. Hey...I'm 61 and I still take a shovel out with me while playing (after a snowfall). If I can do it...so can you. Man up dude!!! Winter is for practice and honing your short game.

Well despite me bitching I went disc golfing today. The cold was not a factor definitely noticed a ton of snow in my bag though that was annoying. And I lost a force today although it was not my own. And if there was no snow on the ground I definitely would not have lost it. I will go more often now but still not very often.

I really dont even like the "too cold" weather. Cool, I dont mind, hot is good, too hot is no good. But I really dont like bundeling up to go out and play.

Us Michiganders use a ribbon taped to the bottom of the disc and FLX plasic. The ribbon is the super thin type found this time of year. The ribbon should be about 2-3 feet long and taped to the bottom with duct tape. Not my first choice of tape but when you put the disc in the car window with the defrost on high, it gets pretty tacky. It takes some distance off but makes the disc much easier to find. Regarding your throwing style, you better work on a forehand game if you don't have one already. You get about zero run up in a foot of snow. One last word on winter golf: HAND WARMERS!

I actually prefer the cold weather playing because i hate to sweat for no reason. In Texas, our summers are so hot you can literally boil water in your disc.
