    Default Disc Golf "frisbee Golf"

    Well I saw the hackey sack thread and thought that reminds me of playing disc golf.

    Haven't done that in years.

    Anyone in here play ?

    There's a disc golf course being set up here at the hot springs right now. From what I've heard it'll be an open course, but we'll be renting discs. I preferred the idea that some of us had of just selling discs outright and not messing around with rentals, but for now we've been overruled.

    Can't wait to give it a try and also look forward to some experienced players telling us which discs to buy for ourselves.

    I do occasionally at the course down the street. Still fairly new to it, but it gives me a good reason to some walking in.

    Just like regular golf, it's 80% in your head. Humbling to see some young gal throw it further with less (apparent)effort.

    we have many frisbee golf courses here but I prefer to freestyle myself as the "frisbees" used for golf are more like throwing a discus than floating a frisbee to drop right into someone's hands from 50 feet away.

    I just played the course at Rutgers New Brunswick two weeks ago for the first time in about 20 years. We used to play an object course there before the pole-holes were put in. Although I agree with Lynx that throwing to someone is more appealing than throwing at something, I still get plenty of enjoyment playing disc golf.

    I picked up an LED lit frisbee from walgreens years back that I have never got to use. I need a frisbee flashaholic in this city lol

    Played all the time in college and for a few years thereafter. There is a challenging course just around the corner from my work, but I rarely play anymore. I could stand to get the exercise in since it's a long course and in the StL heat you can certainly build up a sweat pretty easily. I still have my discs. I have two, a driver and a putter. Found the putter in the woods at a course I played frequently in Ohio. They serve my abilities just fine.

    There is a course near me and I have been wanting to try it. I think I would like it but I am not so sure that I am willing to run out and buy discs.

    Control your investment initially, just buy one or two. I would get a mid-range and maybe a putter to start.

    I've played frisbee golf a couple times. I went camping with a couple friends one time and we actually designed and setup our own frisbee golf course.

    I played a lot in college. Fun drinking in a park playing some frisbee golf. We would act like loud, obnoxious idiots. There is a course down the street from where I currently live and I see the same college crowd out there drinking and having a good time.. but I can't help shake my head and think to myself "oh you kids have no idea"

    We skipped many Fridays of high school senior year to play disc golf. That was 16 years ago. I still have my discs but have probably not played in over 12 years. In our area there are about 8 local courses, so we have many choices. I have even played a course down at the beach which was all sand dunes. Fun stuff.

    Just like regular golf, start with something that can do anything, a good approach disc is like a 7 iron, you can drive, approach, chip, putt, basically anything. In ball golf, I've played entire rounds with nothing more than a 7 iron and a putter (even out of the sand).

    I love disc golfing. We use to go all the time when i was living in stevens point attending college. The bad thing was every other college student would be out at the 18 hole course as well. My favorite were the groups with 15+ people that wouldn't let you go around. My solution was to play after dark since the course never closed. My fenix tk40 worked perfect for lightening up the holes. Good times.

    We have one great course here, in Pittsburgh, that i know of. I've only ever played with my wife who is not as big of a fan as I am. I slice/hook those freaking discs everywhere until i figured out that I throw the putter best; so, I'm the guy on the course that drives and puts with the same piece and my bag only has putters in it.

    We have courses starting to show up in my area and it looks fun. What kind of costs are involved to get started on a minimal basis?

    A starter set of 3 discs at Sports Authority is less than $25 I think. Cheap sport.

    Edit: this is the one I bought http://www.sportsauthority.com/produ...:referralID=NA

    Yeah, it is fairly cheap and encourages some walking.

    It can be humbling too, when a 14yo gal throws it 50' past your massive grunting effort.

    There are some good instructional sites with videos. Worth checking out...

    We have a great course here in Kennewick, wa. And the weather to play pretty much year round. You are right a total different deal than tossing in the park. And people do get intense, but then it is winning and loosing on the course. I just have a few frisbee's and go with them may add more later.

    I play occasionally. There are 3 courses where I grew up and at least one where I go to school. Its a lot of fun when its just you and your friends and not a lot of people trying to "play through" much like real golf.

    Great game. Most frisbee games are great games.

    This is a good deal, I have used the shark for years. The putter and the shark are worth 25.00.

    one of the cheapest hobbies i've ever gotten into... certainly a lot cheaper than my current one, competitive shooting.

    i used to play all the time, i still have about 50 discs and 2 nice bags. this thread may have just motivated me to get off my lazy butt and go sling some discs, it's a beautiful day... thanks guys

    I used to play all the time but the Texas heat has been brutal lately. I haven't been out in years to play some disc golf.
