Par in Disc Golf.

Postby Jwt4412 » Fri Apr 21, 2006 8:18 pm

Got a tell you... when I first started playing it was just a couple of us ol' dads who lived up next to the park and saw the baskets in the park and said...

It's free and it is walking distance from the houses, why aren't we playing?

So we started playing.

First it was if we hit the basket in counted...

Then it was "ball golf" scoring - Par 4 for each basket and then the two long baskets were Par 5, the two short ones Par 3.

So I started thinking I was getting good at this stuff because of all the "birdies" we were shooting. :roll:

What a buzz kill to find out that Par was 3 on everything after starting to play with the local disc club this winter.

I have to say though, once you actually know the rules - it really is a much more enjoyable game.

Get out there and hits some chains this weekend!

Playing a Tourney Tom. for the first time.... can't wait!

So true... Mike.

When we do local tourneys - we show up an hour early for "clean up" and then the first round starts.

Club has taken the responsibility of removing poison ivey from the woods too.

We don't take it for granted that the courses are free in public parks... we have gotten pretty proactive and the park board is asking for numbers/quotes for a third course in town.

Honey and vinegar -- honey and vinegar.

We do garbage bag rounds once a week, but had to start carrying 2 bags. Front nine fills one every time. It's great the courses are so full, but it can't be that hard to hit the garbage can.

Just get a pet Roc, they're big enough to carry those bears off.

Take care of the bugs with Ortho Home Defense Max. Indoor or outdoors nothing better on the market. Works for everything and is safe to spray with out harming animals or people. Now if they just made a bottle big enough for the course.

Had first leagues game of season today. Naturally all the little kids are dragging pop bottles around and then try to just toss them down. After he dropped his powerade bottle I looked at him and loudly said "That's a stroke added to your score." He's like huh, why? I said LITTERING adds a stroke each time. He didnt belive me. I pointed to my rulebook in my bag and said "read it for yourself if you dont believe me"

I think this needs to be stressed more to the players.
Littering is a courtesy violation, bad manners, and uncalled for.
