Maybe this should go in the Meetups board, I dunno.

Anyone here into Disc Golf? There's a course about an hour from me in Easton, MA [http://www.borderlanddiscgolf.com/]

Played it yesterday ... pretty cool. Except that it's really in the woods, so deer ticks and poison ivy are a consideration. I got home with neither ticks nor poison ivy though, so I guess it's pretty okay.

Anyway, it's a fun way to enjoy throwing frisbees around, and to enjoy nice weather and fresh air, and it's cheap.

It's pretty central for New England I'd guess, so it'd make for a great way to meet up IMO.

Doesn't Will enjoy a game of Disc Golf?

Damn hippies.

You'll be raving about Hacky Sack next.

Speaking of which, I'd love to get into Hacky Sack.

Actually... I just threw an Even yesterday on my "home" course... which is my best score all year. Haven't been playing my best... I would say I am about a +5 average at the time being.

That's a "handicap," Willy.

You're a 5 handicap.

i love disc golf too but i've only played once.


i'm never able to go play with my friend down here that plays regularly because something always gets in the way.


i wish i could play more. Its sweet. I get to play ultimate frisbee every Sunday evening though but that's not as chill and certain assholes take it way too seriously.

disc golf is awesome. ive been playing ultimate frisbee for 9 years [4 at the club level] so im very accurate in all of my throws on the disc golf course. i prefer using a regular 175g frisbee instead of all those fancy disc golf frisbees. in fact, i was never able to use a frisbee specific for disc golf all that well. a regular frisbee feels better in my hands. plus i can throw both a forehand and backhand about +70 yards as well as a +50 yard hammer if there is a tree in the way.

^

How often do you need to replace said Frisbee?

Because I know I like to replace my discs every 6 months or so...

Just asking because I always see a lot of Frisbees on the course that are shattered or really poorly warped/bent.

i only get out to the disc golf course 10 times a year, at most. most of my summer is consumed with traveling for leisure and ultimate frisbee tournaments. so, i would say 1 regular disc will last me the entire year. but that also depends on how many trees i hit and how hard i hit the basket (ha, is that even the correct term?).

thats awesome! i run a local syracuse ultimate frisbee league two nights a week. that combined with 2 practices a week for the club team leaves me with little free time for more frisbee. enjoy your round tonight!

Dude, don't knock it till you try it. I friggin hate sports, honestly. Can't stand it when the baseball games are on and I'm trying to play songs for the patrons.

But disc golf is just plain ol' easy fun.

I never knew there were "putters" and "drivers" and all kinds of frisbee's until Will once explained it to me. To be honest... it all added a bit of seriousness and dampened my vision of bright pink frisbees thrown by hippies running gayly through fields of green as chipmunks and squirrels chilled and giggled in the branches above.

It was worst that finding out santa and the tooth fairie aren't real in one day.



Do what I do, man. Ignore the serious dudes. I don't use a pink frisbee, but I do run gayly through fields of green as chipmunks and squirrels chill and giggle in the branches above.

^hold on to that one, good find

i haven't played disc golf in about a year now, we used to go over to philadelphia to play at fairmount park, but that is kinda of a journey to play some disc golf, spending two hours on travel time for a round that only takes an hour isn't worth it. when we do go we play two to three rounds, it's a good time but i do enjoy regular golf more. i suppose it's got a lot to do with the fact that there are so many reg golf courses. disc golf is fun though, and it's great to find a new course you've never played. We played this course in the Poconos, it was so hard we just stopped playing and smoked some bowls b/c it was taking like 8-10 throws a hole. I think somebody just put the baskets out in the woods and was like, there ya go, disc golf.

i'll have to try to make it out again soon, there is a course about a half hour away that we play the most, but it is very flat, and very wide open, not many obstacles = not much fun, good to practice on though.

A few weeks ago my buddy and I played in Detroit.

Worst. course. ever.

9 holes, all straightaways with no obstacles whatsoever.

I think I shot a -7 or something.

Plus we were in the middle of the ghetto...

had to keep checking my car after every shot to make sure it was, well, still there.

I am just happy we decided to play Hudson Mills in AA... Beautiful course!
