Just wondering, did the disc it happened with have a particularly large flashing? Some discs will have them leftover from the molding process, and it helps to take some sandpaper to dull it down a...

Looks great Greg. Can't wait to come play the course again when these are up. I'd say they're alot better than most tee signs I see out there.

This is something I really need to do more of. Not necessarily for narrowing down discs, but just to get practice in on shots I don't use that much. My issue is I just think playing courses is...

I love those types of holes so much. Just the opportunity to let gravity work in your favor. I'm not sure if I've broken 500' on a downhill hole, but I've definitely come close. However, I haven't...

So, you're either going to have a 2' by 12' teepad, or a 4' by 6' teepad. Either way, that wouldn't work. You'd need at least 10 to get an acceptable 4' by 10' size. Then you're talking $140 a tee,...

This may be a dumb thing to say, but I've never heard the term "ski hill" before. I'm assuming you all are using this in the same context as a "sledding hill"?

I'd agree on the bricks, but I think I've played a couple courses with paver pads that seemed to hold up well. Installation makes a big difference.

As far as my personal preference goes, I still...

I still think rating par on a 0.5 scale would fix this greatly. You still keep score like normal, but a hole could be anywhere from a par 2, 2.5, 3, 3.5, and so on. Some holes would be impossible to...

So, you're kinda like the Mr. T of disc golf. And if we ever see you out on the course with just one or two discs, we should probably offer you a couple dollars.

I'm pretty sure I heard a pro once say if you could hit 600' without wind, you could have a chance at breaking the world record. Going off of that, that's a good extra 200 and some feet.

But lift has the force of gravity acting against it. So the higher the mass, the higher the downward force of gravity. But if you take into account wind drafts, that really overcomplicates everything.
