My discs are lucky to get wiped off when they get wet or muddy on the course. Not sure what the point is of a special cleaning is - they're just going to get dirty again. I'll bet some of you...

Let's be fair, brutus. While I too have enjoyed having our premier area course in the Top 10 for a long time, I'm afraid its standing will (and should) come to an end eventually. There are too many...

I think it is much too soon in disc golf's evolution to have a grand slam - we don't even have a well-defined tour at this point.

I certainly agree that Pro World's would be considered a major...

$10 for me and it's not close.

I can understand those who have not had an ace before choosing one over a little money, but otherwise I don't get it. How about this - give me $10 and I will tell...

McBeth vs. Lizotte - 4 hole challenge

I started this so as not to clutter up the 2016 videos thread with commentary

He sounds like my random draw partner from a few weeks back. As we are getting ready to tee off on the first hole he tells me how he shot -10 in singles yesterday on this course, so I'm feeling...

I think a pro shop and snack bar are good if you can swing them, as they should generate more revenue for the owners. For myself and most of my playing buddies, we're so used to grabbing a bottle of...

I'd say a throw is a unit of measure, and like calories, I consume too many of them.

But it's a good comparison for another reason. Trying to assign a par to a hole in disc golf is like trying to...
