I recently did a road trip that included a stop in Nashville and played those same three and Cedar Hill was definitely my favorite. Seven Oaks was definitely fun, but I thought it was one of those...

I don't think many people would object to having a separate World's/US event for a number of divisions similar to the USGA model cited here. Instead, it is having so many divisions at virtually...

Just curious - if extra holes were used to make two of the courses 27 holes, which would then have you playing 72 holes total, would that be acceptable?

I'm not suggesting that is even possible...

Give us a break - can you honestly say you would be so indignant over this perceived injustice if the "cheated" division was not one that impacted you or your wife?

Great concept.

Instead of houses/hotels, use baskets/pro shops. Have a card in the karma deck that gets all your baskets pulled or pro shop closed.

Are you suggesting that you decide to try a disc even in part because of its name? That would be hilarious.

It's simple

One of the big issues is that there is very little money to be made off of disc golf.
