Flip does compare in certain ways to Lincoln Ridge; both have 24 holes with fun factor off the charts. Flip is a shade more difficult.

Lincoln Ridge vs Idlewild

According to Burky's post, we are at a similar play level. I've also played both Idlewild and Lincoln Ridge.

Idlewild has a number of terrific holes and deserves its lofty rating. Hole 1 is a...

Definitely disagree with Dave242 on Oshtemo. This course has many 'just right' grassy fairways in dense woods, a unique contribution to the disc golf world. From the long tees, this course separates...

Up until about 18 months ago, I could throw a thumber about 300' on level ground (with no wind). Now my best throws average about 300' with a RHFH. My backhand drives are either weak or griplocked,...

I have an unusual, arm-out forehand drive that resembles a sidearm pitch. When you are trying to drive 300+, you need an overstable driver with high speed glide. The best discs for this so far have...

My backhand isn't the greatest, so in the aforementioned circumstances I'd drop in a thumber (Firebird 172) like a hand grenade.

Oops...I meant 'peace of mind' of Whitehall. However, maybe one would like a 'piece' of the thieves' mind.

I think the best way to think of a good thumber is as a center field to home plate throw, or a good tennis serve.

To the previous poster who said that his Dad could throw a baseball much...

Definitely hit Three Rivers Original while you're here, as well as Oshtemo. Then consider Robert Morris.

I liked the F-14 (Flyboy) vs. P-51 Mustang (Flip) reference. Maybe like comparing a new Lexus LS460 (Flyboy) to a 1969 Camaro RS/SS (Flip).

Overstable/fast discs are necessary for rollers that go any sort of distance (250'+). Of course an understable disc will be easier to get to roll, but will pull left when thrown hard.

I thought Waller Park was a tad overrated when I played in Feb. 2011. Navigation issues and missing signs were problematic. Beautiful pines and grass, though.

New Leviathan Photos Posted

Played a pleasant round with landon77 and jamays on Saturday 6/4/2011. Took quite a few photos, and updated some of the incorrect info on this site.

Leviathan is one heck of a drug, I mean, course!
