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.

Definitely miniature discs for pieces -...

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

While I am in the minority, I really like the Prodigy naming system - no guessing or...

I agree - this is a fantastic course in a beautiful setting. Played this as part of a 7-course road trip to the Evansville area and Prides Creek was by far the highlight.

I also agree with the...

I question the purpose of the thumbs up/down overall, other than being one more thing for people to get worked up over.

In this area my favorite is Monroe Community Park, which is a 24 hole course that averages 247'/hole. It's very technical but there are clear lines on every hole. A 1000-rated round is around -11,...

Japan Open on TV

Turned on my TV this morning a little after 6:30 and the channel happened to be on the Fox sports station that shows the Beach Sports Network. To my surprise, there was disc golf on - turned out to...

It's simple

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

Sure, there's a lunatic fringe (I should know - I attend the meetings) who spends decent money on discs and...
