I used to only approach with a putter (anything inside of about 150 feet), and everything ended up left of target. Adjusting my aim helped some, but not enough, and I ended up with a lot of...

This is me. Though I'd LIKE to think that in a competitive round I'd lay up and take my par. Casual round I'd probably go for it -- I would definitely have a backup driver to use -...

I would have to say that having a quality designer is the most important thing. Everybody thinks they can design a course, but it takes some talent and a good eye to be able to lay out a course that...

If I was trying to get a course put in public land, it would be Shawnee State Park, about twenty minutes or so from where I live. LOTS of land available, much of it not used by hikers or campers. ...

Sounds like you know how much work is involved. Figure out how much your time is worth, and charge accordingly. I'd say $20 an hour is a pretty good baseline (having never designed or installed a...

Has anybody mentioned the Hornet yet? Mine has no bead, or at least none to speak of, and is probably the most overstable disc I carry. And according to inFlight, it's only slightly more overstable...

And it's a lousy review. Tells me nothing about the course or why it was rated that low.

I've actually caught myself hopping AND landing on my left foot before. Normal x-step I finish on my right foot, but I've caught myself doing a big hop and changing landing feet. I'm not sure that...

My Mako was THE straight disc in my bag for a long time. It was too light, though, so I started flipping it after a while. My Ibex is about the same right now - unless I throw it hard, it's dead...

Meh. I always feel sorry for my doubles partner, because I don't seem to contribute much - even when I make a great (for me) shot, it's in a bad position or something. Today I contributed some...

Ashland is a good 45 minute drive from Portsmouth - I drive it pretty often. Don't believe map sites on drive time around here - they're mostly wrong. Armco is as much of a home course as I have,...

I think you're doing yourselves a disservice if you hit Florida and miss the panhandle. I may be biased because I lived there for about five years, but it's a great place to visit, and has some...

CAli should have one extra shot per hole. Super Cali is, I think, actually a disadvantage. You're always going to try to improve your shot, so you will most always rethrow. You are playing TWICE...
