Personally, I like a good map. But I've found that there are some people who just don't get it when they look at a map. Those folks need something different - like a sign maybe.
Also, maps on a...

Wildapple!

Wildapple Disc Golf in Osseo WI is mine. It was my yard, my woods and my sheep pasture before I became addicted to disc golf. Soon it will get an upgrade to 18 championship baskets! Yup, you heard it...

After reading through, I notice that there is no real weight on accuracy versus distance. I figure that for driving, distance is the primary factor that differentiates poor from excellent. It is just...

I chose A without reading any comments on the thread. My idea is to get as much of the hole as you can, soonest. If your drive is good enough you don't need an upshot! If your approach is good enough...

BH and FH do not fly quite the same. I say, if you can develop a good LHBH for those shots that need a right fade, then you are way ahead. I've known several players who could BH with either, and...

The rule of thumb used by experienced designers...

The rule of thumb used by experienced designers is 3 ft of distance for every 1 foot of elevation change. Thus the 200' hole with 150' of elevation throws like a 650' hole (200' + 450'). A 200'...

My wife doesn't play due to physical issues with her elbow. As she is very busy, she is not willing to just tag along either. On the positive side, she supports my obsession. So while sometimes there...

Advanced bagger? No such thing!

I object to calling anyone who is playing "Advanced" a sandbagger! Advanced is the top level division for amateurs - you can't go higher and still be Am! No one should be told they "have to " be a...

My vote:
Noodle arm = under 250 feet
OK = under 400 feet
Big Arm = over 400 feet

On my home course the "titan air" hole has markers every 100 feet from 200 - 600. Even I who claim to be a...

I agree with the lite discs - the Shark from 136 up, Leopard from 125, Polecat from around 110. You might find light Roc's or an Ace, too. I especially recommend the more understable shark and...

I just voted 50%, but I think I'm probably firmer than that. Maybe a two day jump with some car-pooling thrown in? I'm good with tenting!

Optimizer! Flippiest thing I ever met, and I like understable discs. That and the "Maximizer" are available from Gottagogottathrow. Might be OK for beginner little kids.
