On the old, home-grown, now extinct Massey Palace course, there was a basket in the barn loft doorway. On the accompanying Hidden Valley course, there was a hanging basket that could slid on the...

Firstly, congratulations, Greg on your accomplishment. I know what you're saying about basically being The Lone Ranger. Wish you had done this ten years ago, when I was in Princeton every few weeks...

If the park in which the DG course is located has athletics fields, painting the OB lines with the same paint they use to mark the lines on the fields and pitches is optimum.

As most have said, it's a nice, but largely unnecessary feature. We were able to do it very well at Johnson Street 23 years ago and more recently, to a good degree at Springwood, using an alternate...

Both are indeed important to be posted on tee signs. Distance is, of course, the primary parameter on which par is based. Par is probably much more important to the newer player than the...

Doesn't that figure!?! Been wishing that that course were available to play after getting off of work in downtown Greensboro at 5. But now my schedule's changed to 7 pm. As for 16, if they would...

I'm with you, David. It's good to know that there are TD's who don't make that kind of monetary distinctions. I'm just saying that in my limited exposure to tourney play over the decades, mostly...

Grand (Master) Suggestion, James!

I have long thought that the word Advanced was inserted into the names of the various Masters' divisions, solely to justify charging a higher entry fee. I appreciate that some TD's don't do that,...

I know a fellow who aced the same hole two Saturdays in a row. And in answer to Jerry's question, I'd say 66/33.

An obviously rabid fox came out of the woods next to the #1 tee at Stokesdale last Summer and attacked my playing partner, sending him to the doctor for the rabies shots regimen.

Some GREAT Thoughts!

LOVE some of these! They made me think, "Hell, YES!!" Litterers/vandals; shirtless/crappily dressed players; unruly kids and dogs; 'heave and hope' forest holes/courses....but at the moment, I'd...

The Courses of Cedarock Park

Though the engraving in the Cedarock #1 tee pad inaccurately says 1986, which was the year that it was poured, the course was up and open for play with natural tees in 1984, and hosted the 1st Sneeky...

We're Definitely an Enclave

I've never found a little known English word that better defines disc golf(ers)..."a minority group preserving its own distinct culture while living among a larger group".

Really!?!

Wow! Something's potentially worse than #8 at Springwood, Drew? Or anything at Springwood? Cool! Didn't think that that was possible, from your POV. But, of course, you can fix it!

Yes, It Is, Evan

Like many of the courses of the time, it was pretty short and easy, by today's standards. Longest hole was 220/230; #16 was a straightaway 60' chip. You're obviously too young to know the course,...
