That was one of the nicest intro pieces on disc golf I've ever seen. They got through all the basics and without the typical egregious errors one usually sees describing disc golf: i.e. holes are 300-400 yards long, discs cost $50 each, Pros make $100,000 a year, are just a few of the outlandish statements I've seen in the past.

The only thing that bothered me was the hole where Mcluen gives the instruction - gotta love how walking paths run the entire right side, and a playground sits on the left, where all the bad shots from right-handed novice & recreational players will end up. For a Forest City course that otherwise looks really, really nice, this is an unacceptable safety hazard and very poor course design, imo.
