When they changed the name from Frisbee Golf to Disc Golf me and all of my friends thought that it sounded stupid, and would never take. But here we are on DGCR, not FGCR...
A "herby" excommunication sounds good to me---in fact, I think I deserve one now. Back in 5!

Sez you. I'd be throwing a 175 lid, as a committed Ultimate player. In fact, I threw a 180 Innova Ultimate disc as our tosser on the Grand Canyon the last 3 weeks.

These kids today, with there fancy baskets, and golf specific discs. And I heard rumors that they want us to play rounds "unenhanced". What are we going to do with 'em?

I always say "Discin'", which originated from "wanna get some disc in?" but now it's just "wanna go toss?"

Frolf... just.. No.

Folf is acceptable, even though I don't know why those people don't just convert into saying Disc Golf... it's not the PFA... but as long as they don't insert that dang "R" into the word then I don't feel the need to backhand them.

Hucking/Huck is a popular team down under...wanna go hucking, lets have a huck etc....dunno where it started.

I use the term 'ball golf' as well, just to see if they question WHY I refer to it that way...

First heard the term for throwing far in ultimate, but it definitely applies to disc golf too.

Also, how do people respond when you say "ball golf" down under? Got curious.

For nicknames, I mostly hear "disc golf", and I noticed most people who call it frisbee golf still view it as a "backyard sport." I think building interest in the sport should solve that problem.

As for the term "frolf", glad I checked Urban Dictionary before asking if other members could explain it to me, would have been embarassing... If it's any conciliation, more people referenced disc golf in the definition than the other term on that site...

I find myself saying "ball golf" as well anymore whenever referring to That sport... when anyone tells me they played some golf I need them to verify for me which type they are playing.

#DiscGolfProblems I guess...
