Ive always had issues with the 10th hole of Riverside North in Grand Rapids Michigan, (my home Course). On one side of the hole you have the Grand River on one side and a high traffic path on the other side. Ive had two major incidents with this hole. My first time playing this hole I make a horrible Drive which heads right towards the path on a night that the park is incredibly crowded. My FireBird nearly scalps two old guys, and will land in one of those baby carrier things that are pulled by bikes. I end up having to chase this guy down for nearly a quarter of a mile to get my disc back. He decides to argue that its his childs until I point out that my name is on the back. A few times later I end up making another bad throw, (which seems to be a theme with this hole.) I made a half decent drive and Im throwing my midrange which ends up 20 feet past the hole, and five feet from creek that leads into the river. I make a nice putt that goes in but Im left pretty unbalanced and tumble in the mud, straight back into the creek. I reall hate this hole

One of my favorite lines during a round can be used when someone is going into the bushes to go pee. I always say this to the other people in my group: "Oh, (insert name here) must be looking for his mini again."

About 2 weeks ago I was playing disc golf at my home course and I looked ahead and I saw this guy riding his bike down a little path. The path is slightly down hill and turns hard at the bottom so when I saw him riding with no hands, I was suprised. I then noticed he had a leash in his hand and a big dog on the other end of it running alongside. As soon as I saw this, I thought to myself "this guy's crazy! he's gonna eat crap!". Sure enough, he reaches the bottom of the hill and flips over the handlebars! He got up and rode off within a minute or two and as soon as he rode away I started laughing uncontrollably. That is by far the funniest and dumbest thing I've seen while disc golfing.

Ball washer?!?

I know that the easiest way to explain Disc Golf to a new player is to compare it to Ball Golf but sometimes it may be taken too far. Hole 9 at Georgia Southwestern DGC has a Ball Golf ball washer beside the tee pad. The bad thing is I actually spent the mental energy to figure out its purpose. I know my disc would not fit into that tiny ball groove. I now have a personal example of the abbreviation "WTF".

Talking Is being ornery, being wrong?

We were on the “The Monster”, #17 at Arcadia Park No. 2 in Fort Worth TX. This guy has his disc go in deep and it may have even made it to the 8 foot deep creek. We start looking through the bushes and I see this snakeskin that I had seen with a different group the day before. So as this guy is looking for his disc, I pulled out the skin and hold it up. It’s as tall as I am (6').

I said, "If you find the owner of this rattler skin let me know?"

That guy's eyes got great big and flew out of the foliage as if he grew wings. And he said, “Screw that disc!”

I said. “Yeah, that snake might be coming back for his jacket.”

I of course told him after all that how long the skin had been there, but he still would not go back in there. I never did find his disc for him…I mean I had to go look for him after pulling that gag.

Hey Donovan, I have played a lot of courses in the Fort Worth area but have not played Acadia. Is it a fairly new course? Sounds like I would like to play it the next time I am out there.

I am told it is a 2008 course, so I guess that is new. If you PM me, I will give you my phone number and go play with you if you want. I live like 3 blocks away from the first hole. I love that you can really open up your drive on this course. The other courses in the area don't seem to let you do that on too many holes.

Thanks for the note brother!

I had a few incedents involving bums on the course all on hole 7 @ the Redwood Curtain in Arcata. The first was a bum siting and meditating in the middle of the fairway, people were just barely missing him and he didn't seem to notice a thing. A month or two later a friend of mine takes his drive and it sails past some branches and stumps and hits another bum in the dome. He picked up the disc and started to yell at my friend but after seeing how many of us there were and getting yelled at about being on the fairway of a DGC, he shut up and left. Then yet another time out there I threw up my midrange just past the basket and it almost landed on sombodys old dirty panties that were laying next to the basket.

2 snakes doing the deed...

at Indian Hills, my buddy and I were playing along and on hole 13 i think it was I look off to the side of the fairway, in a little gulley kind of thing, and 2 black rat snakes, they had to be 4 feet each, were completely entangled in each other doing the nasty...it was one of the coolest things i've ever witnessed in nature. We just sat there and smoked and watched for about 20 minutes...the course was dead because it was brand new, this was back in 2002.

A few weeks ago I was warming up at Cedar Hills in Raleigh, NC. The second tee is about 30' away from the basket for hole 1. My partner was teeing off on two when a disc flew right by my head, missing me by only a foot. Well, it may had missed me but the my partner turned around just in time for the disc to hit him directly in the family jewels. He dropped like a rock. I didnt know whether to laugh or take him to the emergency room. He was ok after a couple of minutes and we had a great laugh the rest of the afternoon.
