Everything on the moon would be really overstable. I hope that's a pig he's throwing.

I disagree. Everything should go dead straight since there is no air to affect flight.

That's true. I don't know why I equated high altitude with the moon. I drank too much last night. My brain isn't working.

Yea, I guess the moon would be real high altitude. . I think that would be something like 1.5 million feet above sea level.

Or maybe a 3000 ft shot. On the moon everything is 1/6 the gravity. So a disc might be a light as a feather.

I would love to hear some reviews for that course. Would it sound something like this?

PROS

Very nice view of Earth along with other things floating around in space. The park is fairly large comparatively speaking and the course is in an area totally devoted to disc golf. I hear the Russians are planning on building a space station on the site near holes 12 and 13 but that has not been confirmed by the PDGA or at least I couldn't find anything to back it up. The course is never crowded so you can really take your time and concentrate without many distractions. Its never windy. For those players who don't like the water throws, this course is perfect. Very clean, I saw very little litter. Great for all skill levels.

CONS
Sort of out of the way, not worth the trip unless you are in the area. Holes can get repetitive as they are all wide open. No benches, trashcans, bathrooms, or water fountians. Natural tee pads were a little distracting. They are very uneven and have this weird mix of powdery sand and lava rock looking stuff. I lost my footing several times. I had a hard time finding the basket for hole number seven. It's in the crater near the big boulder.

OTHER THOUGHTS

While you are you are out in space you can finally answer for yourself the age old question. "If I fart in space, will it propel me"?
