Disc Golf trees

Hopefully I'm not the only one out there that thinks the scarred, marked up trees along the courses are cool. If they could tell a story, I'm sure it would be full of curse words...

The negative effects to the trees from our discs aside, I think they're awesome. And I want to see more!

Bertrand in Niles MI has some wonderfully (in an admittedly kinda sad way, obv) scarred ol' sentinels.

There is some tough trees on that course. I have seen discs broken in half after losing in an impact battle with a tree there.

Well, to be fair, I'm sure they're not really any harder than other trees of their kind....

OK. Here's my favorite M'Bertrand story:

circa 1988, an S hole shaped fairway somewhere in the middle of the course. My friend steps up to the tee and anounces "I will show you how its done!". He's pretty proud of the disc that he is using, a Hammer. He grip locks this thing, and throws it straight perpendicular to the fairway, over the dense woods, and off the course entirely. We didn't even consider going after it. She may still be out there somewhere?

I makes me a little sad, honestly. Though they are a renewable resource, not really renewable in our lifetime. The land and tree are what give a course life. I have vowed to protect them and worship them. I hereby, on DGCR, renew my promise to avoid hitting them at all costs. I declare them my friends.

Anyone who has played #7 at Castle Hayne will tell you that those trees have earned their stripes. Below, at 9:23 you can see Barry Schultz become the victim of the "Axis of Evil" (as we locals are wont to call them). And then see David Wiggins eagle that hole in the longs like a BOSS....
