my home course is one of the hilliest in the area and fairly long. if you play all 27 holes in a 4some, it can take 3 hrs. i did loose about 15lbs playing this year

On our second round we caught up to a group of three that started well before we finished our first round. Basically it was throw a drive(or two-three) grab bag, walk briskly to discs. Throw putt in or approach. walk briskly and hole out. Rinse and repeat. If you are constantly playing, you are moving. I know some people that take multiple breaks per round. Yes they are being active, but not at necessarily exercise level. You will be much more active playing disc golf than the person sitting on the couch.
I love speed golf. Watched Adam Olsen and Mike Randolph play timed rounds at the chateau course - quality and speed!

I'm serious, if you want to get in a round at a great course with some excellent elevation, go there. Now.
Thank you! We have over 600 work days in 6 years and have had an average of 5 guys every Monday for the last two years (at least April - October). We enjoy the process and love that people enjoy the golf!

Thanks again!

I've lost 200lbs from playing disc golf the past 2 years. Yes it's great exercise and don't let anyone tell you it's not. From walking the various terrain, elevation changes, carrying a bag full of discs, arm movement, etc, etc. This game has literally saved my life.

It better be good exercise because it's replaced my morning 2 mile speed walk! I play mornings and have the course to pretty much myself so I can get around pretty quick, usually 30 minutes or less for 9 holes. I play an average of 18-36 holes a day.

thread revival!!

I saw that Strava was mentioned here a few posts back. I use it all the time to track my bike rides, but I want to start tracking my DG rounds on it as well along with a paired heart-rate monitor. I figure it would be a good number to have - how many calories I burned playing DG in a year. These numbers can be used to help promote the sport, yea?

Anyone else use Strava to track DG rounds? I will follow you (on the app).

I'm going to play in a 101-hole tournament in a few weeks. It is a slightly above average hole length if I had to guess. Any guesses as to how far I will walk?

I tracked 13.4 miles at a 48 hole tourney a couple weekends ago with my phone's LG Health app. Not sure exactly how accurate that is, but knowing the course, it should be within a mile... However, I could play 101 holes on a few local courses and never walk more than 10 miles. There are others that would be well over 25... In Southeast MI? I'm going to venture right in that 25 mile range.

After posting this I asked someone who tracked it last year.. 26 miles. This is from a good player too, so I'm thinking it could be higher with less accurate drives.

No wonder I'm always so tired afterwards.
