Urban practice

Does anyone else like to walk to the store at night and do little upshots from place to place?? I always seem to like tossin putters from A to B when its nice and empty in town, avoiding cars and houses of course.

I dont like my discs landing on tar, so no.

But we do night city golf for fun sometimes. With old discs.

I've got a sweet little object course in the parking lot down the street. My medium VP's don't mind the asphalt.

I play a lot of urban guerrilla golf. There are thousands of corners where disc golf "holes" could exist and it's not fault of their own that they can't be a part of a full course. So why not go out and play the hole you see, even if it's not in the ground as a permanent fixture? I do it all the time and thus far I have yet to have a throw go awry. Though I have lost a few in storm drains. I think these urban courses are a excellent.

^ Where's the fun to be found in that? I wait until lunch recess and play through the local elementary school...down the hallways and across the playground. Now that's a good time.

This reminds me of my most horrible disc golf experience. There's this mediocre course close to where I used to live. One of the holes is about 240' with a playground about 140' out and 100' to the right. Now, at the time, I wasn't as good as I am now but still fairly proficient. There were kids on the playground, but I thought "there's no way I'm going to throw in that direction." (This just shows how dangerous your mental game can be.) Sure enough, I roll my wrist bad and it flies over, hits a metal part of the playground, and bounces back towards the fairway. The horrible gut wrenching part is it was within feet of hitting a kid. I felt sick to my stomach at coming that close. Now I NEVER risk it if there's kids or elderly anywhere around, even if it's 30 degrees left or right.

I still aim for deer tho.
