Texans being, well Texans, are stubborn. You can see this when it comes to disc golf. While a handful of high-profile courses have either pulled baskets or closed in the area, as of now there are 54...

I saw that as well and share your frustration. The course conditions were updated by someone else, on Feb. 24. So, someone went to the trouble of writing a review to say the course is open, but you...

As other have said in various ways, I'm not stressing it, but I would like to reach gold status. I've got plenty of reviews (64) and more than 96 percent helpful (270-10). The issue is that most of...

I'm such a minimalist. I usually carry 9 discs (and could easily do with 5). A couple are DX plastic, and most were bought used. I use a $20-$30 backpack that someone else converted. I don't own a...
