At nearly b$1,000 to get started (yikes!) and four hours to play a round, no wonder I'm not a golfer when my version is more in the range of $100 in equipment and one hour to play a round. Since I...

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...

Playing instead of watching

I've been playing since the 1980s and have probably only watched about 10 minutes of disc golf in my life, and the majority of that 10 minutes was in a disc golf store while I was waiting for a buddy...

I appreciate, and to some extent agree with, your premise on not reviewing a course and judging it on something that might be temporary. However, updating course conditions for those who travel would...

This was part of my response to a local course designer who wanted to explain away the flaws with his "baby" and call it a 5-disc course when it simply was, and is, not.

A LOT of hard work has...

My regular group generally plays "ready golf." It's not that we don't know the rules; it's that we all would rather speed up the pace of play. As long as we all agree and play by the same rules, it...

I use my XCal so much that one of my friends calls it my putt and approach disc. While I have never (almost never?) putted with it, I do use it a lot on forehand approach shots.
