disc golf is year round in DFW. If you are here more than 3 days and can't find a chance to get a round in with decent weather, you are just unlucky.

Quite a few years ago at this point there was a new member who went by "kachtz." Most of the initial attention around him was prerube and jrawk squawking about what seemed to be internet distance at that point (along the lines of 500 ft for a new player). I met him at the first Mid-Atlantic DGCR Meetup at Hawk Hollow and it turned out the distance was real.

A bit later than that kachtz contacted me about working with him on a course design on a very special property in Montross, VA. That property was Lake Marshall and one of the 3 courses there is on track to become the highest rated on this site once it has sufficient reviews. It is fairly safe to say that the (eventual, maybe) highest rated course in the world would not exist in its current state had it not been for DGCR.

I joined DGCR for the message board. In 2012, I discovered "course bagging" which added a different level of enjoyment to disc golf. Thanks to the DGCR community I have a never-ending goal:



Play Them All



Thanks!

That's gonna be a tough one to top.

If not for DGCR, I never would have played as many courses as I have, and definitely wouldn't have played as many truly wonderful courses as I have.

Finding courses is one thing.

But if you're specifically looking for quality courses, you simply can't beat DGCR.

I definitely wouldn't be into dg as much as I am without DGCR...especially the VIP section circa 2012-2014 and meeting up with ian. TourneyPlayer, Rolex81, bpierce, sgamerp, mr. fixit, jay dub and others.

So much great info here, some of my favorite people in DG, and the amount many are willing to help others have a good time in the DG world is fantastic.

Playing my first round in the snow on the Bald Eagle course with Martin Dewgartia while he was walking on a peg leg is a great memory. Probably made even more funny since I was wearing a full suit and tie.

Getting a round in with Wellsbranch250 and GM at the excellent VRock course and almost acing the V rock hole was pretty special.

Bogeynomore tipping me off that toboggan was open while I was in Detroit.

Spirited course discussions with Shadrach3.

And the many other players I’ve gotten to play with, trade with, and share information about this sport that has become a bigger part of my life than I ever thought possible.

Other online communities may be bigger, but no one cares more about disc golf than the people here.

...i never would have had the reason or motivation to go to any of those places or take those trips without DGCR as a resource. that also doesn't take into account the dozens of small towns i've driven to or through bagging courses in Texas.
^This right here. Once I discovered this site it was a whole new ballgame (discgame?).
Shortly after joining I moved to Mobile AL and without this site I would never have realized just how many courses were in that area, and wouldn't have used that as an excuse to drive around to dozens of courses within an hour or two of there. Same thing happened when I moved to Colorado a couple years later. Also, there have been several times since then that an otherwise boring or chore of a road trip has gotten way more fun since there's something to look forward to/break up the trip. I would never have been excited to stay a night in Amarillo, TX or Shreveport, LA if I couldn't find courses in the areas, no matter how good their Domino's Pizza is.

DGCR has absolutely kept my interest in the sport since I joined in 2010. Sadly there's less traffic here than the 2011-2014 timeframe but I still log in daily. I do use UDisc now for finding courses and checking conditions, but my official course tracker is done through DGCR. I haven't met a ton of DGCR's IRL but I did meet kutz167 when I first moved to Houston and he helped introduce me to the scene as well as serving as a travel buddy for out of town tourneys and course bagging trips.

DGCR was key in getting my game going. Myself and two friends started as an alternative to playing a second round of ball golf on Tuesdays. Fell in fast and the DGCR maps got us out and about. Forums really helped with terminology and basics as we got into local social scene.
DGCR helped with my inspiration for course clean up, volunteering at events and investing cash and labor in new courses and bench building. Maps still my number one value especially years I worked on the road and trips.
Became a premium member here to support the site and no plans for ending that.
Thanks DGCR.
