Hey guys I have a couple of questions... I have never played in a tournament of any kind. I have only been playing disc golf for about a month but I try to play every day. Im not very good (most of my drives are in the 150-175 foot range and I generally bogey,or worse, most holes) but I really would like to get better. It seems like a random doubles would be a great way to get better but that leads me to my questions...

First, how do I find out about these kinds of tournaments? And second, I really dont want to tick anyone off by having them get paired with the worst player, so should I get a bit better before I sign up for one?

We encourage new players here. We like it because our local pros are wonderful teachers and it evens out the field. We use an a/b/c random draw. Pros get newbs and the ams pair up. We average about 20 players on our 2 weekly leagues. And scores very seldomly spread beyond 10 stokes. Look for regular players on the course and ask about local legues. Or do a little online research. If your ever in the Albany NY area we have leagues tuesday and thursday night. Check us out at http://discap.net/

I played in random dubs last year at a tournament at okeehelee park in florida. My partner had just finished fourth in his division at worlds ( i think his name was dave) and I had been playing for a few months. I was horrible. He was a great sport and was supportive throughout the whole thing. I was horrified that I "ruined" his round but he assured me it was supposed to be fun and he had been in the same spot i was at one point.

Very positive experience.

If there is a local club website check that, if not look at your local courses bulletin board.

Funny thing, I have never played locally but just played in Greenville SC on a trip.

The way I see it is, if they're that great they'll be fine whether you do well or not.

Over 10years that is good.

We play random dubs every Sunday.. We actually have a handicap system to even it out... definitely needs some tweeking next year though, but after years of or most recently the last few years of the same guys winning it's nice to spread it around

These necrobumps from new accounts are probably spam.
