Valet Parking on Hobbs Farm #8 (white tee), 291' downhill:


... only that's #17's basket.

File this under "take a moment to actually look at the tee sign before you throw," rather than assuming the basket in front of you is the intended target.

Disappointedly picked up my disc, plodded back up the hill to play the hole as intended (admittedly, a tougher shot, with a much trickier pin placement)... carded a 3.

Allow me to follow up on this post:

If only I had video...
Having finished Hobbs and Tyus ahead of schedule, I headed to Don Shannon Memorial, thinking I could squeeze a 3rd course in that day. Get to a very scenic hole #2 - a water carry across some rocks/boulders that create a quick flowing rapids (pix don't do it justice):

Don Shannon Memorial DGC, #2 Tee:


Basket to tee:



I got this. So I launch my driver and it hits the bank across the way.

... only to flip up and roll back toward the raging water!

Assuming I'll never see that disc again, I walk across the concrete blocks laid out to get to the other side. I make it most of the way, when I see my disc laying on a large flat boulder about 3/4 the way across the rapids.

Can’t reach it with my Disc Gator, but think I can get out there to pick it up. Figuring I might need both arms free to balance, I leave my Gator on the far bank with my bag, and proceed to step/hop my way out to the rock... damned if those things ain't slippery. So I make it to the rock my disc is on, reach down to pick it up and my left foot slips out from under me. In about as ungraceful a manner as is humanly possible, I fall backward, instinctively swinging my left hand behind me trying to break my fall, mangling my left pinkie on the rocks. But the real kicker is that as I'm falling back, my right foot swings out in front of me... propelling my disc into the torrent.

My finger’s dripping blood, I’m pretty much soaked, and I’m standing on a rock with water rushing all around me, hoping I can catch a glimpse of my disc… but nothing. So I rinse my bloody finger off in quickly flowing water. Make it back to my stuff and throw holes 3 & 4… when the sky opens up, like a message from the Lord himself to cut my losses and het the heck out of Dodge.

Here’s what the seat of my pants looked like afterward:

Relayed your story to a couple of guys yesterday. We feel your pain, man!

...but, yeah, getting it on camera would've garnered thousands of hits online, or maybe cash on America's Funniest Home Videos...

Yikes man! That was quite a scene...and I kinda wish I was there to see it, but I'm also cringing a bit. Sorry about your disc.

Thanks. Finger's healing quite nicely (antibiotic ointment is good stuff!), and I have backups.... just gotta beat one in to where it's at that sweet spot.

To be honest, if I we're there watching that poor slob fall on his keester, this first thing I'd have done was ask if he's all right...then I'd have laughed my arse off.

I also never understood the stoner image Disc Golf has until I played there. I asked one of the gentlemen whom were at the practice basket where hole 1 was. He pointed and preceded ro ask me if I smoked weed....I got away from that group quick

I don’t have a picture of it for obvious reasons but I was once playing Berkeley Park in California and there was a dude sunbathing nude in the middle of the fairway on the back nine. Needless to say I skip that hole

There's a small creek that runs in front of hole 5 at my local course, at roughly a 10 o'clock angle, between the tee and basket. Somehow, someway, my wife shanked a drive into the root cave of a tree bordering said creek. I did what any good husband would do in this situation, I paid some kid standing around a dollar to retrieve it for me
