[QUOTE=Three Putt;30134]I can remember getting up early and hitting the road with some friends so that were were at Albert Oakland by daybreak, then going on to Kansas City to play Swope, Waterworks and the two courses at Rosedale. Then just for fun we stopped at the safari course in Mexico on the way home. At the time those were the only courses we could play in that area. When we got home it was dark, so we played a round of glow at White Birch. Seven courses and over 400 miles.

But in some ways it gets better. The kids are pretty much grown up and gone. My wife is perfectly happy to stay home and read plus then she doesn't have to drive around and find courses with me. She's content to send me off on my own little disc golfing excursions. I just wished I lived somewhere more centrally located. Here in the Seattle area, I've done east into Idaho and south into Oregon. Most of the courses in the Pacific Ocean have too much of a water hazard for me and British Colombia is not exactly a disc golf course hot spot.

I guess I could just do the math, but isn't there an algorithmn or something that could be put in that automatically renumbers people based on the stat selected.

With this, I think the true male competative geekdom would come out and that would be awesome!!!
Not so sure that's a great idea. Do we really want jackholes marking a bunch of courses played (that they haven't really played) just so they can see their name on the first page? Or faking a started playing date? Or spewing "nice work" to every dye job thread to jack post counts?

No, and neither does anyone else - however I believe you are talking about .1% of the idiots out there. Everybody I have encountered so far that deals with this site - does it because these love the sport, and want to enjoy it. The site already does this in some aspects, I just thought simply that it would be interesting to add a number in front of it as yet another cool feature.

Hopefully this year I can get lots of new courses in. It's great to use this site to find courses to places I'll be traveling. Since I don't travel just for DG, I think it'll take me 6 or 7 years to hit 100 different courses.

I'll drop down another spot then. And I won't ever be catching you. You'll be right there with the leaders. Congrats!

Default i'm at 100 but it shows 98

thanks for this thread i don't think i would have thought to look at it that way, i've made the second page i have played 100 which was my goal to reach by the new year but two of them are not on here. Soon enough though i will be knocking out more courses and move up a few spots.

Are they two extinct courses or two courses that aren't on here?
