That wheelchair would have to be ridiculously nimble and better have a seatbelt.

I'm not sure what kinda of disposable income you have or any idea how much these cost but this would be an ideal chair for disc golf as well. Awesome to hear that our are enjoying this sport.

I've just started talks with a local coach that wants to put on an event to showcase disc golf as a handicapped athlete friendly sport. We have a local city park course where the front half is pretty flat and for the most part is handicapped accessible. We have one hole that has a bridge that wheel chairs can't cross. They would have to tee off and take a walking path out to the street with a culvert under it allowing them to cross the water and then come back to the fairway. Not ideal but doable.

I throw from a stand still. My knees basically lock and it's a bit of core rotation and strong arming. I get 275' consistent on good days. On bad days I have put my cart on the tee pad and throw seated, similar form, but the back of the chair stops any follow through, so I don't get near the distance. Some sort of stool, or the device kenjiac would work much better.

Here's a pic of my "cart" it's actually a recumbent trike, due to hip problems I can't ride a regular bike. This is not the solution for hilly courses, but where I'm from it works on almost all of them. Don't mind the plastic bag, it was to keep my 4 year old from playing with the chain.
