Are FH primary?

My wife is from Richmond. We are planning to make an east coast trip this summer. Any recommendations? Looking to go from Richmond to Baltimore area over a week.

Nope, mostly backhand, FH where it is unavoidable but I can only get a FH out to 300' MAX on a good day. I'm a big fan of FH upshots though, that's where the Breaker makes it's money.

Great courses in the area, from north down, are
Druid Hill in Baltimore I thought was a lot of fun
Seneca is a Must Play course in the area
Clark's run/ Freedom Center is a Must Play (no drinking/smoking on the course please)
Bluemont is a good 9 holer city park with 2 baskets and 3 pads per hole. I have a soft spot for it, but it isn't as good as the must plays
Blockhouse is Must Play and has two courses
If you can get in, Hawk Hollow I've heard is Must Play
I've played the first 6 holes of Bryant Park in Richmond and it was good and I've heard the most about that one down there.

Oh I did!
I need to go back and replay Marshall one of these days actually. I enjoyed playing the Lambs more than the Lions, I thought the shots were more interesting. I haven't played the Lair at all

Well Hawk Hollow Open was interesting. I missed 3 inside the circle putts on the first 4 holes. I got it together after that, ended up shooting 937 golf, but since I started off 5-5-3-4 I felt like my round was awful.
Shout out Kevin Gleason who was on the card behind us and shot a ridiculous 51! 1066 rated!

Discs used a lot
750 PA 4
that blue 400 D1
I slipped a 750G D2 in the bag for max distance, however it's very squirrel-y so out of the 3 tee shots with it, only one worked out, probably going to take it back out of the bag.


I'm not going to be playing very much for the rest of the month as I have a metric ton of landscaping work to do. I partnered with LoCo disc golf, a wonderful TD Sully, and a generous neighbor with a fantastic piece of property and will be running my own pop up in October.

PA4 could be my favorite disc to throw right now actually. The 750 one is pretty stable, maybe a little too much, but the 400 and 400Gs are in a sweet spot where they're flying dead straight and just hovering to the ground with no fade. They'll fight out of an anny if you give them height and can hold a hyzer for as far as I can throw a putter. It's basically everything I was ever hoping for out of the Nova after watching Paul throw Novas for years. The baseline 300 and 200 ones will flip and turn, which is useful for techy wooded holes when I want to throw something softer than a comet.
I do know a lot of people don't like the rim too much - it's kind of chunky, very similar to the Gateway Magic, but I think it makes it almost lid-like, which I'm fine with.

Played a quick round with a couple friends at the temp course I've been working on for an event Oct 6.
Things I threw
D1
Firebird
740 F1
400 F2
400G F2 (I lost my old reliable pink 750 one for this slot, this one doesn't have the same magic)
400G F2 (dumb flippy get out of jail disc)
ESP Comet (beat)
ESP Comet (fresh simple infinite stamp - decent amount of starting HSS, basically dead straight)
SP Breaker
400G PA4
300 PA4
200 PA3
Stego


Course played super well actually. Obviously I can always spend more time cleaning it up, and I will this coming week but I think it's pretty much ready - "par" (What is par) 62; 6924'
I shot a 69 (nice), my friends who generally play in MA2 shot a 73 and 75
I guess you could say a drone was in my bag, but not discraft
I shot some drone flythrough of all 18 holes

If you're free next Sunday come play, should be a blast

Mine own tournament went great! Got a lot of compliments on the course, and a lot of interesting statistics from it. I shot one great round and one horrible round after I ran out of steam.
Some bag notes: slid a fresh F3 in for fairways, traded for it from a local. Seemed pretty close to my lost F2. So I was rocking F1, F2, F3, F2 in terms of stability.
Rolled with 2 comets, 1 m2. The simple ESP swirly Comets from infinite start out pretty HSS with almost no fade, just laser straight. Like a glidier, prettier Z comet.
Threw my 2019 Sexton Firebird in a pond. There are probably 5? discs in that pond from a 220' water carry haha.
