I did a search on Yahoo! and all I could come up with was an Ultimate/Golf Frisbee game. It was for the Nintendo DS System. I had no idea they had any games dealing with disc golf.

There's a disc golf DS game? I had no idea.. although I can't say I expect it to be any good. I'll have to do some investigating.

Wow, that does sound terrible. I'm glad I don't have a DS, otherwise I might destroy it for fear of it turning all of the sport of DiscGolf into a waste of money and an unplayable game.

I bought a Wii when it first came out, and have been in love with it ever since. I think a disc golf game would be sweet. I read something about it before I read it here, I wanna say it was ign.com because that's where I get my video game info, but I haven't double checked.

There is a game for the Wii that came out recently called "Game Party" it is a 8-9 mini-games that you would play at a party. In this you can play "beer pong" and darts. If the can make a game that has you throwing balls in cups and darts at boards I think they can work out the accuracy of disc golf.

Originally packaged with the Wii was "Wii Sports" and in the baseball part all you do is pitch or hit, but the game is a lot of fun. With the pitching I've found the not only do button combinations change your pitch, but the angle you throw the "ball" can change too.

So, finally to my point, why wouldn't they be able to come up with an accurate disc golf game? They have plenty of "ball golf" games that work great. I thin with the Wii-mote you would be able to throw "forehand" or "backhand" or "hammer" and the game should be able to recognize that. Also if while throwing you hold either the "A" or "B" button to pick whether you want the disc to slice or hook. One of the manufactures could sponsor the game so that their discs would be used in the game and you could rotate through a bag full of choices from driver to putter, slice to roller.

Well that is my thought on the subject, whether they make a game or not, and whether it's as cool as I hope it could be...that's left to be seen.

In the PDGA renewal letter I got yesterday, a PDGA Disc Golf game for the Wii was one of the things mentioned as an exciting thing coming up for 2008. No timetable or details, just a bullet point in the list.

I don't have high hopes that the game will be any good but maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised.

LOL.. just that I doubt a lot of resources will be allocated to make this a great game since disc golf isn't the most popular sport in the world. The fact that it will be available only on the wii download services hints at the depth we can expect.

I can only imagine all the broken TV screens that will result from the wii-mote flying out of gamers' hands on those long opening drives. Ha, ha, ha!
