Default How many disc golfers also play ball golf?

Disc golf is by far my favorite sport, but I occasionally enjoy a round of ball golf as well. I'm curious to see how many people participate in both sports.

I'd much rather play disc golf but I like to play ball golf when I have some extra money. Still trying to decide which game is more frustrating to me though.

I played ball golf for about 2 years in college and I was a near scratch golfer shooting in the mid to high 70s but I havent touched a club since I picked up a disc. DG is way more fun.

Default not scratch

FYI BraveThrower...mid to high 70s, depending on the course, is more like a 5-10 handicap in ball golf, not scratch.

Have played ball golf for 35 years, disc for 5...like them both.

Well, Tokinator420, not enough to make it a stereotype, unlike other things lots of disc golfers partake in. Huh huh.

Yes to ball golf! It's so much easier to carry my beer cooler on the cart. I carry around my 7 iron like a redneck from NC who can't hit with any other club. I don't even need a set of clubs, just 1 bad-ass 7 iron.

I do. Played ball golf in High School and a little in college. I play about 6 times a year now. Putting and chipping are rusty, but the rest of the stuff is pretty mcuh still there even though i don't play alot.

Now to get disc golf to that level of consistency.

I would give him "near scratch" if his handicap was 5. It's certainly a lot nearer than my handicap would be if I had one.

I like to play both, but my budget and limited free time make disc golf much more practical to play. I also find traditional golf FAR more frustrating than disc golf.
