Reminds me of a course bagging incident. Parked in an empty parking lot at a course (not at a base), played a quick nine holes and came back to find the National Guard was mustering for a big weekend training exercise. The entire parking lot was filled with giant vehicles and huge equipment on trailers. Except for one car-width path starting at my car and leading to the exit.

Measly 235, I wish!

Only 95 within 150 miles of my zip code near New Orleans. It’s a disc golf desert around here.

It's 416 courses from my zip code in Charlotte; 453 if you include temporary and practice courses. I've played 260 of the 416.

Just hope no new courses pop up during that time, some people with the land might have during the full lock down bought baskets to set up a private pay to play course.

There's always new courses popping up. That's a good thing though, more for me to play.

Last year we were teeing the 18th hole at Dabney in Portland and noticed a bunch of people grouped in the parking lot. Got to the basket and found it was a PPD SWAT team training exercise.

Needless to say, there was no post-round aperitif---we quietly got in our cars and left.
