Good analogy, some people won’t get it because they came up in an era that was influenced by it and others, but remains great through subtle changes and unartogant growth.

my first time there it was the middle of the night and I was throwing at baskets I never saw and had no idea what was going on... so fun! When the sun did come up, I was even more impressed.

I got to play it when the old baskets Bill just replaced were brand new, I believe 1998. Prior to that it was an object course with hole numbers painted on target trees. I absolutely remember some of those numbers still on some trees for awhile.

Had I known about the object course I would have played it for sure, but I didn't. My parents met at a nearby lake cottage resort 50 years ago and over the years (and still to this day) have gone back multiple times each year. We were at that resort in 1989 for sure (the year I played my first basket course back home in Indiana) because I remember the insane meteor shower that summer while stargazing over the lake at night when I was 16. Man, I wish I would've known about Bill's course then so I could say I played it in its object days! And I played a bunch of object Frisbee golf as a kid. LOVED it. Loved going around and making up courses as I went. I would've totally gone and played it with my Wham-O 165.

I loved the disc golf.
Loved.
But my favorite part were the cats that followed me around for the entirety of my round.
I shot really well AND I had a couple of pals.

I played a sunrise solo round while everybody else was still asleep in their tents. I felt the exact same. Still a top 5 disc golf moment for me.

The feeling of being on that course is diff than any other course i have ever played. Its hard to explain but it must be what pure JOY feels like.

Long live Flip City

My memories of that course would have been even sweeter if one of my drives had about two inches more height at the end. I think it was #12, where I hit solid on the left edge of the cage with my tee shot as it was fading back hard to the right. It got Bill's attention, as he was down the hill in the left rough working on something. Can't wait to get back there again someday.
