Default Newbie (Complete Newbie To The Game!)

Hello my names Aaron, I live in Louisiana. I found the sport a couple months ago by accident driving through a park. Starting looking into it and then found another course close by. I use to play golf but it got to be too expensive. Hoping to get started soon and may have found a new and cheaper hobby!

Welcome to the club man! Sounds like you just need a couple (read literally 2, or a very small amount) of discs and to hit the course! If you haven’t gotten discs yet, you’ll get many opinions. If you ask around on here I’m sure you’ll find someone willing to part with a couple good ones to start for a fair price. PM me if you want, I could probably hook you up.

Hello my name is Andy. I live in Greenville SC. My 27 yr old son introduced me to disc golf about 2 months ago in Hickory NC. I've been practicing by myself so far but am ready to branch out and maybe join the local club (Upstate dgc). I met a player this weekend at Emerald Isle Woods Park NC(9 holes) and he suggested joining the doubles weekly play. Does this sound like a good idea for a newbie? (I'm a little shy and don't like to look too foolish)

I would try it at least once. I was also a bit reticent to try these when I first started not wanting to cramp someone else's game but most of the guys out there probably started playing those at the same stage you are. Like anything else in life, you will find some that are fine with it and some that might be annoyed but Dubs nights are a great way to learn the game. Just let your partner know that you are a noob and not to expect much. It will likely change the way they play one way or another. Plus, you might get paired up with someone that isn't much better than you and you guys can just have some fun.

Just remember to not pick up your disc unless you are absolutely sure you will be playing from your partners lie and use a marker disc before picking up a putter to finish out just in case.


Welcome to the addiction...

Another thing you might want to do, is go to PDGA website and read thru the rules. Most dubs nights are fairly casual as long as you aren't doing something blatant but still its good to have at least a basic understanding of the rules.
