Default Disc Golf Article Ideas

I am looking for some input as to what people are interested in reading about when it comes to disc golf. I will be writing 5-6 articles on various topics and just want to be sure I am writing content that people are actually interested in.

For some personal background on me I play MPO here in Michigan and have been playing for almost 6 years. I come from a football background having played football in college for Ferris State University. I am a teacher by trade and a disc golfer by choice.

Any input is welcome! Thank you!

Basically, anyone that would be interested in reading anything disc golf related. My first article is about the top 5 courses in the state of Michigan. I am willing to write either general style articles or more in-depth articles on specific topics.

Why courses should be built in certain areas to appeal to a certain group of people, disc design, pro status etc.

Where are these articles going to be posted? I think that would make a big difference in who's going to be reading them, and therefore, what style they should be written in.

For example, a disc golf article posted on this site would be viewed by a very different audience than one posted in Time Magazine.

The above us VERY important.

I wrote a few articles for 2 of the PDGA's rags years ago and each time they "literary licensed" my articles (mis-marching captions with photos, changing words, etc.) to death. Be careful....

I would like detailed course strategy guides. Good quality illustrations of fairways, pictures of features, and a couple pro level players snippets about how they attack the hole. This would be fun for me to read to prepare for said course, for me to fantasize about playing said course, and for me to prepare to watch a major tournament round on Jomez.

Probably not what you were looking for

Otherwise disc golf history lessons would be nice. Course profiles over the years, major events in the history of the sport, stuff like that.

It must be an opinion piece? Top 5 according to whom? Have you played all of the courses in Michigan? Have a journalism background?

It might be interesting to compare the histories of a successful course and a course that failed.
