Default How Long for first ace...??

Just curious.. How long did you play before you scored your first ACE..

I can can only imagine how long it's going to take me if ever??? The two course I play only have a couple holes that I might call Ace holes.. and their not the short straight in kind.. There is one hole I play thats Downhill in the woods, maybe 250 feet, it starts out sort of a tunnel shot, then the baskets sits at left bottom of the hill.. Ive left it probably within two to three feet a few times.. everytime I play this hole I'm thinking maybe, maybe this is the time???

I still don't have my first and it's been 3+ years. However, when I do hit it, you will hear me down in Memphis. lol. I figure the longer you wait, the more rewarding it will be. I play an easy 9 hole course most days at lunch, and while I have hit the chains, that is as close as I have been. Honestly, for me, that one shot (sometimes more) per round when I put everything together, and the disc glides exactly how I envision it, that is what keeps me playing. I could have a crap round, but one throw can make it all good. Even if that throw isn't an ace. Which it hasn't been, yet.

This is very course-dependent. I had two in the first year, but I started and for most of that played exclusively on a very ace-friendly course. (The 2nd ace, oddly, was not there, but at my first tournament). I think all my subsequent aces have been on that course.

On the other hand, there are courses I've played hundreds of times, without an ace; and some that, if I played them everyday, I'd never have a chance.

I had my first ace after about a month of playing. 255' feet. That was 19 years ago I think, maybe 20. Its hard to remember the exact year I started. It was a dark green driver disc, model I have no clue. Wish I still had that disc.

Hit my first ace ten months in by intentionally going to a VERY short course. That was actually not very satisfying. Ten months later, I hit a 320 footer, and collected four aces in a month! Nothing since.

I have 9 aces. My longest is 265', but my first was 120' on a pretty short course.

Took me a month and a half to get my first ace and have 5 total now after 10 months. Don't worry bout aces man they will come eventually.

I just have one lonely ace that I hit about a year and a half in. Blendon Woods hole 14. Just 146', but it was a beautifully thrown anhyzer around a tree with a SSS Magic. I celebrated in front of my son and nephew as if it was a 500' ace.
