calling all disc golfers.....
 
so i've noticed quite a few of my fellow home brewers are also fellow disc golfers, which of course kicks a$$. i'm sitting here cleaning up my bag, getting ready for my first outing of 2012, and i figured i'd start a new thread for us all to talk frolf.... and beer! it'd be great to have a thread where we can post pics, fun stories, gripe about lost discs and just chat about our favorite game.

i'll start the thread with what i'm throwing on the course today.....

my main discs are:
drivers: discraft avenger SS (z plastic)
discraft Xpress (z plastic)
questAT raging inferno
mids: discraft buzzz (z plastic)
ching power legacy (1st run)
latitude 64 core (optic plastic)
putts: discraft putt'r (eliteX plastic)
millennium omega

i'm taking it easy today and playing a park down the street from home (silver view), a nice li'l 9 hole with some decent obstacles and great elevation change. challenging enough to keep me on my toes and short enough to allow the kids to have some fun. for those of you familiar with the MSP area, i'll soon be getting my tags for Kaposia and North Valley parks from Fairway Flyerz. :rocking: can't wait to hit those two courses up this year!

so how 'bout it? what and where is everyone throwing this year? any good 'fish tales'? pics of the crazy places your discs have ended up? let's hear/see it!! :mug:

I frolf. My main driver is an Innova Chamion Orc. I use mostly Innova discs, but have some discraft. Only one ace in 5 years...

Just started in August. Still using a lot of Innova DX till I settle on drivers to get in premium plastic. Actually, I'm liking the DX even though I have noticed it takes more damage from trees and rocks than any makers premium. That's why I'm looking at changing drivers to more durable plastic.

For putters, I have an Innova Birdie and a Discraft Blowfly. So, one really hard one and one really soft one. The Blowfly may be a little too soft.

And a Leopard, of course.

Had a Discraft Avenger SS in their base. Skipped it into a lake. Too bad too. I liked it.

And yeah, dg and hb do seem to go together. :mug:

Been throwing the crap out of Pro Bosses. Man I can crank on them and they will not flip. Trying to get a lot of warm up rounds in before Bowling Green this year. Love the yearly pilgrimage to BG.

This will be the first year I am taking homebrew down with us! I brewed up an Oberon clone to take for the guys who are not into bigger beers. I have a Bock that I will bring down for myself and a Belgian Dark that probably will not be ready but I will bring some anyway just in case I shoot terrible and need to erase some memories (9.8% ABV should help me forget all those bad shots......)

Homebrew and Discgolf. No better combo!!

The closest course is 30 mins away and right now it's hard to get time to go. I cant wait to get back out there though, It's something I can do alone and be completely peaceful....the disc golf course is my man cave haha

I used to play a lot, particularly when I was in nashville. It has really slowed down since the friend I played with left town.

i throw a lot of latitude 64 stuff. Pretty much everything except my ions which I use for anything inside 175ish

i love their discs. i currently only have the Core midrange thanks to the creek at Bear Creek in Grapevine, TX, but it's probably my most versatile disc next to my Ching Legacy. only drawback is it's the Opto plastic, great for lights at night, but likes to hide during the day. i've also really been loving my QuestAT discs (inferno, tee bone), the dimpled edge really help in the windy MN spring.

so i started my round yesterday with a bog on a hole that anything over a 2 is unacceptable, but followed that up with a string of pars and a bird. threw 27. can't complain. it seems that i've gotten a little added speed and length of the tee, can't complain there either. :mug: i'll be heading out to play 18 in a couple hours. :rockin::rocking:

now that's just not right!! i've been playing for ~3 times that long, i've hit the basket off the tee pretty much every way that you can without it actually going in..... :o saddest part of that was a few years ago i took a buddy, who's an avid ball golfer, out for his first round of frolf. now i consider myself a decent player, i play some challenging courses and usually play under par, but this guy.... not only did he shoot a few under his first time out, but he got an ace on the 6th hole!

Bear creek stole my fuse!!! Hole 15 I think?? Threw it straight past the basket into the creek
