I used to play at Pease Park in Austin all the time. It is where I learned. If you ever head up to AUsitn and havn't been before, your disks and a cold 6-pack with you.

Almost all are champion discs they stay cleaner than dx or pro discs. Look at the bag not the discs also i clean them every once and a while. I play about 4 times a week the weather is perfect now in houston and screw disney world id play some dg.

PS i am really good on houston courses

Agreed,its worth the extra money when buying disc...even if some are just crazy in price....We have a disc shop here that isn't crazy $$$$$... I do a bag also...some here have carts that look like they are carring luggage...

Do you buy locally or do you purchase online?

Are courses in Houston part of "regular" golf courses or stand alone for Disc Golf....4 days a week is awesome...
Disney is heaven to my 9 year old so we go all the time......Its no astroworld..but what is/was....lol

I buy mine locally at ricks darts and games or at a pro shop. Pull carts are stupid and only old men and lazy ppl use them. Almost all courses in houston are dg only not on a golf course but one in the woodlands is on a golf cource and has a discgolf pro shop.

I use a cooler that allows me to store 6 disks in 2 external sleeves. Not meant to be a disc golf bag, but works great AND allows for the transportation of alcohol while I trek it through the course.

I buy Champ. Edition Disks only as well. They last longer, and feel better in my hands. I buy them at the course, where all sales go to the maintenance of the course. I play at Sedgley Woods near downtown Philly, the 2nd oldest DG course in the country.

Hell yes!

I'd play you but I'm in Bama.

Just got done playing a round earlier today in fact preparing for a tournament this weekend.

I've been playing just over a year now and have played in about 10 PDGA sanctioned disc golf tournaments (PDGA #34155, Rated: 885 currently), hooked and loving it!

I've got nearly all champion plastic now except for my kc pro putters and rocs, gotta love them kc plastic rocs.:laugh2:

I'm throwing my destroyer, wraith and teerex 400 feet consistently now and play at the very least 4-5 times a week!

I'm currently playing in "Intermediate" class in PDGA sanctioned events. For those that do not know, the classes generally are layed out Novice, Recreational, Intermediate, Advanced and then Pro. I'm working on my game and hopefully move to the advanced level the beginning of next year and maybe by year three go pro and start rakin' in a little cash here and there.

Anyways, you don't wanna start talkin' disc golf with me cause I can stay on the subject for hours, just ask my wife and co-workers. :p

Here's some related sites you may want to check out if you havn't already:

www.pdga.com
www.discgolfers.us
www.1000rated.com
www.discgolfbirmingham.com (our local dg club, the DGB)

I believe this is either a love it or hate it sport but think everyone should atleast give it a shot. For me it was love at first sight, but then again I just love the game of golf in general and couldn't afford ball golf and/or training, so this is the next best thing and it can be VERY VERY competative. Make sure if you click the link for the pdga that you look up the course directory and find your local course and get ta playin' already!

i thought frisbees were only used as herb trays these days.
Therein lies one of the many different characteristics of "disc" and "frisbee" my friend. ;)

People who call it frisbee golf need to be slapped. ;) It is a completly different disc.

What I don't get are the dudes who come to the DG course with Utlimate Frisbee discs, and play it using them. I just kind of stand there confused. I mean, sure, it can be done, but it is not the intended purpose of an ultimate frisbee disc, nor are they suited for a course with tons of hazards and obstructions (like mine....ALL Trees. I love it).

You are right tex but I give it to them at least they are playing the game not the right way but they are playing. Who know they might love it and go out and buy some real disc and become the next ken climo.
