Not That Golf

While hiking around the woods near my home I discovered a Frisbee Disc Golf course tucked away there. So today I grabbed my two frisbees that I have and headed out. My goal: find every hole. I am happy to report I met my goal.

I happened by a few other people playing. Each felt the need to tell me that there are special golfing discs that fly further, straighter, through trees or what-have-you. I was very cordial and thanked them all. I ended up playing the last 12 holes with a couple college guys. Without them I would likely not have found all the holes. Overall, I played okay, given that I was using the "wrong" discs. :)

Thanks mess. From what I saw yesterday I wouldn't disagree. Though the guys I was playing with could throw their discs twice as far as I could throw mine, they spent much of their time stomping through the woods trying to find them. If we would have kept score I don't think I would have lost by much.
