“My most memorable moments in disc golf so far had been watching 2 people get aces and really just seeing how the disc golf community is very respectful and helpful to others interested in the sport. Having these experiences make me want to tell people and get new people like myself into the sport, it’s a great place to meet and make new friends which can be hard to do if new to an area as an adult lol…”

Disc Golf Courses
Do you have a course that you consider your ‘home course’? Tell us about it.
I really like th course where I live in Ayden NC, unfortunately it could use better maintenance, grass tends to be high and branches in the way of flightpaths. I still enjoy the course I figure it will force me to get better if I have to get creative to avoid all the extra hazards.

Do you have any pre-round or post-round rituals that you do when you play disc golf?
Just throwing all my drivers into a field as a warmup.
Do you drink, smoke, snack, or partake in anything else while playing disc golf? What’s your go-to?
I do smoke cigarettes but since I have started playing it seems to get less and less frequent which is a good thing.
Are you just a casual disc golfer? Do you participate in any local leagues? Do you compete in disc golf tournaments?
I played one match in a doubles league and had a blast although it was like a season long doubles thing and I can’t make it every week due to work schedule. I mostly play casually with some people I met at the league and my brother got my parents to play as well as a few others. I would be more interested in one and done type of competition for now. May change in the future im still new to all this stuff.
