I LOVE DISC GOLF
My friend used to ask me to go play with him all the time, and I always said no because I knew I would get addicted to it...so now I'm addicted to it and play all the time and can't stop buying more discs. (iHave a problem) But as of now my discs include:
Glow in the dark Valkyrie
Disc craft Avenger
2-Aerobie Epic's (yes they are, in fact, epic.)
Some crappy floats in water putter
And my favorite disc, my disc craft Soft Banger GT putter.
I <3 Disc Golf.
I started playing in college about 5 years ago (......damn.......) and Im pretty good actually. I occasionally finish at or under par at our neighboring courses, usually about 4 over though.
here's my discs, all innova
Champion Valkyrie (2)
About 10 others i dont really use.
...Think I'll go play after work today
I've only played disc golf one time. I was horribly hung over and I puked at just about every single hole. Despite feeling like absolute shit the ENTIRE time I've never had more fun in my life (I'm exaggerating of course, but that shit was awesome).
Fuck that... Bowling is sweet.
Gotta necrobump this one, I freaking love disc golf. Been playing for about 3 years but only just started getting serious about it like 3 months ago. Actually just bought my first disc bag, I feel total pro now haha. Here's my lineup as of now:
Innova Champion Orc (2)
Only place that sells discs only carries Innova, haha. I'm going to be ordering a couple more online soon, I'm thinking an Innova Star Boss and maybe another mid-range.
I've been playing about 7 years. I mostly throw Innova Champion and Star plastic, but I do like DX for things like the Roc, XD, and Aviar. I'm one of those people with 6 Rocs at varying levels of being broken in.
Charlotte is disc golf heaven for anyone looking for a challenge. The World Championships are here this year. There are also some large tourneys that are here every year.

Every player within driving distance needs to come down and play Renaissance, Hornet's Nest, Nevin, and Winthrop. There's also about 15 other courses within an hour, many of which are worth your time as well. If you make a trip shoot me a PM and I'll come meet you for a round, you'll need a guide at Renny your first time anyway.
Renny is an experience that should not be missed by any avid player. Here is a video tour of the "easy" course. There is also a "gold" course that is much longer. It has changed a bit since the video, but this will give you an idea.
Here's the "easy" course at Hornet's Nest, there is a run with much more difficult pin placements here as well. The back 9 is really tricky, this video is from like 2005 but was reuploaded in 2010. The trees are way thicker now than in the video.
Lost my champion "Bistaneau Boss" that I found under ice at lake Bistaneau =(. But I finished our Cross Lake course at 2 over recently, that's FAR better than I've ever done there before.
Here's a pic of my buddy Josh teeing off at hole 8, lake Bistaneau in Doyline, La. That's right, 888ft! I don't have the arm to get there in less than 4 =(
I figured I might as well get to listing out what discs I use since my bag has finally stopped changing all the time. So I guess its time to revive this thread.

How many of you guys throw side arm? how many throw back hand? I am just curious to know. I throw mainly side arm, but I want to work on my back hand drives.
