/DGG/ Disc Golf General>What is disc golf?Its golf but with frisbees or discs. Generally played at parks that have free courses.>What do I need to get started?A disc and some shoes to walk around comfortably. (You should probably also bring some water anon and maybe download UDisc for a scorecard, or print / make your own)>I'm new what disc should I buy?Pretty much any decent frisbee or disc will get you out and playing. Don't buy a starter set immediately, instead buy an innova skeeter as its a pretty easy to throw disc for a beginner and then buy more discs from there.>Are there courses around me?Almost certainly, check https://www.dgcoursereview.com/ for a pretty comprehensive list of courses and recommendations as to what ones near you are good.>I bought a starter set and cant throw these things straight or far at all!Go onto youtube and lookup guides idiot. Also learn to throw your putter first. It's most likely the easiest disc to throw in your bag and just because it doesnt fly as fast as a fairway or driver disc, It'll probably fly farther as It WILL fly straighter.Most people you meet out on a disc golf course are gonna be pretty chill guys who'll either help you out if u get a disc stuck in a tree, or even give u a quick tip if you're new.Feel free to post photos from your local courses or discs.
Picked this up as a hobby recently. Pretty fun time.
Why are these goals so fucking ugly? Who is responsible for these eyesores?
Only on 4chan would golf be considered an extreme sport
It's finally getting nice enough that I can go out! I'm in the new river valley in the US and there are a few courses that are just absolutely gorgeous. I'll take some pictures if it's warm enough to go this weekend.
>>19683Where did you find this atrocity of a photograph?>tone mapped to shit>fuck-off CA>crooked>off centerMakes me associate your thing with vomit.
>>19683>hippie disk golf>extreme Yeah right
>>19757>>19886Well with /asp/ gone there really isn't a home for discussion on this fun . I'm curious as to where else OP should post this general if not here.
>tfw left my discs in my car and they all got warpedFuck
Truth > Buzzz >>>>>> Roc
Anyone got tips on the best thing to keep in your bag for getting a disc out of a tree?
>>21453I've heard slingshot, lacrosse ball, baseball are effective
>disk golf>extremeback to /asp/ faggots
>>21453golf ball or tennis ballnever throw another disc to get one unstuck, that was my brothers way of doing it and it drove me crazy>>21153fuck yeah dudei miss my 3 truths, one beaten to shit emac, one brand spankin new and the other only had a year of use on it
>>21453>>21455I keep one of these in my bags and seems to work pretty well when it's happened https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07HVMVM49/
>>21457/asp/ is dead. where else are we to go?
>>22047Don't respond to their shitty bait, as long as Marbula 1 gets to be here, so does /dgg/
has anyone tried to play a round with a big kahuna before, or any other very large and heavy disc? If so was it a good learning experience?
>>22292probably not, disc weight directly affects how it flies so if anything you'll just get good at throwing that disc specificallyi find that doing mid range and putter rounds are the figurative twin to the "kung fu weighted clothing" so to speak
Bump for Discraft gang

>>22648Whats in ur bag homie?
>>23214Kush and an Aviar
>>19757We play with sawblades.
>>19757The extreme part is trying not to get caught by a park ranger while drunk or high
>>21453I use a fatmax tape measure
Who do you guys have winning Waco? I think Eagle edges out McBeth and Heimburg late.
>>24584>he fell for the PDGA memesorry bud this sport is at its peak when ur drunk in a public with your boys trying not to snipe a kid on his razor scooter with your driver
this is the ultimate stoner sport
>>25957This is the ultimate sport, fren
>>25140based and redpilled
>>21453slingshot and some buck shot / gravel
>>21455>>21461>>27360are you not worried about damaging a disc with a direct hit?
>>27379It's that or leave it in the tree. They're pretty tough and resistant to impacts so it doesn't hurt them too bad.
>>27379the most expensive disc in my bag is $15. I'm never super scared of damaging one. I end up buying a new set every other year.
>>28023speaking of disc prices, imagine spending more than $20 for a disc
>>25957Took my dog out with me yesterday. I guess he ate someone's joint roach. He threw up in the kitchen in the evening and it smelled like weed; he was so high he couldn't stand up straight. He slept like a rock.
>>27379nah dude discs are made to hit trees a certain amount of times, they can handle a golf ball hit
>>19683great game to play while on LSD
>>28039I dont even think I could name a $20 disc of the top of my head If asked
>>28270Custom dyes from dd start at $30 but that's a specialty case. pix not my disc
>>28039>>28270The most i've paid was 25 i think. They found more first run d-line p2:s so i got one for myself. The 25 might've included shipping though, can't remember.
I had to skip this hole for fear of damaging a bird
>>28694All birds deserve the rope.
>>28694Just float putt instead of spin putt ez
>>28694to be fair thats a fucking retarded spot for a hole.
>>28694Bumping for anon who actually posted a photo of him out on course
when i first started playing, i had a sudden need to poop one time and pooped 40 long of the basket thinking no way could anyone throw that farit was like a 500' par 4
If you can’t throw 400ft you are a faggot. Innova Corvette goes further and straighter than the Destroyer.
>>30728dude throws a corvette and calls other people fags lmao
>>30728valkrie and discraft xs
All these people grilling my 400+ throw. You will never out drive me. You shoot over par consistently. I will throw my innova corvette every day. You probably only started playing last year. You probably think Brody Smith is cool.
>>31944sounds like puttlet cope to me
>go to secluded little 9-hole in the woods, my little zen spot>doesn't get much traffic normally>3 dudebro fags screaming and swearing can be heard the whole course overFUCKUNGROW THE SPORT
>>32320>me and my boys get absolutely shitfaced before our round>having a great time dicking around and hitting each other with my Big Kahuna>some faggot virgin starts crying a couple of holes over because we had the audacity have fun
Looing for a new full set, anyone has a decent rec?
>>33826Are you a beginner? I just started this year and I got the Innova DX set and it's pretty solid for a new guy.
>>33826>teebird in preferred plastic>buzzz/roc3 in preferred plastic>whatever putter feels good in your hand
>>32320based dudebros gettin' rowdy
>>33826Just get a Lat 64 Pure and throw that until you can pick a line and hit it
What's the consensus on paid courses? Anyone tried them or think they're worth it?
>>37466they switched to paid courses in madison, wi. people switched to playing illegally and not playing at all. i cant REALLY blame them. sure theres an upfront cost to putting in the baskets, but the upkeep on a disc golf course is about the same a city park anyway, and already covered by taxes. it was viewed as milking the public.
>>37466if it's on private property it's w/eif its on park land i just park and don't payno one's watching the box anyways
>>37466I’ve played a few and they were a lot of fun but idk how often I’d play if a majority were pay to play. If it’s a large course and it’s cheap I’ll probably play more often than not i mean a course like delaveaga charges $2 for parking which is nothing considering the caliber of course it is
bunny on the course
-60' hole lol
would be a SHAME if your disc got stuck here (I threw it right in and it happened...)
Which holes would you be interested in seeing? Courses are a bitch right now, basically if you have non-neon colored discs you can kiss them goodbye. Lost one of mine last weekend but found someone else's too.
>>38376what are you afraid of getting doxxed with people knowing what course youre at? the only people who would give a fuck are disc golfers, and ones close enough to drive by and honk at you will recognize that map anyway.whats the point?
Got one of these last weekend too. I'm a lot better at keeping midranges from turning so I hope this one will do.
>>27379Have you not winced every time you whack a tree at full power? It can handle a slingshot.>>28203I can't handle it on LSD but shrooms/weed are absolutely great for going out and shooting 10 or 12 holes >>28694>river right next to the basketfuck that>>30728fuck off innova is shit, pic related>>31944guarantee you shout obscenities when you miss a 15 foot putt>>32320>>32326kek>>37466haven't played any but fuck that if it's on park property. I pay taxes for the parks like anyone else. >>38377Yeah I don't know why I did that, just habit. It's Christiansburg VA if anyone wants to come throw.
>>38379>Have you not winced every time you whack a tree at full power? It can handle a slingshot.true, but thats less energy over a bigger area. a slingshot has a ton of energy packed into a tiny surface area. more inclined to dent or damage imo.
>>38380>less energy over a bigger areaI'd disagree, the point of contact when you whip a disc into a tree is only a very small part and at the very rim of the disc. It very rapidly yet elastically shrinks and expands to withstand the load (of which is however fast you threw it at a tree, which isn't necessarily a completely inelastic surface either but much more unforgiving than the disc if sufficiently large) and the area affected is a relative edge. When you shoot a slingshot or throw a baseball at a stuck disc, you're much more likely to hit a face which is a much larger area. I can't speak for the speed of the slingshot but I wouldn't use anything super fast obviously, and my projectile wouldn't be anything heavier/more damaging than a tennis ball.
>>38381a tennis ball or baseball would be fine, just too big for a lot of slingshots.when im using a slingshot im thinking of either stainless ball bearings in various sizes, or rocks from pea gravel size on up to around a pingpong ball size.carrying a baseball in our disc bag is what me and my buddies did when we played alot.
>>38382yeah I wouldn't use any of those small things, agreed. but how about something like this eh? I used to pitch baseball but even I can't be fucked to throw a baseball up and down like a twat until I succeed
>>38383>the picfucken kek when i get a dog again im getting that shit. looks better than the stick.as for your question though, now im wondering how much of a pita it might be to carry that fucker around for 9 or 18 holes.
>>38384my dad has one and he sits in a chair shooting it left and right in his backyard to his dog, she brings it back, he shoots it again further, sips his beer, and repeat. he says it's one of the best things he ever bought since he has a bum throwing shoulder. don't know if I'd carry it around either though. I only carry a cheap little drawstring bag with 6 discs in it so I don't have the room. Would probably have to get a dedicated bag as well if I got one. imo the shape is worse than the weight.
>>38385yea it looks like it weights like 1-2lbs, but its not compact at all. youd need a backpack for it.
>>38376do people actually play with anything not absurdly coloured?
>>38443the disc I picked up for someone was very standard burnt orange and black. Was shocked I found it so close to an open area but also not because it was a silly color to have now or in the autumn.personally mine are all bright pink or neon yellow/green aside one of my putters which is red.
>>19840>It's finally getting nice enough that I can go out!I played all winter, grow a pair of balls!
>>21453yeah, they're called tree branches, perhaps you can find out out there
>>2803925 for some glows, that's about the top
>>38379I fucked a prodigy f7 with two throws directly into a tree, damn near bent it in half. that 200 plastic is like play doh.
Posting a few holes from today that made me upset because the holes are innawoods and you will hit many trees
Gonna go to a roanoke course next week. This shit made me mad with how many trees I was hitting and how I could never unleash a solid drive. Fun course if you want to midrange the whole time and try for birdies but anything more will be frustrating.
Anyone ever go to one of these 3?The top 2 look pretty open and less innawoods
>>39286Some parks put the baskets up for winter
>>39729>he lives somewhere he can't play 365 days a year
Went to Greenfield and did the first 9, very open, good mix of holes. Overall pretty good and would do again. Fields could be kept better but the course structure is good.
>dislocated my knee right before a week off of work. Welp there goes my week 9 holes a day + fieldwork.
Gonna play tomorrow anyone got recommendations for hidden gems in the bay area?
>>43225yeah I hear that Moraga Commons is hugely slept on.
wouldn't disc golf be better with ninja stars instead of a frisbee? smaller, faster, and deadlier
since when is throwing a frisbee extreme?
>>44535Ninja Star like discs may have a higher rpm but they would be severely lacking in ability to fly the distances needed to do anything but putt
>>44610the extreme part is the friends we make along the way
Anyone going to the masters cup in Santa Cruz next weekend?
>>46634i'm not it's too farmight stay home and jerk off desu
You did get out and play this weekend right /dgg/?
>>21153Gotta look into those. I've had a Roc for years but use a Shark to get through tighter spaces
>>25140This desu. Disc golf doesn't need normalfags watching it on tv
>>37466There's a state park nearby that I get an annual pass for. It has four courses and they're pretty well maintained.
>>48920Just started. I've played damn near every day this past week. My mid-range and putting game is decent, but I haven't been able to throw consistent drives yet. Any tips?
>>49680put your whole body into it. you should feel it in your legs as well as your arm.
>>49681Yea that's what I'm seeing in videos I've been watching. One thing I've noticed is that my shoulder can get pretty fucking soar after a round. That might be due to me not following through after the throw. Thanks.
>course was super fucking dusty todayGod I hate living in California
after throwing a mate's starter set around and chugging beers at a local park, I'm kinda enjoying this stuff. I didnt like how I cant yeet them though, it seems like no matter how hard I chuck it, they dont go very far? then again my only comparison I guess is a leopard.So anyway I just bought a innova pulsar, what am I in for?
>>50614>chugging beers at a parkNo fun allowed at the ones near me, though maybe the paid state park is more relaxed about that>not throwing very farsee above, there is a level of athleticism involved, put your whole body into it especially rotating the hips and shoulder>pulsarIs this bait? I'm sure you can use a disc meant for ultimate frisbee, but I'd think you'd want to get other discs to compliment the starter set you got (different glide, turn, and fade ratings for now)
>>19683Frisbee of all things is not an extreme sport, yo. Especially not if you remove the dog.
>>50874It's only open container if you get caught anon.I also can't believe a retard bought an ultimate disc expecting to use it as a driver.
>>50874yeah I got the 3 disc starter on amazon that I was already using.last game I played I only used I think a shark as a "driver" and then some putter disc. I was mostly just 1 over par. I guess I'm alright with making it go where I want it but it never goes as far, and the driver I tried once just goes terminally left which I believe is fade or something to do with disc rotational speed.I'm going to use this big ass disc and no ones gonna stop me, its pdga approved anyhow :^)and yeah last park I went to there was a sign that said alcohol was not allowed within 30ft of parking lot, so I assume that means its fine after that. >>50902is there a problem with using it as a driver? aside from trees
>>50882You're not the first retard to say this, but /asp/ is dead.>>50924And no, if you're just getting into disc golf, your first disc should probably be something that you can get acquainted with, so something that flies straight will be fine. It's why people recommend a putter like an Aero or even a mid-range like a Shark or Cobra.
>>38384shits got a fucking arm brace. dont tell the ATF
>>50882the extremeness of sports is measured primarily by marijuana intake, so...
>>21153I hated both. Why the fuck would you want an overstable disc for anything less than a four hundred foot drive with badass wind?The leopard is the light.
I decided to get a couple putters today for my grandfather and father since Father's day is coming up. Thanks for reading my blog.
>>19886It is when you play during a severe thunderstorm.
>>51708what models and what weights?
>>49680Grip/release did me the most harm when I first started. Understable discs + focusing on G/R + putting form before power all helped me hugely. If you play a wooded course, try somewhere wide open where you can really put the beans on your drives. Fear of losing discs built up from starting out playing a wooded course fucked me for a while on my drives and got me out of my head when I should have been focusing on the plane of my shot and G/R. >pic related: Rosedale Down Under
>>53273fugged up the last img
>>52673I got a Latitude 64 Pure and a Kastaplast Reko. I also got the Innova Whale to get my mother into disc golf.
>>53273I'm glad I got some overstable discs for forehand shots, but yeah, I'm glad I started with a leopard for backhand.
>>55144The leopard is one of my favorite all-rounders. My bag is like seven leopards, a putter, and some meme discs.
>>55274For me it's the Wraith
Any recommendations for bags? I've got a backpack that I can carry everything I need and then some, but if there's a bag out there that works with a nalgene hydration pack in addition to the room for plenty of discs, I would consider getting it.
>>57339Im a big fan of the Latitude 64 swift as I typically only carry about 12 discs with me when I play
>tfw everyone on your card is impressed by a forehand cut roller
>>57661I've never been impressed when someone threw a roller. Its a total nigger way to play imo.
