It’s been raining for the past four days. There have been a few times when I have ridden around in the car to run to the grocery store, hardware store or just to get out of the house.
I typically come in through the second entrance into the neighborhood. This brings folks right past hole 16 – which is a massive 1,100 foot hole.
As you can see in the sketch above. There is a great area to do a rock bed that spells out “Disc Golf”. Is this a good idea or great idea?
I can’t decide which it is… let me know what you think.
We are doing some work in other areas of the course. We can start making rock piles to supply the “Disc Golf” rock bed. It’ll take some lugging around and some digging out. But it’s certainly do-able. Unless this is a totally lame idea. Let me know.
What Can I Do to Help?
Ok. So, volunteer effort is where projects like this go from the “idea” phase to “reality”. Let’s get real. Let’s go from the mystic realm to the physical realm.
Non-Disc Golf Related Information: our family has recently watched the entire Marvel series of movies. I’ve realized I am a huge Dr. Strange fan. Also, I now think of myself as Quill and my wife as Gamora. I want to run around the universe with her…
Take a moment to send me a message so I can add you to the list of volunteers. Let’s do this Disc Golf Fans!
How Can I Work on my Game Right Now
Just because we’re social distancing right now – doesn’t mean we can’t figure out ways to practice. Getting out into a field is always a good way to raise our skill level and to gain an edge over our competition when Disc Golf tournaments fire back up.
I dive deep into the “Down the Fairway” show and Paul Ulibarri the player in one of my other blog posts. He is a class act and worth your time getting to know a bit more about this top pro.
This first show focuses on the most important 50 feet in Disc Golf. We all often refer to it as the “initial gap” or “the bogey maker” or “that damn tree there” or “gotta beat” or “dammit I hit it again”. Your choice on what you call it.
You might not have a goal post to throw at. But there is certainly two trees near you that can be used to work the practice routine that Paul shares with us.
Don’t let the indoors seduce you with that comfortable couch and Netflix binging. Get out and work on your game. Your future self will thank you.
Play, practice, build your game and have fun disc golf fans!
Stay safe. Stay healthy.
