Re: Disc Golf

I got out for a practice round while our club managed to take 1st place in a multi-club challenge the next state over. My back is still a bit tight, so I'm taking it slow. I stuffed my bag back in my cart so I have a place to rest anywhere I go if needed. I usually just use the bag with no cart as they're made to be separated depending on your needs. I started getting some form of tendonitis in my left elbow from pulling it for years so I stopped using it that way. Back to it now for a little bit.



Basket Cases 1st Place!

Re: Disc Golf



I guess the bottle should be blue plastic..but that's bad for the environment..
.
Looks like you have a shop full of disc's, so they would be heavy to lug about.
Tendonitis you need to repair thoughly before you go back to using it again. I broke a tendon in my left hand ring finger ..digging out the impossible.
Club done well then to come 1st, cant get any higher...
Backs know about them and all, but hey, getting tedious comparing scars..
I'm off to play with the weeds...

Re: Disc Golf

lol nice pic

It's been well over a year since I used my cart, and I kinda missed it. Makes it easier to lug all that beer (and discs) around.

Re: Disc Golf

A little video someone created of one of the parks near me. 50 Acre Park in fabulous Evergreen Park, IL. Notice the carved sculpture of Groot and Rocket, as well as the Cranes:



It's really a stunning course and excellent use of the property.

Re: Disc Golf

The city of Chicago is getting it's first ever full 18 hole disc golf course, located in Hyde Park, which was also the location of the 1893 Worlds Fair. I've been in touch with the director and had expressed my willingness to donate my prized Hole #14 basket that came from the Lemon Lake Disc Golf complex, which has a rich disc golf history. It is my honor to be able to put this basket in the ground and also to be the the person to have the inaugural first throw at it. We've made arrangements for this coming Saturday.

Cheers, and thanks Di.

I think they're dong a bit of a ceremony, so there will be some pics. My scribble wouldn't be worth the material it's scribbled on. lol I'd wait a bit on that one.

Re: Disc Golf

I'll be DJ'ing this event for the 4th time.



It takes place inside the grounds of the Old Joliet Prison. If you've ever watched the movie The Blues Brothers, then you've seen the front gate where Jake is released at the beginning of it. Quite a few other things have been filmed there as well, like the series Prison Break and a few others. It's a decent temporary 18 hole course we set up throughout the property, and it's been scaled back a bit due to some of the buildings becoming unsafe from erosion. We get players from all over the US that come out just for the unique experience it holds. Looking forward to it. Here I am at the helm at last years event:
