I’ve been a casual disc golf player for decades – which means that I’ve played maybe a dozen times in my life.
Recently, Logan has taken an interest in the sport and I’m really digging the chance to hang with him and pick up the discs again.
We’ve played a couple of courses here in Central Texas and it’s been great.
- Twin Parks in Dripping Springs is a cool Championship level course with some nice long drives and decent amount of trees. We played one round there with the whole family and had a really good time
- Zilker Park is quite possibly the easiest course I’ve ever seen with mostly short holes that are all jammed together. It clocks in at 1 mile or walking for a round of 9 holes. Logan and I played four rounds there one Saturday in some serious windy conditions.
We took a quick jaunt over to Steeplechase Park in Kyle yesterday for what is called a Difficult level course – what an understatement!
I hit four trees, landed in the creek twice and lost one disc in just three holes. I contacted more hazards in those three holes that the previous 40+ combined! I think I will play a few more rounds on some of the other courses before heading back to Steeplechase… not sure my pride can take that on a regular basis. 🙂
