I’ve been getting into Disk Golf recently after playing on some of the courses in Colorado. It is a nice way to get out in nature and have fun with friends. As a beginner I have noticed that it is pretty easy to miss the fairway and spend lots of time looking for disks and getting them out of trees. It is all part of the fun.
Here’s some pictures taken at the start of a disk golf course in Boulder Colorado. The prairie dogs have their town located very close to the course and there were fences and gates on the course to keep them from taking over the park. These prairie dogs are fun to watch.
Here’s a few pictures of another course in Longmont, Colorado. There is a hawk on the telephone pole that was watching us play.
This was a nice long throw off the top of a little hill towards the tee. The sunset was looking very grand and the disks sailed off gracefully into the tall grass. There wasn’t a fairway per say, unless you count some intermittent bare patches and trails where the weeds and grass were not growing.
Luckily I keep a pretty good eye on where my disk landed and recovered it easily. It was not so easy to find my son’s disk which had some conflicting reports on its landing location. At one point there were four of us wandering around looking for it and getting pricked by the taller weeds. We eventually found the disk before the sun went down but that kind of ended things for that evening.
It was such fun that I got really interested in playing disk golf more and purchased a few disks. Maybe they weren’t the best choices for a beginner but they felt good in my hand. I want to get a few more that are easier to throw too. Here’s a screen capture of my UDisk application on my phone that shows which disks I have. I like to use this application to find courses and track scores.
There were a lot of good disk golf courses in the area and it was fun to play different ones around the country. My son even aced a basket on another course in Boulder.
Thanks for reading! I always value your support and comments. The pictures were taken by me with my Galaxy S9+.
