Weekly disc golf wrap: News and notes

Another weekend of good weather, at least in these parts!

So I hope you got the chance to get out and play and take advantage of it!

I was quite amazed with the response on our 9-hole course story this past week, so keep the comments coming on that one! We appreciate it.

Speaking of 9-holers, I had the chance to play one Friday. It was pretty wide open and I’m sure it’s the type of course that 9-hole detractors point to when talking about how they aren’t great. Still, at least it was throwing and there were baskets!

Anyway, there’s been some good stuff in the mainstream media this week, so check out this week’s golf wrap.
