As the seasons shift in both hemispheres (though it’s different from the northern to the southern), it brings on the question of wondering when everyone likes to play disc golf.
Of course the diehards won’t care. But what about everyone else?
Let’s hold off on that question for a moment. Before the summer, we posted a poll asking what all of your plans were for that season. We left the poll up for the full summer to allow people to answer it as they went along.
A total of 228 people voted in this poll, in which you were allowed to select up to three options.
The winner? Playing courses they’ve never played, which scored 134 votes (59 percent).
Second place went to play more casual rounds (122 votes/54 percent), followed by more tournaments (91 votes/40 percent), disc golf road trip (87 votes (38 percent), help design/build/install a disc golf course (41 votes/18 percent), play in leagues (36 votes/16 percent), play in states I’ve never played before (31 votes/14 percent), run a league (12 votes/5 percent), run a tournament (11 votes/5 percent) and play in worlds (9 votes/4 percent).
That now lends to this question — did you succeed in your disc golf plans for the summer?
If you did — or didn’t — drop a note below with your answer to our new question.
We only had a couple of people respond beyond voting in that poll, so let’s see what they had to say.
For me I said more casual rounds, which no one should construe as not as much or not as seriously. I’m recuperating from that shoulder surgery and taking baby steps continuing to follow the regimen that the Doc & PT set me on. So I’ve been playing every other day since they gave me the go ahead. I’m playing best shot with the wife and we are playing from the short tees. I’ll continue with that until I can get my old distance back. I don’t expect that to happen for quite some time. So no tourneys or leagues this year.
When I said seriously, I only mean that I have a passion for the game and I like to play my best with every shot. But it also doesn’t escape me that I’m only a legend in my own mind.
That said There are a lot of quality courses we haven’t played that aren’t far from us and we do like to travel. We haven’t played any of the courses in Canada and we live less than a mile from the Lewiston-Queenston Bridge.
Mostly my plan is, heal the arm and have fun doing it. Like I’ve said, just throwing Frisbees in the park.
Hopefully the healing of the shoulder is going well and more distance is returning to your throws!

I’m going up to Pennsylvania this coming weekend for my brother’s wedding, and we have some big disc golf plans – 5+ days and 10+ courses in PA and WV, the vast majority of which I’ve never played before! I’m really looking forward to it. My plane gets in at 2 on Saturday, and we’re going straight from the airport to the course. Should be a good time.
I’m looking forward to the wedding, too, of course.
That sounds like one heck of a 10-day plan and here’s to hoping that it went perfectly (the disc golf and the wedding)!
And now to the new poll.
We want to know — what’s your favorite season to play in? Is it the hot of the summer? The crisp of the fall? The cold of the winter? The beauty of the spring?
The best part is there could be so many different reasons. Those in hotter climates may enjoy the winter because it’s slightly cooler. But those in the north may not like the winter so much because trudging through snow isn’t necessarily a fun thing.
So vote below. And drop a comment explaining why you chose what season you did. It could be interesting to see some responses.
