"I think some women might have been a little intimidated," Severy said, "but I'm hoping that a lot of the women who do play will come out and see us play and see that there are all of these different levels, and that it's OK for them to play in tournaments, too."

Sabattus, ME
Ashley Severy is everything you'd expect from a casual disc golfer: Humble, down to earth — and so busy she has a hard time finding room in her schedule to play as often as she'd like. But this week — this whole summer — Severy and several other Maine women have carved ex...

Disc golf courses in wooded settings cause damage to the trails and major damage to trees. Numerous studies have shown the negative impact disc golf courses have in wooded areas—soil is compacted, vegetation is disturbed and several courses have been closed to prevent erosion and damage. The Pinto Lake golf environmental impact report is a prime example of damage done by disc golf courses in environmentally sensitive areas.

#NIMBYISM
Griffin Park in Bellevue is a natural wooded setting and home to deer, elk, moose, the occasional mountain lion and black bear and all the critters who rely on the habitat it provides. A trail through the park provides access to the river and is enjoyed by hikers, mountain bikers, preschoolers who spend time in the woods, kids hauling rafts to the river or heading there to build teepees out of fallen wood or creative placement of stones for art, ...

Let's not forget the environmental impact of traditional golf courses. Water, fertilizer and mowing for 3x the acreage. If you removed a disc golf course from an area nature would reclaim it in just a few years. That would not be true for a traditional golf course.

An 18-hole golf course is in the works in Austintown. It's not a traditional golf course, but disc or Frisbee golf.

“The best part of playing with Caleb is his positivity,” Clumper said. “He challenges players to try new things and motivates them to stay positive when things don’t work.”
For many, the sport of disc golf is a relaxing afternoon pastime — but for environmental studies junior Caleb Wilkins, disc golf is a lifestyle.

He supervised 30 to 35 other Scouts and volunteers who helped him build the course, clocking about 110 service hours. During the work time, the group trimmed trees, mixed and installed the concrete for the posts holding the baskets, and installed the starting tees. Materials were paid for by Georgetown Township.

“I think it’s about participation, getting kids out, you don’t need a bunch of equipment. It’s not high impact sport compared to volleyball or basketball. It’s a pretty low maintenance kind of sport.”

This is awesome news. This is one of the first three courses I played when I started, back in ohhhhh 2006 ish. I played here when they only had one course and were working on the second. Glad to see them have great success in the DG community.

"The course is going to be a mix of long and short and really technical-type holes," Dobies said. "I think it'll be really cool. People have said it will be on par or better than the Waterloo (State Recreation Area) course (in Grass Lake)."

Jackson, MI
A disc golf course next to the Ella Sharp Park Golf Course off Fourth Street is expected to be open by summer 2017.

Further, with a little creative thinking, local leaders can come up with a better disc golf location (i.e. less poison oak hazards). There are places, including some in the same part of town, that could accommodate this particular use. With new leadership coming on board at Hood River Valley Parks and Recreation District, this would be a good time to assess potential new locations as part of a variety of parks discussions that are ongoing.

The Steamboat and Oahe disc golf courses were 20 holes a piece. The Hilgers Gulch course was 13 holes — the proper number of holes for a round of disc golf to be rated by the Pro Disc Golf Association. All four rounds held at Hilgers Gulch were rated by the PDGA, Putzier said.

Pierre, SD
About 50 people from across the state and a few people from Iowa and Florida came to Pierre over the weekend for the South Dakota State Disc Golf Tournament.

"The number of disc golf courses in Ontario has nearly doubled since we installed Sandy Hollow three years ago and we'd love to get more courses in the ground," Cole said. "Disc golf is a great way to enhance and transform a green space at very minimal cost — approximately $15,000 to $20,000 — and with virtually no environmental impact."
