Every hole on the course feels grand but none more so than No. 18. Houck has designed more than 90 courses around the world, more than anyone living today. This is his favorite finishing hole anywhere.

Columbia, MO
Since 2012, when the Columbia Disc Golf Club approached world-renowned course designer John Houck to create a championship course at Strawn Park in Columbia, the thinking behind the Harmony Bends Championship Disc Golf Course has always been the same.

"I'm old, but other than that there was nothing tough about it," Stokely said of his comeback. "I had gave away all my discs. I hadn't played in 13 years — except for one week — and I never thought I'd play again."

A bunch of media for +Scott Stokely.

Scott came to Tyler Texas a couple of weeks back on his Blue Power tour. He is working to raise awareness and money for autism and children with special needs. I had the pleasure of playing against him in a doubles event and had a blast. Couple that with Scott providing a pro clinic and it was an experience to remember. If he is coming to your area, please help to support him for this worthy cause.

"It's definitely been popular for a while and we're just starting to catch on now in New England," said Dennis Grzywacz, owner of Salmon Falls Disc Golf Course, in Rochester. "Some of that might be demographic. but I think there are many reasons why people are attracted to the game: it's low-impact, it's affordable. .I know everyone from police officers to lawyers to dads to your stereotypical potheads like to play the game. And it's definitely become more recognized as legitimate."
An estimated 8 to 12 million players have played disc golf - also known as Frisbee golf or Frolf - and 2 million are estimated to be regular players, according to the Professional Disc Golf Association.

2017 PDGA Masters World Championships
The first ever Masters World Championships will be contested in Grand Rapids, Michigan and will be hosted by proposed TD John Norkowski #36436 and the Grand Rapids Dogs of Disc organization. In addition to the LOC, the West Michigan Sports Commission, Grand Rapids City of Special Events, City of Grand Rapids Parks and Recreation Department, Plainfield Township, and Kent County Parks and Recreation Department, will all play a hands on role in ensuring the championship is a success. The LOC will operate under the name of River City Disc Golf LLC for the championships, and with consultation from Larry LaBond #6903, John Norkowski and Rick Marrit Jr #51283., they have vast experience in hosting PDGA Major events.

Riverside Park will be the featured course, while other courses to be used in the event include Fallasburg Park, a new track at Grand Rapids Rotary Park North, two courses at Earl Brewer Park and Johnson Park. Home of the 1997 PDGA Amateur World Championships, Grand Rapids is an area flooded with disc golf, and the LOC has selected the best of what Grand Rapids has to offer for the first ever Masters World Championships. The event will take place in mid-August.
