Tink, F%$#!

Tink
F%$#!
It’s the first lesson I taught my wife when she joined me for a round on the frolf course. She’d never seen disc golf before so I figured I’d start easy. **TINK** “F%$#!!!” It’s the sound of a disc hitting the basket
but not staying in
and the subsequent reaction of the player. It only took about 5 minutes before we heard it happen the first time to a player in a group behind us. It’s been more than a year since I’ve been on the disc golf course
and it felt good to be back! The course in E-Vegas is amazing. All 18 holes have nice concrete tee pads and pictures of the hole at each tee. In fact
a number of the longer holes have alternate tee pads for women
amateurs and G-Rob. There’s a lot to like about the set-up of the course
too. There are mandatory openings through which you must throw the discs. There are lots of places where a bad throw could land you out of bounds or in the water. And the holes offer lots of opportunities for a variety of shots. It’s a longer course than Timmons Park back in Greenville
but it also doesn’t have as many Death Star trench-like shots either. On this day
I managed just one birdie (despite what the course suggests
regular frolfers consider all holes to be a Par 3). But I was happy with how I threw considering it had been so long since I was on a course. And I can’t wait to get back out and do it again! Plus
this gives the guys from G-Vegas just one more reason to visit. 1) Free place to stay. 2) casino boat with poker room. 3) Disc golf course. 4) And for Bad Blood… some adult establishments.
