Blue Valley / Re: A Blue Critique
« on: November 01, 2016, 09:45:51 PM »
Reading this again, now a year after Jack re-read it...yep.  A lot has changed, and it's stil the one course I drive by just to look at when I get back up there.  The closest thing to it in StL is Sioux Passage, which is a perfectly fine course if you don't mind driving 1/2 mile between 9 and 10.  I've been there twice this week, and at Creve Coeur, just to get the feel of throwing long again.  Not throwing for 2 years  hasn't hurt my distance, but it sure hasn't helped much.

Being a rag arm, overall, I love BV.  Totally unique.  Totally fair.  Yes, to contradict His Parkerness, it can certainly be a placement course.  I can save a throw on 1 by going left off the tee.  that takes me down to averaging 6...9 is totally about placement.  I remember Arturo and someone else--Schweb??--getting a 3 on #9 at the first KCWO there, was that '06?  '08?  Totally because they placed their massive drives in the right place.  Others threw longer, but went straight up next to 8's tee.  3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 11...all about where you land your tee throw.  The wrong place and you've added at least 1 to your score.    I do miss original, original 1 & 2, but that's fine...I like the replacements at least as much.

QR is almost impossible to play after 3pm weekdays, and anytime weekends.  it's that busy.  The League is not a "mini" like KC has, but an 8 week doubles tournament. 

The club does close courses here, because most of the leagues are so full, they do take most of the course.  But, there's a mentality here that I still can't get used to, almost 4 years in.  And, the courses do not match in quality.  I could express a few more opinions, but I won't.  I do live here.

What were the final numbers for food/lbs and cash from KC?  St Louis had $4,000 and 1190# of food.

Sounds like I missed a great time, again.

since the link in the OP is dead, possibly the assumption is that the event is not happening.

Danger, since you can't count above 4 anyway, what does it matter?

All the baskets but short 8 and short 1 are in.  I happened upon Dan and Jim last Saturday, and it's really a great development at BV.  The layout should be out soon (although I know it...ha!)
I'll be at BV this Friday, probably about noon, to play the new short form and maybe the full course.   IF anyone cares to join me, it would be appreciated.

NEWS FLASH from Global Disc Golf Tournament HQ!
Ams can sign up Saturday morning from about 8-10am. Play starts at 11, player's meeting at 1030. Pre reg will shut down at 7 CDT Thursday as indicated earlier.


Exception: An MPO or FPO player with a rating under 970, or Pro Master with a rating under 935, can play as Amateurs. This is a B Tier tournament, so it's allowed--no cash payout though. This does mean that pros who want to play Am, and meet those specific criteria, can register Saturday morning.

Wink, it's're only the 3rd ever, so it hasn't sunk in that it's really possible to have an ace at WYCO.  You may be the last, even...

Hey, Loomis, if you get this...if you are coming back through SE Missouri (Cape Girardeau sorta way) holler to me, come play Ste Genevieve.  It won't be in your highest rated section for sure, but it shouldn't be at the bottom either.  Wish I'd seen this before now...


I'm at 51 or yours, Loomis...yeah, keep it coming.  You have some doozies and some dogs!  Good reading.

Just a reminder:  The Global Disc Golf Tournament is PRE REG only.  Late entries WILL NOT be accepted; the deadline is 7pm CDT August 18. 

The Endicott Open is a B-Tier, but you have a whole new way of cashing--the global pool.  And, 30 USDGC spots will be offered to those who qualify.  Details on the GDGT page

criteria for the worst hole: neglected, unsafe, boring to the point that you'd : consider not playing it, never take a mulligan on it, need a spotter, fear you're in someone elses landing zone and get hit, no bench, no shade, no view.

In my opinion, the worst holes are those that have zero risk/reward, have little challenge of a disc golf skill or are nearly unplayable.    


At the WO several pros at BV kept saying "blah, blah, blah drive drive.  i do not even need to think about my next shot, nor change out the disc."   These type of holes can be both really long and really short.  
I completley agree with Tracy on this, which is why I like BV.  F'rinstance, #1.  The risk is to drive the 600' that is logically about the maximum possible there  (well, not for me) without going too far either way.  You get in the schule, you have some problems.  Play it shorter, more controlled, a par is certainly possible.  I've had several 6s there, and at least 2 were botched putts for 5.  On the long, yes.  And if this weanie arm can do it, almost anyone can.  Aside from 12 and 13, which are both boring, it's a course that will challenge anyone to play it RIGHT, not just well.  The fact that there have been so many mid-50s and so many high 80s among pros says something.
