I'm glad you have enjoyed disc golf so far. One thing I would say is that Kansas City has SO many courses to offer new - intermediate players. Swope / Shawnee Mission / Down Under / Prairie Center / Pleasant hill / Rosedale 3/4 of the year and Water Works 1/2 the year. I think being your first year in the scene you have been able to experience what some of our courses (mainly Rosedale) can become. But on a whole that and many other courses are usually set short. A few times out of the year they are tipped out for us "long arms" enjoy. Due to technology in discs and plastics the game has evolved where no the people picking it up are young people and these newer faster discs make it easy to throw those distances with little effort. The courses are reflecting the way the game is going. I think length if done properly would be enjoyable to all who play. Not just the guys who can throw 400+. Take hole #8 at rosedale on the island. I'm sure you enjoy that hole. A 4 is a good score on that hole. Anyway, for the most part the more frequented courses are in very beginner friendly placements so I wouldn't worry about that too much. That is for use long arms to whine about.
