You can't, and nor would I want to have "seasoned" players design a course, you will end up with a course that is only for them.  There is a balance, and we are "making big courses" today in many parks that will turn off the newer player.  I understand, "we have a ton of smaller courses already" mentality that you feel, but here we are with over 30 courses in the area, and only 300+ in the club.  When we had 5 courses we had 150+ in the club....so do the math, we are missing people joining the club, and that "elitist" mindset has much to do with people not comfortable coming on a course with 400' shots and 2 dog legs to get there.

This is one of the most ludicrous paragraphs I've ever read on here. To assume a pro wouldn't have really good ideas for course design or that they would only think of their game in the design is asinine. Some of the best courses in the country have been designed by "seasoned pros" and are appropriate for all levels of play.
To say that there are 30+ courses in the area is not a very accurate. Currently I see 11 courses on the forum that the club affiliates with, so the growth ratio is actually close to normal.

This inner city bickering is boring. Why don't we do something more fun, like get together as a team and take on St Louis?

I write long winded because I'm anti- social in person and this is how I can let it out.

I read every one in it's entirety.
They're the most entertaining part of this forum; (yes I said that about a Jayhawk's writing) aside from Keiser making an a$$ of himself.  :o

In the Introduction section on the rules page...

"You are now allowed to retrieve a disc after a stance violation (the excessive time rule still applies of course). "

"The 30-second clock (excessive time) now starts when you reach your disc, rather than after you mark it, since a disc may not be marked. You can no longer stand over your disc holding your mini for an indefinite amount of time."

I would've stopped you from throwing from the DZ after anything but your drive. :-\

"Just deuced holes 1-5. Feeling pretty good about the round. #parked #dialed #pro"

In my dreams... I don't tweet, but I might if that happened!

Joe Hesting got himself an Ace this past Saturday at the Disc Unlimited Open, in Herington, KS.  I believe it was hole 18, straight tunnel shot.  I think he said it was a skip Ace, but, I'll let him confirm that.  I didn't see it, but, saw a picture, and I was there on the course.  Good enough for me.  ::)  Nice Ace Joe!  8)

It was a forehand skip ace on hole 19. Good for 192 bones! We forgot to agree on a ride split on the way down  :'(

So why do they let anyone compete collegiately if they've already accepted cash as a pro?

Lame.

Just because only a couple people can make it to the work day doesn't mean they're the only ones that care about the course. It's going to be muddy but I never let that stop me from playing.

I guess I'll have to play Birdland instead.
