Hey PFDS folks,

I recently helped design a course near Cumberland, MD where I grew up. It's almost complete, and I'm hoping to host an event there late this summer. Disc golf is not very big in the area, so I'm going to go with one of the "starter pack" tournaments, like the MVP Circuit or the Trilogy Challenge. Does anyone have any input on which one to host? They seem pretty similar to me outside of simply being different manufacturers. Any input would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Josh

I really like the Trilogy Challenges, You get 3 Discs from 3 Manufacturers as well as you can set it up to play however you like. I have never played a MVP Circuit until this coming year... so maybe I am biased a bit :D Good Luck! See you at EBO!

Eric Nichols   January 27 at 10:17pm

I'm hosting a MVP circuit June 4th at Deer Lakes. Not really sure which one you should do. It seems like most 3 disc challenges are pretty straight forward. It's up to you on format and everything. Good luck man and I'm sure I'll see you around this spring/summer!

I highly enjoyed the Trilogy Challenge I played in last year, great format and the discs were awesome.

Poll results are in...https://apps.facebook.com/my-polls/view/gfjor1s1kdsnbq2tmgdd Looks like we have a good amount of people interested in the concept of the putting league!

I'm in the very early stages of starting an indoor putting league this winter. I've got a venue in mind that would enable us to have upwards of 100 people if needed and the ability to drink (responsibly) while playing. If you have interest please like this post and comment if you have a basket we would be able to use. I talked to a few people last week about this idea and it seems like we could have a pretty good turnout. The possible venue would be in the squirrel hill area. Not sure ... more

Please take this survey if you still have interest in playing in an indoor putting league this winter. We finally found a place but it isn't cheap!

Eric Nichols   January 20 at 9:27pm

Please share the links to the polls if you have interest. We need 24 people to make this thing work!.J.Gary Dropcho and I will be running it and hope we can make this happen!

Disc golf continues to grow exponentially but under the mainstream radar… This lifestyle sport has everything to do with landscape design, culture and leisure recreation for an increasingly urban world… Anyone interested in this subject should check out this 2013 MLA thesis from Cal Poly Pomona: Disc Golf Course Design: Inscribing Lifestyle into Underutilized Landscapes, for the short, cold months ahead:

Hey Pa disc golfers!, the gauntlet has been thrown down...next Saturday, Nov 8th, Tomlinson Run Civil War (Battle of the States) just over the river south of East Liverpool Oh in New Manchester W.V. Two rounds on a great course. An affordable tournament with state pride at stake. Check it out, and bring your best game! Ohio vs. Pennsylvania vs. West Virginia!

Hello. I am going to see one of favorite bands at Howlers Oct. 22nd and wanted to play one or two of your best courses. I would like any info please. Also, I'd like a local to join me for golf. It would make my golf experience in Pittsburgh more enjoyable.

Unfortunately I am busy that week, but Patrick is right Moraine and Deer Lakes are the Best you would be doing yourself a disservice to skip them.

Jon DeCapua   October 9, 2014 at 1:24pm

search for course "guides" for Deer Lakes/Moraine (i'm partial to Deer Lakes) on dgcoursereview.com.

J. Gary Dropcho   October 14, 2014 at 10:58am

Deer Lakes and Moraine are not to be missed. Playing both in one day is a tall order. I may be available on Oct 22
