**UPDATE** MID-SOUTH COLLEGIATE OPEN - DAY 1 Two rounds were played today, but a slight schedule change allowed us to play one singles round on the Rec course and the alternate shot doubles round on the Champ course. After Round 1, K-State sat in 3rd place with a combined score of 170 from the top 3 singles scores, two strokes behind Southern Illinois University in 2nd. The Championship course was a workout featuring long rolling fairways. We played along KU who finished round 1 two strokes be ... more

Hang in there. Good luck tomorrow!

Ben Nispel    September 24, 2014 at 8:33pm

I'll be in town Sunday, gonna try to play all 3 courses while I'm in town. Let me know if you'd like to throw a round!


Josh Carroll    June 25, 2014 at 1:18am

I hope I'm not speaking too soon, but there may be good news for the KSUDGC and other collegiate teams around the Midwest. I have been in contact with Dynamic Discs about hosting a qualifier event during the 2014-15 season. The latest response from them mentioned that Jeremy Rusco is making phone calls with other organizations in our region that have hosted a collegiate event and is making plans to host one next season. Stay tuned!

**UPDATE** NATIONAL COLLEGIATE DISC GOLF CHAMPIONSHIPS - DAY 4 The only Singles rounds of the competition took place today on the Old Glory/Hogback courses. Players from each school were split between the two courses, so Jacob and Travis teed off on the Hogback course while AJ and David took on Old Glory. At the end of the day, the three lowest scores on each course would be submitted towards the team total. After round one, Jacob and Travis completed Hogback in 59 strokes each which is 1-under ... more

I have enjoyed seeing you guys on Discgolfplanet. It has got to be a blast playing those courses.

**UPDATE** NATIONAL COLLEGIATE DISC GOLF CHAMPIONSHIPS - DAY 3 Today's two rounds of Doubles on Moody Woods and Headrick Hills allowed a bit more separation on the leaderboard. The day started earlier today teeing off at 9:30am on the Moody Woods course. Teammates for the first round were, again, Jacob and Travis (Odds) and AJ and David (Evens). Lots of tight, wooded lines on this course required precision and consistency off the tee. We were able to scrape enough birdies to take down Mood ... more

Dustin Harrison   April 21, 2014 at 1:04pm

wow that looks like almost 100ft putt

Josh Carroll    April 17, 2014 at 2:59am

**UPDATE** NATIONAL COLLEGIATE DISC GOLF CHAMPIONSHIP - DAY 2 This was the day we had all been waiting for, the day we've worked so hard for all year. Today's first rounds of Doubles play would determine whether or not we would earn a spot in the Championship division. We rolled into the parking lot at the Hippodrome Complex around 9:40am to loosen up and get some warm-up putts in. Opening ceremonies took place at 11:15 and first round tee assignments were announced. Sticking with tr ... more

^^What Travis said. Give us some credit Crazy John! That wasn't a "long 3" that was an eagle putt for 2!

Mitchell Brenn   April 16, 2014 at 11:06pm

That is an awesome eagle run. I'm pretty sure you don't need a subscription nick.

Rick Petrie   April 17, 2014 at 7:05am

I'm looking forward to some down time so I can watch.

Josh Carroll    April 16, 2014 at 1:14am

**UPDATE** NATIONAL COLLEGIATE DISC GOLF CHAMPIONSHIPS - DAY 1 After a long car ride through periodic rainstorms, the KSUDGC Nationals team arrived in North Augusta, SC shortly after 2:00pm. Players were greeted at the Hippodrome Disc Golf Complex by staff members where we picked up our excellent player's packs. These included a dry-fit NCDGC jersey, a prototype Innova G-Star Daedalus, a DGA Torrent, as well as vouchers for a commemorative NCDGC Pro Roc and lunch. A Hott Shots putting com ... more

Good luck guys! Can't wait to watch some action on the Internet.

Kevin Clouse   April 16, 2014 at 8:49am

Rick Petrie   April 16, 2014 at 1:34pm

Go 'Cats!

Josh Carroll    April 1, 2014 at 12:42am

If it hasn't already been made known, the results of the tryout rounds are finished. The members that will comprise the 2014 National Collegiate Disc Golf Championships are:
AJ Cruz, Jacob Patchen, Travis Bailey, Josh Carroll, and David Moreno
Feel free to use this discussion thread as a means of communicating about any pre-departure planning that needs taken care of.


Josh Carroll    March 27, 2014 at 3:16am

Here are a couple of interesting links regarding the National Collegiate Disc Golf Championships:

And I got goosebumps watching this promo video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9DfGo7TrUBo&feature=youtu.be

Travis Bailey   March 27, 2014 at 1:37am

But we're not even on the video... Haha

Josh Carroll   March 27, 2014 at 9:18am

Haha, I'm assuming it's just the 20 teams that are Bye Seeds and already secured in the Championship division. Still, gets me excited for the courses and the event itself.

Josh Carroll   March 27, 2014 at 9:22am

Or, it's just outdated and they didn't bother to fix the schools :P

Ian Waters    March 27, 2014 at 1:58am

Hey invite Darian Thomas to the club. He is a sophomore at KSU and is interested in checking the club out.

Josh Carroll   March 26, 2014 at 10:59pm

I think he just needs to add K-State Disc Golf Club to his Favorites on here and then make sure that he clicks "Follow this discussion" on the Talk tab of our club page.

Ian Waters   March 27, 2014 at 7:43pm

Oh yeah, okay thanks

Josh Carroll    March 16, 2014 at 9:32pm

The Selection Sunday that really matters: http://www.ncdgc.com/apps/blog/show/41930228-selection-sunday
The last several teams have secured their spots at the National Championships. Here is a list of the 60 schools that comprise the Bye-Seed and 1st-Round-Seed divisons: http://www.ncdgc.com/teams.htm

Rick Petrie   March 16, 2014 at 7:36pm

Well played Josh. Good luck to the K-State Disc Golf Club!

Here are the links to the final t-shirt designs. Now accepting pre-orders for $15 a shirt.
T-Shirt 1: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B0dgJ-mhNBbyODlpYnRLMmc2ZFk/edit?usp=sharing
T-Shirt 2: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B0dgJ-mhNBbybkdfb1djbkVoMFU/edit?usp=sharing

Josh Carroll   March 6, 2014 at 9:59pm

Reminder: "T-Shirt 1" is the primary option assuming that the design is O.K. with Trademark & Licensing. "T-Shirt 2" is the second option if the first is not approved.

Travis Bailey   March 7, 2014 at 1:17pm

I see you posted multiple colors of inks and shirts, was that approved? If not, what are we aiming for? Purple with white ink?

Josh Carroll   March 7, 2014 at 1:25pm

Right, I posted multiple just in case. But if we're only allowed to get one fabric/one ink, it will be purple shirt with white ink.

Rick Petrie    February 28, 2014 at 1:38pm

Good luck in Iowa this weekend. Hope you guys get qualified for Nationals!

(Be sure to keep an eye on the nasty weather & maybe leave extra early too... )


Josh Carroll    February 26, 2014 at 9:44pm

Just wanted to get some feedback for a potential fundraiser. There was a little bit of discussion at our last meeting about producing t-shirts that we could sell to help raise money for competition/travel expenses. Here's a quick design I put together. We can have these made by The Graphic Edge for $5.99 each ($7.49 for XXL+).

Only half of the club chimed in. If we're going with #6, I'd like to make a couple of changes to the design. The wording is very similar to our competition jerseys which I was trying to stay away from in the initial designs.

Josh Carroll   March 4, 2014 at 4:11pm

I'm really liking this configuration: http://www.discgolfscene.com/media/207849_g.jpg

Jacob Patchen   March 4, 2014 at 6:30pm

I think I like the original 6 better. Also looking at them again, 3 is growing on me.

**AMES' COURSES** From Scott Carpenter: "Yep, I've played both of the Ames courses one time on the way up to Minnesota four years ago. Oh, there was a lot of mud on both of them. Carroll Marty - I'm kind of surprised this course is only rated 3.50, because I really liked it. I suppose what gets it dinged is its length, even from the "pro" tees. But IMO the wooded holes, transition holes, and elevation makes up for it. Something that you're going to see the ... more

He also provided some links some YouTube videos of the courses - Carroll Marty (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FjwFsBZoDdo, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0D_UTzPkDFQ, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YMjmyz5yqog) and Stable Run (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-tvaElmRzRM)
