You can now set the locations for tournaments *and* leagues to be up to 300 miles out of your club's home state. If that doesn't cover it, let me know.



And you can actually edit the hole-by-hole scores and comments for tournament and league scores. It came from a sneaky update a few weeks ago that was never announced. In your master list of scores ('Scores' tab), hit the 'Edit' link next to the scores you want to add the info to.

Nice course pictures, John. Course pictures will be way more navigable and customizable soon, maybe as a late Christmas present for the d golf community. Happy holidays, man.

Hey John. Yeah I was in Westerville working for my Aunt, and I couldn't pass up the opportunity to play. I didn't just play alone, I was the only one at the course. I was surprised some of the Columbus disc junkies weren't out.

John, no problem. I am on my way out of town for the weekend, so I will add the 18-hole layout as soon as I get a chance. Thanks!

Can't wait to see you in the spring man! Not sure if I'm doing the Fairmont Ice Bowl or not. I probably should as it would be a great excuse to get up there and see Walt and Sarah and Josh Smith. Are you doing that one? Peace.

John. What's up buddy?!? How's the DG been? I've been having a pretty poor streak recently. Last tourney I didn't get over 900 rating in any one of three rounds...DOH! I gotta get back in shape. Getting married does crazy things to a guy! OK...hope all is well, can't wait to throw some disc with you this spring!

Hey John glad i found you on here. Like I need another Disc Golf site to get addicted to.

It may be a while because the whole course pictures section is being updated, but if I get a chance to make this quick fix, I will.

Thanks, excellent feedback. Hopefully we'll be able to get tournament scores directly from the PDGA soon so you won't have to worry about entering them manually, but you make a very good point and I will update the scoring system for the time being. Also, make sure you hit 'Finalize Results' from the tournament scoring page when you're done posting- it will add those tournament scores to your profile. I have been kicking around the idea of course reviews for a while now. It's kind of difficult ... more

Hi John, yes, the whole course pictures section will be updated shortly. I'll let you know when the changes are up. Thanks, and let me know if you have any questions or ideas about scoring your league.

Radius driver and putter added.

Have you thrown either of those? Any good?

Pete Crist    November 5, 2008 at 9:09pm

Thank you sir. We're trying to keep personal scoring as clean and easy as possible, but because there are many courses with changing layouts, we may have to break the mold. Thanks again for the info.

Added three holes to Forked Run. Does it make sense to have A, B and C pins, etc. as layouts, or are the pin positions changed randomly? If you have a list of common layouts, let me know and I'll get them on here. Thanks.

Pete Crist    November 5, 2008 at 5:10pm

Hi John. Will the 21-hole layouts still be an option? And will there be blue and red tees with A, B and C pins for each of the 3 new holes?

Pete Crist    November 3, 2008 at 5:27pm

Excellent point, John. We're still deciding how to implement a home area for clubs rather than a single home course, but you will probably see an update in the next week or so. I will keep you posted- thanks for the feedback!
