Goodbye disc…..

It’s a club we have all been unfortunate enough to join at some point or another. Some people have joined the club on multiple occasions in the same round, as talked about in a Facebook post in the Disc Golf Answer Man group. One member said they lost an entire bag of 12-15 discs at Selah Ranch in Texas a few years ago over a couple of rounds. Another member of the group said they had lost 8 in one round a few years ago. I myself have only lost one disc…

Saratoga 1

Explore Disc Golf’s first State Park course design comes to Saratoga Springs, NY!

Saratoga Spa State Park

Saratoga Spa State Park is one of the most popular of the New York State Parks!

It is with great excitement that we announce Explore Disc Golf is currently in the midst of it’s first disc golf course design at a State Park! Our newest course design comes from Saratoga Spa State Park in Saratoga Springs, NY where we will be designing a 2-tee/1-basket layout to form an 18-hole course that circumvents the popular Peerless Pool. The course will also be located in close proximity to Saratoga Performing Arts Center which is one of the most popular outdoor amphitheaters in the country. With a capacity of 25,000 people and an annual calendar of 20-25 concerts a year, the amphitheater attracts roughly 500,000 over the course of the summer — many of which spend their afternoons at Peerless Pool before the show. Talk about exposure!

Top Disc Golf Discs of Q2 2015 | Infinite Discs Blog

Popular Discs of 2015

Innova dominates distance driver sales, and holds the top four spots. The Destroyer is not only the most popular selling distance driver, but it is our number 1 selling disc period. While no particular plastic for the Wraith and Beast sell significantly well, the large number of available plastic types keeps these discs in the Q2 top 10.

With the exception of the TeeBird which is our #3 selling disc for the quarter, fairway drivers typically don’t sell quite as much as distance drivers. For this quarter’s stats, Latitude 64 River sales numbers are likely down from what they should be because for a few weeks Dynamic Distribution was out of the River in its most popular selling plastic, Gold Line. We couldn’t sell what we didn’t have in stock.

The Vibram Trak, which is on it’s way out of production, made the top 10 and while the Latitude 64 Trident filled the bottom spot for Fairway/Control drivers. It ranks 77th overall for all discs sold by Infinite during the second quarter of 2015.

For those who have played disc golf for a while, it’s no surprise that the Discraft Buzzz is still the top selling midrange, and our number 2 selling disc overall. It’s their Midranges, especially the Buzzz family, that keep Discraft sales up. Discraft sales numbers were likely inflated for Infinite Discs as we are one of the exclusive dealers for limited Ledgestone Edition discs.

The Gateway Wizard is still our most popular selling putter despite the fact that we had supplier break downs that kept our stock from staying where it should have been. During this quarter the Wizard was our 5th most popular selling disc overall, just one spot ahead of the DD Judge.  Finding its way in the top ten, the MVP Ion was our 41st most popular disc for the quarter. With four of the top 10 putters manufactured by MVP, this fast growing disc manufacturer shows how mainstream GYRO is becoming in the disc golf world. The PA-3 is the only Prodigy disc that has made any of our top 10’s during the second quarter.

Sometimes It’s Not a Sport or a Game

What is disc golf?  At first, that might sound like a dumb question.  It’s a sport like golf, but instead of using sticks and balls, we use discs and baskets.  Easy peasy, on to the next post, right?

Wrong.

What if I said that there are hundreds of thousands of people out on disc golf courses around the world that don’t look at disc golf as a sport at all?  What if I said that one of the keys to “growing the sport” was to expand our umbrella outside the world of sports?

I’m a supremely unathletic person.  I was not blessed with the coordination gene.  But disc golf is still the central and prominent activity in my life.  Why?  Because it’s a sport second and a whole bunch of other things first.

Find out what those things are over at the Mind Body Disc blog.

Middlesex

Disc golf course at Middlesex Green Office Park is now open for play!
We are so pumped to finally be able to announce that our 6-hole, private course design for Middlesex Green Office Park outside of Boston is done and officially open for play! While this course was contracted for use by employees only, the land owner is considering opening it up to the public in the future. If you have an interest in playing the course, please feel free to contact us and we will be happy to answer any questions in how the process is coming along. For now, though, employees of this 25-acre office park will now be able to enjoy this “pocket course” during their lunch break, after work or on the weekends!

The 207′ signature 1st hole is located in a locust grove next to the park entrance, with large rock outcroppings defining the fairways. Gorgeous hole!

Jasper, Alabama’s Downtown Throwdown

downtownthrowdown

downtownthrowdownHey guys, let me start by saying there are only 4 spots left! I’ll even pause why you go sign up, because this is a very unique tourney opportunity that you do not want to miss! Trust me.

SIGN UP HERE > Grip-N-Rip’s Downtown Throwdown.

[pause] That’s me waiting for you to sign up. Ok let’s get right to it.

So Dogleg JT sat down with Grip-N-Rip co-founder Stephen Robertson earlier this week in a one-on-one interview about the upcoming “Downtown Throwdown” disc golf tournament being held this Saturday, June 20th in downtown Jasper, Alabama. This will be unlike ANY tournament you’ve ever played in before. Businesses closed. Parking lots marked off. Alleys cleared. 20 Holes of pure urban disc golf up and down the streets, around buildings and down alley ways in downtown Jasper. It’s a full out PDGA sanctioned C-tier tournament that’s making its inaugural debut this weekend.

Check back later next week on DoglegDiscGolf.com for a review of how it all went down.

No BS Product Review – The NutSac

Sac Tee-1

Sac Tee-1

The trend in disc golf bags as of late seems to be bigger and more expensive.  There are a few folks out there doing things less expensively or sometimes simpler.  But on the whole we are headed towards bags better suited for summiting Everest than to playing a round of disc golf.

The larger a bag is, the more discs people are tempted to carry.  While I know this goes against some pretty common thinking, more is not always better.  Not too long ago I was stopped mid round, looking through the 30 discs I had with me, trying to decide which of 4 discs to throw.  At that point I decided a change was in order.

I’ve owned a NutSac bag for several years.  This seemed like the perfect time to dust it off and start using it more regularly.  Since then, outside of tournaments, it’s been pretty much the only bag I’ve carried.  My scores are down, my confidence is up, and I couldn’t be happier.

For those of you who need help simplifying your game, it’s time for another no BS product review on the Mind Body Disc blog.

Westside Discs Seer Review!

DGWeekly - Westside Seer

Westside Discs, and the Trilogy line up as a whole, has been growing and gaining popularity at an extreme rate lately. Westside is different from every other brand where they only release 3 new molds a year. For 2015 those 3 discs are the Bard, Seer, and Swan1 Reborn.

The Seer is an understable fairway driver. Westside already has plenty of understable fairway drivers, Underworld, Hatchet, and Stag to an extent, so the Seer will need to be something special to find a home in players bag. How does it fly? Where does it fit in with the rest of their fairways? Check out the video to find out!

Westside Discs Bard Review

DG Weekly - Dynamic Discs Bard

Westside Discs, and the Trilogy line up as a whole, has been growing and gaining popularity at an extreme rate lately. Westside is different from every other brand where they only release 3 new molds a year. For 2015 those 3 discs are the Bard, Seer, and Swan1 Reborn.

The Bard is a deep rimmed, overstable mid range. With flight ratings of 5 4 0 3, the Bard is expected to fly more overstable than Westside’s already very popular Mid Range, the Warship. How does it stack up? Watch the video to find out!
