  • Collegiate Disc Golf

    I need some more information about this. I just got accepted at UW, and the first thing that came to my mind was forming a ragtag team to represent the huskies.

    Isn't Coury a part of this for the Ducks? If so, can someone who knows PM me for my contact info, so they can give it to him? Or something? I'm too lazy/smart to fruitlessly search the labyrinthine PDGA website for info- I tried once and found only a crappy news clipping about UGA.

    Congrats on getting accepted! I was thinking about starting a disc golf team if/when I went to grad school but found that I wouldn't be able to play. I think there were age restrictions which bummed me out...

          I can't wait for a Duck vs. Husky disc golf show down. Didn't the huskies used to have a football team?

              I didn't find any mention about age restrictions, but you may have already lost amateur status when you tried to join?

              From the website:
              In order to compete for the title of Collegiate Disc Golf Team Champion, each member of the team shall meet the following criteria:

              1. Currently registered as a student* at an accredited college/university. (Must prove enrollment prior to Championship.)
              2. If the student is also a member of the Professional Disc Golf Association, he/she must maintain amateur status.

                Thats what it was - I didn't try to join, but was looking into what it took to start a UW club.

                Maybe if I let my membership lapse...

                  Well, I talked to the student activities office and they were nothing but supportive, even gave me all the info for the Ultimate team so they could help start a disc golf club. It might be a while before I have the kind of internal support necessary, but I bet we'll have a team before the end of my first year there.

                  Anybody have name ideas for a UW Huskies DG Team that aren't lame?

                    UW Poodles? Or maybe Tail-Tuckers?
                    Golf appeals to the idiot in us and the child. Just how childlike golf players become is proven by their frequent inability to count past five. - John Updike

                        Ummm... why not "Huskies"? Don't collegiate disc golf teams usually just use the school nickname?

                          The Huk-sies.

                          Oh, you said "not lame". Nevermind.

                            Well, one thing I've noticed with collegiate club teams versus official (appropriate adjective) teams is the freedom to choose your own mascot. The UCSB men's Ultimate team was The Black Tide, UW's is the Sundodgers, etc.

                            Huckin' Fuskies FTW!! I wonder what kind of stink that would raise....
