    I should have mentioned that in my one and only trip to Dabney, I was in the zone. That was Before Injury (BI). I tossed a +2 on my first round and a +4 on my second.

    My scores at Pier were too high to keep track, as were all my scores at Trojan (until my last trip there). Last round at Trojan was either +3 or +4, depending on whether #5 is a par 3 or 4.

    That's all the away courses I've played. I've been told to try Milo, but I have a feeling it's for the big arms.

      Milo is simply one of the most epic courses around. It will challenge anyone's game, but it is also a majestic place to spend a day disc golfing regardless of how many throws it takes. It has a mix of holes that will allow you to break out all the tricks in your bag, not just distance. I'm certain you would enjoy it.

        Maybe this is sacrilege, but McIver just doesn't excite me the way it does most people around here. I feel like it's way too much about making huge drives in relatively open fields; it feels like a ball golf course. (I thought I read somewhere that it actually used to be a golf course, which would make sense.)

          My personal best was in doubles at Orchard with Sam Gibson. We shot -18 and even took a couple of my shots too. I can bet no one expected it. I love surprises.

            With the exception of a couple holes, I don't view the course that way at all. Placement > Distance is the general rule for low scores at Milo. I should know - I can't throw that far!

              I agree with this sentiment. Though I think that Milo is one of the "must see" courses, I don't understand the love affair most people have with it. Then again, I get to throw at Trojan and Lucky Mud every weekend, so maybe I just have a different perspective on what I want from a disc golf course...

                  I agree, Eric. I think those two are nuts! NUTS!
                  ďI believe I can hit 18 greens, hit every fairway, you know ó Vision 54, which means you birdie every hole, thatís in the back of my mind. I want to putt better, chip better. That day when I hit 18 greens and one putt, Iíll know Iím a complete golfer. Will that ever happen? Iím not sure, but itís possible. The 54 vision is always in the back of my mind.Ē

                      Yup, we're certifiable.

                      Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying McIver's not a great course... I just don't think it's leaps and bounds above all the others. I have a lot more fun at Timber or Horning's; when I leave Milo I just feel beat.


                      Wait, this is the Personal Bests thread, so I'll report that a couple weekends ago I shot -3 at Champoeg, which was my PB. If I hadn't landed on the road on #13 it would have been -4.

                        Personal Best

                        Last week I finally shot under par at Willamette (-1). It seems to have always had my number plus I usually play Adair where my best is (-3, 51). My PB at Dexter is even shot during EC07 and is my highest rated tournament round. At Bryant my PB is (+3, 60) but that was before the current layout change. I still haven't played new hole #12 at Bryant but I hear that it is getting more playable every week. I'll find out this Saturday at the DGCA monthly.

                          I birdied the front nine all in a row at Holmes park here in Medford the other day so -9 is my PB for 9 there. PB for 18 is -13

                                See... scores that low just don't equal enough golf. I like to throw some bogeys so I can stay out on the course longer.

                                Yeah... that's it...

                                Orchard: -8
                                Champoeg: -8
                                Pier: -3
                                Milo: +1 (for 27, including Genius)
                                Timber: -7
                                Dabney: -3
                                Lunchtime: -6 (long), -6 (short)
                                Greenway: -8 (for 9), -13 (for 18)
                                Horning's: -5
                                Hagg: +1
                                Whistlers: -2
