    thanks for the empathy... I have learned my lesson, when near the water, no matter how much faith I may have in my own skills... don't throw your favorite disc... however, me and pinkie have been together for so long, I feel confident somehow he'll come back to me (yes, my pink disc is totally a boy!).

    peace,

      That hole is evil. EVery disc I have lost on that hole (and there have been a few) have been on really nice and seeminly safe throws that took a giant skip, crazy roll, or wonky bounce off a tree.

        seriously! deceptively simple and straightforward! it was a lovely little toss and then this radioactive tree jumped out of the pond and bitch slapped my disc down into the freakishly deep depths of that stinky murkishness... ah, well, now I know better... and maybe it was time for me and pinkie to move on, anyway... my game has advanced and grown quite a bit in the four years I've had that disc...

          • I'm planning to play this course in May when I come to Oregon (oregon virgin) for a DG trip and Beaver State visit. Should I bring backups of my entire bag I don't care about losing. I've seen videos and it looks awesome but there's so much water.

              depends how good is your 250' straight game?

              do you like throwing scary routes?


              being a virgin to the course for TDG a couple years ago, i only lost 2 discs and 1 was a frikken 150' upshot

              it has a lot of water, but there are safe routes on every hole.......so extras would be good if you wanna huk extra shots/routes other wise throw it str8 and safe you will be good.

              You can also just huk to your hearts content at Trojan and stop in to Disc Golf Depot on you way to Milo and re-stock your bag.

              • Haha. Stop and restock eh. I. I have 3-4 discs in my I consider replaceable with new ones. The others are too special/worked in. I'll probably bring back ups of all my favourite molds on the trip for holes with water that I'm not 100% of my skill on. That being said, if there's a hyzer line I can hit 275 every time. If it's a low straight shot I'm pretty much good to 225. Time will tell. I'm hoping my low straight game is at a consistant 300 feet by the trip.

                • Just played my first round at Trojan yesterday, fun times but I lost two discs. Problem throwing alts is that you usually don't know quite how they will fly.

                  Anyway, had both a beat Star Wraith and a Champ Coyote hyzer out on the first water hole (#6 I think) if anyone finds them, would be sweet to get at least the Coyote back.

                      Lol. How much water do you need to clear.

                        I have a chronic condition called, "decrepit old man arm." I've made that annie shot a few times and never plunked one there yet. With my best annie drive, I'm still looking at a low-percentage putt. Here's my deal> When I started playing the coward at Trojan, my scores dropped dramatically. I took that as a sign from Blinky the Three-Eyed Fish and I've never looked back. Someday I'm going to get a par round there.

                        I can see we're talking about a different game here.

                        • Well maybe it was more like 12-15 feet, I dunno it seemed real low. Lol. If you're referencing my different quotes in distance from the two threads, I can't hit 475 all the time and it sure as hell isn't predictable as to where it's going to go hah

                              There is never a huge expanse of water to clear... I played it safe and comfortably made it over the water in most cases... #11 I hit an unexpected tree and #6 I was just too scared and didn't have enough faith in my annie... the deal is, this is not a beginner course, and it would be pushing it to call it an intermediate course... the water gets in your head and tightens you up and there are other well placed obstacles as well... next time I go out I'm just going to bring a bunch of old throw away eclipses and use those near the water if there's also tree obstacles until I learn the fairways and lines a little bit better... I would say your first time out, just for your head game, bring plenty of spare plastic.

                              peace threw disc golf,
