It was a little slick last time I played when it was just damp, and not actively raining, so I was concerned about how it gets when it's muddy.
I don't know how much of a run up you have, I have a fairly normal two step grapevine type one and in super slippery conditions, I just throw without taking any steps... also, proper shoes are definitely key... I recommend good gore tex trail runners for spring/summer golf, chakkos if you must wear sandals in the hot weather, a good pair of hiking boots, and in the winter months I have a very comfortable, cushy pair of Sorel's that I adore... I don't recommend straight up rubber boots because of the weight factor... they're too heavy... over the 12 years I've been golfing, I have really noticed that proper footwear with good support decreases the symptoms of fatigue throughout my body... also having the dual straps for the golf bag makes a truly noticeable difference... especially if you're like me and have a full day,s worth of stuff and things and plenty of beverages and snacks that besides your discs you pack around in your bag... good luck and good golfing!
peace threw disc golf,
