CORVALLIS, OR, 4/14/15 — Disc Golf in Schools program kicks off on April 20 at Lincoln Elementary School
Summit Disc Golf Promotions in partnership with Ascension Disc Golf, Team Oregon Disc Golf, Vision Air Disc Golf and Legacy Discs is proud to announce the launch of its first Disc Golf in Schools program on April 20 and 21 at Lincoln Elementary School in Corvallis, OR.
Summit Disc Golf Promotions launched the Disc Golf in Schools program in 2015 to provide schools with disc golf targets and discs. Our mission is to partner with schools’ physical education programs throughout Oregon and to hold disc golf clinics at each school to help introduce the fast-growing sport of disc golf to students.
The first clinics of the program will be taking place over two days at Lincoln Elementary School during students’ physical education classes. The clinics will be led by two professional disc golfers from Oregon: Zoe AnDyke and Dustin Keegan (download link below for media kit bio information).
Besides providing quality instruction from professional disc golfers, the Disc Golf in Schools program also will be giving Lincoln Elementary 9 disc golf targets (from DGNomad, www.dgnomad.com) and 60 disc golf discs from Legacy Discs (www.legacydiscs.com).
Funding for a significant portion of the Disc Golf in Schools program at Lincoln Elementary comes thanks to our title sponsor, Rotary Club of Corvallis – After 5.
Media interested in attending and viewing the program at Lincoln Elementary on April 20th and April 21st should contact us as soon as possible so we can set something up according to the District’s rules and guidelines.

I love being home for the holidays, especially quality time with family. Over the past two years, I’ve gotten my Dad and younger brother both hooked into disc golf. So anytime we’re all in town, we always make it a point to go hit up a round together. A father/sons tradition we started over a year and a half ago when we finally got my Dad into playing. Always fun times, but we still always seem to manage to turn it into a friendly competition. Who will win it this year?
Our hometown has a course—small, flat and short, but a course nonetheless. We’re talking like ~3900 ft. total length for 18. It’s a great beginner course with the front 9 being mostly 150-200 ft long, through the trees. The rest of the course is pretty open and the back 9 are longer. There’s not an abundance of trees in general at the park, so wind gusts always provide an unpredictable, increased level of difficulty to this rather easy course.
Weekends back home fly by way too fast, especially when the drive there is roughly 3.5 hrs. So the only time we got in a chance to play a round was this past Saturday morning. Low 40s, cold (for down South) and very windy…of course it would be. But we have to make do with what little window of time we have. Rain, sleet or snow, we’re playing. Might as well make it two rounds, since it’s so short of a course. By the way, this is a course that is perfect for trying out new discs..no chance of losing one, or dinging one upside a tree. I figured this would be my chance to give my new Buzzz a redemption round.
Since I first started playing disc golf, I’ve been partial to Innova discs. And by “partial” I mean that’s the only brand of disc I had ever thrown up until a few months ago. I guess I’ve stuck with them because I “understood” their detailed flight ratings and descriptions moreso than any other brand of disc that I’ve come across. But anyways, I’m branching out. I’m moving on to other brands to give them a shot.
One disc that’s making its way into a permanent spot in my bag is the 2012 Discraft Ace Race disc, the Discraft Zombee. I love this disc. Neon red, it has stability, lots of glide and a slight lowspeed fade at the end. My other “non-Innova” disc that I bought recently was a bright blue Discraft X-Line Buzzz. I’ve played two rounds with it here in Georgia and did not instantly fall in love with it like all the rave reviews I’ve read over the past few months. I blamed my poor rounds on the idea that I may not be holding it correctly. I’d learn. And yes sir, that came true. The Buzzz was my go-to disc that chilly, windy lil morning in Alabama. I don’t know if it was the wind conditions or somehow I’d magically figured out a better way to hold that disc or what, but it was dead straight on the line that I would release it at. I drove with it on the front 9 and switched to the Zombee for much of the back 9.—It was a Discraft-kind-of-day.
I would go on and beat out my Dad and bro by almost 10 strokes the first round and 7 the next. I ended up shooting back-to-back (-5)’s. It turned out to be a great day indeed. Having family there and spending quality [DG] time with them made it just that much better. So it was a redemption round indeed for that Buzzz and me. My initial dislike for it has now changed. I will try it again this weekend when we play a few courses in Georgia. Hello Discraft [for now].
Any thoughts on Legacy or Latitude 64 discs? I’m in the market for a Legacy Rampage driver (173+) and a Latitude 64 Core mid-range (173+) disc if anyone would like to sell me one or make a trade. Let me know!
