We played NSRA again today. It is a pretty difficult 18 hole disc golf course with several par fours. I got a tie with my personal best score of +13. I also tied my son. He was a bit unhappy with his round but I was happy to do better than I usually do. (I've scored a +20, +17 and now +13 recently on the course.)
The course is not really difficult but it gives me some issues on a few of the holes. I'm getting better at it though, so that is hopeful.
My son lost a disc on hole 16 when it rolled under the bramble bushes. It was going pretty fast when it landed and rolled. He was not intending to throw a roller but it turned over too far.
I lost a disc on the same hole the last time I played. I threw a bit too stable a disc off the tee and it ended too far left and put me in a hard place to make the next throw. I threw the next throw too hard and it turned over in the wind and flew off into the, "valley of lost discs." :D
Maybe someday that disc might be recoverable if someone starts clearing a lot of bramble bushes and overgrown stuff in the area. I've lost a disc there before but it has never returned after many months.
A screen grab from a 360 photo taken today with my Insta360 camera:
This is taken near the tee pad on hole nine at NSRA. It is a short 210 foot island hole with a drop zone if you miss the island from the tee. The drop zone is very forgiving so generally I get a birdie or at most a bogie on this hole. The basket is out of sight from the tee and just to the left protected by the hedge and a low tree branch. Today I just barely made the island so I ended up with par.
