|Hole #1 Knob Hill|
We spot a couple and their two dogs, getting ready to do...what?? Then, colored flying discs are threading their way through the trees like frisbees....and hey! it's a competition. The young girl had quite a delivery, too, I must say. And as it turns out, yours truly, has discovered Disc Golf...and, here we were right smack in the middle of the golf course. Sorry, folks! I had never heard of Disc Golf and the young couple took time to show us the ropes, even offered to let us try our hand at a hole in one...uh, I don't think so! I found it interesting that their 2 dogs did not try chasing the discs (unfortunately I kept calling them frisbees), the cute guy said his dogs are trained not to even try. He gave us a demonstration and it was true, but they will chase a stick or two. Good dogs!

Then I discover there's this whole league, Pittsburgh Flying Disc Society, and there are courses in Schenley Park, Moraine, Deer Park, and others all across the country. You can find them here: http://www.pfds.org There are local leagues, national leagues and pros.. I just never knew!! See what you can discover if you just get out there and look!
Am I the only person who never knew of this sport? Leave me a message, I'd love to know!
So, I explored a new park and discovered a new sport...it was a good Pioneer Girl day. Thanks for reading.. over and out for now...xoxoPG
