    Default Proud father right here

    My 9 year old son Alistar ( who live in New Jersey full time ) Wanted to play a round of disc golf at C.V.. It's his 5th time playing, 1st time at C.V.



    He loves playing, practices in the back yard D.G. basket & asked to go out 1 on 1 today somewhere new.
    He said it was to hard & really liked Otter creek & I.Q. better.

    That's awesome!! Trying to get my kids interested in it. The teenager seems to enjoy playing, but I am not sure when I should intrduce my 7 year old to the game.

    Michael started playing when he was 5. 9 years later and he's throwings Apes 450ft now. Caleb, my youngest, started playin last year when he was 8. He plays his first tournament this Saturday at the Bluegrass State Games. The Kentucky State Juniors Tournament is coming up so get them ready to go!

    Right on. I will bring her with me when I play during the week. Can't decide between CV or IQ to start her at though. IQ is easier for me, but not sure how big of a difference it'll make to her, and CV is pretty which might help keep her interested. Any suggestions?

    IQ is an easier course to play, but it is usually pretty packed and makes it hard to let kids actually take all the shots they will take. At CV, it might not be a good idea to tee off on three, but she should have all the time she needs to throw as many as she needs. Another suggestion would be to bring her into the store sometime. Caleb is usually here putting, or driving in the back. Something about being allowed to throw things inside makes it fun by default. After that, they start begging to go the course.

    That sounds like an excellent idea!

    Thank you

    I have 12 and 14 year old sons who I've been bringing to the course with me several times a year for about 3 years. Typically, if I'm going to just play a quick round locally, I'll ask them if they want to come along. Sometimes they do, sometimes they'd rather do something else. Just this past weekend I played IQ with my youngest (he's a scrawny little guy, only about 75 lbs), and he got his first two pars of his young career! It was a good day. =)

    Caleb tied for second, one stroke out of first. He had to play the 13u division since he was the youngest player there. He shot an 88 at Veterans Park, then tried to make a come back at Shilito, where he shot a 72 (won the card that round). He went up against two 11 yr olds and a 12 yr old.
