So how do I get better at throwing a disc?  I have poor distance and I'm  probably gripping the discs incorrectly and too tightly.  I will have a cut on my finger by the 8th hole.

This is super basic, but Nate Sexton is a great person to listen to.  https://youtu.be/T7Buk1Hn8jM

If this is too simple, here is another one with five great tips:

Thinking of starting next year. Will start at a local practice range. Looks like about 100' between most of the baskets. Any specific disc recommendations for the practice range?

If that's what you start on, just get a putter and work on your form. Once you are comfortable, get a mid-range and work from there. There are several putters to choose from, probably doesn't matter much if you are just starting out. I personally use a Dynamic Discs Judge, but that's not really an endorsement since I put for sh!t.

I thought the production values were better than expected. I really enjoyed it.

I wonder if the difficulty of that course would freak out the novice viewer though. It looks impossible on screen.

Any recs for how someone in the Los Angeles/San Fernando Valley area could get started? Good places to practice?

My suggestion would be to install the Udisc app on your phone. A wealth of info is available on there. Will show you local courses, and most will have reviews which should tell you if they're what you're looking for.

So the Covid era has led me to the disc golf world, and I have to say it's been a great outlet in so many ways. Great exercise and a perfect way to get outside while social distancing. 

The people I've interacted with so far have been fantastic. There is a definite sub-culture of disc golfers who are 99% welcoming and chill about the sport. Demographically it definitely skews young, but feeling like the old man on the course hasn't dampened my enthusiasm at all.

I play probably 5 times a week beginning in mid-July. I've become more and more interested in the sport as the months progress, from the history of it to the current tour and prominent players. I find myself watching YouTube videos constantly, both instructional and recordings of tour events. I also have visited about a dozen courses in my immediate area and am excited to visit courses farther afield at the first opportunity.

I was stunned to not find a disc golf thread on these forums. 

Any other enthusiasts from the FBG realm? What do you throw? Where do you play?

Because they are all high on the reefer? ;)

This is something I wanted to try more with the son.  How much is a decent beginner set of discs?

A neighbor just picked one up that included a bag for about $25

In the before-times, I'm told you could find nearly anything for a good price at your local Play-It-Again sports, but that isn't the case lately, at least around me. Facebook has several disc-trading/selling groups that are worth a look if you want to keep your investment down.

I was -1, but it's a very easy course. Top performer in all divisions was -9 I believe. I was pleased to be under par and to get an official rating. Playing another on the 19th, praying the weather holds up. It's a lot of fun. 

Hoping 2021 brings some normalcy and the opportunity to hit some new courses regionally and enter events.
