I was wondering if there would be any interest in getting some BGG folks together for a round of disc golf while in Columbus.

Depending on how much interest is shown, we can do mixed doubles, triples, or just play a regular round.

I see via DGCourseReview that there are 4 courses in Columbus. If anyone has any information or preferences on these courses that would be great as well.

I played a round of disc golf at the Gathering in Columbus last year. I don't remember the name of the course we played, but it was outstanding, one of the best courses I have ever played in the 35 years I have been disc golfing.

I wasn't planning on going to Origins, but this course was so good that it might be worth the drive to Origins just to play there again.

The course I played in 2010 is called Lobdell Reserve.

Always nice to get outside for a few hours at a four day con. I would probably be in if it was reasonably close.

I gotta get in shape. Too much sitting has ruined my body.

It would take you probably 30 minutes to get to Lobdell from Origins. Take 670 east to 161 East to 37 towards Alexandria. Most of the way is freeway mileage.

Still working out the details here.

Considering things like time and location. Shooting for a 8am start, unless that is too early for everyone.

Ok, so I'm looking at Griggs Reservoir Park in Columbus

You can check out its information at DiscGolfCourseReview

Thursday at 8am.

We can band together and carpool, as the course is a tad over 5 miles from the convention center. My group will not have a car, but I'll be more than happy to share a cab if need be.

Obviously none of this is set in stone, so expect some changes between now and then. Post if you have any questions or suggestions.

For those without a car, COTA bus route 58 runs from downtown and stops at the Griggs resvoir park and ride. So it should be fairly easy to get to the Griggs course.

That's my regular playing spot. Nice and easy! :) Nice park. I would definitely recommend to anybody Ohio State's course, especially if you've never hung out at Ohio State, you get to see some nice parts of the campus.

I was just thinking about this today. If I was going to be around for more than 48 hours, I'd be in!

Have fun!
