Episode 204: John Houck - Disc Golf Architecture
Disc golf has a lot in common with golf. It’s usually played over nine or 18 holes; there are tees and targets; there are drives, approaches, and putts; and scores are often calculated according to par. But Fried Egg listeners will be particularly interested to know that disc golf, like “ball golf,” has its own history, style, and philosophy of course design. To find out more about disc golf architecture, Garrett talks with John Houck, the leading architect in the sport. They discuss Houck’s approach to design, his thoughts on naturalness and strategy, and his hopes for the future of his craft.
