Simply put, disc golf is like traditional golf but with a ‘Frisbee-like’ disc instead a ball and club. One of the fastest growing sports in the world, the aim of disc golf is to get your “disc” into an elevated metal basket in the fewest number of “throws” or shots. Just think “ball golf” but your arm is the club and the disc is the ball!
Disc golf shares the same joys and frustrations of traditional golf, whether it’s nailing a long putt, sinking an “ace” (hole in one) or hitting a tree halfway down the fairway. As in “ball golf,” a typical course will have 9 or 18 holes, but each hole only averages between 50 and 150 metres. Natural obstacles like trees and lakes add a challenging dimension to a course.
Disc golf, is a fun, inexpensive, healthy and environmentally friendly game that can be enjoyed irregardless of age, gender or ability. Give it a try today!
