Disc Golf

What is Disc Golf?

Disc golf is played much like traditional golf. Instead of a ball and clubs, however,
 players use a flying disc, or Frisbee®. The sport was formalized in the 1970's, and shares
with "ball golf" the object of completing each hole in the fewest number of strokes
(or, in the case of disc golf, fewest number of throws). A golf disc is thrown from a tee
area to a target which is the "hole". the hole can be one of a number of disc golf
targets; the most common is called a Pole Hole® an elevated metal basket. As a player
progresses down the fairway, he or she must make each consecutive shot from the spot
where the previous throw has landed. The trees, shrubs, and terrain changes located in and
around the fairways provide challenging obstacles for the golfer. Finally, the "putt" lands
in the basket and the hole is completed. Disc golf shares the same joys and frustrations of traditional
golf, whether it's sinking a long putt or hitting a tree halfway down the fairway. There are few
differences, though. Disc golf rarely requires a greens fee, you probably won't need to rent a cart,
and you never get stuck with a bad "tee time." It is designed to be enjoyed by people of
all ages, male and female, regardless of economic status.
