WHAT IS DISC GOLF
Disc Golf is played much like traditional golf – the object is to complete each hole in the fewest number of throws. Instead of using a ball and clubs, players use a flying disc, or Frisbee®. The game started with people aiming their Frisbee® at various targets, such as garbage cans, trees, light poles and other readily available items.
Today, according to the Professional Disc Golf Association, there are thousands of courses around the world. There are teams/leagues popping up all over and over 86,000 members of the Professional Disc Golf Association. Suitable for school age to senior citizens, and all fitness levels, Disc Golf is the perfect lifetime fitness sport. If you can throw a Frisbee®, you can play Disc Golf.
