What is Disc Golf
“Go outside and do something you will remember.”
Disc golf is similar to golf, but players throw a disc at a target instead of hitting a ball with clubs. The disc, or Frisbee, is thrown towards the target, or "hole." A successful shot results in the disc coming to rest inside the target. The game is played on a course, most of which have 9 or 18 holes. It is similar to traditional golf in that the goal is to complete the course with the fewest number of throws of the disc.
Many different discs are available for disc golf, each with its own weight, size, and flight characteristics. The most common type of disc is the mid-range disc, which is designed to fly straight and be versatile for both beginner and experienced players. Putter discs are designed to fly straight and have a slow speed; they are often used for approach shots and up-close putts. Drivers are designed to fly long distances; they typically have a wide rim and are more difficult to control than other types of discs.
You can play disc golf on open land; many parks and recreation areas have disc golf courses. Many courses are in wooded areas, but some are in open fields. Some courses are free to play, while others charge a fee.
To play disc golf, all you need is a disc; no other special equipment is required. Most people wear comfortable clothing and sneakers. If you don't have your discs, you can usually rent them at the course or buy them at a nearby store.
Disc golf is a fantastic way to get outside and enjoy the fresh air. It's also great to meet new people and socialize while playing a competitive sport. So grab your discs and head to your nearest disc golf course today! No matter your skill level, there's a course that's right for you.
