Description

Disc golf is a lot like traditional “ball” golf, except players use specially made plastic flying discs instead of balls and clubs and throw them for ‘par’ at an above-ground target instead of a hole in the ground. There are different types of discs used for different purposes, much like ball golfers use different clubs. The object of the game is to throw a golf disc into the target, typically a “Pole Hole” basket (a steel basket over which chains hang), in the fewest number of throws. The most satisfying sound a disc golfer can hear is the ‘ching!’ of a disc crashing the chains before dropping into the basket. Come learn the fundamentals of disc golf, rules, etiquette, and identify strategies, techniques, and personal skills needed in disc golf. You should be ready to play 18 holes at the completion of the course and see an improvement in distance, accuracy and scores. Wear appropriate apparel for walking and throwing disc outdoors. Basic throwing discs will be available.
