What is Disc Golf?

Disc Golf is one of the fastest growing sports in the world. It’s cheap, easy to play and fun for people of all ages, genders, and physical abilities.

Similar to traditional ball golf, players use special discs (“frisbees”) instead of balls and clubs, throwing them at an above ground target instead of a hole or flag. There are different types of golf discs used for different purposes, much like traditional golfers use different clubs.

The object is to throw a golf disc into the target for ‘par’ or better (ie; the lowest number of throws). The targets are typically steel, net-like objects over which chains hang, better known as Baskets.

The player begins by throwing or ‘driving’ from a designated tee area and continues toward the target, taking each consecutive shot from where the previous throw has landed. Finally, a successful ‘putt’ sends your disc into the target, and the hole is completed.

Natural challenges such as distance, accuracy, wind, trees, shrubbery and terrain changes offer disc golfers plenty of action and excitement during the course of the game.
