WHAT IS DISC GOLF?
Played much like traditional golf, disc golf uses discs in place of balls and clubs. The intent of the game is to throw a disc into an elevated metal basket. The player moves from “tee” to “hole”. The trees, shrubs and terrain changes in and around the “fairways” provide challenging obstacles. Ultimately, the “putt” is tossed into the basket and the hole is completed. The goal of disc golf is to complete the course in the fewest number of throws.
