Disc Golf is One of Today’s Fastest Growing Sports
The sport of disc golf evolved as an offshoot of the many games spawned by the Frisbee® craze. The game started with people using Frisbees and aiming at targets made up of trees, trash cans, light poles, pipes, and whatever else was handy. Disc golf is similar to regular golf; however, instead of using golf clubs and balls aiming for a hole, Disc Golf players use golf discs and aim for a disc golf basket, a pole extending up from the ground with chains and a basket where the disc lands. The object of the game is to complete each hole in the fewest number of throws, starting from a tee area and finishing at the disc golf basket. Generally, a course is 9 or 18 targets long. Players start at “hole” one and complete the course in order, playing through to the last hole. The player with lowest total cumulative score wins.
