About disc golf

Disc golf is a newly popular sport in the region and is played similarly to regular golf. Instead of using golf clubs and a golf ball aiming for a hole, disc golf players throw a disc and aim for a target 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 basket. Most often, a course is nine or 18 holes. The player with the lowest score wins.

Disc golf is easy to learn and is accessible to people of all ages and fitness levels.
