Frisbee with golf – Say hello to Disc Golf
Just what on earth is Disc golf?
Are you a fan of Golf but just don’t have the funds to buy an expensive set of clubs?
What about Frisbee, its cheap and accessible to all. Just pop over to amazon and you can pick up a set of 3 frisbees especially designed for the sport dirt cheap!
The history of Disc Golf is quite hard to place, back in the 1920’s in Canada there was a group of school friends who would throw tin lids at trees and fence posts. They called this Tin Lid Golf but they grew up and stopped playing.
In the 1960s all around the United States people started to hold tournaments with trees as the targets. Trees were replaced by different targets until the 70s when Kenneth and Edward Headrick, tired of arguments about what counted as a score, Invented a chain basket on a pole.
If you’re having a hard time understanding how to play disc golf, watch this short video that explains the differences between the different disc types.
Its relatively simple and very similar to Golf. With over 4000 course throughout North America you should easily find yourself somewhere to play, Europeans need not worry either as the number of courses over there are rapidly increasing.
So there you have it, Golf mashed up with Frisbee, what more could you ask for.
Anyone can play and it’s relatively easy to setup your own course, but if you are looking for like minded individuals can i recommend you check out the SubReddit /r/discgolf or search the PDGA course directory for a course near you!
