Disc Golf

Disc golf is fun. A lot of fun.

Disc Golf is a sport that takes some of the rules of golf, applies them to frisbees/flying discs, and instead of holes, you throw the discs into above-ground chain link baskets.

The great thing about disc golf is anybody can play. It is designed for all skill levels. Find a course near you and try it out.

Disc golf was started in 1966 by Steady Ed Headrick, inventor of the Frisbee for Wham-O. You can read more about the history of disc golf here.
