What is Disc Golf?

Disc Golf is fun and easy to learn making it a great recreational outing for a wide variety of ages. Disc Golf is played like traditional golf using a frisbee (golf disc). Players tee off from designated tee areas and progress down the fairway until the golf disc lands in the target. Different types of golf discs are used for driving, approaching, and putting but a multipurpose disc (around $8) is all you need to get started.
