What is Disc Golf

Disc Golf started in the USA and has grown in popularity internationally. It is similar to traditional golf, however, instead of using golf clubs and balls aiming for a hole, disc golf players use disc golf discs and aim for a disc golf basket, which is usually a pole extending up from the ground with chains and a basket, and this is 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 with the disc coming to rest in the basket or chains. Generally, a course is made up of 9 or 18 holes.

Players start at hole one and complete the course in order, playing through to the last hole. The player with the lowest total cumulative throws wins. Disc Golf can be played for fun or competitively.

Disc golf courses can differ from traditional golf courses in a few ways, mainly because they are on a wide variety of terrain and land often not suitable for other park activities or development, but perfect terrain for a disc golf course.

Disc Golf is one of the best lifetime fitness activities you could find to do. It’s is easy to learn, a healthy activity, and accessible to people of all ages and fitness levels. It has a low cost entry level to play, in fact many courses in the UK are free to play. You don’t need any special clothing or footwear and you can play all year round.
