BUT WHAT IS DISC GOLF?
WHERE DID IT COME FROM?
AND WITH THIS NEWFOUND GROWTH...
WHERE IS THIS AMBITIOUS SPORT GOING?
It’s one of the fastest growing sports in the country and it all starts with a small flying object similar to those that many baby boomers grew up with: the Frisbee. However, unlike tossing little flying saucers to friends and running them down for the spectacular catch, these new style discs are being tossed (or ripped) down fairways lined with trees (often very tight fairways) making this game quite challenging. If that’s not difficult enough, most of the fairways bend right or left introducing yet another level of complexity to the game. So what is this new sport that includes discs, fairways and large metal contraptions draped with chains (the target or basket)? It is rightfully named disc golf. Disc golf (the popular term), also known as Frolf, Folf, or Frisbee golf is gaining popularity across the country and even world-wide. If you look you are certain to find disc golf courses popping up in many cities and in every state in the nation, often in local parks, sometimes even on private properties.
