Q: Disc Golf? What’s That?
A: One of the fastest growing sports in the U.S.
Disc golf is played much like golf except, instead of a ball and clubs, players use a flying disc. A golf disc is thrown from a tee area to a target, which is the “hole.” The hole can be one of a number of disc golf targets; the most common is an elevated metal basket. As a player progresses through the course, he or she must make each consecutive throw from the spot where the previous throw landed. The trees, shrubs, and terrain changes located in and around the fairways provide challenging obstacles for the golfer. Finally, the “putt” lands in the basket and the hole is completed.
