ABOUT DISC GOLF
Disc Golf is played like traditional ball golf, but instead of using a club and balls, players use flying discs. Like ball golf, the player starts at hole one and throws from the tee. The player progresses down the fairway by throwing from the spot where the previous throw landed. The hole is completed when the disc has landed in the basket. The object is to complete the course with the fewest amounts of throws. Disc golf is accessible to all members of the community, male and female, young and old.
Disc golf first arrived in the late 1970’s and there are now more than 6,000 courses around the world, with new courses being installed every day.
WHY INVEST IN A DISC GOLF COURSE?
One of the reasons why disc golf is a great fit for almost all communities is that there are practically no barriers for setting up a course and playing. You can play whether you are young, old, in shape, out of shape, male or female, alone, or with a group. The land can be flat, hilly, grassy, sandy, rocky, with a lot of trees, or no trees. Disc Golf can fit in to many different types of land and utilize previously unused areas of a park at a budget that almost no other sport this inclusive, can match.
Disc Golf is now recognized as one of the fastest growing sports in the world. Professionally designed courses have a direct impact on local economies by attracting enthusiasts who travel the globe in order to play well-designed courses.
