Disc Golf Defined

Disc golf (sometimes called Frisbee Golf) is a disc game in which individual players throw a flying disc into a basket or at a target. According to the Professional Disc Golf Association, “The object of the game is to traverse a course from beginning to end in the fewest number of throws of the disc.”[1]

Disc golf is similar to traditional golf and uses much of the same rules and terminology. As in ball golf, a course usually consists of 18 holes. Unlike ball golf, most courses are located in public parks and are free to play, although some courses require a nominal fee, and the sport requires inexpensive discs instead of costly clubs and balls. [2] The modern disc golf target consists of a metal basket with chains hanging over it and was invented in 1976 by “Steady” Ed Hedrick(June 28, 1924 – Aug. 12, 2002), the father of disc golf and the modern “frisby”.
