Q: What is disc golf ?
A: Disc Golf is a sport which has been around since 1975. It is
popular across the country, especially in the Midwest and Great Lakes states.
It is similar to golf, however instead of a ball and clubs, you throw specially
made plastic flying discs - similar to frisbees yet heavier and more
streamlined. Instead of a hole in the ground, the object in disc golf is to get
the disc into a metal basket on a pole, over which chains are suspended to help
slow the disc down.
Q: Who plays disc golf ?
A: Disc golf can be played by anyone, of any age from children to
seniors. It is good exercise, but can also be taken at your own pace!
Q: How do you play disc golf ?
A: Let us refer you to a couple of very good explanations of disc
golf basics: here
Q: Where can you play disc golf ?

several great online disc merchants where you can get everything you
need to get started, or to fill your bag. We are currently speaking to local
