Basic Outline

Disc golf is similar to regular golf in many ways. Instead of using clubs and a ball, the player throws a frisbee disc, and tries to hit individual targets in as few throws as possible.

The Course

In official competition, the targets are elevated baskets surrounded by chains, so that when the disc hits the chains it drops into the basket. Generally, for a game of disc golf any object can serve as a hole, such things such as trees, poles and posts are ideal. The distance of the holes are usually between 80m and 150m and are rated par 3, though longer and shorter ones can also be designed.

The Disc
