About Disc Golf

 

The sport of disc golf is a lot like regular golf.  The courses are generally nine or eighteen holes.  With disc golf, instead of using different kinds of clubs that do different things, a person will use different discs that operate differently.  Also, in the game of disc golf, instead of trying to get your ball in the hole you are trying to get your disc in an elevated basket.

 

The sport of disc golf originated in the 1960s and has recently really gained popularity.  The number of disc golf courses doubled in the 8 years from 2000 to 2008.  That number has doubled again in the last 10 years.  Disc golf is one of the fastest growing sports in America. The game was started with a couple of guys, Ed Headrick and George Sappenfield, and now there is a PDGA and tournaments are held in every state in our country.  Also, the game is played in about 40 countries around the world.  The sport is still continuing to grow rapidly.

 

The sport of disc golf can do great things for the community.  If there is a disc golf course in the area, it will bring people into the town that otherwise would not have visited.  When these people come to the town they will most likely eat at a local restaurant, get gas at a local gas station, and possibly stay at a local hotel.  Tournaments can be held to benefit local charities.

 

Disc golf is a lot of fun.  It can be played by all ages and skill levels.  The sport is a family sport.  It can attract a youthful crowd to the area and park.
