Disc golf (also called Frisbee golf) is based on the rules of golf. It is played with discs that look like Frisbees, but that are usually smaller and heavier. The discs are thrown at a target that functions like a hole on a traditional golf course. The targets can be ordinary objects, like trees or poles, or metal baskets with chains made especially for this activity.
Rules of the game
The rules of disc golf are very similar to those of regular golf. The first throw is from a tee. Each subsequent throw is made from the spot where the previous throw landed. As in traditional golf, a standard number of strokes, called par, is set for each hole. For example, a common strategy for a par 3 hole is to execute a long throw, followed by a throw of medium length to reach the green and, finally, a short throw to the basket. A hole is completed once the disc has reached the target.
Course and materials
A complete course usually has 18 holes, but some courses have 9 or even 27 holes.
There are a wide variety of discs, divided into three basic categories: putters, all-purpose mid-range discs, and drivers. There are also different types of drivers depending on the distance to be covered, the wind and the difficulty of the hole.
