What is this?
I must admit when I first saw it, I didn't have the slightest idea nor did Mr. T. Then one day Mr. T's buddy asked if he would be interested in learning to play disc golf. You have probably seen young guys playing it in the park. I thought they were just tossing a frisbee. I had no idea that there was a net involved, and a course involved and that it was called Disk Golf, not Frisbee Golf.
It is addicting....Mr. T. is now the proud owner of his own net. One must practice, you know.
Disc golfers take on many forms when they toss a disc. It is serious business. There is a lot of talking, leaning, dancing, grimacing, joking, cheering and smiling! I especially like "the flamingo"!
There are discs that are distance drivers, fairway drivers, mid-range discs and putt and approach discs. ..whatever is needed! Practicing your putt is important...when it goes in the basket, the chains hanging down bang against one another and there may be a cheer or two!
Disc golf is a great game for those who want to be out in the fresh air, get a little exercise, enjoy time with friends and have fun! Beware of the addiction....Mr. T. plays with a group of 6 or 7 guys at least three times a week....it is important to try out all of the courses in the area, and then there is the need to play on courses in other cities... The courses are usually within parks. They are similar to a regular golf course with open areas and hazards! Sounds serious, but fun!
