A picture popped up on my timehop today and reminded me of this post that I wrote last year and never posted. It has been hanging out in my drafts folder, but I think it’s a good time to take it live! To be honest, I haven’t been Frisbee Golfing since that very first time last May. I did just look up a course here in Milledgeville though and I’m going to convince The Professor that we need to break out the ole’ discs this weekend! PS: There are some really bad iPhone photos in this post. PPS: I miss hair long enough to put in a ponytail.
Frisbee Golf (aka disc golf) is a new-to-me activity. I just learned how to play last week, but the sport has been around since the early 1960s! The rules are really easy to follow and the game is so much fun to play. If you’ve been living under a rock, like me, here’s a run down on how to play.
Step 1: Learn the rules!
Read up on the sport or ask your knowledgeable friends to teach you everything they know. Out-of-bounds is a real thing (The Professor is a stickler!) and there are a few other things you will need to know before you get started. I clearly have no idea what this thing is or what I’m doing in this photo.
The Professor has 2 sets. Each set has a driver, a mid-distance, and a putter disc. They come in tons of colors and designs. I submitted this photo to the frisbee golf disk modeling association and am waiting for a call back.
Step 3: Find a course.
You can usually find frisbee golf courses in large, public parks. They are popping up all over the place as the sport becomes more and more popular. If you can’t find an official course, make your own by aiming at trees!
Just like normal golf, each hole has a par in frisbee golf. Par is the number of throws it should take to get the frisbee in the basket.
Step 5: Throw the frisbee!
Just look at that form!
Any Frisbee Golf players out there?
