Disc golf is played a lot like traditional golf. Instead of a ball and clubs, players use a disc or frisbee instead. The sport was invented in the 1970's, and shares with normal golf the goal of completing each hole in the fewest number of strokes or throws. A golf disc is thrown from a tee area to a target which is the "hole". the hole can be one of a number of disc golf targets; the most common is called a ,Disc Catcher, an elevated metal basket. As a player throws down the fairway, they must make their next shot from the spot where the previous throw has landed. The trees and other natural landmarks located in and around the fairways make the game more challenging with obstacles for the disc golfer. Lastly the putt lands in the basket or chains and the hole is completed. Disc golf has its fair share of joys and frustrations that come natural with playing the game. The more you play the more joy there is rather then frustrations. Most courses are free unlike normal golf the only cost is the cost of buying the discs you want to use. As the popularity of this sport grows the number of courses and players will grow it will become better known throughout the world.
