Disc Golf Courses Around the World
The beautiful weather is almost here again! That means it is time to start planning your outdoor activities. A fun, but perhaps unfamiliar outdoor activity you may want to consider is disc golf. It's a fast-growing sport worldwide with rules similar to the traditional game, which essentially make disc golf the frisbee version of golf. Players have to complete a specific course in as few throws as possible with the ultimate goal of reaching the pole hole, a round metal basket on a stand.
Disc golf courses can be found in a variety of locations: around the beach, in the woods or large open fields. Disc golf can be played anywhere a pole hole can be found.
More and more people are discovering the sport, both professionally and at an amateur level. Given it is an accessible, relaxed way to keep fit, it's no surprise why. The pandemic also helped accelerate the growth of the sport thanks to its outdoor setting where players can be easily spaced out. Disc golf is easy to learn, fun for young and old and can be enjoyed at all levels. Furthermore, many disc golf courses are free and, therefore, accessible to everyone. The fact that disc golf is easy to learn, however, does not mean that it's easy to master. Many elements influence the way disc golf is played. For this reason, it remains a challenge every time and it never gets boring. As with most sports, practice makes perfect, which is why we've created a list of the best disc golf courses worldwide.
