Swimming and Fishing

Disc Golf

Disc golf is a popular individual game with a Frisbee (disc). The effort of a player is to reach the target by as few throws as possible. The target in Disc golf is a special basket (Discatcher).

Brief rules of Disc golf:
The disc is thrown from designated “throw spots” (Tee Off), and the flight to the basket situated in average in the distance of 50-150 m is accompanied by various obstacles (trees, shrubs, pond, stream, vertical elevations). The winner is the person who manages to play the whole course, consisting mainly of 9 and 18 “holes”, with the lowest number of throws, where:
Birdie – if someone manages to do it with two throws
Par is a “hole” played with three throws
Bogey – if four throws
Double bogey – five throws
Hole in One or Ace if someone succeeds with one throw. (The terminology comes from the classic golf).

The discs differ from other Frisbees in size (diameter only 20-22 cm), but especially by their diversity, on the basis of which we divide discs according to the length of a throw into:
Driver - used especially for the longest throws from Tee Off
Mid-Range - designed for medium distances
Approach - used for short accurate throws to the basket
Putter, by which we finish into the basket.
