What is Disc Golf?

What is Disc Golf? Quite possibly your next addiction.

Disc Golf follows the same basic rules as Ball Golf, except for a few crucial differences: From the tee (typically a concrete slab) you throw a disc (frisbee) towards the basket (see picture below). You repeat this process as often as necessary until the disc comes to rest in the basket. One of the ironies of Disc Golf is that you get to do it less each hole the better you get at it.

What makes Disc Golf wonderful (apart from e.g. spending time outside with a group of friends, searching for that perfect flight) is that it is easy to learn but hard to master. So stop reading this and get your beautiful ass out on the course – preferably Sloterpark and if you do, let us know! DiscSportAmsterdam@gmail.com

If you need some discs to get you started (or just want one of these beauties), we have Dynamic Discs Emac Truths and Getaways as club discs – send us an email if you want one!

For a broader range of discs, including Innova, Discmania, Daredevil Discs, and Millenium, have a look on www.FrisbeeWinkel.nl.
