What is Disc Golf, you ask? Disc Golf is a game that was invented in the late 60's, following the invention of the Wham-O Frisbee. At first, the pioneers of the sport threw the Frisbee at wooden poles in parks. The sport progressed over the years, and changes took place in in equipment and rules. Instead of using a big, light Frisbee, new smaller, heavier discs began to cruise in the range of 500 to 800 feet. The targets also changed. The tone poles were replaced by metal baskets, and the PDGA (Professional Disc Golf Assoociation) was formed.
