‘Disc’over some outdoor fun with disc golf

Entertainment and activities | January 29, 2024

You may have put your clubs away for the season, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a round of golf – disc golf that is! People of all fitness levels have been playing disc golf since 1970, and the sport continues to grow in popularity locally and internationally. Disc golf is similar to traditional golf, with a few twists. Players throw discs or frisbees into metal baskets mounted on the ground instead of using clubs to hit a ball into a hole.

Mississauga currently has two outdoor disc golf courses that residents can play at for free year-round. You just need to bring your own frisbee and have fun! And the best part? You won’t have to hunt for your ball.

How to play

Players throw a disc or frisbee from a tee-off area into a metal basket. The goal of the game is to make each throw in the fewest tries. You can play disc golf on your own or competitively with a group. The player with the lowest total tries wins. A game lasts between 30-45 minutes on average, but it all depends on how long you want to play!

Get active this winter 

With the colder weather here, spending time outdoors and getting active is good for your physical and mental well-being. Whether you’re just starting or perfecting your throw, we encourage you to play disc golf. Remember to dress for the weather and wear comfortable footwear.
