Disc golf is a sport whose popularity has grown over the last few years. With rules similar to traditional golf, players throw a disc from a tee-off area into a metal basket mounted in the ground. The object of the game is to complete each hole in the fewest number of throws.
The proposed courses are designed for beginners and families, and can be played physically distanced.
The installation of the disc golf courses is anticipated in summer 2021.
The courses are smaller than the traditional 18-hole disc golf course.
Dellwood Park is a 6-hole course and Spruce Park is a 4-hole course.
Disc golf FAQs
What is disc golf?
Disc golf is similar to traditional golf, but instead of golf clubs and balls, disc golf players use disc golf discs and aim for a disc golf basket. The basket is a pole extending up from the ground with chains and a basket where the disc lands. The object of the game is to complete each hole in the fewest number of throws, starting from a tee area and finishing with the disc landing in the basket.
Players start at hole one and complete the course in order, playing through to the last hole. The player with the lowest total cumulative throws wins.
