Doing Things and Stuff: Disk Golf

Doing Things and Stuff is a new weekly articular about things you can do with your extra time, something to do while you're not dealing with school. This week, the topic is disk Golf. The name of the game says it all, its golf played with a disk (frisby). Just like golf, you start of by t-ing off. you have to get you disk into the basket or "hole". There are even different types of disks such as long range drivers, fairway drivers and putters. Its not as complicated as it sounds, and its a whole lot of fun. Check out the video to see what I'm talking about.

Aside from the initial cost of buying a few disks, which are very cheap, most courses are free. They tend to be in parks and on college campuses. To find a course near you, check out PDGA course directory. I was surprised at the number of courses I found in my area. So get some friends together and check this out.

  7. I've never ever heard of this type of thing before. I guess it'd be worth a shot to try it at least once with a couple friends.
