In this article, we will discuss the history of Frisbee Golf, how to play the game and some of the benefits that come with playing it.
The History of Frisbee Golf
Disc golf is not a new sport by any means. People have been playing it for over a century. The first recorded instance of disc golf was in 1891 when two men in Scotland started playing a game called “Flinging the Frisbie.” The Frisbee itself wasn’t invented until 1948, so these guys were using all sorts of different objects to play their game. It wasn’t until the 1970s that disc golf became popular in the United States.
How to Play Frisbee Golf
If you want to play Frisbee golf, you need a Frisbee and somewhere to play. The basic rules are as follows:
– Players take turns throwing their Frisbees at a target.
– The player with the most points at the end of the game wins.
– If you throw your Frisbee into a water hazard, you lose a point.
– If you throw your Frisbee onto someone else’s property, they can claim the Frisbee, and you must take another turn.
The target in Frisbee golf is usually a metal or plastic basket. The Frisbee must be thrown into the basket to score a point. Different Frisbees are designed for use in Frisbee golf, but any Frisbee can be used.
