Disc Golf

Disc Golf at Steen Park, Aylmer

Disc golf, not Frisbee golf.

Frisbee is a registered name belonging to the Wham-O Corporation and is the typical toys you are used to seeing at the beach or the park. Frisbees are easy to throw, catch, and fun to play with.

A disc golf disc, is not as large, not so soft, and is not something you want to catch. If you get hit with one, you might even get hurt, so be very careful.

Now that you know what to throw, let's talk about the game. Disc golf is similar to normal golf, in that individuals work to get from a tee box to a target. Instead of using balls and clubs, disc golfers throw a variety of discs. Instead of having a hole in the ground with a flag pin, disc golfers aim at a specially created basket. These targets consist of a pole that supports a set of chains that work to catch the flying disc and a basket underneath. The goal is to hit the chains with your disc and have it remain suspended in the chains or in the basket.

In golf, golfers use a variety of clubs to approach the hole and put the ball in. Likewise, disc golfers use a variety of discs to approach the target. There are three general classes of discs: drivers, mid-range, and putters.

In addition to the three classes of discs, there are a variety of disc designs that affect how the disc travels in the air. Discs can be overstable, stable, or understable. For a right handed backhand throw an overstable disc will curve to the left throughout the flight. A stable disc will fly mostly straight and then fade left as it slows down. An understable disc will curve to the right through most of the flight, but fade a bit left as it slows. A golfer can use these discs to navigate difficult holes.

One of the best things about disc golf is that once you have equipment, it is free to play! Check out Aylmer's Disc Golf Course in Steen Park.
