Disc golf is a game of Frisbee/Disc set against the game of golf. Basically we have a selection of small discs specifically designed to be used for the game. There are different disc designed to do different jobs. You have a driver, an approach disc and a putter. We at Lloyd park have built a course that has "pole holes". Pole holes are a chain linked basket on a pole. This gives us a target to shoot for.
Most of the rules are similar to golf but we don't have a dress code and we don't charge the earth (or in fact anything) to play. The discs are inexpensive and you only really need 3 to start.
ITS ALL ABOUT HAVING FUN!!! BUT its not as easy as it looks... like ball golf the challenge is to go around the course in the fewest shots possible. Sorry, but we've stuck trees and bushes and stuff in the way and the wind can make your shot an absolute pig to judge correctly... and once you've tried it ... YOU'RE GONNA LOVE IT!
SO, OBVIOUSLY, YOU WANNA HAVE A GO... WHAT DO YOU DO NEXT? You contact us and I or one of our number will arrange a date to meet up at Lloyd Park, show you the course and teach you the basics of hurling discs. We'll bring some discs to let you have a go with and when you decide this is the sport for you we'll point you in the right direction for you to purchase the discs that you need. And then YOU'RE HOOKED and the World of Disc Golf gets stronger and we get another player to go round with.
Who Can Play? EVERYONE... Kids, mums, dads, boys, girls, stroppy adolescents, adults ripe for a mid life crisis, people who want to get some exercise, people who want some fresh air, rich people, the rest of us!! competitive people, students, EVERYONE!
