The intent of the game
Disc golf is the flying disc variant of the game of golf. Instead of with a ball and (many different) golf- clubs this game is played with a flying disc. Players traverse a course making as few throws as possi- ble in reaching objects placed strategically throughout the area. Many terms you will encounter in ball golf are also familiar in disc golf. For ex- ample: tee, hole, hole in one, putt, approach, birdie, par, drive. Disc golf is often played in a public park where many obstacles such as trees and water are to be met. As such it is a recreational sport in the open air, for people of all ages and of all skill levels.
