Disc Golf Course
There is a disc golf course at Tom Brown Park and I did a little research about this game and found out that disc golf is played just like traditional golf, but instead of a ball and clubs, a flying disc (frisbee) is used. The object of the game is to complete each "hole" in the fewest number of throws. The disc is thrown from a tee area to a target (or "hole"). In the first picture you can see what the target looks like. This target is called a pole hole which is an elevated metal basket. Players move down the fairway making each consecutive shot from the spot where the previous throw landed. Like on a regular golf course, obstacles are provided in the form of hills, trees and shrubs. The "hole" is completed when the disc lands in the basket. Click on the second picture to enlarge it and read all the rules. This looks like it would be a fun game for anyone, including kids.
By the way, I have been meaning to mention that I met one of my fellow bloggers in person this past weekend! Her name is Darla and she lives near my daughter's house. Darla has the most beautiful yard and her flowers are just gorgeous! I have been following her blog, More Family and Flowers, for about a year now and if you love flowers, then you really should go visit her. My grandkids enjoyed meeting her too. Thanks Darla!
