Are you tired of the usual Frisbee game and looking for something new and challenging? With Spring in full swing, the weather has never been more beautiful for a game of disc golf — and just by chance, the world’s largest disc golf weekend is happening on May 4-5. It’s the best time to learn about the sport and challenge your skills on fun courses. For those that know little of the sport, it’s basically a combination a golf and Frisbee in one. There are a series of pole “holes,” of which you try to throw the disc into with the fewest number of strokes. Just like in golf, there are a number of obstacles and terrains you will have to navigate around.
Why Play Disc Golf?
Besides from having a great time, disc golf has been gaining popularity because of its relative affordability (compared to golf) and lucrative fun (compared to normal Frisbee throwing). It takes the best of both sports and combines them. In Columbia, there are a number of disc golf courses for both beginners and professionals. Places like Earlewood and Owens Field offer challenging fairways for experts to score on while more beginner courses in Seven Oaks and the Lake Murray Golf Center provide new players with a fun experience.
The World’s Biggest Disc Golf Weekend
Starting Saturday, May 4th, is the world’s biggest disc golf weekend. Throughout the world, players and fans will all be hitting the course to celebrate the fun of the sport. Columbia’s Disc Golf Club is inviting all players and people who want to learn about the sport to join them at the Crooked Creek Disc Golf Course in Chapin, SC (click here to directions). The tournament starts at 9 a.m. and the WBDGW will be providing lunch after the first round of disc golf. For more information, click here.
