Frisbee is the ageless game and one of the disciplines in the sport of frisbee is Disc Golf. Disc Golf is played by millions of people all over the world and in 2020 has seen a huge amount of growth in large part because it’s easy to physically distance, it can be played year round, and it’s relatively inexpensive to get started.
Frisbee, but especially disc golf, is a great sport for developing physical literacy. The disc itself is incredibly versatile since there are more than 150 unique throws. Installing a disc golf course is relatively inexpensive compared to a tennis or basketball court, a (ball) golf course, or a skateboard park. In fact, disc golf can be played in a park using trees as objects (typically called object golf). The standard target is a disc golf basket, which comes in multiple versions including portable and permanent baskets.
