There’s no denying it, the growth of disc golf has made America take notice. More and more people pick up discs and head to a local course every year. .

Played much like traditional golf in terms of rules, scoring, and etiquette; disc golf differs by throwing a specialized plastic disc off the tee and eventually putting out into a chain-catching metal basket.

Disc golf also departs from traditional golf in its affordability to play.
