What is Disc Golf?
Disc golf is played much like traditional golf. Instead of a ball and clubs, however, players use a flying disc, or Frisbee®. The sport was formalized in the 1970’s, and shares with “ball golf” the object of completing each hole in the fewest number of strokes (or, in the case of disc golf, fewest number of throws). A golf disc is thrown from a tee area to a target which is the “hole”. The hole can be one of a number of disc golf targets; the most common is called a Pole Hole®, an elevated metal basket.
Golf is more than just a game.
Many corporations and businesses may think eliminating golf from their program is an easy way to cut costs, when in reality it’s a fairly inexpensive way to accomplish multiple goals.
Whether your attendees are avid golfers or first timers, with the right approach it can be a successful way to encourage camaraderie and let people get to know one another outside the boardroom and office.
Staff members at most golf courses are experienced in creating customized golf outings that are fun for all levels of players. In planning your event you can solicit the avid golfers to be team captains and assist in making the other inexperienced teammates feel comfortable.
