Disc Golf is rapidly becoming a popular sport that originated out of Frisbee’s®. It started out with Frisbee lovers just aiming at anything that was available to practice accuracy and skill level. Disc Golf really caught on and evolved into a more structured sport, similar to a golf. Players use specially-made discs designated for disc golf and aim for the hole which is on a pole suspended off the ground by chains. The “holes” or “baskets” are referred to as disc pole holes. The object of the sport is similar to golf and the object is to get your disk in the hole, or basket, with the fewest throws possible. Player with the fewest throws wins. Courses range from 9 to 24 holes and can be played at more than 2,500 courses across the United States. Disc Golf is a great sport for any age or skill level. The sport has become so popular it has gone pro with hundreds of sanctioned tournaments worldwide.
Hansen Hill Recreation Authority is now offering two Disc Golf courses. Both courses were established and funded by the Grayling Rotary Club. The fee to play is by suggested donation of $2 which players can leave at the donation tube located at the starting hole.
