Blue Gum Reserve Frisbee Golf Course


What is Frisbee Golf?

Frisbee Golf, otherwise known as Disc Golf, is played much like traditional golf. Instead of a ball and clubs, players use a frisbee or disc. The object of the game is to complete each hole in the fewest number of throws. A plastic frisbee (or disc) is thrown from a tee area to an elevated metal basket (the hole). Generally, a course is 9 or 18 frisbee pole holes (baskets) long. Players start at one hole and complete the course in order, playing through to the last hole. The player with lowest total cumulative score wins.

It is easy to learn, a healthy activity, and accessible to people of all ages and fitness levels. It can be played year round in all climates. If you can throw a frisbee and you like to have fun, you can play Frisbee Golf.
