Disc golf is similar to normal golf, in that individuals work to get from a tee box to a target. Instead of using balls and clubs, disc golfers throw a variety of discs. Instead of having a hole in the ground with a flag pin, disc golfers aim at a specially created basket. These targets consist of a pole that supports a set of chains that work to catch the flying disc and a basket underneath. The goal is to hit the chains with your disc and have it remain suspended in the chains or in the basket.

In golf, golfers use a variety of clubs to approach the hole and put the ball in. Likewise, disc golfers use a variety of discs to approach the target. There are three general classes of discs: drivers, mid-range, and putters.

In addition to the three classes of discs, there are a variety of disc designs that affect how the disc travels in the air. Discs can be overstable, stable, or understable. For a right handed backhand throw an overstable disc will curve to the left throughout the flight. A stable disc will fly mostly straight and then fade left as it slows down. An understable disc will curve to the right through most of the flight, but fade a bit left as it slows. A golfer can use these discs to navigate difficult holes.

Aylmer’s Steen Park is home to an 18-hole, 54 par Disc Golf Course that’s free to play.
