Disc Golf (noun) - "a game in which a concave plastic disc is thrown into each of a series of metal baskets situated on an outdoor course, the object being to complete the course using the fewest possible throws."
Disc golf was first recorded to have taken place in Bladworth, Saskatchewan in 1926, but didn't really catch on until the 1960's thanks to Wham-O discs! It began with "tonal" courses, or courses where you threw at targets that made a noise when struck. 1975 saw the invention of the Disc Golf "Pole Hole" (aka, the modern basket target), and the beginning of the explosion of the sport. Fast forward from the original 3 courses at Toronto - ON, Rochester - NY, and Berkley - CA, to today, and there are now more than 9000 courses across Canada and the United States!
Unlike other sports, disc golf is comparatively inexpensive, and land needs are simple and flexible. Our baskets are manufactured to the highest level of quality and durability, and to back that up come with up to a 25 year warranty even in permanent outdoor installations! Smaller courses can opt for temporary baskets that can be brought out when needed, or we can even construct a set of "tonal" targets.
To top it off, courses require very little maintenance once installed, keeping the total cost of ownership lower than any other sport of this kind! There are a wide range of options for every budget, but at the end of the day, disc golf is one of the most economical sports you can choose to invest in either for your family or for your municipality!
Disc golf is played above the ground, not on it, so rocks, trees, and other natural obstacles are par for the course! The land we're privileged to work with will often dictate how the course is designed, in fact we encourage this. Our first step in designing a course is to identify the most striking natural features of your land, whether that be water features, old mature trees, rocks or other obstacles, and to ensure these natural treasures are celebrated and enhanced!
Once we're done carving out the actual course, forests are left healthier, soil compaction is minimized, and things like light and future growth are optimized... embracing the natural features makes for a balanced ecology!
People of all walks of life, from toddlers to seniors, can all play this fun, easy, and low impact sport, all without the time commitment of the "other golf"! It's common that a public 18 holes can take as little as 90 minutes to play, though on your private cottage or camp course, it may take just as long to get the kids to come in for meals once they're hooked!
For the same reason that people enjoy sports like "ball golf", where there is both a physical, but also a mental component, where fine tuning your technique, and making the right disc choice can make or break a hole, this sport can become incredibly addictive. It's also simple enough you can take out just a putter and spend some quality time with friends and family.
In the 70+ years we’ve been coming here, no change has had such a profound impact on the time we all spend here, or the amount we now use this property!Gord Snowdon
