Why I Play Disc Golf:
Disc golf allows me to fulfill my competitive drive with a healthy outlet. The never ending search for the perfect shot, putt or round is what keeps me going. It’s a beautiful game and a great way to spend time outside with friends. And… it’s really inexpensive!

Tip: Putt like it doesn’t matter.
