In case you are asking “What is Disc Golf?” Here is a brief description

   As the name implies, it is a cousin to the game of Golf, or Ball Golf (talking with Disc Golfers was the first time I heard the term Ball Golf!).
   It is played in rounds with “holes”. Generally, a course is made up of 9 or 18 holes, each with its own Par, or number of shots desired.
Instead of using golf clubs and balls aiming for a hole, disc golf players use
discs, (just like a Frisbee, but a little higher-tech) and aim for a disc golf basket instead of a hole.
Discs come in slightly different sizes and weights. They have the same names and uses as Golf clubs -  Drivers, Midrange and Putters.
   The object is, of course, to complete each hole in the fewest number of throws, starting from a tee area and finishing with the disc coming to rest in the basket.
So basically, t
he sport is played using the same general rules, terminology, and etiquette as traditional golf, just without the high cost of playing.

Disc Golf came to Kanab Utah just a couple of years ago. You are going to love this course at Jackson Reservoir!

We recently went out to Jackson to check out the Disc Golf campout and Tournament. What a fun day. We learned so much and had a great time visiting with, and learning from the participants.
