Friday Fictioneers — Disc Golf

img_1240Bob opened his car’s trunk and pulled out two Frisbees. “Are you ready!” he asked Andy.

“Ready for what?” Andy asked. “Did we drive all the way out here to toss Frisbees?”

“We are at the city’s only official disc golf course,” Bob said.

“What is disc golf?” Andy asked.

“It’s like regular golf, except with Frisbees rather than clubs and balls,” Bob explained. “Follow me,” he said.

They walked to a pole with chains hanging from a ring on top. “This contraption is the hole. The object is to get the disc into this basket with the fewest tosses.”

    There are a couple of courses around where I live and for 5 years I’ve thought about playing but for some reason, haven’t. It looks fun!

        They have special discs to throw including short range “putters” and long range “drivers” so it probabably costs about $50 to get started but after that there isn’t any cost, I’ll set a goal to play within the next 5 years! Since you’re on borrowed time (your previous post today) you should try to play soon – very soon! Think of the irony – retired man died on frisbee golf coarse when an errant throw hits him in the temple!

    Thanks for explaining it – this prompt was the first time I’d heard of it.

      It was pretty popular around here a while back, but there aren’t too many disc golf courses these days.

    Played it a couple of times and am not that good at it, but it was fun. Definitely need to go when there is little wind.

    We have a couple of these in town. People seem to love them. I’ve never been very good at it. Ah, well.
