Stylin' on the Disc Golf Course
It is a popular pastime with our guests. And did we mention that there are both Semi-Pro and Pro Tours for Disc golf?
You could be honing your skills right here in the back fields, along with the deer and wild turkeys who frequently play through the course.
It also makes for a wonderful walk. The 'fairways' are mowed, so easy to find, and there is this lovely shady trail that connects the 'back course' to the final six...
Correct style and dress... well, that's up to you.
Laura, Lauren, Jay and Roger were all displaying superb style.
They have been on the course almost every day of their stay.
The game, for those unfamiliar, is played just like golf, only different. The holes (and i can't really call them holes, since they are above ground) are targets, with a base basket and a surround of light chains that stop the disc and drop it into the basket. You start at the Tee and throw towards the target. Three different weights of disc give you the option of the far-flying Driver, the more accurate Mid-Distance disc and the heavy Putter.
It is scored by tracking how many throws you need to land the disc in the basket. No need for fancy gloves, spiked shoes, heavy bags of clubs... Just walk and toss.
And check out the superb action Roger is demonstrating. We think he could be on the Pro Tour, easy...
