What is Disc Golf?
According to the Professional Disc Golf Association, disc golf is played with a special disc and basket and shares with golf the object of completing each hole in the fewest strokes (or, in the case of disc golf, fewest throws).
A golf disc is thrown from a tee area to a target, which is the “hole.” As a player progresses down the fairway, he or she must make each consecutive throw from the spot where the previous throw landed. The trees, shrubs, and terrain changes located in and around the fairways provide challenging obstacles for the golfer. Finally, the “putt” lands in the basket and the hole is completed.
There is a 3 “hole” disc golf course at the Black Swamp Nature Center, near the building and the pollinator bed. This course was installed thanks to the assistance of students from Paulding High School.
