How to play disc golf even without a course

Whether you happened to catch a glimpse of it on YouTube or you were lucky enough to see a tournament in person during a vacation, if you’ve been recently exposed to disc golf there’s likely no turning back! Most people who begin playing find that they become rather addicted to the game, playing as often as they can, consuming knowledge like a machine, and nearly eating, sleeping, and breathing the sport.

But what if you’ve recently fallen in love with the game yet don’t have a course anywhere near you? Those of us who are fortunate enough to live close to our favourite layouts might consider this to be a true nightmare, but for many people around the world, playing a round of disc golf might involve more time in the car than it’s even worth. Can you still enjoy your favourite sport without a course? We say yes!

Getting The Tools

While a disc golf course is certainly nice to have when you’re interested in playing a round, it’s not as essential as having actual discs to play with. If you’re wondering about ‘disc golf supplies near me’, no matter where you live, you can head over to The Frisbee Shop to pick up anything your heart desires. If you’re newer to the sport you might want to start out with less expensive discs, while more experienced disc golfers could be on the hunt for backups to their most trusted molds. Whatever the case, The Frisbee Shop has what you need.

For some, heading out to a field or even putting in the backyard is enough disc golf for them without actually visiting a course. In order to hone in on your skills and make the most of your time, having at least one basket is crucial. Again, swing over and purchase one of several RAD basket options online and have it shipped straight to your door.

The Old School Way

If you’re on a budget and only have one or two discs to play with, all is not lost. You can still enjoy a full-fledged game of disc golf at your local park with some of your closest friends or even embark upon a solo round if you choose. How can this be done without baskets you ask?

an image of group of people walking in a disc golf course

The forefathers of disc golf didn’t always have baskets around, and before they were officially invented and mass produced, they would head to a local park and make an object course. Start by deciding where you tee off on hole 1, and select a tree, pole, or another stationary object to use as the “basket.” Instead of sinking a putt, hitting the object with your disc becomes the goal.

You can continue around the property this way by literally making up your own holes, and can repeat this layout or change it up each time you visit. While it may not be quite the same as playing on a real disc golf course, it will still help you to improve your form, accuracy, and scratch your disc golf itch until you have time to make it to a course once again.

Use the people around you

Disc golf can be a struggle if you feel you’ve nowhere to turn to improve. But believe it or not, those golfers you idolize were once in your shoes. All you need to do is get your feet wet in the disc golf scene to make introductions with highly skilled players.

Monthly Leagues: Many clubs around Australia offer disc golf leagues, some for recreation and some for competitions. Disc golf leagues for recreation are usually varied in skill-level, which means that you’ll have the chance to meet both new and seasoned players. Some clubs are sponsored by local businesses and invite disc golfers with more experience to their championships. Here’s a list of Australian Disc Golf Clubs – a great place to start.

Putting Leagues: People from all over tend to drift toward putting leagues when their short games could use a little work. Not only are putting leagues set up around various disc golf parks, but some are also held indoors. That’s right. You don’t have to go out in the blistering cold or the scorching heat to practice. Many putting leagues offer incentives as well, which means that tournament champs and professionals flock to these gatherings to be a part of the action. You can definitely pick up some tips making the rounds at a putting league.

Reach out to a Pro: People like praise. It’s one of our innate desires. So if you’re thinking you can’t make a connection with local pros, think again! Professionals like to make the rounds to different disc golf courses, and meeting them through your monthly or putting leagues is only a matter of time.  Professionals can not only give you advice in recreation, but they can also give you tips to make it to a professional level!

Team Building: Though you can definitely play disc golf on your own, there are so many benefits to playing with a team! Disc golf is unique because it requires you and your teammates to judge each other on your tee-offs and style. Teams enhance your game by offering friendly feedback. Plus, you’ll raise the bar by going out and playing with them! Teams are a great way to give you practice and keep you heading out for more! If you’d like to organise a clinic, get in touch with RAD here.

Move up in Skill: It should be fairly obvious that if you move up in ranks you get to meet better players. Challenging yourself by competing against better players forces you to improve. You will also get invited to more events, which means that you’ll get more practice! I know what you’re thinking: easier said than done, right? Check in with clubs and your own leagues to make it happen! If you believe you can, you can!

Get in there

If you’ve made it onto a disc golf course, you’ve made your first step! All others who have spent more than a few weekends on the courses, you’re already mostly there. Get yourself out there! It’s not hard to be one of the greats when you spend your time on a sport that you love!

Put your best putt forward

Put your best putt forward

When was the last time you felt truly confident in your putt? It takes practice to become one of the pros, but it shouldn’t become a hang-up for you out there on the course. Let’s look at some ways to improve your end-game.

What is Disc Golf putting and why is it important?

For those of you are new to the game, putting is the final 10-ish metres to the basket; essentially the final throw—or throws—of the game. These final meters are referred to as the putting circle. Putting requires a steady hand and disc.

Why is it important? Ask any kind of golfer, and they’ll tell you the same thing: this is how you “sink the hole,” as it were. The adage “drive for show, putt for dough” really becomes relevant here. Though you’ll likely get a mix of advice of what matters most, many disc golfers agree that putting is the most important because it can shave those extra points off par and save your game from previous drive blunders.

Disc Golf Putting Types

Searching the internet for putting styles will yield millions of results. Everyone seems to have their own style that works for them. But their styles may not work for you. Let’s explore some simple ways to start off your repertoire.

  • The Spin Putt: Though professionals disagree on what type of putting is the best, it’s safe to say that the spin putt is widely regarded as a putting favorite for beginners. Throw the disc with a spin creating a linear flight path toward the basket. This putt is stable and the easiest to master. It tends to be easier to keep a disc in flight with the spin putt because it is less affected by changes in the wind.
  • The Push Putt: Unlike the spin putt, the push putt starts from your lowered hand, essentially tossing the disc into the basket. The push putt still requires spin, so it’s far less stable than its counterpart. The nose of the disc turns up, allowing air to blow up underneath and make that disc hula. But, if you’re a fan of the granny shot, this one isn’t far off, which makes it a good starter.

Though there are many types of putting, and we’ll guarantee that the more you play the more you’ll learn, these are the most used for beginners, and are a staple for pros, too! If you’re unclear on what we mean by spin or push putts, go ask an expert, or check out the video from Eric McCabe here. Put both into practice and find your own style!

Getting Started In Disc Golf Is Easier Than You Think!

Getting Started In Disc Golf Is Easier Than You Think!

When was the last time you tried something new? It may have been painting or cooking, or perhaps you joined a sports team without knowing much at all about what you’d be doing. Take your mind back to the emotions you were feeling beforehand – there was likely a fair amount of excitement involved, but equally, there was anxiety and uncertainty around not wanting to do this thing in the wrong way, right?

an image of a man playing disc golf in a disc golf course

Believe it or not, many people feel that exact same way when it comes to disc golf. It’s a sport that’s not as widely known as football or basketball, and therefore it brings an air of mystery along with it. You may have driven past a disc golf course in the past and wanted to play but hesitated as you weren’t sure what to do – today we’re going to solve that problem once and for all.

Just Have A Go!

If you look at a professional level disc golf player, you’ll likely see that they have a lot of gear. A bag full of discs is always by their side and along with a towel, stool, scorecard, and more, it might seem a bit intimidating to get started, let alone expensive. Don’t worry – you’re not required to have this level of investment right off the bat, as disc golf can be played with literally just one disc.

an image of a disc golf store

Whether you borrow one from a friend or buy the cheapest one at your local sporting goods store, simply bring one disc to the course if you’re hesitant about disc golf in general. While there are special discs for different types of shots, this one Frisbee will give you enough of a feel for the game to see what you think about it.

Then, once you fall in love with it like the rest of us have, you can take the time and money to invest in a disc golf starter kit and eventually an entire bag full of your very own discs.

When And Where?

an image of group of people holding a disc

Another challenge that people often foresee when wanting to try disc golf is that they don’t know when to actually go and play. If there are other people on the course, can you join too? Are there specific times when you can play, or will you run into issues of not having a reservation?

Rest assured, most courses are open to all players during daylight hours, and the bulk of them are also free to play. The only exception might be if a tournament is taking place, but there will be plenty of signs letting you know that the course has been reserved for this special event.

The next time you feel inspired to try something new, grab a disc, a few friends, and head out to the nearest disc golf course. The entire sport places a focus on community and if other players are there, they will likely take some time to explain things to you and teach you the ropes. Don’t let disc golf feel intimidating, as it’s one of the few activities that is ideal for all ages!

Thinking Of Creating A Disc Golf Meet Up? Here’s Why You Should

Thinking Of Creating A Disc Golf Meet Up? Here’s Why You Should

Disc golf is one of the few sports out there that’s just as fun to play alone as it is with others. Since it’s a game that requires minimal equipment and allows you to compete against the most important person out there, yourself, many have found that it has become their favourite way to spend their leisure time. Yet whether you play rarely or hit the course several times per week, playing alone does get old after a while.

A huge part of why people love this sport so much has to do with the community aspect of playing, where disc golf lovers of all ages, experience levels, and athletic abilities can come together and play while having a great time. It’s in this vein that many people have started disc golf meet ups, leagues, and even official clubs. Here’s why creating such a group is awesome and how you can get started.

Enjoying Group Benefits

You may not share the same political views or have the same level of income as others out on the course, but when you’re playing disc golf, it really doesn’t matter. The sport brings like-minded people together to do one thing – enjoy this game we all love so much. Rather than waiting by the phone to be invited for a round, your local course serves as the perfect location to set up a regular meeting. You can keep things casual and call it a social league, create rules and ace pots and term it an official league, or jump through the hoops required to formalise a disc golf club.

No matter how you decide to do it, developing a disc golf meet up will strengthen the ties between players in the area and also show others in the community that this is a sport worth trying. One of the best ways to put your disc golf course on the map is to develop an attractive disc golf culture in your local area.

Getting Started

There are tons of ways to help get the word out about your disc golf meet up, and whether you want to use technology to further your cause or prefer more old school methods, either will likely get you the results you’re after. Try posting your meet up on a website or app designed for that exact kind of thing or create a Facebook event and invite everyone in the area that you know. If there’s a bulletin board at your course, post a flyer with details inviting everyone to attend.

It doesn’t much matter how you organise your meet up as long as you have the right idea in mind and create a space for both brand new players as well as more seasoned individuals. Getting to play disc golf with strangers who end up being your friends after 18 holes is one of the best things about the sport, so why not take a hand in making that dream a reality? Grab a few friends, set a time and a place, and get ready to help unite players in your community and beyond.

Looking For A Unique Activity? Try Disc Golf!

Looking For A Unique Activity? Try Disc Golf!

Sometimes the bonds we forge with people come from doing new and fun things together rather than just sitting side by side at work all day. While camaraderie and friendships can certainly be created anywhere, there’s just something about going through an experience with others that creates lasting memories and breaks down communication barriers.

While typical ideas like zip lining may be fun for some groups, such extreme activities may not always be appropriate. If you have a group of people, whether it’s co-workers, a church group, or a community service organisation, with varying levels of health, athletic ability, and even ages, what kinds of activities can you do?

Consider Disc Golf

A sport that’s fast becoming more and more popular around the world, disc golf is an all-inclusive activity that’s fun, challenging, and easy to learn. The idea is similar in many ways to traditional golf, where players attempt to get an object into a target with as few strokes as possible. However, instead of using a golf club and a ball, players use varying types of frisbees, called discs, and throw them from the tee area.

The disc golf basket design has chains that are used to catch the discs, and course layouts can vary dramatically from easy 9 hole options that let people grow their skillset all the way to long 18 hole areas that weave in and out of wooded sections and require both distance and technique in order to score well.

A Sport For All

Imagine having your next Christmas party on a disc golf course and letting everyone in the office compete for the best score. Perhaps whoever ends up with the best throw on a particular hole gets an extra day of paid vacation, or the person who has the most fun wins lunch at the office. Whatever you decide to do as a group to infuse a light-hearted sense of enjoyment into the game, the ease of play and light level of exercise will be attractive to all.

The sky is the limit when it comes to the ways you can integrate disc golf into your organisation, and it can even become the focal point at a family reunion, birthday party, or act as a weekly event for you and your best friends to get together and see who can score the lowest. With courses often found in public parks, getting to a disc golf course is incredibly easy and will provide a safe environment for even the youngest of children.

As if playing disc golf wasn’t great enough already, it’s a very low-cost option for hosting any type of team building or celebration. Most courses are free to play and many have discs available for rent. If your group is interested in the sport and wants to purchase discs of their own, only a handful are really required while you learn the game, and these also come at very affordable prices.

The next time you’re planning a company event, social outing, or just want something new to do on the weekend with your friends or family, head out to the disc golf course and play a round!

Starting Your Own Disc Golf League – Why Does It Matter?

Starting Your Own Disc Golf League – Why Does It Matter?

Whether you’ve just been bitten by the disc golf bug or you’ve played for longer than you care to admit, there’s one thing that we know to be true – there is no such thing as too much disc golf. Playing casual rounds by yourself or with friends is fun, and competing in tournaments can bring to light an entirely different side to the sport. But how else can you enjoy playing in an environment that blends the two?

Many people turn to disc golf leagues, as this format for play brings a host of benefits to local players, your club, and the sport as a whole. Let’s check out some of the reasons why starting a league in your area is a total no-brainer!

An image showing family playing disc golf frisbee in a park

A CLOSE-KNIT GROUP

Despite the fact that disc golfers are typically pretty friendly people, there doesn’t always seem to be a huge emphasis on community in some parts of the world. In many instances, you can head out to a course and without knowing a single person there, thus experiencing a bit of isolation around the sport. This is where leagues come in quite handy, as they help to build your community, promote friendships between players, and offer an easy way to bring new players to the sport.

Imagine hanging out with your best friends for a few hours once a week – that’s basically what a league entails. Sure, you’re hitting your favourite course and throwing in some friendly competition along the way, but it’s the ideal way to blend socialization with regular exercise. Depending on your particular goals, you can even structure your league in such a way that includes handicapped scoring, offering players of literally any skill level the chance to come out without feeling overwhelmed.

GOOD FOR THE CLUB

Disc golf clubs often enjoy hosting leagues because it brings about a wealth of benefits for their particular group. You can use part of each week’s entry fees to raise money for new baskets or tee pads or to help print up bag tags and t-shirts. Many times a league will have a specific cause in mind that they raise money for, and these goals can include assisting local groups or charities abroad.

Tying in tournaments into an established league is also quite handy, as you already have a core group of people to advertise to. Simply plan a few events each season on top of your pre established league night and you’ll be surprised by how quickly your local disc golf scene grows. Not only will your course be getting some welcome attention but the players in your community will continue to improve upon their skill set and form an even deeper connection with the sport.

The next time you find yourself wishing that you had more opportunities to play disc golf in your area, consider starting a league of your own or teaming up with an established club to get the ball rolling. After a little planning and some word of mouth, you’ll soon see nothing but benefits!

Disc Golf – Do The Numbers Tell The Story?

Disc Golf – Do The Numbers Tell The Story?

If you’ve been in the disc golf scene for any period of time, you’ve more than likely heard the phrase “grow the sport.” It’s a mission that’s near and dear to many of our hearts. We believe that disc golf is such a fantastic activity and it should be far more mainstream than it currently is.

While we’re only just starting to see snippets of disc golf on sports channels (it’s a big deal when we make it on SportsCenter’s Top 10), the popularity of the game is far less than that of basketball or football. However, when you review any data that’s out there, it does show that the sport is growing by leaps and bounds compared to previous years.

Yet how do these numbers translate into the real development of the sport? Do the messages being communicated portray an accurate idea of where the trajectory of disc golf is going?

Facts And Figures

RAD Recreation Activity Design The Governances for Disc Golf in Australia and AbroadSome of the major highlights of the PDGA’s accomplishments over the last decade or so include a massive amount of new courses across the globe. While various local groups and organisations are usually the ones involved in design and installation, the integration of a course anywhere adds to the growing list that the PDGA maintains.

At the end of 2018, the PDGA documented that there were over 8,000 courses across the globe, that’s an increase of 7.8% from 2017, or around two new courses per day! The US boasts the most places to play with 6,316 courses installed, but with Finland’s 479 courses across an area that’s 1/29th the size of the US, it’s quickly becoming a mecca of disc golf. While there’s always the chance for an “off the grid” course to be installed somewhere on the private property, these numbers are usually pretty accurate.

Membership vs. Players

Here’s where things get interesting! As the data notes that at the end of 2018, active membership was approaching 46,457 individuals. Detailed information that reviews tournaments, website analytics, media activity, and more, highlights the popularity of the sport. This is often used as a selling point when approaching potential sponsors or event locations. When you’re a disc golfer, you’re regularly in a position of having to prove that the sport is legitimate.

While the membership number is certainly specific and only denotes individuals who actually pay to maintain their PDGA number and ratings, it doesn’t really give an accurate idea as to the explosive growth of the sport. Take for example Texas, which is listed on the document as a leading US state. They estimate that 3196 members are active in that area. However, a brief look on Facebook at various Texas disc golf clubs indicates a much larger audience.

The small print

Only after careful examination does one see the extremely small print at the bottom of the PDGA report: “An estimated 8 – 12 million players have played disc golf; two million are estimated to be regular players.” Why isn’t this statistic featured more prominently when disc golf is discussed in mainstream sports arenas?

When it comes to growing the sport, it might make more sense to shift our focus away from the PDGA numbers. After all, they only represent a small portion of the number of players who play competition disc golf.

Wouldn’t it make sense for other major organisations to jump on board with disc golf knowing that nearly two million people regularly play?

How do you think the numbers should tell the story?

Get a grip

Get a grip

Your grip on your disc can be life or death on the course. Okay, we’re not saying that someone is holding a gun to your head and telling you to land the next throw, but if you’re going for a championship award, you should know how to toss a disc in every possible scenario.

There are a variety of grips that can improve your skill and add a bit of flare. The key, however, and we all know it, is practice. Fine-tuning your grip on a disc can show a world of difference, and it’ll encourage you to spend more time on the course. Here is an overview of some basic and some advanced handling. With any luck, your variation of these grips will become second nature.

Backhand

Power grip

The power grip, like its name entails, is the basic grip of champions. Many pros begin a drive with this grip, and it’s easy to see why. The power grip provides a steadier handhold than most, and it greatly reduces the risk of early release. Curl all four fingers under the rim of the disc and place your thumb firmly where the flight plate meets the rim. The palm of your had should be raised above the top of the disc to reduce air resistance. Make sure your fingers are tight together and maintain a firm grip on the disc.

   

Images Source

Fan grip

Most commonly used for putting, the index-finger-wrapped approach provides a steady throw for long approaches. It is moderately similar to the power grip, but your fingers aren’t so tightly wound. Your thumb remains on top, but this time your fingers spread under the disc. Your index finger then curls under both your second and third fingers to assure long throws.

Its fancier cousin, the index-finger-at-bottom-edge-of-disc grip has everything in common except for one thing: your index finger curls around the bottom edge, further away from the rest of your fingers. This throw is particularly useful for putting and is super accurate.

     Image Source

Modified power grip

There’s a reason we’ve talked about this one after both of those above. We’ve got the funky hybrid of the two: the modified power grip. Like the power grip, your last two fingers wind tightly around the inside of the rim, but like the fan grip, your index and second fingers are held in the fan position. As always, make sure to have that thumb stuck to the top.

   

Two-finger power grip

You might say we take pride in our power grips, and you’d be right. Much like the modified power grip, your pointer, middle finger, and thumb are in the traditional power grip position, but your other two fingers nearly hover off the disc. Just like any good power grip, this position is perfect for driving.

Image Source

Three-finger power grip

Alright. It must be saying something if we’re hung up on this type of grip. The three-finger power grip is nearly identical to the two-finger power grip, but this time your ring finger just feels like following a crowd. It is positioned along with your index and middle fingers. In this scenario, we couldn’t care less what you do with your pinky, as long as it’s flashy.

Image Source

Forehand

Power grip

AKA the super-stupendous grip of kings, are we right? The power grip for forehand throws is vastly different than backhand. With this grip, you place your middle finger along the rim and your pointer finger curls for a little extra hold. Your other two fingers will hang off the disc. This throw is important for those long shots.

 

Stacked fingers

If you’re a disc golf fanatic, you’ll know that the stacked fingers grip is one of the most popular of forehand shots. While forehand shots are generally considered difficult, the stacked fingers position is considered easier than most other grips. Your pointer and middle fingers are in a flat stacked position along the inner rim, and your other two digits are held straight or slightly curled. Again, make sure your thumb should be firmly held at the top of the disc.

 

Pointer finger to the middle

For this one, consider the last time you’ve told someone to “peace,” and use it in your game. Your pointer finger extends straight to the middle of the underside of the disc, and your middle finger remains straight along the inner rim. This crazy grip is usually best for touch shots and when you don’t need full power.

One finger

If you’re looking for a gentle shot, this is perfect. The one-finger grip has, you guessed it, your pointer finger straight along the inside of the rim while the other three hang free. Pinch the disc between your thumb and finger, and remember, your thumb should be tight against the top.

Image Source 

Overhead

Thumber

Overhead shots are for those pesky tricky shots. Have you ever tried to throw a disc through a thick chunk of trees? Instead of shooting around, the thumber is thrown over, as the style suggests. Hold your disc vertically and wrap your hand in a fist. Use your thumb and curled index finger to hold against the rim.

Tomahawk

This disc throw is almost exactly like the thumber, but the way you throw the disc is slightly different. Keep your wrist open and your throw loose. After that, it’s up to you!

  

Image Source

Approach

When holding a disc, it’s best to think about your grip this way: don’t strangle it. All the techniques shown above require different strengths in handling the discs, but you need to be cautious about how easily a disc may leave your hand.

If you grip too tightly, you’ll develop a tendency to drive your throw into the ground, but hold too loosely and you’ll usually have to suffer from what we’ll define as ERS (Early Release Syndrome).

Extras

Scooby

Just like all great sports, great names come in the mix. With your disc upside down, tuck your thumb over the rim with your index finger against the rim’s edge.

Grenade

Like many of the great techniques shown above, the grenade depends on the motion of your arm and wrist. Holding the disc upside down, position your fingers like the scooby grip but firmer.

The Skinny

What you’re looking for in a good grip is the ability for your body to acclimatize to the weight and position of the disc. Practice is important to get you to championships, so don’t forget to try all of these. Some will likely be more comfortable than others, and you’ll soon end up with your own variation or style!

How To Introduce Disc Golf To The #1 Woman In Your Life – Your Mum

How To Introduce Disc Golf To The #1 Woman In Your Life – Your Mum

 

The hero of heroes, the bearer of turmoil and life’s greatest treasures. Of course I’m talking about Mum. Who else? Spending time with your mum playing disc golf may be out of your usual wheelhouse, seem unlikely, or worse yet, boring. But let’s get real. Who’s going to take your triumph home with you and compete with you in disc golf tournaments? We all know who the real all-star is here.

 

Year-Round

 

Whether you’re from the northern or southern hemisphere, there is no off-season in disc golf. Any pro can tell you that. The winter months can seem long with nothing to do, but grab your disc, grab your mum, and head out the door. Disc golf takes you through various terrains, which can get your heart pumping, keeping you active and there are many indoor leagues both you and your mum can take part in.

 

Why not take advantage of the warmer months? Many disc golf courses, believe it or not, have amazing scenery as well as great course designs! While in the winter months you may be staring at your toes and calculating the approximate time for freezer burn, the summer lets you get out in nature and bond with your family! No more fighting over the remote. You’re all in this together.

 

RAD Creations Recreational Activity Design Why Disc Golf

 

Low impact, bonding and so much more

 

You may think you’re the coolest kid on the block and put up your nose at taking your mum to compete, but we’ll tell you now, mums are often the best competitors. Just because she’ll lift cars to save your mangled body doesn’t mean she won’t crush you on the course. So it’s time you invited her to play. None of us spend as much time as we could with our mums. Competing with or against your mum lifts your level of performance and can send both of you to tournaments!

 

She may need a little bit of convincing, so be sure to mention it’s low impact. While mums seem to be made of steel, it’s hard to go all day as a mum. Disc golf gives you the benefit of a hike and use of muscles that you wouldn’t associate with day-to-day matters, but you won’t be out of breath by the end of the game unless that’s what you’re looking for.

 

How about this: most of the time, it’s free! You can spend an entire recreational day for just the price of some discs! Even the discs are cheap! Most places offer products that are under $10.
