Tee Off With Disc Golf At The Top Of The Rockies
Disc Golf, also known as Frisbee Golf, is a simple sport that
almost anyone can enjoy. Disc Golf has taken off in popularity in
the last few years, since it requires relatively inexpensive equipment
and most everyone has experience throwing a Frisbee. Combine that
with fact that most courses are free and have beautiful surroundings,
and you have an inexpensive outdoor sport that can provide hours
of entertainment for the whole family.
Courses can be found just about everywhere these days and generally
consist of 9, 18 or 24 holes. The holes are actually baskets with
hanging chains to slow & secure an incoming disc. On an average
course these holes can be anywhere from 150 to 500 feet apart, and
have water hazards to make things interesting. A bad throw could
result in a lost disc unless you are prepared to do a little swimming.
Discs can cost between $8-$20, so they are easy to replace, and
come in three basic types. The driver is normally a harder disc
that you can rocket off the tee. But be careful, because a misfire
can result in a long walk. The putter is a softer disc made to grab
the chains of the basket from a shorter distance. In between these
two you have your midrange discs that can vary in weight and flight
At Winter Park Resort you can find an 18-hole course that is located
at the top of Winter Park Mountain. At nearly 11,000 feet you have
spectacular views of the surrounding mountains, and can enjoy a
nice lunch on the wraparound deck of the Sunspot. Discs can be rented
at the base of the mountain and you must ride the scenic chair lift
to the top, unless you are up for a little hike.
