Maine’s Disc Golf Courses You Have To Try This Summer
Disc Golf has become huge since hitting the scene in Maine in 1975, according to Activity Maine. The site says,
One of the first ten official disc golf courses in the world was built in Maine shortly after the sport was officially formalized in 1975.
If you are unaware of what this sport is, let me fill you in. I would like to point out first that I am an avid disc golfer and my throw is pretty epic.
Disc golf is played much like golf except, instead of a ball and clubs, players use a flying disc. The sport was formalized in the 1970s and shares with golf the object of completing each hole in the fewest strokes
The point is to get the disc that you are tossing, throwing or tomahawking, into a chain-linked basket. PDGA goes on to say,
.As a player progresses down the fairway, he or she must make each consecutive throw from the spot where the previous throw landed. In group play, the farthest away player always throws first. Players should not get ahead of the away player. The trees, shrubs, and terrain changes located in and around the fairways provide challenging obstacles for the golfer. When the 'putt' lands in the basket, the hole is complete.
