Editors' note: Our young kids love to go on frisbee golf / disc golf outings with us.  (Before we had kids we loved to play frisbee golf and enjoyed finding  courses wherever we travelled in the country.  Now when we take our children for an afternoon of frisbee golf, we play a very modified game geared for the kids.)  If you have never tried Disc Golf, it is really worth buying a few frisbee golf discs (available at most sports stores) and checking out some of the local frisbee golf courses.  It's a really nice outing, usually in beautiful, woodsy settings, and you can get exercise and have fun as well as time to just talk with your frisbee golf companions.

In case you aren't familiar with disc golf, here is a quick description of the game:  You basically walk through a wooded, forest disc golf course, which has holes (target baskets) at intervals along the cleared pathways, and starting points for each hole/basket goal.  From the starting point, each player takes turns making their first throw.  Then you pick up your disc and throw from the spot where it landed (each player throws in turn), until you succeed in throwing the disc into the basket.  Players tally how many throws it takes to land their frisbee/discs in the disc golf "hole" (a sort of chain link basket on a pole that catches the frisbee when you hit the target.)  Most disc golf courses have either 9 holes (goal baskets) or 18 holes. 

We have found that our young children very much enjoy the camraderie of a family walk through the woods as they hone their disc throwing skills.  It is always exciting when they land their disc in the baskets!

These soft, hand-made crocheted flying discs made by a local North Carolina family-owned company are GREAT for indoor playroom play, and they make it much easier for little children to be able to catch and throw a frisbee than with the typical hard plastic flying discs.  Available at
