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.
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!
