The end of summer is approaching and if you are ready to try out a new sport check out disc golf. The Dayton Disc Golf Association has weekly disc golf leagues Sunday – Thursday evenings. Disc golf is similar to regular golf. However, instead of using golf clubs and balls aiming for a hole, disc golf players use golf discs and aim for a disc pole hole, a pole extending up from the gro
und with chains and a basket where the disc lands. The object of the game is to complete each hole in the fewest number of throws, starting from a tee area and finishing at the disc pole hole. Generally, a course is 9 or 18 disc pole holes long. Players start at one and complete the course in order, playing through to the last hole. The player with lowest total cumula
tive score wins. The Dayton Disc Golf Association (DDGA) is a member funded, member organized entity that exists in order to provide disc golf events, education, exploration, and awareness to the residents of Dayton and the surrounding communities. Not only are there weekly disc golf leagues, there is also an annual tournament series called “The Best in Dayton”. For all of you sports enthusiasts, disc golf is an incredible activity that you definitely want to check out!
Two very different and very fun activities to try out this weekend in Dayton! Run in your underwear or favorite super hero costume, and then try your hand at a hybrid sport. Get out and get moving Dayton!
