Our first go of disc golf

Yesterday we stumbled on a disc golf course that has been set up behind the tennis courts in Stonepay. We started chatting to the guy who had set it up and he sold us 4 of his old discs so that we could have a go.

And as today is a public holiday – Flag Day – and the sun was shinning it was the perfect time to give it a try.

The game is pretty much as it is named, you play golf but with flying discs (a bit heavier and smaller than frisbees) there are marked tees to start in and you have to throw the disc to hit the baskets. It took us about half an hour to go all the way round with quite a few trees hit and discs flying widely off-course – but that all adds to the fun.

(p.s. the boys were wearing their bikes helmets from cycling to the course not as protection from flying discs!)
