Ching !

Disc Golf, one of the most entertaining, family oriented, cost effective games in the whole world. One of the great games to enjoy in any and every type of weather situation you can handle! Playing Disc Golf in the wind would be the hardest weather attribute to cause the disc to spin out of control.

The Rain seems to push down on the disc and puts more force on you to throw straight. Snow is bad to play in considering a disc could be easily lost when burrowed into high inches of it. Most Disc golf baskets are made fro chains, but some have been made from wood like bamboo or strictly just pole placements that are even tough for pros.

How The Pros Do It

Very intense when played professionally Disc Golfers show much etiquette when it comes to rules of the game.When played casually, or even paired up creates different challenges and situations for both team members or individually.

Pros know how to show and give newcomers to the game much attention and info on course set up, rules of play, proper throws on select holes.Some courses even have special placements for new holes and pin placement maps on each hole to show location and distance.and even understanding how to throw and why or using a certain technique for any type of obstacle.

The Gear

Being able to accessorize your equipment, get all the gear, and maximize performance of play is essential to being a pro.

Disc shoes like golf shoes have teeth for steady ground control and stability. Disc golf mini markers are a great thing to have when you fist start up being able to mark your disc and grab the one you threw in case you need to use it again.
