THE BENEFITS of PLAYING DISC GOLF
The ongoing fitness boom finds more and more people taking up recreational activities in an effort to improve health and quality of life. Disc golf provides upper and lower body conditioning, aerobic exercise, and promotes a combination of physical and mental abilities that allow very little risk ofphysical injury. Concentration skills increase by mastering shots and negotiating obstacles. Players of limited fitness levels can start slowly and gradually increase their level of play as fitness improves.
Scheduling is also flexible; a round takes one to two hours, and may be played alone, eliminating the difficulty of scheduling tee times. As in traditional golf, disc golfers find themselves "hooked" and, thus, increasing the likelihood of frequent participation. Disc golf offers year-round fitness, even in rain or snow.
Perhaps the greatest attribute of the sport is the expense — or rather, the lack of it. A professional quality disc costs less than $10, and it only takes one for basic play. Of course, there’s the sheer fun of the game — no matter what your age or skill level! Play disc golf — the sport of the future!
