Disc Golf – 39 Courses to Play Frisbee Golf in BC

Formalized in the 1970s, disc golf is much like regular golf, but instead of balls and clubs players use a Frisbee. As you may guess, the object is to complete the hole with the fewest throws between the tee area and the hole. As you progress down the fairway, players make their next throw from where their previous throw landed.
