They're saying '' It's a new sport '' , one of the fastest growing in the world. Well it has actually been around for a while in some form or another and this is my 5th decade taking part in disc golf.
I am surprised, I am still just as excited as I was in 1975 when I approach a disc golf course and just as satisfied when I leave.
Disc golf makes sense in an ever increasingly rushed and technological world. Disc Golf makes sense in a world that is worried about obesity, low impact activity for seniors, outdoor activity for youth and healthy ways to unwind for Mum, Dad and the family.
Disc Golf should make sense for city councilors and park departments due to the low cost of installation equipment and maintenance. Summer Camps, Schools and the general population will thank you. Everyone has their own reason for enjoying and participating.
Disc Golf make sense when you consider the low environmental impact left by this sport when compared to other traditional sports, is that important , is that a concern ? Disc Golf is easy to learn, it is a sport to some and a pastime for others. Some thrive on the competition, others the social aspects and community involvement , and many others just love the additional excuse to wander outdoors.
A Disc Golf park offers more to the community than any other sporting activity I can think of . That in itself inspires, but in addition , it offers opportunity to those who want to compete on the world stage professionally, those with the goal and the discipline to unleash that undiscovered talent.
Why is there no Disc Golf course near you ? Who's sleeping at the wheel ?
