    Frolfing = my new obsession

    This sport is so awesomely sweet and I'm sure a bunch of you play it. It seems like it would be a very popular pastime in the 12oz community. For those of you who have been living under a rock for the past couple of years, (below info taken from disclife.com)

    Disc golf is a lot like traditional "ball" golf, except players use specially made plastic flying discs instead of balls and clubs, and throw them for 'par' at an above-ground target instead of a hole in the ground. There are different types of discs used for different purposes, much like ball golfers use different clubs.

    The object of the game is to throw a golf disc into the target, typically a "Pole HoleĀ®" basket (a steel basket over which chains hang), in the fewest number of throws. The player begins by 'driving' from a designated tee area and continues toward the target, throwing each consecutive shot from the spot where the previous throw has landed. Finally, a successful 'putt' sends the disc into the target. The most satisfying sound a disc golfer can hear is the 'ching!' of a disc crashing the chains before dropping into the basket.

    Most disc golf courses consist of 18 or 24 holes, and you'll find some nine-hole courses too. Holes lengths vary, but generally fall between 150 and 500 feet each. Trees, shrubbery, water and terrain changes offer plenty of hazards to avoid, and it becomes very possible to lose a disc in areas with thick growth, tall trees or deep water. Fortunately, discs retail between $7 and $12.

    ^Basket (your objective)^

    ^Putter, Mid-range, and Driver (top to bottom)^

    ^The definition of Disc Golf champion^

    So, who plays? Where do you play? What [disks] do you play with?

    i played for the first time the other day, it was pretty fun despite the fact that i was using someone elses putter the whole time. Chances are i will play a bit this summer since we have a handful of nice courses around here and its pretty laid back and fun to do.

    Golf sucks, and the addition of smelly hippies and frisbees will not help.

    *In fact, it may just be worse.
