What is disc golf?

Disc golf or frisbee golf is one of the many sport disciplines that can be played with frisbees – or more officially flying discs.

The game resembles regular golf played with clubs and a ball quite a lot: the goal of the game is to reach and hit a target with the fewest throws of the frisbee possible.
The first throw must be made from a set starting point (tee). Every following throw must be made from where the disc came to stop after a throw until the special target, a basket with chains is hit with the disc.

The winner of the game is the player who managed to hit the target(s) on a course with the fewest throws.

How to play?

To play the game it is recommended to use frisbees and baskets as targets specifically made for the sport. However if no such equipment is available at hand it can be played with any kind of frisbee and any natural or man made object can be designated as target.

Disc golf is played on courses designed specifically for disc golf, however in the absence of such courses it can be played in any bigger park area, meadow or forest area. The trees, shrubs, lamp posts and other objects make the game more exciting and challenging. The various natural elements found in the Szarvas Arboretum for instance make it a perfect location for the sport in this regard.

Visitors of the Arboretum can get to know the basics of the sport near the entrance of the park in a designated exhibition area. Following the tournament itself will be possible alongside the championship level course in the northern section of the Arboretum in designated spectator zones.
