Two New Ways To Enjoy Golfing!
Disc Golf and Foot Golf Are Incredibly Fun to Play
What is Disc Golf?
Disc golf is played much like traditional golf. Instead of a ball and clubs, however, players use a flying disc, or Frisbee®. The sport was formalized in the 1970’s, and shares with “ball golf” the object of completing each hole in the fewest strokes (or, in the case of disc golf, fewest throws). A golf disc is thrown from a tee area to a target which is the “hole”.
As a player progresses down the fairway, he or she must make each consecutive throw from the spot where the previous throw has landed. The trees, shrubs, and terrain changes located in and around the fairways provide challenging obstacles for the golfer. Finally, the “putt” lands in the basket and the hole is completed. Disc golf shares the same joys and frustrations of traditional golf, whether it’s sinking a long putt or hitting a tree halfway down the fairway. It is designed to be enjoyed by people of all ages, male and female.
What is Foot Golf?
An emerging game that mixes soccer with golf, FootGolf has made its way to Canada, after gaining popularity in Europe where the Inaugural World Cup was held in 2012, and in the U.S. The game is basically played the same way as golf, only with a soccer ball, shorter hole lengths, and of course a much bigger cup.
FootGolf is a lot of fun for the whole family. It is a great activity for team building, fundraising, team and corporate parties as well as birthday celebrations. Whisky Run is a proud member of the Canadian FootGolf Association.
