• Disc Golf is friendly to varied levels of play. Beginners and experienced players can enjoy the game equally.
• Disc Golf is Family Friendly – when I played ball-golf, spending ball-golf levels of time and money to bring my kids, kids friends, SO out for something they wouldn’t enjoy anyway was out of the question.
Personally I have one main reason to explain why disc is better than ball golf. It's cool and all to watch a really good golf ball shot, but when you get that perfect snap and release with a disc it's over. Watching that disc take flight perfectly down the fairway is like no other.
Rude's Top Ten List: 1. Cheaper, no way I could afford a ball golf addiction 2. More social, I am the goodwill ambassador at my home course, I'll play with anyone and I meet new people all the time. Ball golfers usually don't take on newcomers. 3. Safety meetings 4. I like the disc golf lingo, I feel like its a new, evolving dialect 5. A lot of cute women out there 6. Bag tag rounds 7. Better exercise, no motorized carts, usually. I've lost 30 lbs. bicycling the 20 mile round trip and playing since late winter 8. I can practice at the park next to my pad, sweet! 9. Good club with plenty of old timers and big arms to mentor the newer players 10. We are hosting the 2010 Pro Worlds. Come on out to disc golf heaven in Indiana! It's hard to get a major in your backyard in ball golf.
How is it "better exercise"???? If a disc course is 6000' you'll walk about 1 1/2-2 miles...depending on basket to tee distances. Walk and carry your clubs on a 7000 yard course and you'll walk about 5 miles.
