Disc Golf is a flying disc sport in which players throw a disc at a target; it is played using rules similar to regular golf. It is often played on a course of 9 or 18 holes. Players complete a hole by throwing a disc from a tee area toward a target, throwing again from the landing position of the disc until the target is reached. Usually, the number of throws a player uses to reach each target are tallied (often in relation to par), and players seek to complete each hole, and the course, in the lowest number of total throws possible.
The game is played in about 40 countries and, as of 2018, there are over 115,000 active members of the PDGA worldwide.
Last summer, I wanted to host a Disc Golf event in Winnipeg, but before I knew it, all my available weekends were booked up!
I was awarded this community celebration event and was excited to do something different, and a little ways away from Winnipeg after hearing that others in the community had been awarded them as well. Upon searching which communities had Disc Golf courses, it was discovered that Portage La Prarie had one, and so that settled that, off to Portage La Prarie I go!
I myself have never played disc golf, but it should be a hilarious afternoon of figuring it out together!
The course is free of charge and stride place has discs to use.
There are 35 discs available and they are a $5 deposit each. If you have a disc, please bring one.
More details to follow if available.
