Summer Fun: Disc Golf

Have you enjoyed your summer? Looking for some new fun?

Try Disc Golf!

This game is just like golf, except you use frisbee-like discs and shoot toward these “holes”. Simple, metal baskets with chains to slow and “catch” your disc, this game is easily played by families of most ages.

Walking in the summer sun across a huge field is a great way to spend time together as a family, as well as get a little exercise, and learn new skills. My husband and I have played separately in the past, but introduced our boys to this fun game this weekend – and what fun!

The course we chose to start on is in a public park: a big field with mowed *fairlanes* and rough surrounding them. This is set with large evergreens {it is the Evergreen State here in Washington!} surrounding much of the course which provides the perfect backdrop for outdoor fun.

Summer is a great time to try something new. Whether you homeschool like our family, private school, or go to public school — more family time is almost a sure thing. While you’re together as a family, it’s a great time to orient yourself, and your children, to new experiences and activities. Learning together, playing together, having fun together — it’s what makes our family go!

We picked up our discs at Play It Again Sports –

although they had used discs, we found the new discs new discs to enticing not to purchase! It was a great time to unload a bike my boys had outgrown – so while we were there, might as well pick up golf discs.

 

We also picked up scooters, but that’s another story!

We chose to play for fun – not keep score with number of *strokes* and played through the rough. We’re not super competitive, so this style of play allows for learning, enjoyment, and gaining experience with this new-to-our-family pastime.

What are you learning this summer?

BTW: I’m working on getting my watermark on my photos again. It’s a great time to ask again if anyone has experience using non-Apple apps for theirs. Thanks!
