Disc golf is one of the fastest growing sports in the world. One of the main reasons for it’s popularity is that disc golf can be played by players of almost any age and ability. Disc golf is great exercise, you can get a good workout from playing a round or two of disc golf, it’s a couple miles of walking and throwing, and it’s the most fun way there is to exercise
According to Danny Self, a disc golf player who helped design and build the course with volunteers at Clay City Park, players have traveled from all surrounding states, as well as Louisiana, North Carolina, South Carolina, Arkansas, Virginia, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Texas, Colorado and California. It’s even had visitors from Austria.
G ’day, mates! This weekend we will see yet another benchmark not just for disc golf, but more specifically disc golf in Australia. As the sport continues to grow at an astounding pace, we are seeing people in new parts of the world stepping up to offer a quality disc golf experience on a pristine piece of native land. The tournament staff of the 2015 Aussie Open is no exception

Michael Johansen (PDGA #20300 : 1026 Rated) is one of the most well liked disc golfers in the world. The Final Round Radio crew in Charlotte, NC brought him in for a fun and entertaining podcast where the main talking point was “The Mental Game” of the sport. We’ve never seen MJ get flustered or mad on the course and it’s something that we all inspire to become.
It’ll take more than strong winds to blow out a disc-golf tournament in Wichita Sunday afternoon. Organizers of the “Ice Bowl” had more than 100 disc-golfers show up at Camp Hiawatha Sunday morning. Corey Harrison arrived with discs in hand ready to compete. He says disc golfers will play in just about any kind of weather.
The motto is no wimps and no whiners.
If you want to run through the snow and snap your wrist for a good cause, there’s still time to sign up for a Jan. 31 disc golf event in Waterbury Center.
