Disc Golf combines a favorite recreational pastime – frisbee throwing – with one of the world’s great sports – golf. Enjoy 18 holes of disc golf, free shuttle from the rafting center, and a personable instructor. Playing time is approximately 90 minutes.
Program Description: A round of Disc Golf consists of 18 holes. (In Disc Golf, a hole consists of an elevated metal basket into which the Disc must be tossed to successfully complete the hole.) The location of each hole (basket) is described on a course map provided to each of our players. As in “ball-golf,” each hole is rated as a Par 2, Par 3, Par 4 or Par 5.
Players are grouped in pairs or quartets. Beginning at the first Tee, each player tosses his or her Disc in the direction of the first hole. A score card is used to record the results of each hole. The course is clearly marked to direct players from each completed hole to the next Tee. The object of the game is to complete the 18 hole course in the fewest number of throws in the time allocated. A typical round of Disc Golf lasts about 90 minutes. The game may be extended to two hours, or shortened somewhat, if all players so request.
Disc Golf players assemble at the Whitewater Challengers Outdoor Adventure Center. At the beginning of the course, players receive detailed instructions in the rules of play, use of the course map and scoring cards, and Disc throwing techniques. There is an opportunity to practice before beginning the first hole of the course.
What’s Included: Each Disc Golf match includes free shuttles from our Rafting Center to and from the Disc Golf course, a personable instructor, Disc Golf course maps and scoring cards, the Disc itself, and approximately 90 minutes playing time.
Proper Attire: Dress appropriate to the season. Brush, tall grass, low limbs and varied terrain may be encountered. Good footwear (no sandals or flip flops) and long sleeves and long pants are advisable. Insect repellent and a cap or visor are also recommended. In view of the size and wilderness character of portions of the playing area, we cannot guarantee against the presence of poison ivy or other plants to which a player may be allergic, although we believe there to be little poison ivy present. The playing area hosts a range of wildlife although it is not frequently seen.
