Nestled in the oak-studded grassland east of Hellyer County Park lies a unique sport, Disc Golf. You think disc golf -what is it? Well, disc golf is played much like traditional golf. Instead of a ball and clubs, players use a flying disc or Frisbee. Like traditional golf, the object of the game is to complete a hole in the fewest number of throws. The player starts out by throwing from a tee location toward the hole, then again (and again, and again). Trees, shrubs and natural terrain variations provide challenges and frustrations common to traditional golf.

We're being hosted by Silicon Valley Disk Golf Club.  For info:
