Play Frisbee Golf

Home > London > Sport
Published March 7th 2011

Disc golf, Frisbee golf or frolf is a game in which competitors attempt to throw a Frisbee into a metal basket. The aim of the game is to get the disc in the basket in the least amount of throws. Disc golf can be played individually or in teams.

Frisbee golf is said to have originated in California in the 1950's, when a summer camp counsellor decided to combine elements of golf and Frisbee toss to create a fun new game for the children. Since then, the game has become popular in the United States of America, Australia, New Zealand, Japan and Western Europe.

To begin a game of disc golf, all players must throw their Frisbees from the designated tee area. The throwing order is then determined by whose Frisbee is furthest from the hole.

If your disc falls in an out of bounds area, you must take your next shot from where it landed. If you cannot take your shot from that location, you will take your shot from the inbound spot where it went out of bounds and will receive a one throw penalty. For more information on the rules of frolf, see the Disc Golf Association website.
