Learn the history of disc golf, where this sport originated from and how it became such a popular outdoor recreational sport in this free video series.
I'm going to go over a little bit about the names of disc golf and the history of the game. Disc golf started in 1972 in Los Angeles, California. Since that time it spread all the way across the world actually. You can find courses in Minnesota, in pretty much any state that you're in. If you're interested in disc golf, go to pdga.com and look up a couple courses, and I'm sure there's one at least within 20 minutes of your house. You'd be incredibly surprised, and actually we're here today at Hahamongna Park in Los Angeles, California. This was actually the very first permanent pin disc golf course in the world, so it's really great to be here today. It's a beautiful day in the park. A lot of people call disco golf frolf. Some people call it Frisbee golf. If you want to stay current with the times, if you want to stay cool, I would call it disc golf because as you can see, it's not a Frisbee. It's a lot smaller, it's hard, and it's a disc.
