Disc golf is one of the most popular activities in Snake River Canyons Park. At first glance, it seems like regular old-fashioned golf played with discs instead of clubs; but there are many differences between these two sports that make them unique and interesting to play! Unlike a normal round where you have 18 holes on your course waiting for completion before moving onto another hole nearby or at some other location nearby (a “round”), disc golfer can stop anywhere along their journey whenever they want - usually after throwing just one more shot into another metal basket somewhere else.
Disc golf is a fun and competitive sport that has been growing in popularity for over four decades. It was initially invented in the 1970s as an alternative to traditional golf, but has since become its own game with a dedicated fan base. The game is played with specialized discs that are thrown at various targets, similar to traditional golf, with the goal of completing each hole in the fewest throws possible.
The history of disc golf can be traced back to 1975 when the first course was created in Oak Grove, MN by “Steady” Ed Headrick, who is considered the Father of Disc Golf. Since then, courses have popped up all over the world and the sport has gained immense popularity due to its accessibility and low cost. Professional competition events have taken off as well, with tournaments being held around the globe featuring some of the best disc golf players in the world. With its simple yet challenging appeal, disc golf is sure to remain popular for many years to come!
