Flying with precision

Use your spare time wisely – be active.

It was over 30 years ago when I tried it for the first time. My friends had already tried it and then the day was here. We drove out to Lidingö, an island in the archipelago of Stockholm. I think there was four or five of us and we arrived at Bosön in the afternoon.

I had some idea on how to play this game since I had tried something similar before, which I liked, but this was not as repetitive since the scenery was different each time it was my turn to perform.

At that time this activity was not known to everyone and Stockholm, the capital of Sweden, only had a few courses to choose from. Fast forward thirty+ years and Scandinavia is flooded with opportunities to play disc golf.

It is a game/sport that is really easy to begin with. Just find the closest course and get there. Watch people play and then ask anyone playing if you can join them through the course in order to learn a bit about disc golf.

You will probably be offered to borrow a disc from a player – which you should really try. They will assume you’re a beginner so you don’t have to feel any pressure to perform as good as them. Getting constructive feedback from the other players will get you started in a blink.

A great thing about being a newcomer is that you will experience progress in your game each time you’re playing a round at the course.

Perhaps you’re a <fill in anything that suits you> and want to experience some disc golf from your current location using your current display device in front of you before entering the adventures of a real course – totally agree.
Just open a new tab and search for “disc golf” (or “discgolf” if you speak Swedish).

I can recommend this website if you want to learn more.
