Frisbee golf is played like the traditional game of golf except that instead of using a ball and clubs a Frisbee takes the place of the ball and it is thrown by players. Players through the Frisbee as close as they can to a basket which takes the place of the hole in golf. The winner of a round is the player who takes the least number of throws to get the Frisbee in the basket.
Some players use different types of Frisbee discs for different throws – the same way a player in golf uses different clubs depending on the shot that they want to make. Different discs can achieve longer or shorter distances, can curve left or right and some are even rolled along the ground. The game has become quite popular in the US and it is estimated that over half a million people play regularly.
