The constant challenge, the social nature of the game, the good physical and mental conditioning, and the fact that it is inexpensive to begin play are also attractions. Disc golf is a recreational sports for everyone, regardless of age, gender, or ability.
The objective of the game is to traverse a course from beginning to end in the fewest number of throws of the disc. Each consecutive throw is made from where the disc came to rest after the last throw. Score is determined by counting the number of throws made on each hole plus penalty throws and then summing holes. The winner is the player who completes the course with the lowest score.
The course consists of a series of holes laid out so that when player completes one hole he or she proceeds to the beginning of the next until all the holes have been played. The player is provided with a teeing area from which to begin each hole and a target to complete the hole.
Disc golf courses are normally laid out among wooden areas with diverse terrain to provide natural obstacles to the flight of the disc. These natural obstacles are very much a part of the game and must be altered by the players in any way to decrease the difficulty of a hole. Disc golf courses are normally 18 holes in length, but there are other combinations as well including the 27 hole course that you find in Skien fritidspark.
