Disc Golf Courses - Mini Putt Park; 1 Fleming Drive, New Liskeard and Cenotaph Park ( Haileybury)

Similar to golf but instead of a golf ball, discs or Frisbees and baskets are the equipment used.

Disc Golf is a rapid growing year round sport that is played all over the world by all ages. Two courses have been strategically designed and installed at the Mini Putt Park in New Liskeard and Cenotaph Park in Haileybury. There is no cost to play at either course.

The Object of the Game

The object of the game is to throw a golf disc into the target, a steel basket over which chains hang, in the fewest number of throws. The player begins by 'driving' from a designated tee area and continues toward the target. Each consecutive shot must be thrown from the spot where the previous throw has landed. A successful 'putt' sends the disc into the target. The combination of challenges to players, including distance, accuracy, wind, trees, shrubbery, water and terrain changes, offer plenty of action and excitement during the course of a game.

Equipment

Golf discs are different from what are used to play games of catch. However, the game can still be played with a standard Frisbee disc. Today's golf discs are smaller and heavier, manufactured in high-density plastic, and weigh from 140 to 200 grams! Disc Golf discs cost $12 to $25 each - a novice can start with just one but pros may carry 12-15 or even more in their bags. Just like golf there is a disc for every possible situation! There are discs for drives, for approaches, and for putts - each disc has been designed for a specific task! Learning how your discs fly in the wind is the key to successful Disc Golf play. Keep in mind that with golf discs, "It's not the car, it's the driver!"

The Disc Golf Courses were made possible with funding through the Healthy Kids Community Challenge.
