Itinerary:

Disc Golf is played much like regular golf, but instead of trying to hit a ball into a hole, players attempt to get discs into a basket in the least amount of throws. Similar to clubs in ball golf, there are different discs for each shot. There are hundreds of discs available on the market which generally fall into three categories: drivers; midranges and putters. It is recommended that you have one of each to start although one could get away with just a midrange (such as a 'Buzz') in the beginning. Frisbees are usually not suitable as they do not fly far enough but they'll suffice if you just want to give the game a try.

Baker Park is a great 18 hole course in a beautiful maintained park. Par is 56 over the full course. Holes vary in length from around 200ft to a little over 500ft. It is challenging but not too overwhelming as a course.

Beginners are welcome but basic throwing skills are helpful in getting the most out of the game. If you participate in sports such as softball or ltimate frisbee, you should pick the game fairly easily. Games are pretty casual and scorekeeping is optional. The goal here is to simply have fun while enjoying the great outdoors. Everyone should bring their own discs but if you're a first timer who just wants to give it a try before investing in any equipment, we usually have a few extra discs on hand to lend out.
