Disc Golf #195 ~ Beginners Always Welcome ~

**Calgary's NEWEST and longest course opened on October 30th, 2021 featuring 21 baskets with multiple tee offs for varying skill levels. If the course is not busy we will skip holes 6 & 7**

Situated on the old Richmond Green Golf Course, the Currie Reservoir Disc Golf Course has features never before seen at any other course within Calgary. You will have to put your disc golf metal to the test with a multitude of shot shapes, challenging distances, island greens and exciting obstacles that will make or break your score. This course was designed to challenge players of all skill levels offering both long and shorter tee off options for those still learning the game.

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.

Beginners are always welcome but basic throwing skills are helpful in getting the most out of the game. If you participate in sports such as softball or ultimate frisbee, you should pick the game up fairly easily. Games are pretty casual and scorekeeping is optional. The goal here is to simply have fun while enjoying the great outdoors. If you do not have your own discs but want to give it a try we typically have plenty of extras on hand to lend out.
