In one way, it is not necessarily about disc golf. Do you know how hard it is to get a 46 year old, 14 year old, 13 (almost) year old, and 10 year old to agree on anything other than pizza? Silly question, I'm sure you do. Not only that, but outdoor time has been harder to come by. The extreme heat and drought has affected us. Note the lack of green grass in the photo. You could say that finding common interests is like finding water (you would say gold, but water is more valuable right now). These opportunities cannot get away!
On the other hand, it is about disc golf. Disc golf is fun! I learned about it in college thanks to some friends taught me how to use the campus as a course. "Holes" included this tree, that lamp post, underneath that bench, but only from this direction... - Disc golf is also a teaching opportunity: strategy, friendly competition (with yourself as well as others), conversation, the thrill of victory, the agony of defeat, a good walk (spoiled), and more. Disc golf, unlike regular golf, is free (after buying special discs, which generally range from 10 to 15 dollars each).

to 15 dollars each. Amazon.com has them!
