Disc Golf - like the name suggests is like Golf but with a disc. Also known as Frisbee Golf or if you're in Canada, Frolf!! Take a stroll in the leafy surrounds of Harcourt Park for a couple of hours with a Disc Golf 'pro' who is kindly donating his time and sports equipment to give us a chance to try out this fun sport.
We'll hit the purpose built (currently only one of it's kind in the Wellington region) course in group of around 6 people. We'll have expert tuition on hand all the way along the course.
If there is enough interest we'll arrange for more experts to show us how it's done. So by all means join the waitlist!
This is a fun and addictive sport.
Cost: Koha/small donation ($1-$5) Sky and Friends are kindly offering their time, expertise and use of discs. The koha is to cover wear and tear on the discs. As it's pretty certain we'll be hitting trees! Bring this in cash on the day.
Difficulty: 1/5 (reasonable level of fitness required, for more info see FAQ)
Duration: 2-3 hrs of walking with LOTS of stopping - think actual Golf.
Bring: water, sun protection and koha (that's a small donation) to cover equipment wear & tear, a small towel to wipe wet disc is handy. Bring some lunch if you'd like to have a picnic lunch before heading home.
