Levelland City Park now has an 18-hole disc golf course. Disc Golf is played much like traditional golf. The difference is instead of balls and clubs, players use a flying disc (similar to Frisbee). The object of the game is to complete each hole in the fewest number of throws. The discs are thrown from a tee area to a target, which is called the hole. The hole is an elevated metal basket.
Disc Golf can be played from school age to old age. Much like traditional golf, this sport can be enjoyed alone, with a group of friends, or with the whole family. Disc Golf provides both physical and mental activities with little risk of physical injury. It provides upper and lower body conditioning and aerobic exercise. Concentration skills increase by mastering shots and negotiating obstacles.
