A Family Wherever You Go
One of the things that disc golfers appreciate so much about the sport, aside from the fact that it offers great exercise, a chance to spend time in nature, and a way to challenge oneself over and over again, is the group of people that you end up meeting. Disc golfers are very friendly and are equally as excited as you are when they see a new face at the course!
Many people enjoy joining a club that’s in their local area and participate in league nights, volunteer work at courses, and fundraising events. There are seven operating clubs in Queensland alone, and many more across the entire country, so consider stepping outside of your comfort zone and making some new friends.
