Disc golf is a sport played on a course–not much unlike golf–but with the objective of throwing a disc into a basket with hanging chains in as few throws as possible. Many municipal parks, universities, and other accessible properties have free courses on which to play. Many popular YouTube channels and websites host disc golf content, and it can occasionally be seen on CBS, ESPN, and other networks. The sport has professional athletes, tournaments, and many other parallels to traditional golf.
