DISC GOLF

By Logan Reboja

Disc golf is a perfect way to spend your day in the park. There’s nothing like a casual stroll through the park while tossing discs with some friends. The holes are set up throughout the park so you also get a nice tour of what El Dorado has to offer. This sport is suited for all ages, all you have to know is how to throw a frisbee. Getting started is super simple, all you have to do is pick up some discs and start your game!


If you do not have your own equipment, you can rent from the Tennis Shack for just a few dollars. Otherwise, they have a large selection of discs to choose from if you’re looking to pick up a new hobby.
