The only student disc golf club in Scotland
What is Disc Golf?
Disc golf is a lot like regular (ball) golf. Instead of a ball and clubs, though, players use a flying disc (like a frisbee). Like golf, players aim to complete each hole with the fewest strokes ("throws" in disc golf)
Disc Golf in Glasgow:
There are 4 Disc Golf courses in Glasgow - all completely free to play in public parks - built and maintained by Glasgow Disc Golf Club
We'll be regularly running trips to these courses - and potentially to ones further afield - including Bluebell Woods, east of Edinburgh, and Loch Tay in the highlands
Glasgow Disc Golf Club host several tournaments and leagues, and are a great, active community.
GDGC recently kindly donated to us a full size portable disc golf basket, which we bring out on campus for tasters and putting practice!
How do you play?
A golf disc is thrown from a tee area to a target, which is the "hole." The hole can be one of a number of disc golf targets; the most common is an elevated metal basket. As a player progresses down the fairway, they make each consecutive throw from the spot where the previous throw landed. Finally, the "putt" lands in the basket and the hole is completed.
