Sometimes playing the same game over and over again can get boring (allegedly). I mean, in my opinion, playing 18 holes is the best thing in the world. If I only had 24 hours left on this Earth, I’d get a couple quick rounds in for sure; but some people need a little bit more variety in their life. As someone who spent 10 years working at a summer camp, I recognize the importance of varying games up a little bit from time to time.
There’s more than one way to play 18 holes of disc golf, so this week I’m going to look at a few different ways that I’ve found to spice up your disc golf game. Some you can do on the course, others you can do from your kitchen table. I’ve played a few of them and they’re all worth looking at.
I think it’s important to include video games because it’s a growing industry that could expose lots of different people to disc golf. There’s millions of people who live in cities that don’t have immediate access courses. If they play the game and decide to get out and try it someday, that could be huge for the growth for the sport. Also I like to play video games, and we can be entertained in the off season watching Simon play VR against McBeth. We’ve already seen Simon play Disc Golf Valley against Eagle McMahon.
So these are some of the other ways I’ve found you can play this sport that unites us all. Let me know if you’ve tried any of these, or please let me know if you have a fun game I’m missing! I’m always down to try out new things on the course.
May your discs miss all the trees,

I’m a sports management student at USM and for the most part I don’t like pay-to-play sports. I’d argue that they’re detrimental to the growth of the sport, target rich people, and ruin the fun nature of sports.
But disc golf is different.
