The unusual sport of Disc Golf

I’m proud to say that I have embarked upon an exhilarating journey in the realm of disc golf. Yes, you read that correctly – disc golf, a sport that combines the finesse of golf with the exhilaration of frisbee throwing.

So why did I venture into the world of disc golf, you might ask? Well, it all began when I caught wind of this captivating sport, something I had seen and heard about predominantly in Europe and America on social media & YouTube. The idea of hurling a disc towards a distant target, navigating the treacherous twists and turns of a carefully designed course, fascinated me. Little did I know that fate had a surprise in store for me.

As luck would have it, I discovered that Liverpool Disc Golf had recently taken root in my local area. Offering weekly taster sessions. The thought of being able to participate in this relatively unconventional sport in my own area filled me with excitement. Without hesitation, I joined their ranks, ready to begin this adventure.

During the first few hours of my disc golf journey, I found myself consumed by the thrill of the game. The crisp sound of the disc soaring through the air, the anticipation as it weaved its way towards the target, and the joy that followed each successful putt when the disc hit the chains – these experiences instantly became an integral part of my life.

Within just six weeks of dedicated practice and my newfound passion, I decided to test my skills in the world of disc golf competition. With a mix of trepidation and enthusiasm, I entered two disc golf tournaments, to pit my abilities against fellow players. Although my skills were not on par with my fellow players I learned a lot and fell in love even more with this unusual sport.

To my astonishment and delight, I found myself standing on the podium in my second event, securing a respectable third-place finish in my division. The sense of accomplishment and fulfilment that washed over me at that moment was indescribable. It was a testament to the progress I had made and the unwavering support of Liverpool Disc Golf and the wider disc golf community.
