Public Nine Hole Disc Golf Course Opens in Hudson Valley
If you enjoy the challenge of golf but hate using balls and clubs, you're in luck.
A new, nine-hole disc golf course opened up in the Hudson Valley this week to the delight of Frisbee enthusiasts everywhere. The sport of disc golf is pretty much what the name implies. It's similar to golf, in that participants do their best to reach the hole or "goal" in as few tries as possible. But instead of using a golf ball and clubs, the player simply tosses a Frisbee.
The challenge of disc golf is similar to traditional golf but comes with much less of an expense. While clubs, bags and green fees can cost you hundreds of dollars, the disc version will only set you back the cost of a Frisbee.
The popularity of the sport led the City of Kingston to open their own free, disc golf course in Kingston Point Park. The nine basket course is located behind the BMX Track, Softball Field and dog park areas near Rotary Park. Professional disc golf player, Dan Doyle, helped design and build the course. Players are expected to walk about a mile and a half during each match. City organizers believe it will be a great way for residents to get outdoors and have fun while exercising.
