WKND#004 WITH BRETT BURCH ABOUT DISC GOLF MINNESOTA

January 24, 2019

LAKE LIFE WKND 004 Due to severe weather conditions we are taking one more week of a winter break...but in anticipation of spring we thought we are re-running our recording with Brett Burch about Disc Golf. Brett relocated from Colorado to Minnesota last year and is a passionate disc golf player. He opened a small disc golf shop in Ottertail selling equipment, giving classes and hoping to help grow the sport locally. Hear the full story and learn more about the fastest growing sport in the US today. Find out how and more lake life on our daily updated event schedule at www.lakelifewknd.com

Disc Golf is a flying disc sport in which players throw a disc at a target; it is played using rules similar to golf. It is often played on a course of 9 or 18 holes. Players complete a hole by throwing a disc from a tee area toward a target, throwing again from the landing position of the disc until the target is reached. Usually, the number of throws a player uses to reach each target are tallied (often in relation to par), and players seek to complete each hole, and the course, in the lowest number of total throws.
