What Is Disc Golf?

Disc golf (aka Frisbee Golf) is a recreational and professional sport where the player throws discs/Frisbees to traverse a specialized course in the fewest number of throws.  The rules are similar to ball and miniature golf where there is a tee to start from and a goal to reach.  There may be obstacles in the way, water hazards and out of bounds areas to add challenge. Goals are typically in the form of chain baskets or light poles, depending on the course.

 

There are many different kinds of discs spanning various flight paths, speeds and weight for the intermediate and advanced player, but the beginner disc golfer only needs a common household Frisbee to play.  The low entree cost to this sport (cost of a Frisbee or disc) and the (mostly) free courses to play on, like Irvine's disc golf courses, make disc golf a wonderful family sport that all age ranges can enjoy together.

 

Disc golf is also played at the professional level, providing ever-increasing challenges for those who seek it.

About the Irvine Disc Golf Club

Thank you for visiting the Irvine Disc Golf Club web site.  Through this web site we hope to accomplish the following:

  • Provide a central location for local disc golf news and tournaments
  • Provide course maps for your convenience
  • Provide information, as we get it, on our effort to have a tournament level course at the Great Park

 

When the site was first created, a large number of the disc golf community in Irvine banded together to help accomplish the following:

  • To stop the closure of the Deerfield Park and University Park disc golf courses
  • Communication of the state of disc golf courses in Irvine (current and future)
  • To provide the city of Irvine with metrics on the usage of the disc golf courses available (local players and players who travel out of city to play)
  • To provide a moderated forum for players and non-players to discuss disc golf
  • Develop a formal disc golf club organization and elicit membership

Site registration and forums are no longer available due to inactivity.

Club membership was never opened as we lacked a leader to coordinate the creation of the official club.
