Put away those clubs, forget the country club, and join many other Ashevillians in a sport that is cheap (free to play), fun for people from ANY walk of life, and Eco-Friendly. Disc golf has exploded on the scene and our very own Richmond Hill course is considered by some to be one of the nicest courses around.

If you know the rules of traditional golf, then you pretty much know the rules of disc golf. Disc golf shares the same delights and aggravations of traditional golf, whether it's making a perfect drive or hitting a tree or other hazard. Nevertheless, there are a few differences between the two. Disc golf rarely requires a greens fee, you don’t need to wear any special clothing, there is no cart rental, and there is no bad tee time. Moreover, you can be male, female, short, tall, fat, skinny, rich, poor, purple or blue and Disc Golf is still accessible to you.

Instead of a ball and clubs, players use a flying disc that resembles a Frisbee®. Don’t call it Frisbee around your hardcore Disc Golf friends though. They will tell you discs and Frisbees are very different, even though they look similar. Discs are smaller than the traditional Frisbee and have a beveled edge, whereas Frisbees have round flat edges. Discs have the potential to fly much farther than Frisbees and are not designed to be caught.
