There will be live demos by Chris himself, and an opportunity to play! All ages and skill levels are welcome.  The clinic is free of charge and a limited number of discs will be provided to participants for use at the clinic only.  The clinic will start at the pavilion and then move to the course.

What is disc golf?

Disc golf, also known as frisbee golf, is a flying disc game, as well as a precision and accuracy sport, in which individual players throw a flying disc at a target. The object of the game is to traverse a course from beginning to end in the fewest number of throws of the disc. The game is played in about 40 countries around the world.
