About Disc Golf

Disc Golf is a sport or a game which is based on regular golf. But instead of balls, clubs and holes, disc golfers use special disc golf discs (frisbees) and disc golf targets. The goal is very similar – to get the disc from the tee to the target in the least amount of throws. Whoever has the lowest score after playing the whole course (9 to 18 holes) wins. Currently there are 106 permanent disc golf coruses in the Czech Republic and more are being built. There were more than 150 tournaments in the Czech Republic and there are more and more members of the Czech Disc Golf Association.

Discgolf je hra s létajícím talířem, která vychází z pravidel klasického golfu, jen místo holí a míčku se hraje s diskem a místo jamek jsou na hřišti umístěny speciální discgolfové koše. Cílem hry je dopravit disk neboli létající talíř z místa výhoziště do koše na co nejmenší počet hodů. Kdo obejde celé hřiště s nejnižším počtem hodů se stává vítězem. Discgolfové hřiště má obvykle 9 nebo 18 jamek. V České republice je v současné době 106 pevných discgolfových hřišť a další se staví. V rámci České discgolfové ligy se loni uskutečnilo více než 150 turnajů a výrazně stoupá i počet členů České discgolfové asociace.

*Volunteers recruitment will happen in Spring 2020. Follow this web and you will not miss it.

Czech Disc Golf Scene

In late 2010 we discovered disc golf. And we fell in love. We made it our goal to make it the next Czech national sport. We kept in our minds ever since, building over 60 disc golf courses, organizing dozens of tournaments and teaching thousands of disc golfers. European Disc Golf Championship was the obvious next step and we are very glad we got the chance.
