What is Disc Golf?
Disc golf is a outdoor activity in which one player throws discs (like Frisbees) with the goal of landing the disc in a metal target. The target is an elevated basket, with the metal pole raised above the basket and connected with chains. The chains are used to slow down the disc in flight, helping it to land in the basket. Each throw counts and 1 point, and the goal is throw the discs from a starting pad to finish in the basket in the least amount of throws. Each combination of starting pad and basket is called a hole, and a full game, known as a round, will consist of 18 unique holes. Half rounds are also played with 9 holes, and there are also areas for practicing shots.
Why play disc golf?
The sport of disc golf is one of the most cost-efficient ways to enjoy the outdoors and get exercise for any lifestyle or activity level. People who are not physically active right now can use it to get into shape without the monotony of a gym or treadmill. Some of the more difficult courses will have changes in elevation, water, or trees to block the hole, which also provide additional exercise in the form of hiking and cross country conditions. Competitive players will look to lower their score each time out, and compare their results with friends and family to show who is best, and after much practice players can participate in coordinated events – the Rochester area hosts up to 6 large tournaments each year, and there are weekly leagues for both singles and team play. The community of disc golf is a huge group of friendly and helpful players who are always willing to give advice or directions to new players, and regularly meet to form new friendships. You can connect with our group of over 300 players at https://www.facebook.com/groups/DiscGolfMillennium

What do I need to play?
Disc golf players need discs, and we have a huge selection to choose from. If you want a quick grab-and-go stack to start with, we carry 8 different starter sets that will give you one each of the three types – Driver, Mid-Range, and Putter. Or you can pick up the favorites that our yearly Pro Team prefers. Each of our pros has a section that specifically tells you their favorite discs and their preferred carrying bag**. Grabbing one of each disc recommended by our pros will give you a great 7 disc setup that will last you for dozens of rounds.
(**Pro Section of the store coming Summer 2023)
Or if you are still weary of getting into the sport, check out our huge rack of used discs. Starting at $1.99, you can get a handful of discs to try out without the concern over throwing them into the pond or woods and never seeing them again. We also buy used discs for store credit. If you have a box of plastic you are no longer throwing, bring it in and turn it into something new. And if it just so happens that we end up with one of your old discs on the used rack inadvertently, let our friendly staff know and we will return that disc to you, free of charge.
