Playing Frisbee and Disc Golf in College
Disc Golf is Everwhere on a College Campus
What do a statue of a university founder, a liberal arts building and an on-campus coffee shop have in common? They can all be disc golf targets.
That’s right, practically every college campus can and should be used as a disc golf course. It’s done at St. Mary’s University, where students get to throw over streams and historic graveyards. And it’s done at the University of Oregon, where students shoot through skinny, sprawling oak trees.
At many schools a student could literally play their way from class to class, meeting friends and professors and breaking scores along the way.
