Disc golf can be a winning sport, combining all of the fun of disc toss with the scoring and strategy of golf. Load up the disc bag and keep these tips in mind on the next trip out to the course.

Stretch it Out

Disc golf is a real sport, even if it does not involve all of the running of baseball, the contact action of football, or the vicious physical involvement of soccer. It can still be very taxing, physically speaking, for those who do not stretch out before each game. Always be sure to get a good stretch in beforehand to avoid injury and soreness later on.

Pack the Disc Bag up with Plenty of Bottled Water

A few bottles of water in the disc bag is not a bad idea. It's easy to get dehydrated when walking the course and the physical activity of tossing will only make players thirstier. Stay hydrated, especially during times of physical stress.

Use Brightly Colored Discs

It's easy to lose them in trees and on the field. Make sure that they're brightly colored so that they're easier to spot. It's best if the color is the opposite of the general color of the course. For instance, use red on a course with a lot of trees and grass, but green when playing on sandy terrain. Generally speaking, the color should clash with the most common color found on the course.

Wear Comfortable Shoes

Some people like to play in flip-flops. That's great on the beach. When playing in a park with a lot of trees and bushes or brush, it's a good idea to wear some closed-toe shoes so as to make it easier to walk through the cracks and tall grass to retrieve a lost game piece. That's going to happen occasionally, as the slightest breeze can knock the most perfect throw off course and into the greenery.

Pack a Light Lunch

Pack a lunch and make sure it's light. It's easy to take a break and go get some fast-food, but that weighs players down and makes it hard to want to continue the game. Packing a light tuna sandwich or a salad is a good way to keep from getting hungry out on the course without having to weigh oneself down with a heavy stomach and extra calories that will take all day to properly digest.

Frolf is fun, but take the proper precautions and remember that it is a real sport. Prepare for an outing with proper attire, food, water and equipment.
