The community of disc golfers include every age and skill level. It is fun to learn. Most golfers are glad to give you pointers on your drive or putt. So if you’re out at Jolly’s Ranch Disc Golf course and you hear “FOUR” look up to stay safe from flying discs.
The course is notably a treasure. The game is easy to learn and much like its counterpart, ball golf, difficult if not impossible to master.
