Flying Discs are not UFOs

Schenley Park is home to one of Pittsburgh’s disc golf courses.  Check out this popular sport, which is like golf but with frisbees, with Venture Outdoors this weekend.

Intro to Disc Golf
Don’t call it “Frisbee Golf,” and for the love of all that’s good, don’t ever call it “Frolf!” Disk Golf is one of the most rapidly growing sports in the world! Join us for a great day of fun that virtually anyone can enjoy! The activity will be structured to familiarize people with the three main types of golf discs, understand the flight patterns of the various discs within those three categories, and effective methods for gripping and releasing the disc to maximize distance and minimize your score. Sponsored by our friends at the Pittsburgh Flying Disc Society.

Saturday March 29, 1-4pm
Schenley Park
$8.00 member/$15.00 non-member
