Disc Golf is a sport developed in the US in the 1970's. It is played along the rules of traditional golf but using high speed flying discs (somewhat similar to Frisbees) instead of a club and golf balls, and the final target is not a hole in the ground, but an elevated metal basket with chains. Every throw from the starting tee pad is counted until the disc is thrown into the basket, and that then becomes the score for that hole. The course design often involves manipulating the disc's flight to go around, under or over objects such as trees, dams and other obstacles.
A course typically consists of 9 or 18 'holes', and these are often located in public parks or privately-held green spaces. The terminology used comes from traditional ball golf - each hole has a 'par' score, you start the hole from a teepad etc.
