You can use any type of Frisbee for Disc Golf, however throwing specific golf discs allows you to throw further and more accurately. Disc Golf is a whole lot more fun with the right type of disc.
There are 3 different categories of discs
|Putter||Easy to Control, straight flight .|
|Mid Range||Best all round disc to start with|
|Driver||Most distance but harder to control. More curve in its flight.|
There is also different plastic, this impacts how durable a disc is. It is also the major difference in the price of a disc.
|Base||Cheapest and easiest to throw, wears the quickest of the plastics.||$13-$15|
|Medium||Easy to throw, and holds its shape for longer.||$15-$18|
|Premium||Harder to throw, but much more durable. Also comes in wider variety of colours.||$20-$25|
We recommend just one disc to start with and can help choose the right disc for you.
