Disc golf tourney draws pros, will benefit local family

Golf is often referred to as a good walk spoiled, and that’s mainly because of the difficulties associated with playing the game well. But there are other drawbacks to the game: the cost, archaic rules, dress codes and exclusivity are only a few.

Modern golf traces its roots back to at least the 15th century in Scotland, but an even more recent descendant of the game is providing a more egalitarian activity that breaks up a long walk into 18 distinct holes.
