Disc Golf is played like traditional "ball" golf, but with flying discs instead of balls and clubs. One point (stroke) is counted each time the disc is thrown and when a penalty is incurred. The objective is to play each hole in the fewest strokes possible. The player with the lowest total strokes for the entire course wins.
