Violet Flowers and Disc Golf Intro

Hello and welcome to Weekend Coffee Share #15! I’m glad you’re here. Please come on in, help yourself to a cup of coffee, or tea, or hot chocolate at my coffee station and let’s chat.

Spring Flowers

First, it’s been delightful to see Spring flower blooms around here. I went for a walk in the Toronto Music Garden and took tons of photos. I’m sharing a few in violet colour below.

Here are a few more from my photo archives in alphabetical order.

Next, let me introduce you to how to play disc golf at a beautiful 9-hole disc golf course. If you have never played or heard of disc golf before, read on.

How To Play Disc Golf

  1. Review the map of the golf course posted at the entrance. Note the direction to throw. We’re at a 9-hole course so the numbers go from 1 to 9. At a 18-hole disc golf course, the numbers go from 1 to 18.

  1. Here’s the game objective, how to play, and course courtesy.
Disc golf instructions.
  1. The tee pad is rectangular with soft padding. Next to it is a post that shows the tee number, par number, and the distance from the tee to the corresponding basket. Par is the number of throws a disc golfer is expected to need to complete an individual hole. Par 3 is common.
Disc golf tee.
  1. Start at tee #1. Stand in the tee and throw your disc towards the corresponding basket (hole). The varying distance at each hole and obstacles such as trees or hills make the game fun and challenging.
Disc golf obstacles.
  1. The basket for each tee is also numbered. Once your disc lands in the basket, pick it up, and follow the directional red arrow at the bottom of the basket to go to the next tee.

  1. Continue playing until the last hole. Have fun and remember the course courtesy. The Professional Disc Golf Association (PDGA) Disc Golfers Code is posted at each tee.

About The Discs

  • Below is a sample of 3 discs, each has a name, an image and 4 numbers on it. The yellow disc is the Driver for maximum distance, the white disc is Mid-range for a wide range of distances, and the blue disc is the Putter for short distance and putting into the basket.
Disc golf discs.
  • The discs have fancy names and come in different colours. When you’re new to disc golf, the variety of discs can be overwhelming. Start with an inexpensive set of bright coloured discs (not green or brown). The bright colours make it easy to locate the discs on the course. I also label the back of my discs with a sharpie.
  • The 4 numbers on a disc golf disc are a flight ratings system to indicate how a disc is supposed to fly. For first time players, I’d suggest to have fun playing and not be concerned about these numbers yet.

Why Disc Golf?

  • It’s a fun sport that I can play with others or alone (safer in COVID-19 times).
  • It’s outdoors, usually in a park where I can play any time, weather permitting.
  • It involves mental estimates, body movements, and walking.
  • I like the calm and meditative feels when I play and walk the course.
  • Like any sport, part of the fun is to keep playing to improve.
  • The discs are light and easy to carry. Each of my discs weighs about 150g.
  • The initial cost is minimal. A set of 3 discs costs about US$20.
  • A disc golf bag to carry the discs is nice to have but not required (about US$20).
  • The ongoing cost to play is $0 in Toronto where disc golf courses are in public parks.

A lovely view.

I hope my introduction to how to play disc golf is good. Consult with your doctor before starting any new sport activity. For more information, check out the Professional Disc Golf Association web site and YouTube.

What’s your favourite violet flower? Is my introduction to disc golf helpful? I’d love to hear your comments.

    Good Morning Natalie! I am readying myself for sleep soon but great to join in today as always. I loved those violet colours and the flowers. I understand something about Disc Golf but I call those items frisbees? Nice to know the how to! Happy Weekend. We are off to a picnic on Sunday for a granddaughter’s 9th birthday. Hoping for nice day and no rain! Denyse

      Hi Denyse, Many people call these discs frisbees although there are subtle differences between the frisbee and the disc for disc golf. I use the term as posted at the golf course and by the Professional Disc Golf Association. I hope the weather at your picnic location cooperates and you all have a great time on Sunday. Happy birthday to your granddaughter!

    I have a feeling purple is your favorite color, or one of them (based on your profile photo). 🙂 It certainly is for me.

    I’ve seen many disc golf settings in parks as we’ve traveled throughout Canada and the US. We end up in these parks to walk Maya. But I’ve never played the sport. It does sound fun. I probably won’t be good at it and need way more throws than the par indicates. Just like with mini-golf.

    Yes, your guide and instructions were helpful. One question: if you carry three different discs around to play this game, can you swap them throughout one game based on your distance from the basket? Or do you pick one and use that disc for the entire game?

    • Natalie April 16, 2021 / 6:24 pm

      Liesbet, I like many colours and don’t have a favourite. I chose purple for this post to participate in Terri’s Sunday Stills photo challenge. I’m glad it’s one of your favourite colours 🙂

      If you play disc golf often and stay patient, you’ll become good at it. I always say to first time players to have fun first, the rest will follow.

      To answer your question, yes, after your first throw from the tee pad, you can use a different disc to continue from where your first disc landed. You can bring and play with just one disc or you can bring and play with 3 or more discs. If you bring more than 1, usually, you’d want 1 or 2 for each disc type (driver, mid-range and putter) to give you flexibility.

      With 1 disc, your game is limited to what that disc can do. With more than 1 disc, you can use the disc you think is best suited for the throw, and also in case you lose a disc during a game. Some golf courses have a body of water and your disc may land in it and you can’t get it back. Many players bring 6 or more discs with them. I bring 3 for practical reasons and they meet my needs.

    I just LOVE all the flowers, the blues and purples are gorgeous! My eyes go to the blues, since they are more unusual and so beautiful!! Thank you for sharing the disc golf. I’ve wondered how you play and so it was fun to read how it all goes! Looks like fun and am not sure where around where I live they have disc golf. I will have to look it up soon. I hope you have a wonderful rest of your weekend! ❤

      Diana, I’m glad you like my flower photos. I wasn’t sure if I posted too many of them in one post. There are many disc golf courses in the USA and in CA. If you go to the PDGA dot com web site and do a Course search by your state, it will give you a list. Have a wonderful weekend!

      Thank you, Beth, for your comment. Spring flowers are popping up in my city and they all look so beautiful. Although disc golf is not as well known as golf, it’s becoming more popular. I think it’s wonderful that the USA has many disc golf courses in every state.

    I’m glad you like disc golf. I’d never heard of it.

    My favorite spring flower is Muscari botryoides. It’s more blue than actually violet though.

      Yes, the common name for Muscari botryoides is grape hyacinths. They’re lovely to see in spring here.

        Oh thanks. I looked them up on Wikipedia and apparently overlooked their common name.

      More flower pics coming next week, hehe. There should be a disc golf course in or around Sydney area. If you go to the PDGA dot come web site and do a search for disc golf course by state in Australia, it will show a list.

    Natalie, I’ve been taking pictures of spring blooms as I realize that it might be our last spring bloom experience for a while. Florida has a very different spring. My favorite purples are Hyacinth and Lilac. I’m hoping our lilacs will bloom before we leave!

      Pat, That’s a great idea to take pictures of things that are unique in your current home area. Hyacinths and lilacs are lovely. We usually get hyacinths in April and lilac blooms in May here. The smell of lilacs is intoxicating, especially in the evenings. I hope your packing and house sale are going well.

    I did a bit of this when I was in Canberra for awhile by myself. It’s great, easy exercise and an entertaining way to ‘forest bath’ when you don’t have a forest handy! 😉
