Fore! Frolf anyone?
October 5, 2005
Unusual use of Renkoo #487: planning the weekly Disc Golf game. Or Frolf, as it was once called on Seinfeld.
Torrey and Paul started using Renkoo recently to plan their Saturday disc golf game. They invited me along to give it a try.
Disc golf provides a surprisingly good workout, with a nice mix of rough terrain hiking, and throwing of slightly weighted discs. It is nothing like my experience as a discus or hammer thrower, and nothing like ultimate frisbee. It’s sort of like golf, except you purposely throw your club/disc, there are no grassy fairways or golf carts, and the 9 hole course at Coyote Hellyer Park in San Jose is free (racoons, lizards, and poison oak included). It is generally usually played in groups of 2-4 people per hole.
The day would not have been complete with the promised stop at In-N-Out Burger, which really hit the spot after 18 holes.
