The Suburbanite    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
In the Portage Lakes, Ohio, there lives a man who eats, sleeps, dreams, talks and plays disc golf. He never stops. The subject rests along the banks by the rivers of his cranium for instant retrievals anytime...24 hours a day, seven days a week, every week of the month and all 12 months of the year. It's perpetual. More

Have you ever gone to a park and wondered what are those baskets with metal chains? They are part of one of the country's fastest growing sport - disc golf. Disc golf is golf with a Frisbee.

In the mid-1980s, Jeff Wiechowski ran into some people playing a form of golf in a Michigan park. Their "ball" was a Frisbee. Intrigued, the native of the Detroit suburbs asked them about it. And by 1988, he was hooked. Twenty-two years later, the 42-year-old Clifton Park, N.Y., man has kept the hobby going, only now in upstate New York. More

Students working on promoting disc golf
Central Florida Future    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Environmental engineering graduate student Mark "Denny" Ritner doesn't spend his Friday afternoons sitting in rush hour traffic or in class. When 4:15 p.m. rolls around, he and a group of fellow students are at the University of Central Florida Arboretum playing disc golf.
