Melky knows Disc Golf! Have you heard of it, seen it, or maybe you have played it? Do you know what it means to “bring the chains”?
It all started with Ed Headrick (1924-2002), inventor of the modern Frisbee and founder of the Disc Golf Association (1976). Disc golf is similar to regular golf; however, instead of using golf clubs and balls aiming for a hole, Disc Golf players used golf discs and aim for a Disc Pole Hole, a pole extending up from the ground with chains and a basket where the disc lands. The object of the game is to complete 9 or 18 “holes” in the fewest number of throws. The player with the lowest total cumulative score wins.
Modesto is home to a 27-hole Disc Golf Course at East La Loma Park, with 2 entrances: Scenic Oaks off Scenic, La Loma Park off Edgebrook Drive.
Look for Melky! Or shall we say look for the squirrels and you’ll find Melky?!
