WinterKids has an app that “creates opportunities for children to be active, vibrant, and healthy in the outdoors.” At Sabattus Disc Golf our motto is Family, Fun, Fitness and we’re proud to work with a non-profit whose values so closely resemble our own.
Through the WinterKids app, Sabattus Disc Golf is offering a free round for up to 5 members of the family on our 9 hole Owl Course and disc golf disc rentals as well, if folks don’t have discs already.
The WinterKids app costs $35 and provides you with offers for many outdoor activities in the region from November 1st, 2019 through October 31, 2020. With tons of deals, it really offers a variety of activities all over the state of Maine and New Hampshire. Just go to WinterKids.org to see all of the amazing offers. You can browse the offers on the app before you register and pay the one time fee.
If you’re new to disc golf, and more specifically winter disc golf, here are some tips to help make your visit more enjoyable. W're also happy to answer any questions you may have about disc golf, we always love growing the sport.
Make sure you have gloves. Your hands will definitely get cold just walking around. You’ll only have to take them off for a few moments to throw.
Wear warm winter footwear with decent traction. Our concrete teepads are covered with treated rubber mats that we keep shoveled off. The paths between baskets can be snow packed, wet, and possibly icy in spots.
Bring a towel to wipe the snow from your discs. Snow may stick and will affect the flight of the disc.
If your disc goes into the snow look for a slit in the snow where you think it landed. Discs often stand upright in the snow but just under the surface
We’re only a short week away from the start of the 2021 Disc Golf Pro Tour Season at the Las Vegas Challenge! There will be one constant thing however. People arguing over which is better, Post Produced or Live Coverage. (Audible groan emoji.) What’s the big deal; why do people fight about this so much?
I think there are 4 major reasons that people have an opinion about which is more desirable. Both sides have merits about which is “better”.
I like the 4 number flight rating system. It tells me the things I need to know about the disc before purchasing it. Now I know that every disc flies differently for every person, but I appreciate that companies give you a general idea of what a disc is going to do.
You may have been asked for lessons from a friend, it’s not uncommon. If you’re looking to give a disc golf lesson then I have some ideas and tips for you that I think will make your lesson go smoothly. I wrote this blog on introducing someone to disc golf last year, if the person you’re going to give a lesson to is brand new head on over there for some tips. If they have played a few rounds or for even a couple years and want a lesson then keep on reading.
