Dics golf courses can be hard to navigate, especially if you aren’t familiar with the flow. Knowing where the next hole is, or even where your current hole’s basket is located can be especially difficult at courses with a thick tree canopy. My advice to assist you with your game is to download a Disc Golfer app such as UDisc and PGDA, . Apps and websites such as these not only have course maps, but you can read and leave reviews on each course profile as well as receive course details such as hole count, park amenities, and course ranking. In addition to these great perks, many of them offer the current course conditions before you plan your visit.
