Rate the Date: Disc Golf at Schenley Park
Disc Golf is just what it sounds like - Frisbee meets golf. We first stumbled upon this super fun outing back when I was attending Pitt (although we have no recollection of who first introduced us to this outdoor sport - yes, it's a real sport!). While there are courses all over Pittsburgh, Schenley Park has always been our favorite, mainly because - you can't beat the view.
You get to spend an a few hours of a day hanging out, going on a walk, and throwing frisbees - what's not to love?! Oh - and the best part? It's free!
Did we mention that t's free!
You get to be outside
It's gets you up and moving
There are disc golf courses all around Pittsburgh
Provides friendly competition with your spouse
18 holes can feel very long (often we opt to just play 9)
You walk through wooded areas that can be muddy - so bug bites are a possibility
Good to know:
You need to bring your own discs: Amazon and Dicks Sporting Goods are great places to purchase your discs:
You *can* play with a standard frisbee, but a disc golf disc works much better (and will probably be more fun)
Wear comfortable, athletic shoes - you will be doing a good bit of walking
It can be very muddy if it rained recently - so dress accordingly
There's a girls tee and a guys tee, so girls almost always get to throw their frisbee much closer to the tee than their male counterparts
