The rules for disc golf are pretty similar to traditional golf, but the sport is generally a bit more low key and less competitive. It's significantly cheaper, too, with most discs costing less than $30. Courses will continue to operate through fall and early winter.
And disc golf is one of many ongoing activities in Milwaukee's Parks. To check out the happenings in your local park, visit the park's official website.
