Disc golf, badminton, chess and bowling - four games perfect for a winning family experience. Here's where you can play in Fort Worth.
Have you ever teed off in Fort Worth? Famous courses such as Colonial Country Club and Shady Oaks are favored among avid golfers. Put up your clubs for this game, though. Disc golf is played with a flying disc or Frisbee® and a tailored flick of the wrist. One throw (aka stroke) is counted each time the disc is thrown towards the "hole." As with golf, the goal is to play each round with the fewest throws possible. The player with the lowest total throws for the round wins. Read up on the specifics here.
