    Is a flying disc game, played with a flying disc and two cans in which you deflect the disc.The object of the game is to score points by throwing and deflecting the flying disc and hitting or entering the goal. The game ends when a team scores exactly 21 points or "chogs" the disc for an instant win. Players must get exactly 21. If a throw takes a team's score over 21 points, the points for that throw are subtracted from their score instead of being added. In the event of a tie (both teams have 21 points at the end of a round), additional rounds are played until one team has more points than the other at the end of a round.

    Clubs, golf balls, and scorecards are available. Try out the game of golf on our chip and putt course or keep yourself from getting rusty and practice your short game.
