Disc golf is a very inexpensive sport that allows helps just get you off the couch and outside walking. There are three 18 hole courses in the Greenville area that are pretty top notch. Pick up two or three used discs (short medium and long range) from Play It Again sports or Craigslist and you’re ready to go. You don’t have to be good to get some exercise and enjoy the outdoors. In fact, I recommend playing BOTH left and right handed to make it interesting and keep yourself balanced. If you want to kick it up a notch you can play some “speed holes” and race to see who finishes each hole first.
