Disc golf is the newest experience in Fraser Valley Regional Library’s playground lending collection.

A fast-growing outdoor sport, disc golf is played like regular golf except with discs thrown into baskets.

FVRL’s disc golf kits, free to borrow with a library card, are designed for one or two players and include six discs – two putters, two midranges, and two fairway drivers. Fun and accessible to players of all ages and abilities, disc golf can be played year round at the many free courses throughout the region – rain is no deterrent! Play on your own or with friends – it's a great way to spend time in nature, and exercise at your own pace.

“Inflation-friendly and sustainable, disc golf is a thrilling addition to the FVRL playground. The sport builds more than muscles, it fosters brain health through focus, movement, and practice,” says Heather Scoular, director of customer experience at FVRL. “It uniquely supports the STEAM related learning principles of math, engineering, and physics as players learn about course geometry, disc turning radius, speed, and game scoring.”

Place a hold to borrow a kit by visiting www.fvrl.ca/discgolf. Visit FVRL’s events page to find upcoming disc golf and Playground events.
