A buddy of mine recently got me into the game of disc golf. It’s pretty much just like golf, just with flying discs. After your drive, when you go to pick up your disc to throw again or change discs from a driver to mid-range or to a putter you place a 4” mini disc down to mark your discs place. After searching the internet for a mini disc, I couldn’t find any I really liked, so I decided to make one. I used a 4” hole saw to get the size and shape. I then used a router to hollow out the middle and get the concave edge on the bottom. The first one I made my buddies saw what I had done and offered to buy it off me. I ended up making a bunch so they could all have their own.

I used to play “Ultimate Frisbee”, but never played “Disc Golf”. I also play the “Original Golf” (club and dimpled ball).
Do you know why it is called “GOLF”.......
Because F&#K was already taken! Lol.

BTW: Nice job with the discs!

Very cool, I really like the turquoise one, is that just dye?

DIY, disc golf is just as frustrating, you should give it a try.

LukieB, I used a tinted stain from minwax. Unfortunately I don’t remember the name of the color. I used the same color stain for the turquoise and the earth just more coats.

Have your say...
