We begin at Dicks Sporting goods…why? Because as a beginner you’ll find it easier to choose a disc when you don’t have a thousand options with a thousand different colors and names, also not every place has a disc golf store so in some cases a Dicks sporting goods is all you have.
1: Be sure not to shop based on color
2: Look for putters and midranges as those are much more beginner friendly, avoid high speed drivers…for now, below is a list of good discs to start with.
3: If you decide to buy a driver please be aware of you surroundings when throwing, be extra safe.
When in doubt just buy a starter set.
If you are not sure where a course is located in your area, download an app called UDISC and that will help, or just join a local club such as the myrtle beach disc golf club on Facebook.
Or just Google it like a normal person with common sense would…I mean you got a smart phone for a reason right??
Below are some typical discs you may find at Dicks sporting goods
Putt and approach (highly recommended to start with)
Aviar(not the aviar3, not the aviar x3)
High speed (if you dare) speed 9 or above
