This sport is similar to golf, except with the use of a disc, or Frisbee. It is sometimes played on an organized course using chain-link baskets as holes, or sometimes the course is made up by the players, and trees and other obstacles are used as holes. Disc golf discs are smaller than Frisbees, and can be thrown up to 800 ft.
Big Sky courses

just above the Snowcrest Lodge. An
additional nine holes is located at the

Big Horn Ridge Community
Just steps away from the
Meadow Village center, this 18 hole
course is free and open to the public.
Discs are not provided, and a small donation
for the upkeep is appreciated.
Two years ago Jason Meyers and other
disc golfers in Big Sky received approval
from the BSCC and the Water and Sewer
District to build a nine-hole course. The
BSCC donated $3000 of initial funding,
and local business such as Grizzly Outfitters,
Gallatin Alpine Sports and Blue
Moon Bakery sponsored the individual
holes, and continue to pay $50 a year
Last year, Meyers and other disc golf
players in Big Sky raised enough funds
to implement an additional nine holes,
all with official chain holes. “There are
at least 10 community members that
are completely dedicated to sponsoring
holes and course maintenance,”
Meyers said. Without their support, the
course would not be possible.
Meyers invites novices and experts to
join other disc golfers on Tuesday evenings
at 6 p.m. for $3 random doubles
tournaments, where the winning team
keeps all the funds. Sign up for the Community
Park Celebration Tournament on
July 4, at 3 p.m. ($15, all donations go to
BSCC ). There will be three days of tournaments
during Cinnafest 2011, a music
and outdoors festival at the Cinnamon
Lodge, August 10 – 2. The tournament
will include random doubles, singles
and a Disc Craft Ace Race (discgolfacerace.

some of the state’s best players. Be prepared
for a fun weekend,” Myers said.
