Every Thursday at 6pm, anyone of any skill level can show up and play (or learn to play) disc golf at VanderYacht Park. There is a $5 entry fee which goes toward the grand prize for the day. Organizers include players of national caliber who are excited to introduce the sport to newcomers.
This weekly doubles tournament was originally organized by Meridian Disc Golf. Recently Meridian Disc Golf Founder Jason Waite suffered burns over 70% of his body and has been in the ICU for over 30 days according to his friends on the course. So now when they play, everyone adds $1 as a fundraiser to help Woods out.
Ferndale sporting goods retailer Second Avenue Sports carries different lines of discs and, according to owner Emily Heiser, they also have a beginners starter kit complete with a bag and discs.
