If you are looking for a fun outdoor activity – why not try your hand at disc golf at Auchnagairn in Moray? Disc golf is similar to ‘regular’ golf, except you aim a frisbee at a basket. The player who takes the least number of throws is the winner. Ace Adventures have set up 3 different 9 hole courses within a larch pine forest to cater for beginners and advanced players. An all-day pass costs £12 and includes discs. However, if you bring your own discs the day pass is £6. If you live in the area you can also get a week pass or a yearly membership.
Just like traditional ball golf, there is more or less the same terminology such as eagles, birdies, par, bogies etc which are scores above or below par (the average number of throws required for the hole.
