DEVENS — According to Ric Hamel, director of Massachusetts Association for the Advancement of Disc Golf, once you try disc golf, golf using that little ball will never be the same.
“The distance you feel when you play the game feels about equivalent to that of ball golf because you are not getting the velocity you would off of a club,” Hamel said. “In disc golf, you are physically tossing the disc down the course. Technique can truly help someone dominate .”
Hamel and other disc golf professionals are setting out to bring more players to the evolving game with summer clinics for children eight-and-up starting on Monday, June 23, at 9 a.m. Registration details can be found at maadg.wordpress.com.
