What is Disc Golf?

Disc Golf (the proper name for Frisbee Golf) is a family fun activity for the Miltenbergers. It’s one they can enjoy easily in the Twin Cities with the different courses around the metro.  Many of them are free.

Disc Golf: a game in which a concave plastic disc is thrown into each of a series of metal baskets situated on an outdoor course, the object being to complete the course using the fewest possible throws.  

In other words think golf with a frisbee-like disc instead of a small ball and clubs. (It’s not Frisbee Golf since Frisbee is a brand name, much like Hooping is not Hula Hooping since Hula is a brand name. If you want to get technical.)

Disc Golfing is a easy sport to jump into.  You need two things.

  • A couple of discs: a driver and a putter.  If you want a third, feel free to grab a midrange disc.  Use the driver at the tee and the putter on the approach, just like in traditional golf.

A free course with 15 holes and not too many places to lose discs.
There are not too many trees, and it’s easier for beginners.

More about Todd

Todd and Andrea have two kids, Zeke-14 and Myriam- 11. Their family loves to spend time in the outdoors, but they also love a good movie.

“Friday home-made pizza and movie night is tied with campfire smoritos in the northwoods.  I think I like food!” Todd said about two of his favorite activities to do with his family.  The smoritos are amazing.  Wrap s’mores ingredients inside a tortilla and melt it on the campfire.  The Miltenbergers introduced these to our family, and we couldn’t be happier!

Todd is a very active dad.  He is passionate about cycling (he practically grew up in the family-owned bike shop) and hiking/climbing. Each winter, he likes to make a quinzee (snow cave) in the backyard and camp out there with his kids.  And he makes some of the best Halloween costumes I have ever seen for Zeke.
