Frisbeegolf or Discgolf:

Is played on terrains, where the objective is to throw the Frisbee in the target with the lowest number of throws are called Pole-hole. It is a basket with steel chains, where the Frisbee has to end up and falls down into the basket. This sport is quite similar to golf and it is the sport we play at Jaskólka in Poland. Most important with all Frisbee sports is the Spirit of the Game, which means that the Frisbee players play fair and with respect with each other. For this reason, a referee is not needed because the players will solve issues themselves.
