Frolf Tips and Strategies

Frolf is a new Frisbee game that I learned to play. It is a game that is very much like golf, but you use Frisbee's as your clubs/balls. The object of the game is to toss your disc into the basket at the far end of the hole. You have to do this taking as few throws as possible. There are many nuances to this game, and I plan on putting them up here as I learn more about this great game.

Tips and Strategies
1.) One thing that I cannot stress enough is that you should always remember you are throwing for accuracy, not distance. Sure, it's nice when you can toss it right next to the basket, but for me, 2 out of 3 times when I really try to throw the bee far, it becomes an arm throw, and goes way far away from the basket, usually into the rough. 2.) Bee Choice. I'm sure that this is very important in Frolf. Personally I haven't seen much of a distance between my 3 'Bee regarding distance, but I have noticed my putter is considerably more accurate. As I get better this will probably change, but as of now I'm a one Bee man. I reccommend that you try out all three types that they sell at Dunham's, and find out which one is best for you. 3.) Wind. The wind is always there, and usually it's purpose is to screw you up. Because of this, it is imperative that you try to keep your 'Bee low. This is especially true with your driver. If it gets above 20 or 30 feet, you'll start to see a very harsh hook to the left or right, depending on how you threw it. Also, while putting, the wind is still there, and will definitely mess up your putt if you aren't thinking about it. 4.) When to "go for it". Sometimes on the course you'll end up something like 20 feet away from the basket. This is definitely a shot that could be made, but perhaps not at your skill level. You have to decide whether you'll go for the shot, and risk overshooting the hole, or if you'll just toss your bee at the ground at the base of the basket. This is all a matter of personal skill though, after a few games this decision will come more easily to you.
