A lot of people I talk to do not know the difference between Ultimate and disc golf, and honestly if i didn’t play the sport I wouldn’t know either. So, I will do my best to explain the differences. Ultimate is played with a plastic disc inside a field. The goal for each team is to score in the opponent’s end zone. You can not run with the disc and there is no contact. Disc Golf is played on a 18 hole course with different types of disc. The goal of disc golf is to make the disc in a chain net in the least amount of throws.
