Dino Trip 2003 - Glendive - Makoshika State Park - Folf

Folf is a contraction of Frisbee and Golf. It is played on a course with nine or eighteen "holes", with a tee off point and a gong for each pole, 150 to 250 feet away. Fly the frisbee from tee-off to gong and count throws; lowest score wins.

A Google search for folf yields over hits 4000 hits.

Here is a brief set of rules and a map of the course at Makoshika State Park.

The course was placed in low ground, with grass plateaus above and sand and rock washes below. In nine holes, Thomas and I got a good workout in 90 minutes of play, running up and down.

We had only one frisbee. After Dick lost the frisbee for five minutes on the second hole, we devised a method whereby one player would throw his entire hole while the other player 'spotted' halfway to the hole. We never lost the frisbee for long again.

Thomas is pointing to the next hole. Another hole and its gong is visible to his right.

We saw no rattlesnakes but did see plenty of cactus.

The anthills were enormous by Kansas standards. This one was two feet across and nine inches high. Look at the shadow it casts!
