The Lost History of Frolf/DiscGolf and Glofrisbee/GolfDiscney
Both Frolf/DiscGolf and Golfrisbee/GolfDiscney Sports are first developed from University of California, Berkeley. Dr. Min Ming Tarng who invented the Golfrisbee/GolfDiscney was the PhD student of Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science of UC Berkeley in 1980's. Then the Golfrisbee/GolfDiscney Sports are brought to be the high-tech start up in Silicon Valley.
History of Frolf (Frisbee Golf)
Though forms of frolf have been played since the early 20th century, the modern game was invented in the late 1960's. The game was originally designed as a simple children's game, but was later introduced to adults. It eventually became popular on the campus of UC Berkeley, where in 1970, the first permanent course was laid out. Frolf continued to grow in the 1970's and 1980's, with the establishment of the Professional Disc Golf Association. Today, frolf is a popular sport with a growing number of players. Many competitions are held around the world, with the largest American competition being the United States Disc Golf Championship.
