Hands-On Thomas County held its first 'Mac Attack' disc golf tournament in MacIntyre Park to celebrate a new playing field and raise money for the organization.
The 12-hole course was built by HOTC volunteers, and group leaders say the event was a way to celebrate all of their hard work.
Players say the sport is fun because it's 'different.'
Says tournament player Jim Henderson, "[It's] very challenging ... that's why -- that's what makes it so much fun, there's so many different angles to throw the disc at, and different terrain to affect the course and your throws."
Disc golf is a fusion game, which pairs a plastic disc with a golf-like course layout.
Players must toss their discs into various metal baskets from far away.
Whoever accomplishes the task in the least amount of throws wins.
The course is open to the public.
