An American craze that has grown in popularity is set to hit a country park this Spring.

Disc Golf - described as an exciting, unique and family friendly new activity - is being introduced at Caldecott Hall Country Park.

Popular in the USA and Canada, Disc Golf is a competitive game that follows the basic rules of golf - but with a twist.

Players have to throw a disc - or frisbee - into baskets located around a course.

And people locally can now enjoy the fun as Disc Golf takes centre stage at the Tingdene Caldecott Hall Country Park at Fritton in between Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft.

Greg Doggett, operations manager for the park operator Tingdene, said: "Caldecott Hall Country Park is a truly beautiful location in a stunning part of the Norfolk countryside.

"We wanted to introduce some activities that would enhance the park further as a destination for the whole family.

"Disc Golf is something entirely different that we thought would offer a truly unique experience for all ages."

The Disc Golf course is being installed on the estate’s current par three, nine hole golf course and is a first for the local area, with the nearest Disc Golf course being in Kings Lynn.

With the launch of Disc Golf to Caldecott Hall Country Park, this is the first of some exciting new activities that the park operator plans to introduce at the location.

The company is planning on adding a golf academy along with Foot Golf.

Caldecott Hall Country Park is set in a stunning 400 acre estate, with a range of facilities on offer including an 18 hole Par 73 golf course, bar and restaurant and swimming pool, which is all open to the public.
