Lafreniere Park in Metairie, Louisiana. Disc golfers must be patient. Courses are usually free but they are often shared. 

Disc golf is similar to ball golf. You tee off at a designated spot and then continue to throw until you get your disc into the basket. “My wife doesn’t really play disc golf but she comes and plays with me and she probably has more fun than I do. She’s just out here enjoying the scenery.”
