These discs are called beginner friendly because they are easy to learn, easier to control. But beginner golf discs are not just for beginners. Top pro players throw these discs too because some are indispensable and some are great for certain shots.

It's recommended that new players start with a standard plastic mid range disc that is light weight and understable.

  • Standard plastic because it is the least expensive in case you lose it and because it is more understable than higher quality plastics.
  • Mid range because they are easier to control than longer range drivers.
  • Light weight because they are easier to control than heavier discs. A lighter disc doesn't have as strong of a tendency to curve left or right.
  • Understable because they are the easiest to throw, most beginner friendly and fly further since they don't have as strong of a tendency to fade or curve left when thrown flat, straight and with average power for right handed back hand (RHBH) throws. Just the opposite for lefties.

Once you develop the control and feel for throwing, you can go for more distance and finesse with other mid and long range drivers. You can also experiment with heavier discs to find the weight that's right for your arm strength.
