Frisbee Golf With a Twist!

by

Cami-FrisbeeGolfTwist-Pinterest

Oh My Goodness!!  Can I just say how much fun I had with this date?!!!  I wanted to do something outdoors and active – SO I decided to plan a frisbee golf date, but with a twist!  I actually got my idea of the “twist” to this date from my family reunion.  My mom planned a whole game of frisbee golf for our family, but had an activity to do at each hole.  I took that same fun idea and applied it to my date!   I was excited, so let the fun begin!

What you will need for this date: super cute printables (see below), tape if you are going to a park, or baskets if you are going to do this in the backyard, and of course…at least 1 frisbee.  Need a frisbee?  I found these GREAT ones for only $1.59!!!  Can’t beat that!  Just click FRISBEE.

Thanks to Colette from My Computer is My Canvas (who is so amazing!), I used her printables that I used to mark all my ‘holes’.   Click HERE for her AMAZING download (and some extra ideas for how to do this at home).  Thanks, Colette!!!

Before the date began, I went to the park and mapped out where I wanted each ‘hole’ (tree) to be for the game.  If you don’t have a park close, or want to just stay home, Colette’s printable is PERFECT for you.   I then went home and prepared my activity slips.  I was going to type these out, but my Microsoft Word decided to quit working, so I hand wrote all of mine, put a cute border around each one, and then cut them into 1-inch strips.

Here is what each of my strips said:

Hole 1: Name the top 5 most attractive physical things/features about your spouse

Hole 2: Name the 5 most attractive things about your spouse’s personality or character

Hole 3: Name 5 things you did today that your spouse didn’t know about

Hole 4: Name 5 places you wouldn’t mind moving to

Hole 5: Name 5 desserts you could eat right now

Hole 6: Name 5 favorite ways your spouse makes you feel special

Then I made a sheet that had consequences of both if you lose or win a hole.  This sheet read…

If you lose (a hole), you get to choose one from the list:

  • 5 push-ups
  • 5 sit-ups
  • 5 leg squats

If you win (a hole), you get to choose one from the list:

  • 5 kisses
  • 5 hugs
  • 5 kisses & hugs intermixed
  • 5 of whatever you want

On a tie, it’s a wash.  You don’t have to do any of the exercises, but you both get a reward!  Yahoo!

Anyway, we started out our date eating at home, and then left the kids with a sitter and headed off to the park with our frisbees.  Joseph helped me tape all the numbers and activities to the trees I had already mapped out.  We then took the scorecards and decided what par each hole was going to be.  And let the game begin!  I have to say that I held my own except for the first and last holes.  I ended behind but not by much.  I was proud of myself because I usually lose BIG time to him, especially in sporting events :).

We ended the date by getting smoothies.  We had SO much fun on this date.  I think the activities during the game was what MADE this date!  They spurred good conversations, flirting, and laughs.  As we finished up Joseph commented how much fun this date was and that he wanted an encore in the future.  What more can you ask for but for your date to want to do it again?!  Have so much fun.  We did!

      Colette is truly amazing. I definitely couldn’t have done as good of a job! I’m telling you – the ‘twist’ is the best part!

    Such a fun date, Cami! I love the suggestion of glow sticks for night from another reader. Can’t wait to try this!

    I just happened upon your site and it was \love\ at first sight! What an awesome idea! I’m super excited to try this with my husband! We are always trying to rack our brains for fun and inexpensive dates-this is perfect! You guys rock my world ;-)

      Oh Suzi, I am SO excited that you love our site! I think it’s great too (but I’m not partial or anything!) :) I am glad that you like this date too. I’m all about the inexpensive yet super fun! Have SO much fun replicating this!

    I love this idea. What were the activities you had to do at each basket at your family reunion? I would love to know because I am planning a reunion and need some fun game ideas.

    • Cami Cami says:

      Amy, the things that my mom planned were a bit more, how do I say…’family bonding’ stuff. We are a spiritual family so one tree had a scripture to read out loud about family and then asked to say 3 things we loved about someone you were currently with. Here’s just a quick list of stuff we did, and things that could be helpful for you…
      – name a childhood memory that dealt with someone showing love to you
      – name a funny childhood memory
      – name some family traditions that we do to build unity
      – name one name of an ancestor of yours and if you know any personal facts about them
      – name all your grandparents’ full names
      – name something you hope to do with the family in the future
      – name your favorite family vacation

      More fun things could be:
      – do 3 somersaults
      – jump up and down as you sing the alphabet
      – say a wish you have always wanted to come true
      – try to do a handstand
      – do a cart wheel
      – make up a short family cheer and share it with the whole group at the end of the game
      – turn around in 5 circles before throwing your frisbee at the next hole

      Hope this helps! Have fun on your family reunion!

    Cami!! This is such a fun idea! I love Frisbee golf! Even though I’m totally horrible at it, I’m actually hysterical to watch and since I love to laugh at myself…well, anyway, Love it1 My husband would surely have a good time with this.

    • Cami Cami says:

      Kari – I am SO with you on being hysterical to watch, but if you can’t laugh at yourself, then what’s the fun of life? Ha, ha! Have fun doing this with your hubby! Prego and all… :)

    Love this idea!! Super cute! Thanks for sharing!

    Question though… I’m new to Frisbee Golf, never played it before. What are the strips with the name 5 things and such for?! I was just a little confused and where you incorporate that in with the game.

    Thanks again!

    • Cami Cami says:

      @Meghan- if you have never played Frisbee golf, then the strips of paper are probably TOTALLY throwing you off! The idea behind Frisbee golf is to get to a ‘hole’ (in this case a tree) in so many frisbee throws. If you feel like it will take you 5 throws to get there, then the number 5 would be your ‘par’, etc. The strips of paper came into play at each ‘hole’ (tree). I had attached a strip to each tree and when we got to that tree we had to do what the paper said. The strips of paper are my ‘twist’ on Frisbee golf. Did that help clarify at all? Let me know if I need to help more. It would probably be helpful to google ‘frisbee golf’ if you need more help on understanding the game itself. Hope this helps!

    Do you have the activities that were used for the family reunion? I love the date night ideas, but am looking for some fun (different) activities for when my family is in town for a gathering. Thanks! :)

    • Cami Cami says:

      @Jen- the activities we did for our family reunion were similar to what my strips of paper said. The list of ideas I already gave you would be easily tweaked for a family setting. We also had activities about naming grandparents on both sides, great grandparents, recite a story you remember hearing about an ancestor, etc. My mom is really into us getting to know our heritage so a lot of the activities centered on our family history. If you still need ideas, let me know!

    So perfect for my husband and I! Thanks for sharing!
