Disc Golf can be as simple or complex as you want it to be. One could enjoy a round with only using one disc. However, as your skill level progresses and your desire to throw further and shape your shots grows, you'll learn that you need more choices. Most players carry a few varieties of each type of disc (Distance Driver, Fairway Driver, Midrange Driver, Approach Disc and Putter).
Other equipment to be considered include a bag to carry your equipment, a hand chalk bag for controlling your grip, a couple towels for drying yourself and your discs, a disc retriever for when your disc goes swimming, a stool for resting between holes, a water bottle for hydration, and snacks for fuel.
