Disc Golf Discs That Float

No ratings yet.

I learned a valuable lesson a few years ago while playing a round of disc golf at my local course. If you play disc golf at any regularity this might be useful to you. The thing I learned the hard way was you just never know when you are going to need one of disc golf discs that float in water. Even on courses you may not think this kind of disc would be useful they can come in handy.

My local course doesn’t have any traditional water traps. There aren’t any lakes or ponds along the fairways or next to the putting greens. I’m not throwing my discs next to or across any streams or rivers. But I still found a way to sink my disc in some water.

It was a nice warm day with the sun shining and the course was mostly dry but there were still some damp areas. It had rained hard a few days before and some parts of the course where flooded. On the first hole, I stepped on the tee and selected my favorite driver and launched a hard drive through the wooded fairway. I lost sight of my disc as it passed over a hill and to my unbelieving ears I heard a splash.

As I came over the top of the hill I saw that the fairway had flooded. I knew my disc was somewhere in the water but I couldn’t see it because the water was murky and filled with leaves. After about thirty minutes or so of looking, I gave up. Using a stick in the water to try and locate the disc just wasn’t going to work.

So if you find yourself on a disc golf course with some water hopefully you’ll have one of the discs below. If you are as unlucky as I was and end up with your disc in the water at least you’ll be able to easily locate it and fish it out.

Here is another driver that floats by Innova. It’s not as fast as the Wahoo but still has a lot of glide and is fairly understable. This is the perfect disc for newer players that may be reluctant to throw over water. Check out our review on the Innova Dragon.

The Aquarius is a great distance driver that floats. Because of its understable flight and high glide, this disc is a great choice for beginners that need to throw over a water hazard. Keep one in your bag and don’t let those long shots of water scare you.
