ST. CLOUD -- This week in Fun Friday, we check out disc golf at Riverside Park in St. Cloud.

Disc golf is a sport that has exploded in popularity over the last decade, with more and more courses, stores and leagues popping up -- especially in college towns.

For those who don't know, disc golf works exactly how regular golf does -- players tee off using a "driver" disc (a light and sharp disc designed for longer distances) and use a "putter" (heavier disc) when close to the hole.

There are several disc golf courses that are easy to find at just about any park in the St. Cloud area -- and it's completely free.

What you need to know:
WHERE: Most parks around the St. Cloud area
OPEN: Just about any time
COST: Free, but the discs will cost you
