Disc Golf! A Walk with a Purpose!
Meet our retired friend Jeff Fontaine! Seven years ago, Jeff retired from South Texas and moved back to his home state of North Dakota. This retired educator fills his days with a great second career and plenty of time to do the activities he loves. You can catch him on his bike, kayak, or walking 27 holes of disc golf! He talks today about disc golf and why he loves it. We love disc golf also, so this episode is close to our hearts!
