None of the variations would involve handicaps (for obvious reasons) and like darts or pool, can create different games in a team setting (possibly). Darts is an individual sport but they now have team darts in bars and they play different types of games where its not just a countdown from 501. 

Amen

I agree with this.  My wife, who I can't get to play on a regular course,  will play on a pitch an putt from time to time.

 

Start off with pitch and putt, then to a par 3 then on to a regular golf.  

 

Do we have anyone that started out with Frisbee golf or foot golf and then move on to regular golf?

no you just play slow pitch softball...
