18. you're not looking
There are Frisbees everywhere. Even here, at the retirement community I live in, we have a Frisbee golf course designed by a professional. You don't see quite as many in backyards these days, but when you go to parks, they are a common site. Disc golf is a rising fad. There are five courses within a 50 mile radius of my home!
