Disc (Frisbee) Golf is a game in which individual players throw a flying disc into a basket or at a target. According to the Professional Disc Golf Association, “The object of the game is to traverse a course from beginning to end in the fewest number of throws of the disc.” Of the more than 3000 established disc golf courses as of 2010, approximately 87% are free. The sport has grown at a rate of 12-15 percent annually for more than the past decade, with nearly 3,000 courses in the US and over 3,000 globally. The game is played in over 40 countries worldwide.
Our own course was started by disc golf enthusiasts in 2007 and now features 18 chain basket goals distributed over several acres in the southeast portion of the Park. A map of the course is in the works. It will be posted here as well as at the Park. If you want to play the course in the meantime, call the phone number listed below.
Our course is closely affiliated with both the Humboldt County disc golf club Par Infinity (www.ParInfinity.org), which maintains a calendar of Humboldt County disc golf events, and the semi-private Birds of Paradise disc golf course near Miranda, created by Caleb Gribi.
