If you’ve never tried disc golf, now is the time! There are several great Orlando disc golf courses to try, and each one has unique challenges and settings. Disc golf is basically the same as golf, but instead of hitting a ball into a hole, you throw a weighted frisbee, also known as the disc, into a basket. It is much friendlier to beginners than golf and is a great activity for the whole family.
Here are some of the best courses you must visit on your Orlando getaway.
Bill Frederick Park – If you want variety, look no further than this beautiful park on Turkey Lake, which is home to three 18-hole courses: The Woods, The Turkeynator, and Turkey Lake. Beginners and experts alike will love these courses. New to the game? Throw from the red or green tees to shorten each hole. One of the most important aspects of a disc golf course is clearly marked holes, and at Bill Frederick Park, each of the 54 holes has cement tees with hole layout pictures as well as numbered baskets.
Airport Lakes Park – At this scenic park, watch the airplanes as they fly over the lake to land at the airport just half a mile away. The disc golf course here has 9 holes, but each hole has two sets of tees and baskets, so you can play it as a normal 18-hole course. Escape the Florida sun and heat here since several of the holes are wooded.
Barnett Park – This park boasts two full 18-hole courses. Unfortunately, some of the holes on the park side course are unplayable because there is construction in the area. But the north course is fully playable and poses a fun test for disc golfers. Its famous 18th hole features a tee shot over a pond and onto a peninsula, where the basket sits under some trees. It is a well maintained and beautiful course with woodsy areas, open spaces, and water holes.
