The 18-hole course is located off of Coneflower Drive inside Legacy Park adjacent to the newly developed park shelters on the northwest side of the park.
Disc golf is played like ball golf, except that a flying disc or frisbee is used. The object of the game is to land your disc into the metal “pole hole” baskets, using the fewest number of throws possible. The sport has seen tremendous growth in recent years as an inexpensive and healthy recreational activity.
The Legacy Park Disc Golf Course is equipped with concrete tee pads, benches, and trash receptacles at each hole. The course plays through both open prairie and scenic, wooded terrain. Alternate basket locations will allow the course to be set up at different distances to challenge the advanced player but also allow beginners and novices an opportunity to be introduced to the sport. The course is open for play seven days a week during regular park hours and is free to play.
