Disc Golf Courses in NW Arkansas

What is Disc Golf?

Disc golf is played much like golf. Instead of a ball and clubs, though, players use a flying disc or Frisbee®. The sport was formalized in the 1970s and shares with golf the object of completing each hole in the fewest strokes (or, in the case of disc golf, fewest throws).

A golf disc is thrown from a tee area to a target, which is the "hole." The hole can be one of a number of disc golf targets; the most common is an elevated metal basket. As a player progresses down the fairway, he or she must make each consecutive throw from the spot where the previous throw landed. The trees, shrubs, and terrain changes located in and around the fairways provide challenging obstacles for the golfer. Finally, the "putt" lands in the basket and the hole is completed.

Disc golf shares the same joys and frustrations of golf, whether it's sinking a long putt or hitting a tree halfway down the fairway. There are a few differences, though: Disc golf is often free to play in public parks, although pay-to-play courses are trending upward; you probably won't need to rent a cart, but converted golf course layouts are also on the rise; and your "tee time" will usually come during tournament competition, not casual play. 

Disc golf provides upper and lower body conditioning, aerobic exercise, and mental stimulation. Concentration skills increase by mastering shots and negotiating obstacles, and players of limited fitness levels can start slowly and gradually increase their level of play.

Scheduling is also flexible: A casual round takes one to two hours and may be played alone, eliminating the difficulty of scheduling tee times. Perhaps the greatest attribute of the sport is the low barrier to entry. A professional quality disc costs roughly $15, and it only takes one for basic play.

And, of course, there's the sheer fun of the game - no matter what your age or skill level!

You can play with any frisbee or you can purchase a set when you get more serious. 

Where can I play


There are several courses around the area but here are the top choices


1. Twin Creeks - Located next to Rogers High School just off Dixieland in Rogers, AR. - We love how well maintained the course is and how beautiful the scenery. There are walking and bike paths as well if you have a group that does not want to play with you.

2. KJ Memorial Park425 Bellview St Lowell, AR 72745 - Laid out in a circle inside of a walking trail. Negotiate around mature oaks with nice grass below.

3. McKissick Course- Located at 424 allen Rd in Centerton - Slightly hilly and moderately wooded on both sides of a small creek. Relatively short, but two holes over 400'.
