Disc Golf

Disc Golf Course

One of the most popular features at Madeline Bertrand is a challenging disc golf course. Disc golf is a game played with a flying disc, or what many call a "frisbee." Players make their first throw from the tee area and then throw again from the spot where the disc lands. To make their final "putt," players throw the disc into a metal basket or "disc catcher." Like traditional golf, the player with the fewest number of strokes (or in this case, throws) wins. It's an easy, fun, and affordable game for players of all age and skill levels!

2022 Disc Golf Tournaments

Each year, Madeline Bertrand puts on three non-sanctioned tournaments; spring, summer and fall. Multiple divisions are available to accommodate all skill levels! Two rounds are played, often with three additional baskets for two 21-hole rounds. We play for trophies to the top three places in each division, and lunch and raffled door prizes are included.

This year, the dates are 

  • Spring, Singles: Saturday, April 30th. Thanks for all who participated!
  • Summer, Doubles: Saturday, July 9th.  Registration is closed; all spots are filled. The course will be closed to public play until the tournament concludes in the afternoon, approximately 3:00pm.
  • Fall, Singles: Saturday, October 8th. This one includes 2023 annual disc golf and parking passes in the raffle, so don't miss out!
  • We will also be hosting Sand Ridge Disc Golf Club's Gilligan's Islands Tournament here on October 15th.

Course

The Madeline Bertrand disc golf course features 18 holes from spring through fall. The course is open to all during regular park hours and is host to several disc golf events each year.

Equipment

While any disc can be used to play the game, golf discs are specifically designed for the sport. Some are designed to curve left or right, while others are designed for long-range drives or to maximize short range accuracy. Some players carry just one disc, but many carry several in their disc golf bags. The disc golf pro shop in the Visitor Center at Madeline Bertrand features a full line of golf discs and accessories for sale - and you can also rent discs here!
