As you know, Park City has tons of options for outdoor Summer activities. Hiking, biking, kayaking, paddle boarding, fishing, golfing… About that golfing…
On my regular hikes (6 days a week) I noticed something new and different. Disc Golf holes. The holes are chains around a metal poles that serve as the holes for disc golf. And I started wondering. Does Park City have much to offer in the way ofdisc golf? It just has never been one of my things, so I’ve paid no attention.
I quickly got my answer. And that answer is, YES. Two quick finds includes:
Trailside Disc Golf Course “9-holes of unbelievable fun arranged on a sagebrush hillside at Trailside Park. Our natural mountain desert landscape offers a mix of longer downhill shots, uphill challenges, great exercise and gorgeous views of the Wasatch Back. Each hole has legit birdie potential for veteran players and the lack of tall obstacles makes it a great course for beginners. There aren’t many trees, but players should be cautious of wildlife, mountain bikers, midday winds and thick sagebrush outside of fairways. The course is playable year-round but disc tails are recommended during the winter months. Please follow signs and stay on established trails.”
Canyons Resort | Professional Disc Golf Association “Mid-mountain, ski resort course. Play free with valid winter season pass - or gondola fee is $15/day for adults, 6 and under free. Confirm via web site or contact that the course is up and playable.”
And if you’re up for a short drive there are a half dozen more options including:
Creekside Park in Murry. “The park itself has become one of the gems of the Salt Lake City disc golf community, featuring an 18 hole course. The park has some beautiful big trees and is relatively flat aside from the hill on the west side, and there is the namesake creek that runs along the south edge of the park. It is one of the best disc golf courses around, and plays hosts to leagues and tournaments.”
So, there you have it. One more great way to spend a day outside in the mountains.
Cheers to your next visit,
