Your Northern Colorado Disc Golf Course Directory
Disc golfing is a favorite outdoor activity for many Coloradans. Not only is it good exercise and lots of fun, but it’s a pretty inexpensive hobby too. With the exception of purchasing discs, it’s free to play at most courses around our area. Below is where you can find Frisbee courses in Northern Colorado:
Cache La Poudre Jr. High
The course behind CLP is tucked away in a very natural, wooded setting. It’s only 9 holes so if you want to play a full round, you’ll have to go around twice. Frolfers should be aware that on school days, use of the course is only permitted after 3 p.m.
Fort Collins High School
This is a very flat course with 9 holes and few trees. Since it’s on-site at Fort Collins High School, it’s another one that’s only open to players after 3 p.m. on school days. For a more competitive game, locals like to incorporate sidewalks and concrete drains as out of bounds areas.
Boltz Junior High
Boltz is a great course for beginners to learn the game and for pros to practice what they’ve got. It’s nine holes that are relatively short, but there are definitely some obstacles, such as the creek and a couple trees that keep things interesting. Playing here usually takes about 30 to 45 minutes for two people, whereas places like Edora can take all day.
Aggie Greens at Hughes Stadium
Aggie Greens is one of the newer courses in NoCo and offers a challenge for all skill levels. The 18 holes are long, and players are taken up and down hills several times. The trees are still young, but once they get bigger this course will likely become way more difficult.
Wellington Disc Golf Course
Wellington’s course features 18 holes that are a mix of both long and short. It’s usually far less crowded than other courses around the area, and is only 15 minutes away from Fort Collins. It’s very well taken care of and the trees and creek make it fun to play at.
Oxbow Natural Area
Oxbow is a very scenic 12-hole course that requires accuracy from those playing on it. Although the holes are short, you’ll have to use a variety of different shots during game play. A map can be downloaded here.
Thompson Valley High School
The half course at Thompson Valley High School is a great one for people who are just starting out. It’s short and easy, with the longest hole measuring only around 80-90 yards. It’s also very open and flat with few obstacles along the way.
Mehaffey Park Disc Golf Course
The 9-hole course at Mehaffey Park was only built last year, but attracts players of all levels. It’s mostly flat in a natural field grass setting, with some lightly wooded spots. More is expected to be done with this design in the future.
River Ranch Disc Golf Course
River Ranch is an awesome place to play when you want to escape the crowds. It’s 18 grassy holes with some water hazards and big trees, which definitely up the challenge. Seasoned players recommend not wearing sandals to this course.
The course at Epple Park is only 6 holes, so you might want to play it a couple times on a nice day. The fairways are lined with trees, and there’s also a small pond and creek. It’s short and simple, making it great for beginners and young players too.
University of Northern Colorado Disc Golf Course
UNC’s 9-hole course is a par-27, par-3 at each hole. It’s spread throughout the west side of campus, and can be crowded with pedestrians during school hours, but calms down on nights and weekends. The terrain is mostly flat with several trees. Parking here is free after 5 p.m. and on Saturday/Sunday.
Pioneer Park in Evans is another 9-hole course that’s relatively flat and somewhat wooded. After it rains, a fairly large pond usually develops smack in the middle of the course, providing a little extra challenge for players here.
The Outback Disc Golf Course
The Outback is a full course, however, at times can be unplayable due to the tall grass. Between April and October is said to be the peak time to go here. When the grass is mowed, the 18 holes are pretty tough, with a couple bomber holes and some shorties too, as well as a creek and marshy spots. You can pick up a course map at the FunPlex front desk and make sure you leave your dog at home on this one.
The small course at Loomiller Park in Longmont is very well maintained. The pin placements, mature trees and lakes definitely require knowledge and skill of the game, at times requiring throws that go directly over the water. White it’s easy to navigate, there can be a lot of foot traffic in the park to watch out for during game play.
YMCA of the Rockies
This full course up in Estes Park is ideal for experienced players, but before you make the drive, it’s important to know that it costs $15 for non-YMCA members to play. The course is hilly, full of Aspen trees, and also has a ravine that runs along some of the holes. Maps and scorecards are available at the Sweet Memorial Building.
Sundance Trail Disc Golf Course
If you’re up in Red Feather camping for the weekend, you can play 18 holes at the scenic Sundance Trail Disc Golf Course. One round will cost you $3 or you can choose the all day option for $5. The terrain is hilly and wooded with rocks, ponds and a pasture too. Just head to the main lodge to find the first tee.
Clark Centennial Park
This is a fun filled 9-hole course that is next to the Oligarchy ditch, which comes into play on a couple holes. There are large, mature trees and manicured fairways that allow all levels of play to have a good time.
Mt. Mead Park
A brand new course is being put in this spring at Mt. Mead Park. It is still in it’s infancy as there are no tee pads yet, but it offers some elevation that makes shots challenging while displaying gorgeous views of the Front Range.
