If you’re new to disc golf, and more specifically winter disc golf, here are some tips to help make your visit more enjoyable. W're also happy to answer any questions you may have about disc golf, we always love growing the sport.
Make sure you have gloves. Your hands will definitely get cold just walking around. You’ll only have to take them off for a few moments to throw.
Wear warm winter footwear with decent traction. Our concrete teepads are covered with treated rubber mats that we keep shoveled off. The paths between baskets can be snow packed, wet, and possibly icy in spots.
Bring a towel to wipe the snow from your discs. Snow may stick and will affect the flight of the disc.
If your disc goes into the snow look for a slit in the snow where you think it landed. Discs often stand upright in the snow but just under the surface
