Because of our temperate climate, Columbia is the perfect place to get your outdoor fix year-round. While you might already be aware of our outdoor recreation from walking trails, to fishing holes, you might not know about our robust disc golfing community.
Columbia is home to six disc golf courses (with another coming soon!), four of which are 18 or more holes. Sprinkled throughout the different districts in the region, there are plenty of spots for you to work on your power shot and help you score that coveted ace.
South East Park
Off Garners Ferry is Southeast Park. Classified as a “High-level” course, this public park is dog-friendly and offers 18 holes for your group to get the game going. Bring your favorite spectators along for the game, this park is stroller friendly and has places for the family to chill while you heat up.
Over in NOMA you’ll find yourself at Earlewood DGC, one of the oldest disc golf courses in the state. Known for its elevation changes, this course offers 18 holes that are each a fun challenge for you and the gang. Say hey to some locals who continuously return to this course because of how fun it is, you might even find yourself playing alongside one of the leagues.
Owens Field Park
Owens Field Park is the spot for you if you’re looking for a more technical, pro-level course. Don’t be surprised when you see some USC students giving it their all here, this park is the official home to the USC Disc Golf Team. When you’re done here stop close by and grab a brew or two at Hunter-Gatherer at the Hangar to discuss how you can improve your game.
Seven Oaks Park
Spend an entire Saturday with the family over in Irmo. Seven Oaks Park is home to a beginner-friendly course with a variety of holes laid out in a lightly wooded, flat park. A great course to learn the game and techniques on, you’ll want to treat yourself to a good lunch after a morning of new activities.
Satchel Ford Elementary
A perfect fit for the younger kids wanting to get into a new game, the course at Satchel Ford Elementary has nine holes with short and long tees for each hole. It’s also a fan-favorite for wanting to get a practice shot or two in. Take yourself out to a well-deserved dinner afterwards in one of the many places Forest Acres has to offer.
