Disc Golf

Disc Golf

In a joint effort between Gateway Disc Sports and the City of Farmington, an 18 hole par 62 disc golf course was developed in Engler Park. The course features a shorter technical front nine with a nice par, four on hole nine with the lake coming into play on the drive and again by the basket. The back nine is a much longer and more challenging course that will rival any nine holes in the state. A tourney layout will feature an island green and some very tough shots; especially from the long tees.

Birthday parties are welcomed. Private rentals are offered. Group rates and season passes are available. Open Memorial Day-Labor Day.
