Disc golf has become a local favorite in the area as it allows a great opportunity to get together with friends, hike in the outdoors and have a friendly competition.
Disc golf is similar to golf. The course made up of tees, fairways and baskets. The discs, similar to frisbees, are weighted and sized for throwing long distances, mid-range or putting, and everything in between. It has become a popular activity among mountain locals and is a great way to enjoy the outdoors.
The rugged terrain of the Frisco disc golf course
makes it a challenging, yet VERY fun, course. Wind your way through the pine trees alongside the lake while you try not to lose your disc in the woods! The Frisco course offers beautiful panoramic views of the Lake and Buffalo Mountain and makes for a great morning or afternoon activity.
Grab some friends or your family and head over to the Frisco Adventure Park for a game! Frisco is just 7 miles from Breckenridge and the course is on Lake Dillon and surrounded by views of Buffalo Mountain, Red Peak, and the Tenmile Range. The Peak One Disc Golf course (621 Recreation Way, Frisco, CO) is free to use for the public and offers a wide variety of terrain and obstacles with holes taking you through open meadows, trees, and up and down hills. If you don’t have discs, you can purchase them at the Frisco Adventure Park Day Lodge, or sporting goods stores such as Pioneer Sports which is just a mile from the Adventure Park in Frisco. Call 970-668-2558 with questions.
The Lake Dillon Disc Golf course
is considered more difficult than the Frisco Adventure Park as it requires hiking fairly steep hills and throwing from elevated points that are often quite windy. This course offers spectacular views of Lake Dillon and the surrounding mountains.
