Columbia Parks & Recreation has three 18-hole disc golf courses - two courses at Albert-Oakland Park and one course at Indian Hills Park.
Disc golf is a lot like traditional "ball" golf, except players use specially made plastic flying discs instead of balls and clubs, and throw them for 'par' at an above-ground target instead of a hole in the ground. There are different types of discs used for different purposes, much like ball golfers use different clubs.
The object of the game is to throw a golf disc into the target, typically a "Pole Hole" basket (a steel basket over which chains hang), in the fewest number of throws.
Columbia Parks & Recreation rents a portable Disc Golf steel basket for only $10.00 per day. Rental fee includes 4 discs. Go to the Parks & Recreation office at 1 South 7th Street (573-874-7460) to rent one today!
