Colorado Springs is known for fabulous weather year-round, which makes it the perfect place to enjoy disc golf.
Similar to regular golf, the goal is to land your disc into the Disc Pole Hole – a pole extending up from the ground with a basket and chains to help stop the disc. The winner will have the fewest number of cumulative throws from the tee area to the hole throughout the 9- or 18-hole course. So gather your friends and your flying discs and head out to one of the disc golf courses in Colorado Springs.
