We call it the Frisbee Golf Course (that's so passé), but at one time when people only threw Wham-0's, that's pretty much what they called this place. Today, the Huntington Beach Disc Golf Course takes on some serious players who bring the disc bags filled with drivers, putters and the like, in colorful selections of half a dozen innova style discs.  These fancy frisbees are traded, bought and sold for improved scoring required to compete and win the weekly tournaments held (each Wednesday) at the popular course.

In existence since the 70's (1977, to be precise), and recognized as one of the earliest 18 hole disc courses, the course is not the shining example it once was as other, newer courses have been built. But it's every bit as enjoyed by the thousands of players (majority are guys), who come to Central Park in Huntington Beach to share an hour or two of competition and fun.

 

As the second disc course in the nation (first was in Pasadena in 1976), the course has held up through a number of changes and modifications. It's assets are its shaded lawns, and hill that goes down by a lake. Compared to an 18-hole golf course such as Meadowlark in Huntington Beach, its on a similar par as far as its competition goes. Some challenges, scenic setting, affordable pricing and easy access in the urban environment all make for a perfect hobby, new sport to try or serious competition. There's a portable restroom, snack shop and trade-ins and sales for discs.
