The Orchard Park and Disc Golf Course is open from dawn until dusk. The relatively short and family-friendly nine-hole course is the City's first disc golf course and was installed with the help of volunteers. The course is 1,972 feet in length and has a variety of challenges including navigating the cherry orchard on the first three holes.
Disc Golf Terminology
Have fun and play the course from beginning to end with the fewest throws.
- Tee off
Tee throws must be released from within the designated tee area.
The spot where the disc lands.
- Throwing order
Lowest score on previous hole tees first. After the tee-off the player whose lie is farthest from the target throws first.
- Fairway throws
Must be made from on the lie. A run up and follow through is permitted.
Within 10 yards of the target a player may not step past the lie when attempting a putt throw.
- Completion of hole
The hole is complete when the disc is in the basket or supported by the chains.
- Out of bounds
A throw that lands out of bounds must be played from the point where the disc went out (1 throw penalty). Out of bounds areas include all paved trails and fences. Do not climb fences or trespass to retrieve discs that leave the park.
- Do not throw until players or park users are out of range! Trail users have the right-of-way.
- Please respect landscape areas and obey all other park regulations.
- Please help keep our park clean by using trash receptacles.
