Also known as Frisbee Golf, Disc Golf is one of the fastest growing sports in the country.
This Fall, play a round of disc golf on the Brewster Ridge 18 Hole Disc Golf Course at Smugglers'! Like the traditional game of golf, Disc Golf provides recreation, challenge, competition and just plain fun for participants of all ages - from 6 to 106! This is a great way to combine a Fall walk in the woods with a game the whole family can play.
The Brewster Ridge Course (18-hole, par 60)
Situated in and around our cross-country and snowshoe trails, and encompassing about 10 acres of the forested area. Just like regular golf, each hole is comprised of a "tee box," "fairways," and a "green." The ultimate target on the "green" is a specially designed metal basket on a pole, strategically placed in true golf course fashion. Each hole has a par ranging from 3 to 5 strokes ... or throws. It takes about 90 minutes to play the entire 18 hole round.
There are discs designed specifically for Disc Golf. There's a Fairway Driver Disc, a Mid-Distance Disc and a Putter Disc. You are welcome to bring your own flying discs, but most players prefer the specifically designed discs for this type of play.
