About the Course
Nestled on 27 acres of rolling aspen covered hills in Northwest Calgary, the David Richardson Memorial Disc Golf Park is a one-of-a-kind disc golf facility. The course is a par-66, 18-hole layout ranging from over 8,000 ft in length for experts, to 4,900 ft for beginners and families. The course is the longest in the City of Calgary built with the intent of being a professional tournament venue.
This diverse layout features everything from long, 800ft par-5’s, that will take all the strength you’ve got, to short par-3’s with the potential for an ace run. The combination of rolling topography and tree lined fairways provides plenty of strategic interest for those looking for a challenge – not to mention the numerous water hazards!
The park is an amenity located on the Rotary Mattamy Greenway – a 138 km long continuous pathway network serving Calgarians by providing access to a number of unique amenities including: off-leash dog parks, family fitness parks, educational wetland interpretive areas and unique play structures.
