5 Must-See Disc Golf Courses in Fargo-Moorhead

Gaining popularity but not yet fully mainstream, disc golf is a great sport for people of all ages and our cities offer a host of different options for people to get out and play.

How to Play

*These are official rules. However, they certainly do not need to be followed exactly during casual game.

  • Each hole begins with a tee throw which much be completed in or behind the tee area.
  • The player with the least amount of strokes on the previous hole is the first to throw. After tee shots, the player that remains furthest from the hole throws first.
  • Fairway throws must be made from directly behind the lie. A run-up and normal follow through, after release, is allowed, unless the lie is within 10 meters of the hole. Any shot within 10 meters of the hole must be completed with a stationary stance.
  • Any disc that rests above the ground is considered unplayable. Players must pay the disc from below where it lands.
  • Any disc thrown out of bounds must be played one meter in bounds from where the disc went out of bounds.
  • You are finished with a hole when the disk comes to rest in the basket.

What You Need To Play

All the main disc companies sell a starter pack. They even have them at Walmart. Usually, the pack will have a driver, a putter and a mid-range disk. That is what I would recommend for beginners.

Where to Play

1. Iwen Park, Fargo

Iwen’s disc golf course is the longest and most difficult course in the area. However, one could also say, it is the most beautiful. This championship course with multiple par 4’s is well worth checking out.

2. Trollwood Park, Fargo

Is a moderately difficult course with a good mix of wooded and park play.

3664 Elm St N, Fargo, ND 5B102

3. Oak Grove, Fargo

Is on the easier end of the spectrum but is no less beautiful. This 18 hole course features tall oak trees and is the oldest course in town

170 Maple St, Fargo, ND 58102

4. Rendezvous, West Fargo

The West Fargo Park District has two 9-hole Disc Golf Courses in Rendezvous Park, each having its own unique challenges. Players here will have to contend with plenty of wind due to the lack of trees.

1055 3 2nd Ave W, West Fargo, ND 58078

5. Woodlawn Park, Moonhead

Is a moderately difficult course with a good mix of wooded and park play.
