About the Disc Golf Course
Established in 2016, the disc golf course at the south end of Columbia Park lies in an area formerly used by the Columbia Mining Company and Federal Lead Company for railroad lines. The unique combination of forested terrain crossed by old rail beds has attracted tournament players from around the region. Amateurs and more serious players consider the Park Hills course one of the most challenging in Missouri.
The front nine holes were designed to offer easier and shorter play, winding around for a quick return to the parking lot. The back nine holes provide the most difficult play and longer pars. The entire course includes separate tees designed for men and for women on each hole. Hole six has consistently been called the most challenging of the 18 holes.
The Columbia Park disc golf course is open for public play without reservation from dawn until dusk every day.
