Best Disc Golf Courses in Columbus
Disc golf is a great way for my friends and I to unwind outside work. It’s a challenge that rewards experience that allows people of any skill to have serious competitive fun without risking physical injury. We’re lucky that the Columbus area has some great disc golf courses. Here’s where to get started.
Blendon Woods DGC
Blendon Woods is one of my favorite courses around Columbus. This course has been around since 1985 and is advertised as the oldest course in Columbus.
This is a fantastic course for beginners and offers technical shots for more advanced players. The baskets are surrounded by concrete which makes throwing an approach shot slightly more challenging. This is a good course for mid-range and forehand shots.
I have always been impressed with the upkeep here as the course is always in good shape for the players. Because this has been here for so long, going off the fairway does not penalize you as much as other courses since most of the brush has been cleared over time.
Ohio Christian University
Located outside of Columbus, but close to my home in Ashville, Ohio (30-40 minutes from center of downtown Columbus) is this fantastic course at OCU.
This may very well be my favorite course to play currently. Last year, this course was completely redone and had concrete tees put in. This is the home course of the OCU Trailblazers. It was built and designed with the team in mind. The front nine is shorter and more technical, while the back nine is more spacious and allows you to work on your long game.
The course is in beautiful condition and really allows you to practice all areas of your game.
Simsbury is a super fun course located just outside the city in Pickerington, Ohio. Simsbury has a great variety of short/long holes with elevation changes that make this course a must visit if you’re around the area.
The OB can be rough depending on the time of year, but this course is well maintained and great to play in the fall.
