Woodland Park Disc Golf - Course Map
Introducing Disc Golf at Woodland Park!
Donated to the City of Columbia by the Columbia Noon Rotary this brand new addition comes with much anticipation and excitement. Disc golf is a rapidly growing sport and pastime in America and we are very happy to now have our very own course! The disc golf course at Woodland Park offers some of the best scenery and aesthetics in Columbia. While playing, be sure to take time to learn the terrain of the course and where each basket is located in relation to the tee to help you with that perfect throw. Both amateur and advanced players are welcome to come experience everything this wonderful course has to offer!
