Woodland Park Disc Golf Course!

The disc golf course at Woodland Park, donated to the City of Columbia by the Columbia Noon Rotary, offers some of the best scenery and course play 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!
