Disc golf is growing in Cache Valley!
If you’re looking for a place to play, we have several neighborhood and tournament disc golf courses.
Small, 6-9 hole neighborhood courses can be found in Nibley, Hyrum, Amalga, Smithfield, North Logan, and Providence. These are great courses for learning disc golf and working on your game.
Amalga Sugar Park – The Sugar Park Disc Golf course is a six hole course that plays through a small park in Amalga. This course plays near/over playgrounds, baseball, and soccer fields. Fortunately, this park is rarely used, so you are usually able to play your full round of disc golf in Amalga.
Hyrum Salt Hollow Park – Salt Hollow is a nice park in Hyrum with a large playground area, water feature and Splash Pad. The holes for this course are VERY short, but the park has lots of hilly terrain that allows for some elevation changes. This is a great course for beginners or practicing your short game.
Nibley Sunrise Meadows Park – Sunrise Meadows is a mostly wide open short disc golf course that plays through retention ponds. This park does not have many mature trees so can get very hot.
North Logan Elk Ridge Park – The Elk Ridge Park disc golf course has 9 holes and plays around baseball and soccer fields. Because of the business of the park, you may not be able to play all the holes in afternoon and evening hours.
Providence Von Baer Park – This is a favorite local course where many of us learned to play disc golf. While most of the holes are short, this is a very challenging course that will easily frustrate beginners. The Blind Gulley Disc golf course has 9 baskets but 18 tee pads to create an 18 hole disc golf course.
Ridgeline High School – Ridgeline High School in Millville has a fun nine hole disc golf course with some short holes, some long holes, and a couple ridiculously short holes. This course is great for beginners and is conveniently located on both Ridgeview High School grounds as well as Nibley City property.
Smithfield Heritage Park – The Heritage Park disc golf course in Smithfield has 4 holes (plus a practice basket) in Heritage Park and 5 holes in Forrester Acres park that play around the West Baseball field. This is a challenging nine hole course with technical lines and lots of OB.
Part Time Course
Logan Fairgrounds – Unfortunately, disc golf at the Cache County Fairgrounds was so successful, it made it difficult for the maintenance crew to get their work done with all the disc golfers throwing discs around. With the construction of the new building they decided to reduce the Fairgrounds course from 21 permanent holes to 9 temporary holes, that are only open during the winter from October – March. Perhaps one day we can get a permanent 18 hole course at the Fairgrounds again. Prior to its reduction, the Fairgrounds was arguably one of the most enjoyable disc golf courses in Utah.
Cherry Peak – Cherry Peak Ski Resort has a one of the kind down hill disc golf course. To play it, you need to get a ride to the top of the mountain. The best way to play is to pay for a ski lift ride on Saturday’s when they have the lift running.
Sherwood Hills Golf Course — Unfortunately, the owners of Sherwood Hills decided not to open the golf course this year, which also means that the disc golf course is also not accessible to the public. The golf course and hotel are currently for sale. We’re hoping a new owner will buy the property soon that will want to embrace disc golf. If that happens, Sherwood Hills is a world class course with serious tournament potential. The course is very long with a variety of wooded and open shots. It includes par 3, 4, and 5 holes.
Beaver Mountain will be installing a disc golf course in 2020. They already have the baskets purchased but got distracted with mountain biking as this summers projects.
