The nation’s fastest-growing participation sport is taking flight in Lake County as novice and experienced players alike are giving disc golf a spin. The game is similar to golf, except participants attempt to get a disc into a metal basket on a five-foot tall pole in as few throws as possible. The sweet sound of plastic disc on metal chain means participants have completed a hole and can move to the next one.
The public can enjoy the following disc golf courses in Lake County:
- Lakehawk Landing at Lake-Sumter State College in Leesburg.
- Palmetto Trails in Eustis.
- Champions Pointe DGC at Lake Hiawatha Preserve in Clermont.
- Nature Park DGC in Mount Dora.
- Lincoln Park in Mount Dora.
