Disc Golf Course

Disc Golf is alive and well in Kure Beach. Reviews from professionals have been quite positive, but you don't have to be a pro to start enjoying the course right now! The vegetation and terrain are unique and pose quite a challenge to pros and novices, alike. But, not so much that it spoils the game!
For anyone unfamiliar with Disc Golf - it is a competitive sport very similar to ball golf. There are 18 holes with tee pads and disc catcher "baskets" as the holes. The sport is played with special discs for drives, approach shots, and putts. No need to spend a lot of money on course fees or equipment, a few discs are all you need to get started. The rules are virtually the same as ball golf with each shot counting as one and you aim to finish the course in the least number of throws as possible. Our course is lucky to have two formats for the 18 holes; the original layout and an alternate course layout where the tees or baskets are located differently. Check the course map near hole #1 for the current course layout.
Kure Beach boasts a very active disc golf community. The local Pleasure Island Disc Golf Club, The 458, holds monthly tag matches the first Sunday of every month. During this monthly event, the course layout changes from the original layout to the alternate or vice versa. PIDGC also holds a large yearly tournament and smaller events throughout the year. For more information about PIDGC or to become a member, check out their Facebook page here.
