What is Disc Golf?
Disc golf is a flying disc sport at which players throw a disc at a target, using similar rules to regular golf. Golf discs are often heavier and more aerodynamic than frisbees, but any flying disc can be used to play this game. Player with the fewest total throws wins.
Anyone can play disc golf and courses are first-come-first-served (no reservations required). There is currently no fee to play on Arvada disc golf courses.
Arvada has two Disc Golf courses:
Johnny Roberts Disc Golf
Newly renovated in 2014, the Johnny Roberts Disc Golf Course is located in Memorial Park at 8001 West 59th Avenue behind City Hall and Police Headquarters.
Bird's Nest Disc Golf
Bird's Nest Disc Golf Course is located at 17925 West 64th Parkway just east of Highway 93 on 64th Avenue below the Arvada Blunn Reservoir.
Bird's Nest Disc Park is a 24-hole disc golf course designed by John Bird. Built on 40 acres of Jefferson County Open Space, the course features rolling pastures, tree-lined holes and some elevation change. Well established trails and spacious design make it a challenge for players of all ages and skill levels. Holes can range from 170 to over 700 feet in length.
