Disc golf is a sport that has rapidly grown in popularity over the last few years.
The City of Mississauga has already introduced disc golf courses to a number of public parks, including Dellwood Park and Spruce Park, and is now in the process of installing a new course at Lake Aquitaine Park.
Designed for beginners and families, the new disc golf course at Lake Aquitaine Park will be a 4-hole course. This outdoor course will provide new players with the opportunity to learn the sport, while giving more experienced players the space to improve their skills.
Safety, community inclusion and fun have been important priorities in the course design. The game area will be able to accommodate multiple players at a time, while allowing for physical distancing during play.
Construction will be completed in 2022.
Frequently asked questions
Disc golf is similar to traditional golf, but instead of golf clubs and balls, players use discs and aim at disc golf baskets (or “holes”). The disc golf basket is comprised of a pole that extends up from the ground with chains and a metal basket for the discs to land in.
How to play
To complete each hole, players must throw their disc from a designated tee area and land it in the basket. The goal is to get through each hole of the course with the fewest number of throws.
This activity can be played individually and in groups, where the winner is the player who completes the course with the lowest total number of throws.
Construction of the disc golf course is expected to be completed in 2022.
