Clear skies and sunny days are among us which means it’s time to get your discs, rally your friends, and hit the courses in Mt. Pleasant! As it becomes one of the fastest-growing sports in the United States, disc golf has made itself known in the Mt. Pleasant area. Similar to traditional golf, the objective is to earn the lowest score by making the fewest shots at their target. Start at the tee box, aim for the basket, and try to stay in fairway – that’s it!
Where to Meet
Deerfield Nature Park, located just off of M-20 in Mt. Pleasant, has two state-of-the-art disc golf courses. Both the Deerfield and Wildwood are Class A courses complete with 18 holes – offering a variety of obstacles and new challenges. Here you can expect elevation changes, elevated tees, and a water crossing!
For only a $6 daily pass, the public has access to not only both disc golf courses, but everything else the Deerfield Nature Park has to offer. On its 591 acres along the Chippewa River, you can find hiking trails, picnic areas, bridges, and more! Make an entire day out of your disc-golfing experience.
