Disc golf is becoming extremely popular in America. In Austin, you’ll find over 20 courses to play on. It’s an easy sport to learn, and you don’t need expensive equipment. For around $20, you can get several discs; you can pick up a few used ones at Play It Again Sports. There are several courses just a short drive from our Austin apartments. Check out this recent feature about disc golf in Austin.

Zilker Park

According to Austin’s official website, Zilker Park is “Austin’s most-loved park.” The 358-acre park is home to the famous Barton Springs Pool, but there are tons of other reasons to visit. The 18-hole disc golf course is great for beginners since it’s flat and mostly open. The majority of holes are less than 300 feet. You’ll want to park in the lot by the Polo Picnic Area. If you have a bike, it’s only a seven-minute ride from Cole Apartments.

Other park features include the botanical gardens, volleyball courts, picnic areas, and the Umlauf Sculpture Garden. Before you head home, cool off with a snow cone at Sno-Beach.  

Roy G. Guerrero

The 18-hole course at Roy G. Guerrero Park is beautiful and challenging. Most holes have two tees: one for amateurs and the other for professionals. After your game, explore the trails which will take you for a nice walk past Lady Bird Lake and the Colorado River. Note that the closest place to park is near the baseball fields.

On your way home, grab something to eat at Sawyer & Co. such as Jambalaya or shrimp and grits. Curbside pick up and delivery are available, but make sure you pick the correct menu as they are different. On Tuesdays, they have crawfish boils; you can order by Sunday if you’d prefer to pick up and take it home.

Mary Moore Searight Metro Park

Searight Park is about 20 minutes from Cole Apartments. The disc golf course is a mixture of flat and hilly with fairways cleared out of the cedar trees. The park also has volleyball, basketball, and trails. Bring your four-legged friend to run free at the off-leash trail area. This is also a popular park for fishing.

Celebrate your win with tacos from one of our favorite local spots. Curbside pick up is available from most locations, or have Door Dash deliver to you at the park, so you don’t have to interrupt your fun.
