Huntington Beach Disc Golf Course, a mix between Frisbee and Golf, is one of the first courses built in the United States. Located next door to the Equestrian Center and  across the street from Central Library in Central Park West,  this course begins on a hilltop near Golden West Street and takes players through shaded fields adjacent to the horse facility.   In existence for over 20 years in Huntington Beach, recent improvements such as a pro shop with disc sales & trade ins, soft drinks and a portable rest room are worth the minimal fee for all day play.  Two-round tournaments are held the first Saturday of each month. Action begins at 10 am, all divisions invited. 

This Frisbee golf course is considered by some to be the most beautiful disc golf course in Southern California. Overlooking Lake Huntington and only a few miles from the beach, there course consists of 5,400 feet of play space that can expand to 6,100 feet for tournament play. It is an 18 holes or basket course that starts on a hilltop adjacent to Golden West Street across from the new Huntington Beach Sports Complex and winds down dirt paths to partially-shaded fields. Designed by Ed Headrick, disc golf founder in 1977, it features a pro shop, porta-restroom, snacks and soft drinks. The pro shop sells and trades Innova discs primarily.

The rules of disc golf are quite similar to golf but instead of hitting a ball with a club, players throw their discs toward a target basket which is made of metal and looks somewhat like a short version of a circular clothes line. Each disc course has determines par and or number of throws to start from tee-off and end with your Frisbee in the basket. Putters and drivers are used in a similar manner to golf course play.

Two-round tournaments are held on the first Saturday of each month beginning at 10 a.m. All divisions are welcome. In addition, a weekly amateur league meets Wednesday afternoons. Huntington Beach Disc Golf Course is located in beautiful Huntington Central Park, 18381 Golden West Street (714) 425-9931. Course pro is Jerry.
Fee: $1-$2.50, under 16 years-old free
