My wife and I recently took a trip with some friends to the mountains of Eastern Tennessee for some white water rafting down the Ocoee River. We stayed in a log cabin not too far from the river at the White Water Express Outpost. It was a fantastic trip and one of the things they had at the campground was a disc golf course. During some free time, we went to the Outpost office and were able to rent some discs for free and play a little round of disc golf. That was all it took and now I am "hooked".
When we got back to Fuquay Varina, I went on line to take a look to see if there were any local disc golf courses around the Raleigh area. Was I surprised to find out that there are 8 different courses in Wake County alone.
There are 2 courses available inside the beltline of Raleigh at NC States Centennial Campus and at Kentwood. In north Raleigh, you can play Cedar Hills Rotary Park or in East Raleigh at East Wake Middle School.
Do you live in the souther part of Wake County? No worries because there is plenty of opportunity in that area as well. Middle Creek High School in Apex offers a fantastic 18 hole course. There is also a tricky course at Buckhorn Harris Lake County Park.
Disc golf is a great sport to get outside and enjoy mother nature, get a little exercise, and test your abilities. Depending on your rate of play, you can play 18 holes in less than 1.5 hours. The equipment to play is a lot less than that of traditionaly golf. All you need is 1-2 discs to get started at a price of approx. $10 a disc.
Get out there and have some fun. Hope to see you on the courses of Wake County.
