This beautiful disc golf course layout was conceived and installed in the summer of 2007 by Pat Farrell, of DiscConcepts. This pay-to-play course features significant distance from the blue tees (6805') , moderate elevation, and many high risk/reward situations. There is a reasonable mix of trees and open holes, as well as, balance between left, straight, and right turning holes.
The ability to rent a gas-powered golf cart allows players to focus all of their energy on throwing disc, and comes in handy given the moderate to significant elevation gain/loss on the course. This unique characteristic allows for as many rounds as your noodle-arm can handle.
Another unique characteristic of Fontana Disc Golf Course is the lodging adjacent to the course. Come for an overnight trip, and stay in the Lodge. Or, stay in a Garden room overlooking Hole 1. There are also a few cabins overlooking part of the course if this is more your speed. Just let our customer associate know what your interest is when making lodging inquiries.
Please be aware that there are many natural obstacles present on the course that players should be aware of. Rocks can be quite slippery, especially in and near the streambeds , so extra attention should be paid when navigating these areas. A fall from a large rock into a crevice could result in a twisted ankle, or worse.
Poison Ivy, Oak, and Sumac are present throughout the course, mainly in the rough. Shoes and socks pulled high are recommended for sensitive players and those without an eye for specific plants of the 3 and 5 leaf variety.
Roads line many fairways on the course. And even though they are usually lightly travelled, disc golfers need to pay attention to their surroundings when throwing to minimize any disc/car interaction.
