Future First 18-Hole Disc Golf Course

Community Meeting Tonight


Montgomery Parks will hold a community meeting from 7-9 p.m. on Tuesday, June 6, at the National Capital Trolley Museum in Colesville to share information about a proposed disc golf course at Northwest Branch Recreational Park. The planned disc golf course at Northwest Branch Recreational Park will be the first 18-hole course in Montgomery Parks.

At the meeting, details will be provided about the project including how disc golf will activate the largely undeveloped park and complement the National Capital Trolley Museum.

Disc golf is similar to traditional golf, but instead of clubs and balls, players throw discs into baskets located at each hole.

The National Capital Trolley Museum is located at 1313 Bonifant Road in Colesville.

The future course will be designed as a fully accessible, multigenerational facility for people of all ages and skill levels. It will be able to host local and regional disc golf tournaments. The planned project will also include a group picnic shelter adjacent to the 18th hole.

For more information, visit the project page.

This is a Montgomery County, Maryland announcement.

this disc golf is really gaining in popularity. It's getting people outdoors and playing a game.

I've not heard of disc golf before.  However, I hadn't heard of Pickleball, until a couple years ago.

Hi Roy,

I think the 18-hole Discus will make an excellent addition to the community.

Disc golf, formerly known as frisbee golf, is a flying disc sport in which players throw a disc at a target; it is played using rules similar to golf.

Hello Roy and I guess this could catch on like picketball but not sure yet.  Does not take as many acres.
