Here is a brief overview of the courses.

Bill Frederick Park

3401 S Hiawassee Rd, Orlando, FL 32835

The City of Orlando’s premier park covers 183 acres and has three 18-hole disc golf courses – all of which will be used in the event. The combination of the three courses provides players with a reason to use every type of shot in their bag.


One of the oldest courses in Florida dating back to late 1986, the Original course is a mostly flat and lightly wooded open course with varied terrain and small rolling hills that play along Turkey Lake. Afternoon winds may introduce more of a challenge on a number of the picturesque holes, especially on hole 7 where a small hill combined with an elevated basket can get your nerves up. The first 9 holes of this course will be where the final round is played for all divisions.


Added to the park in 2006, the T-2 course from the blue tees is the most challenging layout in the park playing over 6,700 feet/2040 meters with a par of 60. Of special notes are holes 1 & 6 which require multiple placements shots to negotiate the hole. Hole 16 requires a water carry of 300 feet/91 meters if you want a birdie run.

The Woods

Added permanently to the park in 2017, The Woods is a great compliment to the other two courses on site. To successfully navigate The Woods, you’ll need to execute some tight woods shots. The course is a mix of light and heavily wooded fairways, a few open holes and one partial water hazard. You’ll even find some elevation – well, for the flat sandbar that is Florida.

Barnett Park

4801 W. Colonial Dr. Orlando, FL 32808

Barnett Park is home to two of this year’s courses, the North course and the recently redesigned Parkside course.


Parkside went through a major redesign last year and has evolved into a more challenging course than the initial 1989 install. Although generally a flat course, Parkside offers mature trees and plenty of water to keep things interesting. From the blue tee, the signature hole 18 demands players to navigate two water carries on the way to a landing area.


With mild elevation, the North course winds its way through medium dense wooded areas to create a challenging track with a variety of obstacles, terrain, and water hazards. The course finishes with an island hole that requires your disc to come to rest on the island to be in play.

River City Nature Park

200 Barwick Rd, DeBary, FL 32713

Located just off the St. John’s River north of Orlando, River City Nature Park is situated in a passive park that is centered around nature walks and disc golf.


The Alpha course takes great advantage of the mildly wooded pine, oak and palm tree areas of the park and incorporates a raised basket or two. The par four hole 7 plays long with a flagged lake near the pin, and hole 9 has a hanging basket strategically placed under a picturesque tree.


The Barwick course is solid mix of open and mild to heavily wooded holes. A few strategically placed OB’s will make you think, especially on hole 15 where an island green forces a risk/reward decision.

Lake Hiawatha Preserve

450 12th St Clermont, FL 34711 United States

The Lake Hiawatha Preserve course is set in a gorgeous preserve on a lake with huge mature oaks throughout. These oaks provide a beautiful canopy for a very challenging course. When set in its longest configuration the course measures more than 9000 feet/2740 meters in length.

Palmetto Point Park

1651 Getford Rd, Eustis, FL 32726

Green Gauntlet

The Green Gauntlet at Palmetto Point Park will replace the MetroWest temp course that was originally scheduled. It's a bit of a drive but well worth the experience. Playing as a par 67, you’ll appreciate that a majority of the holes are shaded in the woods. But that will also require you hit hit your lines and execute some placement shots to be successful.
