If you’re anything like us, you’re constantly daydreaming of more disc golf destinations to fit into your life.
That scenic highway landscape you just sped by? Its rolling hills would make for a nice disc golf course – there were definitely enough trees to carve out some fairways. Vacation coming up in the spring? There are probably four or five courses you can check off your bucket list if you really work at it. And that newly vacated downtown storefront? It’s the perfect spot for the hybrid disc golf store/coffee shop you and your league buddies have fantasized about, a high-traffic space where the sound of steaming lattes is complemented by the ringing of chains from the disc golf videos you’ll play for customers.
In short, you’re always looking for more disc golf. That’s why we think you’ll love UDisc Places.
Explore The World’s Best Disc Golf Destinations
UDisc Places is your one-stop shop to find the best disc golf courses, stores, leagues, and more.

When you first land on UDisc Places, you’ll be greeted with the top disc golf courses from UDisc's online directory within 50 miles of your location sorted by ranking. That means if you’re in Portland, Oregon, you’ll see Pier Park, and in Portland, Maine, you’ll get Sabattus Disc Golf. Even in scenes with no courses of note – like Portland, Texas – you’ll get something. In this case, it’s Live Oak Park in nearby Ingleside.
Keep scrolling and the fun continues. The top city in your country will show up on the left with its most starred photo (more on that later), and on the right is our personal favorite Places box: the Featured City. This one changes every time you come to Places, and we highly encourage refreshing the page as a way to pass the time. Just while writing this article we've landed on:

This list gives you the best disc golf cities within 350 miles, perfect for planning your next vacation.

Places Is Player-Powered
Like everything with UDisc, Places is driven by disc golfers. That means if you find a city and the featured photo isn’t so pretty, or you think a course or store should be ranked higher, the power is in your hands.
Want to change the lead photo for your town or course on UDisc Places? Here’s how:
- Open the UDisc app
- Find your preferred course
- Scroll down to the photos
- Tap on a photo to open it
- Tap on the “star” to favorite that photo
The more a photo is starred, the more likely it is that it will become the main photo on a Places page. So if you want to continue being creeped out by the most popular photo for Arrowhead Disc Golf Course in Louisville, Kentucky, do nothing. If you don’t want your disc golf with a side of nightmares, though, star some other photos!
The same goes for stores, courses, and everything else in Places: these destinations all thrive on your ratings and reviews, so help give the community the information it needs and keep everything up-to-date via the app.
Whether it's near, far, or somewhere in between, UDisc Places will have the answer. It’s everything you need for disc golf, all in one place.
