Since 2018, we've revealed the most popular disc golf courses in both the U.S. and Europe. Last year, we included Canada in the mix.

But this is the biggest and most comprehensive Most Popular Disc Golf Courses post to date. It marks the first time we've looked at stats for every disc golfing country, the first time we've included play counts (previously we just showed the ranking), and the first time we've revealed the top five most popular courses in any place rather than just the number one.

Along with all that, you can also find a list of the top 10 most popular courses in the world regardless of country following the individual country tables.

There are a few things you should know before you dig into the grand buffet of figures we've prepared for you, though.

How Many Countries Have Disc Golf?

Just under 80 countries recorded rounds of disc golf in 2021.

In this post, we show you the most popular courses in every country that had at least one permanent course with a minimum of 100 plays recorded with the UDisc app in 2021. That adds up to 52 countries in total.

Why "Most Popular" Isn't "Best"

While something being "popular" doesn't exclude it also being the "best," the two words are often used to mean very different things. For example, McDonald's is the world's most popular restaurant, but we doubt it's where many people have had the best meal of their lives.

Here, "most popular" means "most played."

In the case of disc golf courses, a certain amount of quality is associated with popularity as Josh Woods of the blog Parked discussed in a guest post for us back in 2019 called "Are 'Popular' Courses 'Good' Courses?". Still, location, length, and difficulty also affect how many people play a course regularly. Often, the courses that fit into the most populated areas tend to be shorter and aimed at recreational and intermediate players (who make up the majority of disc golfers), and while those sorts of courses don't often reach the upper echelons in overall ratings, they get played a lot.

Good to Know Before You Read the Stats

Here are some things you might like to know about before diving into the tables you'll find later on.

On Where the Stats Came From and Their Meanings

  • Plays equal the number of rounds recorded in 2021 on a course in the UDisc app, the #1 app for disc golfers. Not every round of disc golf is recorded in UDisc, but research conducted in 2020 suggested that roughly one out of every five rounds is.
  • Popularity Grade is a quick and interesting way to compare every course's play total with that of the world's most popular disc golf course in 2021. If you've ever had a test graded on a curve, it's pretty much the same thing. The course with the most plays in the world set the bar and got a 100. The other courses' "grades" are based on what percentage their play counts are of the highest plays total. For example, if a course has a Popularity Grade of 20, it means it had 20% of the plays that the world's most popular course did in 2021.

On Which Countries and Courses Were Included/Excluded

  • Countries had to have at least one disc golf course with 100 plays in 2021 to be included.
  • Though we hope people residing in these countries will enjoy this data, we're also aware travelers could become interested in certain courses because of it. Therefore, we did our best to assure the courses listed for each country were something travelers could enjoy. That means we excluded courses that only existed for special events, for which bringing your own basket to a park is necessary, and other similar things. The caveat to this caveat is that we did include some private courses where invites or military ID are needed. We highly encourage you to check the details of any course you'd like to visit on UDisc Courses before planning a trip.
  • If a country had at least one course with 100 plays, we included all viable courses in its table that had at least 10 plays.

Why Doesn't Every Country's Table Have Five Courses?

  • Some countries had a course with 100 or more plays but not five or more viable courses.

The Åland Islands' Most Popular Disc Golf Courses: 2021

Okay, so we know "Å" isn't really "A" (it's actually after Z in the Swedish alphabet), but we're willing to bend the rules to kick this list off with a bang.

The Åland Islands are a nation of under 30,000 and are technically a part of Finland, but they have their own independent government. The islands are also in the first few years of one of the most interesting disc golf experiments ever undertaken: Opening 16 courses across a relatively small amount of land to make their nation an international disc golf tourism destination. Learn about how it's going (spoiler: pretty darn well) in our post "Tiny Islands' Big Bet On Disc Golf Tourism Paying Off."

We'd also like you to note again that this place has under 30,000 residents. The play totals on its top five courses are insane for plays-to-population ratio. Its top course had more plays in 2021 than, for example, the top course in Germany – a country with over 80 million residents.
