To find the Top Disc Golf Small Towns – U.S.A., we analyzed 6,000 towns with populations under 50,000 to see which ones had the best combination of disc golf course quantity and quality. The data on the number of courses and their quality all came from UDisc, which has the most comprehensive disc golf course directory available and nearly two million ratings of the courses listed there thanks to disc golfers using UDisc.
Once we had our results, we contacted locals from the top five towns on the list to help us create disc golf travel guides for each location. Along with each town's disc golf history and standout courses, these guides fill you in on good places to grab a bite to eat, relax with a cold beverage, and enjoy non-disc golf activities that could be great options when taking a break from disc golf or enjoying time with non-disc golfing friends and family.
