The City has completed installation of a nine-hole disc golf course at Maple Creek Park, beginning near the playground. Currently, the hole numbers are not install as they have been backordered. But the course is ready to play. Our course consists of nine holes, but can be made into an 18-hole course by reversing the play after completing the first nine holes. Players are expected to bring their own discs to play. The City has a limited number of loaner discs that can be provided on a request basis. Contact Amy Morris for availability at City Hall (770.963.7451).
Disc Golf (often referred to as frisbee golf) is a flying disc game, as well as a precision and accuracy sport, in which individual players throw a flying disc at a target. According to Paul Ince of the Professional Disc Golf Association, “the object of the game is to traverse a course from beginning to end in the fewest number of throws of the disc.“
The Maple Creek Disc Course is about 2,535 feet long for the front nine holes, and if players wish to complete a full 18-holes, the distance is nearly 1 mile.

Fences are out of bounds, and we would remind players that there are residences outside the fences. Please do not climb on the park fences in an attempt to retrieve discs lost out of bounds. Players are reminded that some of the course is inside the walking trails of the park. Users of the trails and players are expected to respect each other. Park hours and rules apply.
Disc Golf is played in about 40 countries around the world.
