Fun "Fore" All!
The Tiffin Centre for Conservation offers a 9-hole disc golf course that winds around Papa, Mama and Baby Bear ponds and wetland: the Goldilocks Disc Golf Course!
The course starts at the parking lot by the picnic pavilion.
How to Play
Disc golf is played like traditional golf, but instead of clubs and balls players throw discs along a fairway to a basket. The player with the lowest number of throws wins. While you can play with a regular Frisbee, a heavier-weight disc made especially for the sport is preferred.
According to the Professional Disc Golf Association:
The object of the game of disc golf is to complete a course in the fewest throws of the disc. A course typically consists of nine or eighteen holes, each of which is a separate unit for scoring.
Play on each hole begins at the tee and ends at the target. After the player has thrown from the tee, each successive throw is made from where the previous throw came to rest. On completing a hole, the player proceeds to the teeing area of the next hole, until all holes have been played.
Disc golf courses are normally laid out in and around wooded areas with diverse terrain to provide natural obstacles to the flight of the disc. The course must not be altered by the player in any way to decrease the difficulty of a hole. Players must play the course as they find it and play the disc where it lies unless otherwise allowed by these rules.
The course is open to all visitors after 3 pm during the week and on the weekends. No tee times necessary, but you must bring your own disc. There is no extra fee to play the course – it is included with the $6.50 per vehicle per day parking fee (or your annual parking fee).
