 10 Places to Try Disc Golf

This inexpensive sport can be played in parks throughout the regionCorinne Minard Disc golf has never been so popular, and it’s easy to see why. It’s inexpensive, can be played with small groups and is enjoyed by both children and adults. Courses can be found in parks throughout Greater Cincinnati, including our state and county parks.

Great Parks of Hamilton County has four parks with their own disc golf courses. Embshoff Woods, 4050 Paul Road, Cincinnati, and Miami Whitewater Forest, 9001 Mt. Hope Road, Harrison, both have nine-hole courses while Winton Woods, 10245 Winton Road, Springfield Township, and Woodland Mound, 8250 Old Kellogg Road, Cincinnati, have 18-hole courses.
