If you like to play disc golf, Waco is a great place to enjoy the sport, with four championship-level courses in the area.

In fact, Waco hosted the Texas State Disc Golf Championships in early April this year, getting placed in the rotation with Austin and Houston. Unfortunately, the spring rains that inundated the area made their presence known on the back half of the championships, making it less than ideal conditions for the competitors.

Courses of varying degrees of challenges can be found at Cameron Park (23 holes), Brazos Park East (18 holes, known as “The Beast”), Hewitt Park (18 holes) and Woodway Park (18 holes).

The Waco Disc Golf Association, which hosted the state event, has a great website with lots of information about the courses, along with printable scorecards.

A nine-hole course at Lorena Middle School is flat and open and is great for beginners.
