SIOUX CITY | Sertoma Park’s sprawling disc golf course is challenging enough to satisfy even the most obsessed disc golf fans, but also scenic and relaxing enough for the more casual player.
The course was established in 2001. It features nine baskets for players to practice their disc golfing skills. The course isn’t a walk in the park -- it features sharp curves, long distances and shots where the basket is not visible from the starting point.
Disc golf is a sport played much like traditional golf, except instead of a ball and clubs, players use a flying disc. The objective is to throw the disc into an elevated metal basket in the fewest number of throws. Players can purchase special weighted Frisbees that allow for a longer throw and more control.
The park is in the 4400 block of Singing Hills Boulevard.
Sertoma Park’s disc golf course was the first course established in the area and proved to be a popular draw. To add more course options to players and keep up with demand, Crystal Cove Park in South Sioux City established a disc golf course in 2011.
Disc golf is particularly popular among college students who refer to the sport as “frolfing,” short for Frisbee golfing.
