7 Disc Golf Courses You Can Play Today in Greater Kalamazoo, Michigan

Posted on May 21st, 2020

The greater Kalamazoo area is home to an active and passionate disc golf community, with a wide variety of courses ranging from beginner-friendly to world championship caliber!

With things in the area slowly starting to open up again, disc golf certainly meets the requirements of a sport you can enjoy, while still maintaining a 6 foot distance from others.

Whether you’re practically a pro or just looking to try something new, we put a list together of disc golf courses in the area that are ready to welcome you with open arms.


Oshtemo Township Park



Oshtemo Township Park is one of Michigan’s best courses. It is a well-balanced course that requires accurate drives to score well. You can find a colored map of the park here  and a score sheet here.

This 70-acre park features a playground, a paved loop trail, accessible restrooms, two picnic pavilions, tennis, pickleball, and basketball courts and a wiffleball field.

The forested area of the park, with rolling hills and an overlook deck, features a network of unpaved walking trails and is popular for hiking.





Vicksburg Recreation Area – leagues resuming on Monday



Located north of the village, the Recreation Area is home to an 18 hole disc golf course, is about 8,000 feet in length, and has extensive trails that overlook ponds, marsh, and wooded areas perfect for appreciating nature. The park also offers substantial parking, picnic area, and large fields for outdoor activities.





Orangeville Disc Golf Course (Shelbyville)



This course is located at St. Francis Church in Orangeville and is sometimes referred to Disc Golf Heaven. It’s mostly flat, moderately wooded, 50% straight and open holes, 50% technically difficult holes. There are also 3 pin locations on all of the holes.




Meyer Broadway Park (Three Rivers)



Located one mile west of US131 on Broadway in Three Rivers, this amazing 160 acre park is home to a variety of recreation types and offers something for everyone!

Most importantly, Meyer Broadway Park is home to a 36- hole world-class disc golf course. This course can be challenging from the long tees, featuring rolling hills and woods, and the short tees are fun for any skill level.





Irving Park (Battle Creek)



Irving Park offers a unique mix of amenities including play structures, hard surface walking paths, disc golf, and horseshoes.  The park is scenic in nature with its Takaski Japanese Garden. The 18-hole course plays around paths, into the woods and around the Irving Park pond.




Leila Arboretum (Battle Creek)



Leila Arboretum is a horticulturist dream come true; home to the Leila Arboretum Society’s Children’s Garden, Kingman Museum and of course, a championship disc golf course! Outside of the uniqueness of the park, (this course takes you to areas deemed the “Fantasy Forest”), some might say that this is one of the most difficult courses they’ve ever played. One review of the courses states, “If you like ups, downs, sideways, basically anything but flat golf – this course will be right up your alley.”  You can download a park map here.



Dexter Lake Church (Battle Creek)



This course is just 9 short holes, mostly flat and lightly wooded for half of the course. The fairways cross a few roads so be aware.
