Disc Golf Course

Purdue Fort Wayne Branded Disk Golf Basket

Operating Hours: Dawn to dusk

Operating Season: Year-round, weather dependent (closed during cross country events)

Free and open to the public

Disc golf is played like traditional golf, but with disc golf discs instead of balls and clubs. One throw (stroke) is counted each time the disc is thrown and when a penalty is incurred. The goal is to play each hole in the fewest strokes possible. The player with the lowest total strokes for the entire course wins.

The 18-hole Purdue Fort Wayne course, designed by alumnus Brian Spaulding, B.S.’08, and professional disc golfer Brian Miller, highlights the natural beauty of the wooded property and offers options for multiple skill levels. The standard course layout is played on the black teepads, while the gold teepads are recommend for advanced skill levels. Basket positions will periodically change between “A” and “B” (advanced) locations. Current locations are marked on each tee sign; view the Disc Golf Course Map

The course was made possible through funding from the Student Government Association, along with installation support from the Facilities Management Ground Operations staff and members of the local disc golf community.
