Disc Golf Course @ the VTCRC

The VTCRC's disc golf course is open to the community and located throughout phase I of the research park. If you have questions regarding the course, please email Dawn MyersConstruction by: Michael Whitley of Whitlow Construction. #VTCRCdiscgolf

LOST OR MISSING DISCS: Access to building rooftops is also not allowed at any time. Should you lose your disc, call or stop by the VTCRC Administrative Office (540-961-3600 or 1715 Pratt Drive) M-F 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. to file a report. The facilities staff will retrieve all reported discs every two weeks. You can stop by on Fridays to pick them up. Due to the high volume of lost or missing discs there will be no exceptions to this rule.

Please note if you should happen to lose any disc golf equipment in the lake as you are playing the course, unfortunately entry into the lake is not permitted at any time for your safety and ours. We will not be able to retrieve it.

Helpful disc branding tips:

Name and Contact Information: People who find your disc that are inclined to try to contact you personally can’t do that if you don’t put down some contact information. Both name and number should be large and clear on the top or bottom of the disc (not the inside rim). Make it big enough so it won’t get erased or obscured through wear-and-tear, it’s easy to read, and also discourages finders from becoming keepers (those who may be tempted to erase or write over it).

Stop by National Bank, 2280 Kraft Drive @ the VTCRC, for your complimentary disc golf score card anytime between Monday - Friday 9:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.

disc golf
Disc golf is played much like traditional golf. Instead of a ball and clubs, however, players use a flying disc, or Frisbee®. A golf disc is thrown from a tee area to a target which is the "hole". The hole can be one of a number of disc golf targets; the most common is called a Pole Hole® an elevated metal basket. As a player progresses down the fairway, he or she must make each consecutive throw from the spot where the previous throw has landed. The trees, shrubs and terrain changes located in and around the fairways provide challenging obstacles for the golfer. Finally, the "putt" lands in the basket and the hole is completed. Disc golf shares the same joys and frustrations of traditional golf. It is designed to be enjoyed by people of all ages!
