Thames Grove Disc Golf was founded in 2018 with the construction of a nine-hole course at the Thames Grove Conservation Area in Chatham.
For those unfamiliar with the Disc Golf sport, it shares many characteristics with traditional golf but the major difference is throwing specialized discs into a basket to advance. Navigating challenges on each hole, disc golfers spend their time surrounded by nature. Thames Grove Conservation Area is a beautiful place to play, with mature trees, walking trails, naturalized areas and the Thames River.
Disc Golf is accessible and provides an excellent way to get outside and be active. Thames Grove is a nine hole course and easily walkable with lots of shade available. Disc Golf also has the benefit of having low cost of entry with discs ranging between $10-$40 and no green fees. It also takes less time to play than traditional golf, with a full round of 18 holes being played in as little as an hour.
The inaugural Thames Grove Disc Golf league is set to start in the spring of 2021. It will consist of weekly league nights, where players can compete against each other for year-end prizes, as well as a weekend time slot for casual rounds and fun formats like doubles. All skill levels are encouraged to attend. Interested participants can join our Thames Grove Disc Golf Facebook page to get the latest updates on league events, meet other players, ask questions, arrange tee-times (no booking required) and locate lost discs.
All are welcome in the Thames Grove Disc Golf group.
