There’s no doubt we’ve got quite a few options when it comes to getting outside and enjoying some recreation in Tampa. From beaches to city parks, golf courses, and more, there’s no shortage of things to do when it comes to getting out and getting active in this city of ours.
Disc golf is definitely a unique option in this category. Never heard of it? The name pretty much explains it all; it’s like golf, but with discs (or, frisbees as most probably know them) and instead of holes there are chain-linked baskets on poles you’ve got to hit to effectively finish the hole.
Some people purchase and use different sized discs kind of like drivers, irons, and putters in golf, but a nice, durable frisbee will do you just fine if you just want to get out to a course and see what it’s all about.
The Limona Disc Golf Course in Brandon is a 9-hole course perfect for first-time disc golfers. As the first public disc golf course in Hillsborough County, the Limona course has a ton of rolling hills and big trees perfect for playing in the shade. Admission is completely FREE to the course too, so even if you’re not feeling it there’s no substantial loss to you.
Up in North Tampa there’s the Lutz Executive Disc Golf Course. This 18-hole course boasts undulating mounds and a few water hazards perfect for a challenging round of disc golf. Bring your own or purchase some discs at their pro shop. An 18-hole round is $6 per person.
USF also has a disc golf course at their Riverfront park with a scenic, challenging 18 holes, but you’ve got to have a student ID, or be friends with a student, to enter.
