The course opened in 2013 and features both amateur- and professional-level concrete tee pads and takes disc golfers through a variety of habitats including a restored oak savanna. Challenges include tallgrass prairie areas and a 30-foot tall glacial kame.
Par for the course is 61.
“Long holes to short stints, obstacles to open terrain — the Okoboji Gold Disc Golf Course is truly unique in northwest Iowa,” Roth said. “It’s also a wonderful walk in a beautiful, natural area full of blooming wildflowers and plenty of avian species throughout the summer.”
The Okoboji Gold Disc Golf Course is open dawn to dusk, seven days per week, in all seasons. It is free to use, but disc golfers do need to bring their own discs. Putters, mid-range discs and drivers are available for $10 each in the Nature Store at the Dickinson County Nature Center in Kenue Park.
