UPI Daredevil Disc Golf Course

Founded in 2018, the original 9-hole disc golf course was designed in the wooded area behind UPI. The entrance was at the northeastern corner of UPI 18. The baskets were supplied by OCUA's official disc partner, Daredevil Discs, and the course was put together by local disc golf player, Geoff Rowland. The course was playable, but could not keep up with Mother Nature. Over time, the growth of vegetation was too much and the course fell into disarray. In 2020, the baskets were moved inside the perimiter of UPI and a new 18-hole course was designed with minimal maintenance in mind.

Where to buy disc golf discs? Daredevil Discs is a local Ottawa company that has a wide selection of drivers, midranges, and putters.

Disc Golf is a great sport for Ultimate players and can be played with a regular 175 gram disc. If members are interested in playing the sport with 'disc golf discs', here are some helpful links and tips.
