"Discus Golf" Top 5 Page for this destination Lexington Off The Beaten Path Tip by davecallahan

Lexington Off The Beaten Path: 18 reviews and 39 photos


Take a frisbee (you know, those plastic flying saucers) and an 18 "hole" golf course and what do you get..... DISCUS GOLF.

In Lexington, KY, in Veterans Park, they have set up eighteen fairways and 18 metal pillars with chains on top (these are the "holes"). Throw the frisbee as far as you can down the fairway. Go to the spot where it lands. Pick up the disk and throw it farther down the fairway. Repeat until you can see the "green" (the area where the metal pillar is). Throw the frisbee and try to hit the chains and make the disk land on the pillar platform. You just played one hole of Discus Golf. Now repeat 17 more times and you have had your daily workout.

I thought this was a great change from hitting the equipment room in the motel or walking around the motel parking lot.

To learn more about this game, see this website:

to get to Veterans Park:
I-75 exit 108, onto Man Of War Blvd (route 1425), go west 2 miles to Tates Creek Road, go south 2 or 3 streets on Tates Creek Road and see the park signs
