Come try disc golf at Longford Park Disc Golf Course.

Our friendly volunteers will loan you a disc and teach you the basics. We love to see the community enjoying our beautiful and free course in Longford Park, so we run open days to introduce the sport. Everyone is welcome, no matter what age or ability. See you there!

What is Disc Golf?

Disc golf is similar to regular golf except that it’s played with a Frisbee disc. Players throw the Frisbee as close as possible to the basket, then throw again from where the Frisbee lands, trying to get it into the basket in the fewest number of throws. Chains on the basket help catch the Frisbee.

Manchester Disc Golf is a community group formed to bring Disc Golf to Longford Park.  The newly developed 18-hole course is now open for both new and experienced disc golfers and is free to use. If you’d like to give it a try why not drop down during one of the open days where a team of volunteers will be there to show you how to play Disc Golf.  You don’t need any equipment or experience (though if it has been raining it is advised that you wear appropriate waterproof footwear). They can provide you with discs to borrow or to buy.

If it’s been raining we recommend wearing wellies or boots, the course can get quite wet in places.

Club Meets

During the summer our friendly club meets twice a week to play a couple of social rounds; Wednesday evenings at around 6pm, and Sunday mornings around 10am. Everyone is welcome to join us so please pop down and say hello. If you don’t own your own discs at these times we can provide you with free loan discs so you can try out disc golf too!
The best way to find out when people are playing and stay in touch with our regular disc golfers is to join the Manchester Disc Golf Players facebook group.
