Combine the fun of throwing a flying disc with the challenge of golf, and you get disc golf. This activity is fun for participants of almost any age and ability. Simply throw your disc toward the designated basket. Like golf, you get one point for each throw and the lowest score wins.
Disc golf is a perfect way to spend a sunny afternoon, and Three Rivers has some of the best venues in the metro area. Courses at Bryant Lake Regional Park, Elm Creek Park Reserve and Hyland Hills Ski Area offer scenic views and challenging holes. In addition to the 18 and nine-hole courses which require a pass to play, Lake Minnetonka Regional Park and Hyland Lake Park Reserve also offer three-hole practice areas which do not require a pass.
Check course pages for hours.

Other Things To Do
Three Rivers operates 63 holes of golf with driving ranges across the Twin Cities metro area. With scenic courses designed to challenge all levels of ability, you won't have to drive far to get your fix. Come practice your swing or round up a foursome and play a friendly round at one of our six locations:
If you like sledding, you’ll love snow tubing at the Winter Recreation Area at Elm Creek. Ride a moving sidewalk up a hill 10 stories high and then soar back down on a specially designed inner tube. Once you get to the bottom, do it all over again.
New this season: Advance online reservations are required for tubing.
