Emmitsburg Disc Golf Course!
The 18-hole Emmitsburg disc golf course opened in October 2020 and consists of two tee pads at each hole: one amateur tee pad and one pro tee pad (*note: some tee pads are still being constructed). The course starts between the two baseball fields in the back of Myers Community Park and winds its way around the park into the wooded area. The course is free to use but discs need to be purchased from a local sporting goods store or online. The Town of Emmitsburg would like to thank FredRock Disc Golf for their work in designing and constructing the Emmitsburg Disc Golf Course. The course map and rules are below.
Disc golf is a sport that can be played by children, elderly and people of all ages. The goal of the game is to play each hole in the fewest amount of throws as possible.
