Algonquin Disc Golf

logo2-copy.jpg Welcome to Algonquin Disc Golf the place to find out what’s flying in South River, Ontario, Canada.

Tom Thomson Park, located on a picturesque section of the South River, has been the home of the Algonquin Disc Golf Course, a Championship 18-hole disc golf course since 2003.  The South River Disc Golf Club invites you to drop in for a casual round or gun for a championship in on one of our many events.  Either way surf through this site to get all the info you need!

The Algonquin Disc Golf Course was designed by Dušan Nedelko of South
River.  It was made possible by the generous financial support of local businesses and a grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation.  Set on a very picturesque section of the South River, it consists of short technicals, some longer holes with a mix of mowed fairways, water and forest hazards and colourful local characters.  Numerous holes use the river proximity, with signature Hole #3 playing right over the water to the infamous ‘hanging basket’.  For the most part the course is not very busy and most players find themselves with it all to themselves…until tournament day, when upwards of 75 players are out tossing plastic so play smart & safe.  A few holes do have overlapping fairways so always make sure other players are aware.  Also please remember that this is a PUBLIC PARK…be courteous to other park users and give them the right of way…avoid accidents!

BE COURTEOUS, DON’T LITTER.  Help us keep the park clean!

    Hey Dusan, don’t you think it’s a little bit Freudian with the pretending to be your mom and all. I’m no therapist however. Say hi to Hanna from me and the fam.

    Well, it seems that we may finally be finished with winter. There is still a little bit of snow, but that should be gone by the end of the week…YEAH!!! Please be advised that the ice near Holes 1-5 and 18 is NOT safe to walk on these days, so keep your plastic dry. Things are shaping up to present a great disc golf season, not just here in South River, but a new disc golf community is emerging nearby. Just 30-45 minutes south of us, in Huntsville, there’s is now a full 18 hole disc golf course complete with DGA-MachIII baskets now…awesome. I hope to post course maps and info for this course in the future so stay tuned, but in the meantime you can see what’s going on and find out more about Huntsville here: http://www.discgolfontario.com/forum/viewboard.php?BoardID=40
    This course is a ton of fun to play and is currently designed to help introduce newer players to the game, but will give seasoned pros a fun challenge too. It looks like the course is taking off! There were 2 aces (a hole-in-one) in two days this week alone and they may not be done yet! I have the honour of hitting the first ace ever on this course, #8 from the long tee off. So they are planning to have an organized ‘club’ with a weekly gathering on Sundays. With South River Disc Golf Club Tuesdays set to begin May 19th, there’s plenty of chances for golfers to get together and play in northern Ontario. Come on out folks, lots of great golf to play…and it’s only growing!
    Here’s the address for the South River disc golf forums:

    So, I’m off to the South River course soon…hopefully I’ll get my first Algonquin Ace today! When I do, you’ll hear about it here : )
