Buckhorn Disc Golf Course

This course was established in 2001 in partnership with the Raleigh Area Disc League.  It is located off the Disc Golf/Fishing Pond gravel parking lot, which is the second lot on your right after you enter the park. Signs are posted at the cable entrance to the disc golf access area.

This course offers 18 challenging baskets, including water hazards and narrow fairways. There are also two additional practice baskets located at the beginning of the course to help you warm up putting or working on your long shot. Scorecards are available and found inside the mailbox near the wooden informational kiosk. Course closes 15 minutes before park closes. 

Special Thanks to Capital Area Disc League
