What is Disc Golf ? Disc Golf is a great sport for all ages and abilities. The idea is simple, you have to throw a special Frisbee into a metal basket in as few shots as possible. Like golf, there are 18 holes, and we talk of drives and putts, birdies and bogies. However, the distances are shorter, at around 50 or 90 metres, depending on the course played, and there's no dress code!
Can anyone Play? Quarry Park has been meticulously designed to be fair to beginners and challenging to pros. We welcome everyone from family groups and tourists looking for a fun Frisbee activity, to professional level players from abroad. Disc golf is great for groups outings too - we have had stag parties, sports clubs, scout groups, office outings etc.
Is it a real sport? Absolutely! There are more than 3000 courses worldwide, and a professional tour worth over 1 million dollars. The course is owned, designed, and operated by long time enthusiast Derek Robins, the UK's most successful player. Derek still competes professionally in Europe and USA, but is often on hand to show visitors the basics before they play.
What is the course like? Quarry Park occupies 15 acres of Warwickshire's finest countryside adjacent to the river Avon. More than 1,500 trees have been planted to create a challenging course in a beautiful parkland type setting.
How long does it take? For people new to the game, I recommend playing the short course, which has 16 holes, averaging 50m in length, and a group of 4 new players may take around 90 minutes. The full course has 18 holes averaging 90m in length, including some risky holes by the river. A group of 4 may take around 2.5 hours to complete this course.
What should I bring? Well you don't need to bring a Frisbee, the fee includes the hire of one golf disc. Do choose your footwear and clothes carefully, as this is a countryside activity, and you may encounter nettles or boggy ground in places.
If travelling by car it is easiest to approach the course from the north side. From the junction of the A46 and A452 between Kenilworth and Leamington Spa, head south towards L/Spa. At the first roundabout take the second exit towards L/Spa, at the second roundabout take the third exit towards Old Milverton. After 600m turn right into the entrance to Quarry Park
By Public Transport
There is a bus stop about 600m from the course, on the A452 between Leamington and Kenilworth. There are frequent services between Leamington and Coventry, including X17 and 12 buses. Ask the driver to let you off at the stop closest to the Warwickshire Hospital. From the nearby roundabout take the exit to Old Milverton. The new access to the course is about 600m along on the right hand side.
