Duluth Disc Golf

I heard about a disc golf course in Lincoln Park. Where is it located?

Also, are there other courses around that I am not aware of? I know of Mont du Lac, and the three located by the colleges (LSC, Scholastica, UMD). I am missing any others?

I'm pretty sure there isn't a disc golf course in Lincoln Park, or anywhere in the West End neighborhood, but the Miller Creek course by Lake Superior College is very close to Lincoln Park and shares the same creek as the park does, so someone might have referred to that one as the "Lincoln Park" course and confused you. Here's a link to a post about a disc golf course in Superior. The post references other disc golf courses in town. The ones you didn't mention in your post are the Carlton Disc Golf Sanctuary (which has a barely active Facebook page) and the course in the park by Morgan Park’s Good Fellowship Center (a map and rules can be found on morgan-park.net/golf.htm).

The Lincoln Park course is there, it's just not very defined. There are none of the chain baskets to target. However, if you look around people have put tape and things around trees and you must throw the disc and hit the tree between the two markers. When I was photographing for my Virtual Northland website there were two groups of people playing.

I stand corrected.

That's pretty much it in the area as public courses go. Superior, Miller, UMD, CSS (if you can call that a course), Mont du lac, Morgan Park, and Lincoln (if you can call that a course). There are three private ones that are around but two of them are extremely sensitive to strangers playing. The best way to find out about all the courses in the area is to play the handicap league at Mont du Lac. I personally think that, as far as disc golf in the area goes, you can not get any better than the two options at Mont du Lac. It's not for beginners but advanced beginners can enjoy the Eagles Peak course and intermediate and up can enjoy the the Cedar forest course. Outside of Highbridge, 75 miles away (also created by the guy that did Mont du Lac), it's the best disc golf around.

The course in Carlton is near the football field. It's not very busy, so it must be a good course to learn on.

The baskets have gone in at Lincoln Park. I heard this summer it was approved, but didn't think it would happen so fast. The T-Pads are spray painted on the ground, sidewalk and road. Basket #3 seems to be missing. We tried it out this last Monday, and for a 9-Hole in the city, it's not bad at all. For the missing hole 3, we just played a little off the side of Basket 2 and shot for Basket 7. Keeps you moving smooth.
