Disc golf comes to Lenexa.
Two brand new disc golf courses opened at Lenexa’s Black Hoof Park in early April and are set to be the premier destinations for disc golf in KC. One course is a championship-level eighteen-hole timber course, and the other is a family-friendly nine-hole course meant to provide fun for people of all ages. Disc golf is similar to traditional golf: There’s a tee box and a hole—in disc golf’s case, a basket—and the objective is to get the disc in the hole in the fewest number of tries or throws. Whoever has the fewest throws at the end of the round wins. This sport has gained popularity in the last two decades because it can be both a laid-back game with friends and family and a competitive physical sport for more experienced players. The new Lenexa course provides both. The championship-level, ten-thousand-foot-long eighteen-hole course at Black Hoof Park expands across eighty acres of rugged terrain and includes multiple teepads and basket locations, which offer course variations for players. The smaller nine-hole course is shorter and more accessible to families and beginners.
GO: Disc golf courses at Black Hoof Park, 9053 Monticello Road, Lenexa. Park hours 5 am to 11 pm daily.
