A Personal Message
I am completely thrilled that you are coming out to play the course here at West Winds Disc Golf and I hope you have a great time.
I, Joseph Booth, am not the property owner of this course.
All of us have to respect the gift that the property owner has bestowed upon us to use his 140 acres to create an amazing Disc Golf experience.
Please do not come out if you are not able to respect the rules. There are many other courses in the area and you can certainly have a wonderful time at those locations too.
West Winds Disc Golf is built in a family friendly neighborhood and one of the primary missions of the course is to Grow Disc Golf. We plan to have many juniors on the course, increase the presence of women players, encourage people of all ethnic, religious, political, racial, sexual orientation and to be an inclusive environment for all who want to play.
You will be asked to leave the course if you choose to behave against the Disc Golfers Code, the expectations we have of all players and this personal request I am making of you.
Thank you for understanding.
Bring Water and Bring Water
The 18 holes on the East Course are easily a two-three mile walk and up to six miles if you are crisscrossing across fairways.
The course has a lot of elevation change. You need water. Don’t arrive without it. Seriously, bring water with you. An umbrella for shade is recommended too.
Until the restaurant opens there are no restrooms at the course.
Do yourself a huge favor. Make a quick stop at one of the many businesses that have public restrooms prior to coming out to the course.
Hours of Operation
We are open daily from Sunrise to Sunset. No holiday closings at this time.
Donate $4-$6 dollars to Play. Please donate before your round.
The easiest way to use PayPal is through an app on your smartphone. We have QR codes on the tee signs at hole 1 and hole 18. Just point and give.
Your donation is 100% used to make West Winds Disc Golf better. Thank you so very much.

We are also an Infinite Disc affiliate. Clicking on links on our site to go to Infinite Discs before you buy helps us get 5-8% on sales. All money goes back into the course.
Expectations for Player Conduct
Please respect the property boundaries and if your disc goes into someone’s backyard you will be considered trespassing if you do not get permission to enter their yard.
The vast majority of the neighbors are extremely friendly and nice. You probably won’t run into much hassle at all.
Please refrain from use of inappropriate adult only language around the many kids who play in the backyards of most homes that line the course.
Cigarette butts are trash. Please take them and any other trash with you.
The property owner has not approved alcohol consumption on the course at this time. Please do not drink alcohol on the property until it is approved by the property owner. He is in the process of obtaining a liquor license. He is the one who makes this course possible – please be respectful of that.
We all have to be the best representation of the PDGA’s Disc Golfers Code and be ambassadors of the sport. Many of the people in the neighborhood have never seen disc golf before. Please be kind and patient if they ask about disc golf.
You can park anywhere there is an open spot. Please allow room between cars during the Coronavirus pandemic – as a courtesy to others.
Be prepared to walk about 2-3 miles and up to 6 miles if you are crisscrossing the fairways.

Share With Other Disc Golf Fans
It would be appreciated if you can share with other players that we are open and ready to play. Please send them the link to this page.
The course is very wide open right now. For people who may not want to give it a shot because of sticker bushes, ticks, creepy crawlies, poison ivy, snakes, monsters and the boogie man. This course is very beginner friendly but long.
For the big arms out there. You can UNLEASH out here and get full flight very easily.
I’m looking forward to you coming out to play very soon.
Let’s do this #discgolf fans!
