Goldenrod Disc Golf Course

6405 Irish Road
Davison, MI 48423 (Richfield Township)
Click here for driving directions.

If there’s one thing in this world more uniquely satisfying than getting out onto a golf course, it’s getting out onto a golf course with a flying disc and tossing it around. At least that’s the way we prefer it at Goldenrod Disc Golf Course. It’s a full-size, 18-basket course where you’ll never need expensive clubs and little white balls to have a good time. Sure, disc golf (like life) may seem a little odd. But it’s also a lot of fun. Best of all, it’s just around the corner. At your Genesee County Parks.

Open year round, 8:00 am - sunset.

  • Goldenrod is an 18-basket course with rubber tee-pads.
  • Playing disc golf at Goldenrod is FREE!

  • Fishing is allowed in the pond.
  • Goldenrod is a multi-use area.

What is Disc Golf?
It's played much like traditional golf, but instead of a club and ball, players use a flying disc, or Frisbee. The object is to complete each hole (basket) in the fewest number of strokes or throws.

Who plays Disc Golf?
Everyone!
