Our mission is to provide a unique family orientated disc golf experience embracing our history with an appreciation of nature.

What is Disc Golf?

Disc Golf players use a variety of discs such as a driver, mid range or putter disc to navigate through the disc golf course much like a golfer would on a golf course. Most first time participants choose to use a single multipurpose mid range disc until they become more skilled with the various throwing techniques: forehand, backhand and overhand.

About our Disc Golf Course

Aim your disc at a little bit of Alberta’s homestead history. Every historical target on this 18 hole disc golf course offers a different challenge. Thank you to the Leighton Art Center for donating a vintage outhouse from the one room Sheep Creek schoolhouse for our hole 18 target. Play this family outdoor sport built on 23 acres of unspoiled natural terrain. The hills, valleys, woodlands, ponds and wetlands provide for a most interesting game of disc golf. We share this land with deer, moose, coyotes, ducks, geese, raptors and numerous song birds. The course is set on land homesteaded in 1896 by William Jackson and has had 5 generations live on the land.

Come, join us and enjoy a game of disc golf in the scenic foothills on this historic piece of land with the majestic Rocky Mountains as a backdrop. The disc golf course has varied terrain making for a moderate physical challenge. The course now offers a challenge for beginners to advance players with recreation, advance and professional tee boxes. We recommend a light hiking or walking shoe. Dress for the season keeping in mind that Alberta weather can change rather quickly especially in the foothills.
