WARSAW – There are a pair of free disc golf courses available in Kosciusko County for the entire family to enjoy.
The Lodge has been and will continue to be excited to host disc golfers on its property in northeast Syracuse.
Located on the old Smith-Walbridge property adjacent to Maxwelton Golf Club and within eyesight of Boner and Syracuse lakes, The Lodge is home to a quaint yet challenging disc golf experience.
The 18-hole course is free to play, and expands across The Lodge property to the south and east. Hole one starts near the parking lot and works its way down toward the pond and around the buildings.
Disc golfers are to bring their own supplies as The Lodge does not rent or provide any discs or bags.
The Lodge is asking people to practice appropriate social distancing measures while on the course and on the property. There is a portable restroom on site for disc golfers to use.
One of the property owners, Kim Moser, noted that the course is generally green flagged unless there are kids camps on the property. The Lodge, which is overseen by Grace Community Church, will host kids camps in the summer. In those weeks, the course will be red flagged and unavailable. Otherwise, the course is open and good to go and is open year-round.
Moser added The Lodge’s Facebook page will have the course’s status updated as needed. Also check the Facebook page for events or announcements as it pertains to The Lodge and the ever-changing social landscape.
A second course is awaiting at Lucerne Park. Located just to the west of Pike Lake in downtown Warsaw, the course is a free nine-hole draw the entire family can enjoy. Like the Lodge, Lucerne Park does not provide discs or bags.
The Warsaw Parks Department website has scorecards and course layouts available for use.
