Looking for a fun way to get outdoors and enjoy time with your family while getting a little exercise? We’ve recently taken up disc golf and LOVE it! And it’s FREE!!
See below for Rules & Tips for Beginners.
The Heritage Park Disc Golf Course in Flower Mound is an 18-hole course (option for 9 holes is available). Nestled within the woodlands of the Cross Timbers eco-region, the course is laid out over 25 acres of some of the most scenic, natural, and undisturbed land in Flower Mound. There is a wide range of tree lined fairways, meandering creek beds, water hazards, rock outcroppings, and terrain that offers dramatic elevation changes.
The course is designed for intermediate and advanced players, but can also be enjoyed by the beginner. Features include top of the line disc golf baskets, concrete tee pads, and tee yardage signs.
NOTE: Practice caution as there are snakes in the area.

Discs vs Frisbees:
- Frisbees are lightweight and designed for accuracy, but not necessarily distance.
- Disc golf discs are smaller in size, generally heavier, and are designed to cut through the wind.
- So disc golf discs fly farther.

Disc Golf Course Rules
The object of the game is to play the round in the fewest number of throws.
Do not throw until park visitors are safely out of range. Always give park users the right of way.
Begin playing each hole by teeing off from the concrete tee pad. Throws must be completed with both feet behind the end of the pad.
All other throws are made from behind where the disc comes to rest.
The player whose disc is furthest from the basket throws first.
A run and follow through are allowed unless the lie is within 10 meters of the target.
To complete the hole, the disc must come to rest in the basket or chains.
Tee-off order is determined by players’ score on the previous hole. Lowest score tees first.
A player may not break, bend, or hold back any part of a tree or vegetation in order to make room for their throwing motion or their path to the basket.
Allow faster groups to play through when possible.
Hours & Location
The disc golf course is open daily from dawn to dusk (subject to closure due to maintenance, special events, and weather related conditions).

Tips for Beginners:
Disc golf is so much fun! But if you’re a beginner, it can be stressful to “keep up” with other players on the course. A few tips:
- Google “How to throw disc golf” for some great videos to teach you the basic forms for throwing the disc. There are a number of ways to throw the disc, such as side arm, backhand, tomahawk, and thumber.
- Take your disks to a local park with a big field. We have one near us with soccer goals that we use for target practice from 200+ feet away. This will give you the chance to practice your throws.
- Once you get on the course, if you find players waiting behind you, you can always ask them if they’d like to “play through.” The better players will be out of your way before you know it.
