The Ashe County Disc Golf Course has been considered one of the top courses in North Carolina (and the United States) for several years. In fact, the course is currently ranked as the best course in NC, and in the Top 25 in the world according to discgolfcoursereview.com.

Designed by Harold Duvall, co-owner of Innova Disc Golf, the Ashe County Course offers both a Championship layout and Amateur layout. The park offers 20-holes of disc golf, with alternative Holes 8 and 9 allowing players to make a shorter loop. Concrete and/or platform rubber decked tee-pads and easy-to-spot DiscCatcher baskets have been installed on every hole courtesy of Innova Disc Golf.

The Nature Trail Disc Golf Course tee-signs were installed on the course’s short tee-pads, allowing players to learn about the natural and cultural resources found on every hole. Each tee-sign also provides a Pro-Tip, giving novice players advice about proper techniques and various shots. The “Birdies” and “Tree Love” scorecards double as field guides, allowing players to identify birds and trees during their round.

Ashe County Birdies

1.00 mile
Whether in good shots or in actual birds, it's always good to see as many "Birdies" as possible during your round of disc golf. The "Birdies" scorecard/field-guide was designed to help players identify some of the more common birds found at in the Blue Ridge Mountains. How many "Birdies" will you see during your round today?
"Tree Love" scorecard
Disc Golf

Ashe County Trees

Trail length:
1.00 mile
When disc golfers hit a tree with their disc and get a favorable bounce, they call that “Tree Love”. Use the pictures on this scorecard to identify a few of the trees found here. Every time you hit a tree with your frisbee, take a second to try to identify it. Look at its bark, leaf shape and other identifying features. Soon, identifying trees will be as easy as making a five foot putt.
