Barrie’s first disc golf course officially opened on May 15th, 2014. The course offers free fun for the whole family, and you don’t even need a tee time.
The course is located in the Sandy Hollow area at 434 Ferndale Drive North, in the northern section of the Barrie landfill lands. Access to the course is from the driveway beside the Ferndale Drive North Water Tower, just south of Benson Drive.
The course features a parking area, designated fairways and signage. The fairways are located on a combination of meadow tableland and hilly forest. The course is free of charge and suitable for all ages. Discs are not provided; players often use Frisbees as a substitute. Use at your own risk: this site is not considered accessible and is considered a natural hazard area.
Please note that the front gates along Ferndale Drive North will be opened during fair weather months and closed during the winter months. Pedestrian access to the site is always available through the Nine Mile Portage Heritage Trail entrance.
Disc golf is a flying disc game in which individual players throw a flying disc at a target called a basket. The game is played like traditional golf, with 9 or 18 baskets on narrow “fairways”. When the “putt” lands in the basket, the “hole” is completed. The object of the game is to traverse a course from beginning to end in the fewest number of throws of the disc. (Source)
The object of disc golf is to have fun and complete the course in the fewest throws. Safety and courtesy are important. Be careful of plants, animals and other visitors. Throw only when the landing area is clear of people including other players.
Please be advised that poison ivy is a naturally occurring plant in Barrie. Poison ivy can be found along the forest edges and in shady areas within the forests in the disc golf course. Poison ivy generally has three leaves and a red stem. The oil from the leaves can remain active for several years and cause a skin reaction. Users are advised to watch for poison ivy and take precautions to avoid skin contact with the plant.
