No appointment is needed to play disc golf in the parks.

Disc golf has been an up-and-coming sport in Medicine Hat over the last two years and can be played year-round in three Medicine Hat parks, Kiwanis Central Park, Gilwell Park, and Leinweber Park. Disc golf league organizer Jared Ziegen hagel says the accessible and affordable sport encourages players to bask in the beautiful nature that surrounds them, while skillfully throwing discs into chain baskets — like golf, the goal is to land the disc in the basket in the fewest number of throws. “Medicine Hat is a very easy place to merge disc golf into, because of all the parks throughout the City,” says Zeigenhagel. “Right now, all three parks have nine baskets to make a full course, but since Gilwell and Leinweber are so close, you can actually play an 18-basket game.”

The sport can be played competitively or casually, with one person, the whole family, or friend group. Recently, glow-in-the-dark discs have introduced themselves into the game, allowing players to perfect their skills after the sun sets. “I feel the sport captures the essence of Medicine Hat’s community — neither are high-intensity and both are very relaxing. I also enjoy that as you play, you’re going for a walk,” says Jake Knodel, owner of Station Coffee Company , sponsor to the disc golf league, and avid disc golf player.
