Central Park Disc Golf Course is located in Central Park in Schenectady (follow these directions for parking near Hole 1). It is owned by the City of Schenectady.
In the heart of the City of Schenectady is its Crown Jewel: Central Park. The park boasts some of the best tennis and baseball facilities in the region. Since 2011, it also has an eighteen hole disc golf course with DisCatcher baskets.
The course starts at the kiosk where you are invited to sign in so we can track the court’s usage. It winds its way through the park, showing golfers all of its wonderful aspects. Holes 1 through 5 are in the woodlands area, holes 6 through 11 weave by the tennis courts and picnic areas and over a creek. Passing the dog park, hole 12 is by the award winning Rose Garden and shoots up Monument Hill – one of the highest points in Schenectady. Holes 13 through 16 take you up into an older wooded areas and back down near sledding hills to Iroquois Lake and beautiful views of the iconic Central Park fountain. Hole 17 repasses the Rose Garden, where you can view over 300 different varieties of roses. Hole 18 requires a shot over a creek and back to the kiosk.
The different aspects of the park create a very diverse disc golf course with challenging wooded fairways, shots over creeks and up and down hills. If you are an experienced golfer, play from the blue tees. If you are just starting, or just playing for fun, the white tees will be more enjoyable.
