Local interest in the sport of disc golf lead to the development of this new program opportunity for Barber Park. This new offering sparked an instant bond between the local Disc Golf Association and the Greensboro Parks and Recreation Department. Designed and installed by park staff and disc golf volunteers, the 18 hole disc golf course offers challenging play for participants of all skill levels on a course that winds around the grounds of beautiful Barber Park.
Local community organizations have been instrumental in the success of this program. The original goals were supplied by the Greensboro Disc Golf Association and local sponsor Omega Sports has recently supplied score cards complete with a course map, scoring format and discount coupons for participants to use. Members of the Disc Golf Association continue to assist the park staff with maintenance and course cleanup. Through the combined efforts of the Barber park staff and local supporters, Barber Park offers one of the best disc golf courses available in the area.
As part of Barber Park's Master Plan, a new, more challenging disc golf course has been designed to replace the current course. The new course will be included in a future phase of development. We encourage you to visit Barber Park during this exciting time of growth. Phase One of the Master Plan is underway and expected to be completed in mid- to late-2009.
