Disc Golf is played throughout Ontario with courses being added all the time. Additionally many courses operate recreational leagues and or clubs throughout the year. These clubs and organizations are made up of non-profit groups and some corporate enitites running on ski hills or within conservation areas or in provincial parks. Most courses are free to play, however at some you may be charged a nominal entrance fee, either to play, or a park entrance fee per vehicle (or possibly for the number of occupants in your vehicle). We've listed both member clubs and non-member clubs in order to support the growth of play throughout the province. Most leagues and clubs offer co-ed play and a few offer single gender play, junior (under 19) and masters level play. Many courses have tournaments throughout the year for prizes and merchandise. See the Community Calendar for more details!
Provincial Clubs & Course Distribution
Part of the recognition of disc sports and our standing as a Provincial Sports Organization through the Ministry of Health Promotions is based on defined areas throughout the province that contain play, clubs and members. To help identify these regions and our member clubs and facilities the following pertains.
As a provincial body, our efforts and membership are defined within three regions. These regions are identified as the East, North and South, following the following geographic boundaries...
Eastern Ontario - from Peterborough east to Ottawa and north to Huntsville and Barry's Bay
Northern Ontario - the northern portion of the province, including Parry Sound, North Bay, Sudbury, Timmins, Sault Ste. Marie and all points north.
Southern Ontario - the Greater Toronto Area, south to Niagara and Windsor, north to Orillia and Owen Sound
(Clearer delineatation of the break of the northern, southern and eastern boundaries. It's pretty simple. The electoral district of Parry Sound-Muskoka, has been subdivided so that the Muskoka area is considered part of the South region. Everything above that is considered the North region. Additionally the electoral district of Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke has been divided to break off the Nipissing (mostly/part of Algonquin Park) boundary to be included in the North and Renfrew-Pembroke falls into the Eastern region. Finally the break for Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock electoral district has allocated Brock as part of the Southern region, with everything else considered as part of the Eastern district. Hopefully this provides clarification :)
We have further supported the definition of these regions by categorizing our disc golf course interactive listings into these defined regions.
