Fort Yargo Disc Golf–Winder, Georgia

Fort Yargo Disc Golf Fort Yargo Disc Golf Course is an 18 hole wooded course located in Fort Yargo State Park, just outside of Winder, Georgia.

The course, while located throughout a patch of forest in the state park, is not so densely wooded as to frustrate even the newest disc golfer.  In fact, the course provides an excellent mix of long range open shots through a few trees with several holes requiring a more finesse touch.

This course is actually one of my personal favorites, as playing it feels a lot like hiking while playing. The entire course meanders along a large hillside that approaches a lake at its base, and has a very popular mountain biking trail trekking though it. Besides the extra exercise one gets from hiking along hillsides, the course also provides several excellent views of the surrounding mountains and the lake.

The first several holes begin a slow descent towards the lake, and are not too technically difficult. Each hole is marked with a sign and concrete tee pad.

The middle holes play along the lake’s shoreline, and even cross over a small stream via a wooden bridge.

The last section of the course begins the descent back up the hillside, and initially includes several holes in wide open expanses before getting back into a slightly more dense area of tree growth.
