What Can You Do at Flying Armadillo Disc Golf Club?

Flying Armadillo Disc Golf Club has two 18-hole courses and practice baskets. One is a family-friendly par 2 Mini Course. Udisc ranks it as No. 34 in the world. Think of it as mini golf for disc golf. On average, the holes are 100-feet long. It’s perfect for beginners and kids. Like mini golf, they have themed holes like the pond, tank, and Alamo holes.
The other is a 6,000-foot Big Course. Ranked 84th in the world by UDisc, the big course is a great way to explore the Texas Hill Country terrain. You’ll see giant oak trees and creek beds while traipsing across ever-changing elevations. All the baskets contain solar lights for night rounds.
Snacks and drinks are available. Beware it’s BYOB. Occasionally, they have onsite food such as BBQ.
What Is Disc Golf?
Like its name, disc golf resembles the golf everyone knows. Except, instead of a set of clubs and golf balls, players use a flying disc better known as Frisbee. In golf, the goal is to get the ball to the hole in the fewest strokes possible. The same goes for disc golf. Instead of hitting the ball with a club, you throw the disc.
Of course, a disc golf course will feature obstacles. Instead of sand traps and water, discs can end up in shrubs and trees. The player must make the next throw from the position where the previous throw landed. Elevated metal baskets are the “holes” in disc golf.
Go on and give it a try. They’re open seven days a week. Get some fresh air. For the latest news, visit the Flying Armadillo Disc Golf Club’s Facebook page. The address is 3115 Hilliard Rd., San Marcos, Texas 78666.
