Rockingham County’s first disc golf course, Lake's Edge, officially opened in June of 2007 at Lake Reidsville.
Based on traditional golf, disc golf is a fast-growing sport where players throw a flying disc into a metal basket with chains hanging over it. The player that travels the course making the fewest number of throws of the disc wins. The discs are specially made for various parts of the games – from putters to mid-range discs to drivers.
Disc golf has really taken off around the nation and the world. It is a sport that can be played by all ages at various levels. There is even a pro tour, which has been known to draw players from as far away as Sweden.
Lake's Edge is geared for both the family and for professional play. Located in the woods of Lake Reidsville Recreation Park, the course is challenging as players must maneuver their shots around trees and over water. The only cost associated with the play is the car entry fee into the park and the rental of discs, if needed. The Lake Reidsville Camp Store will have discs available for sale or players can bring their own.
In addition to local tournaments, officials have plans to get on the professional disc golf course circuit. The course is listed on the Disc Golf Directory on www.PDGA.com. Check out upcoming tournaments on our Calendar of Events or call the Lake Store at 336-349-4738.
