Disc Golf Course Design & Installation: West City Park Disc Golf Course – Festus, Missouri
West City Park is an 18 hole disc golf course with two tees and two pin placements per hole. This is one of the most picturesque and unique disc golf courses in the world. Utilizing the lay of the land with its blend of open areas, hills, woods, lakes and creeks, this state of the art design offers a different challenge on almost every hole. Long open holes with water hazards, tight wooded shots with sloped greens, and even holes with park type settings await!
The creek or lake comes into play on 9 of the 18 holes and it is a true risk/reward course that requires course management throughout! This course plays to a par 70 in all configurations; while it is not difficult to shoot under par from the short tees to the short pins, from long tees to long pins (usually only stretched out for tournaments) it can be a very challenging course for even the best players in the world!
Directions: Take I-55 south from St. Louis to exit 175 in Festus (Highway A). Go right 1 mile to Collins Road, then another right ½ mile to stop sign at West Main Street. Make a right on West Main and then an immediate left on Sunshine Drive and after approximately 2 miles (during which the road will veer to the left and become Old Highway A) the park will be on your right. The first tee is near the animal shelter on the west side of the park; parking is available at the farthest west shelter near tees #9 and #18. A link to Google Maps is below:
