PLEASE NOTE:  We encourage all disc golfers to obtain a current map when playing any course through May 2018.  The Lemon Lake Disc Golf Complex is undergoing major upgrades and restoration efforts in many course areas.  There are also numerous changes being made to the complex in preparation for the 2018 PDGA Tim Selinske United States Masters Disc Golf Championships.  Current maps and the shop's phone number are always posted outside the Flight Center doors to help best service disc golfers during this transition period and provide the most up to date information.

Red Course


This course has the most variety, from tight turns in the woods to long challenging par 4's.  This course is a lengthened version of the original 18 holes, Par 54 in standard configuration with a length of 5940 feet.  Note that for Pro Worlds this course measured 6369 with a par of 62.

This course has recently been repaired due to the devastation from the Emerald Ash Borer (Beetle) that has destroyed much of this course.  Repair efforts began in February 2017 and will continue through 2017.  This course re-opens to the public on September 1st.  Work will continue through Fall and likely Winter months to complete the restoration efforts so this course can be played for the 2018 PDGA Tim Selinske US Masters Championships.
