Weekend activity: play Disc Golf at Dick Thurnau Park

Dick Thurnau Park (formally known as Lakewood Park) has one of the most popular Disc Golf courses in the Puget Sound. Located in White Center, Disc Golf is an accessible and affordable game. Pack a lunch and bring the whole family to enjoy the day!

How does one play Disc Golf?

According to the Professional Disc Golf Association: “A golf disc is thrown from a tee area to a target which is the “hole”…. As a player progresses down the fairway, he or she must make each consecutive throw from the spot where the previous throw has landed. The trees, shrubs, and terrain changes located in and around the fairways provide challenging obstacles for the golfer. Finally, the “putt” lands in the basket and the hole is completed.”

Where can I buy discs?

Stop by the small shop in the park! You can also purchase bags, hats, shirts, towels and more!

The shop is open Monday- Friday: noon – 7:00 p.m and Saturday – Sunday: 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.
