Disc golf is a fun frisbee sport for all ages new to the Napa Valley. The 18 hole course has discatcher baskets. The well layed out course is easy to follow using the tee signs on each hole. A mostly short but technical course, the steep grassy hillsides of Skyline will make you wish you'd bought that soft putter. Live Oak, Manzanita, and the occasional olive tree make great disc-grabbers on this mostly open course. 18 holes with dirt tees and disc-catcher baskets, Skyline can easily be played in 2 hours. Good course design by MPP allows one to play the front or back nine, and be back at the entrance to the course if pressed for time. Framed signs at the tee show alternate pin placements.
The first course using a catching device went in at Oak Grove Park in La Candida in 1975. Now there are over 800 courses in the U.S. alone. The sport can be played by people of all ages and also gives a nice hiking workout. Make sure to also try out our NEW 9 Hole Course in the lower park area. Special golf discs are available at the park in the kiosk where course maps can be had as well.
Our club, the Napa Disk Club holds a promotional event called the Vintage Cup normally in February. Find out more about disc golf, nationally at pdga.com or in northern California, at NorCalSeries.com.

- ALLOWS LOOK before you throw.
Use trash cans and/or pack it out.
The quickest way to raise the ire of the locals is to be seen leaving trash on the course. With trash cans are located by the tees of holes 1, 5, 7, 11, and 15 there is no excuse.
Unfortunately, when you need them most they do the most damage.
