The Red Arrow Disc Golf Course at Red Arrow Park is a challenge for those who love to disc.

This 27-hole course allows golfers to play a full 18-hole round as well as the option to add on the more challenging back 9 holes. This course is literally a walk in the park as it takes you all through some of the most beautiful parts of the park. During late summer, tall flowers line the fairways and mature trees shade you as you make your way through your game. More challenging shots are complimented with huge, wide-open shots to really let you flex your discing skills. If you have not visited this disc golf course yet, it is the perfect idea for a warm Oshkosh day.
