If you’re looking for something to do with the kids – why not play a round of disc golf? Calaveras County has several 18 hole Disc Golf courses that are free! Feeney Park behind Michelson School in Murphys is a great place to start. If you want to play in the woods on a little steeper terrain, check out White Pines Disc Golf. The course is across the lake from the beach and you can start by the ball field. The newest course is Plug Ugly in San Andreas. The local artwork on the tone poles makes it worth the drive! SNAC Arnold and Murphys can give you maps to these courses. If you’re down in Valley Springs, you’d need to pay an entrance fee to Hogan Reservoir, but you’d get two 18 hole courses! Over on the Tuolumne side, the newest course is at the Twain Harte Golf Course. It’s beautifully maintained and you play alongside the 9 hole regular golf course, with two baskets per regular golf hole. It’s $10 Fri-Sun and $7 on the weekdays – but worth it!

What are you waiting for? Start ’em young! Play on!
