Escambia County adds a new Disc Golf Course

The new disc golf course offers recreational opportunities for all ages and adds another amenity to this beautiful 38-acre park, which features a playground, community center, picnic pavilions, open play areas, a dog park and more.

“I’m happy to have more amenities on the west side that everyone can enjoy,” District 2 Commissioner Mike Kohler said. “I’m already getting great feedback from disc golf enthusiasts who have checked out the course, and I hope that residents in District 2 and throughout the county will take advantage of this exciting new feature at Lexington Terrace Park.”

The course is open from sunrise to sunset and is free to use, but players must bring their own discs. The disc golf course includes new signage with a map of all 18 holes, along with the official rules of disc golf and QR codes for those interested in learning more about the game.

In addition to the new disc golf course, Parks and Recreation completed landscaping improvements throughout the park and installed a new pavilion and play features at the dog park. A new playground was also installed at Lexington Terrace Park in 2023.

Escambia County Parks and Recreation Director Michael Rhodes said the new disc golf course is especially exciting because it provides a low-cost recreational opportunity that is accessible to all ages and skill levels.

“You’ve got folks playing who are 7, 8, 9, 10 years old, all the way up to retirees in their 80s,” Rhodes said. “Anyone can play it. I’ve seen guys out here with their buddies, I’ve seen people out here alone, and I’ve seen whole families playing.”

The disc golf course also offers a fun, low-impact way to exercise and enjoy being outside, Rhodes said.

“You’re not riding around on a golf cart, you’re walking,” Rhodes said. “If you play the full 18 holes, you’re going to get good exercise in. We’re very excited to provide this new amenity at an Escambia County park, and I look forward to seeing people of all ages getting outside and enjoying a fun game of disc golf with the whole family.”

Lexington Terrace Park is located at 900 S. Old Corry Field Road. To learn more about the park and its amenities, visit the Escambia County website.
