Disc Golf at Christie Lake
Eighteen holes of flying fun are now open at Christie Lake Conservation Area with the introduction of disc golf: an exciting outdoor sport, gaining popularity world-wide.
Disc golf is a great outdoor activity, perfect for individual play, team play, and organized competition. It’s been around for more than 30 years, and more than 1200 courses exist in North America alone, with 100 new courses being built worldwide every year. Set up like a golf course, disc golf holes wind through fields and forests to reach the basket but played with flying discs rather than clubs and a ball.
Since first played in the 1970s, the sport has gone pro over the last few decades. Professional disc golf associations hold tournaments all over the world for men, women, and children. Click the links below to download a scorecard, with or without a fact sheet.
Even if golf is not your bag, disc golf can be fun part of your picnic with friends or family.
Christie Lake's ponds are stocked with rainbow trout from the last Saturday in April to early June. Pond 2, "Sunfish Pond" is designated for kids only, so make sure your children are equipped with a rod and reel. All of the ponds are a short trip from the lake and bait is available for sale at the gatehouse. Provincial fishing licence requirements apply.
Christie Lake's idyllic natural setting makes it a great destination for all sizes of group and family picnics. There is plenty of parking, covered picnic pavilions, hundreds of picnic tables and grassy fields that are perfect for games, races or just relaxing. With space for 10,000 visitors and cars, Christie Lake is ideal for your company's outdoor event. Contact park staff for more information.
