Marx Meadow | John F. Kennedy Drive and 25th Ave, San Francisco, CA
This isn’t just a casual day of Frisbee in the park.
This is professional disc golf and the 28th Annual “San Francisco Safari” brings together 150 pro and amateur players – including some of the best disc golfers in the world – to vie for nearly $10,000 in prizes at the disc golf course in Golden Gate Park.
Watch some of the best disc golfers in the world compete in the tightly wooded 18-hole course located in Marx Meadow between 25th and 30th avenues.
Where’s the best place to watch?
- Amazing Long Throws: Hole 22 at Marx Meadow – At this 640 foot hole, you’ll see players bust their triceps trying to air it out by soaring a disc the length of nearly two football fields.
- Trick Shots & Precision Putts: Holes 4-5-6 – Located Near 28th and Fulton, these three holes require players to wind shots around a challenging obstacle of trees which line both sides. Sometimes you’ll see a player execute a rolling shot (yes, purposely throwing it on the ground so that it rolls upright towards the hole).
What is Disc Golf?
Disc golf is played much like traditional golf, except instead of a ball and clubs, players use a flying disc, with the object of completing each hole in the fewest number of throws.
Spectators are welcome and watching the tournament will be like a less-formal gallery at a regular golf tournament. As long as you stay outside the flight paths and are relatively still and quiet while someone is throwing, it should be a fun sporting event for all.
