Art Dye Disc Golf Park
in American Fork, Utah in 360 Degrees
I think Art Dye is a hidden treasure in American Fork, Utah that often goes unnoticed. By the entrance it looks like a piddly park, but if you drive back into the park you realize this park is huge. Last year they hosted the American Fork days concert here and fireworks and it was a huge even with thousands of people. The park has the normal soccer fields, baseball fields, playgrounds, tennis courts, but it is the unique things that really are cool. Hidden in the trees around the east side of the park boasts one of the best Disc Golf Courses in the State. People love this course for it is such a great challenge and uniqueness. Each station is well marked and lets you know where you need to get your disc to, what the par for the course is, and a good map. The hole is a cage like structure you need to get your Frisbee disc into. It is such a great family activity. Needing green time, this is a great idea for you and your kiddos! Park also has a new pickle-ball court. How cool is that! Also if you get there early in the morning the chances of watching a hot air balloon launch is quite high, for this is a favorite spot for launching. There are 18 holes on his course. You don't have to do them all, just grab your Frisbee and try out a few. If you run across a pro Disc Golf player you will notice they carry a sling bag across their shoulder with a few different type of discs for different throws. Just like golfers with their bag of golf clubs there are disc used for different types of throws.
For those who remember, ten years ago my son also did his Eagle Project here are Art Dye Park. We spent hours cleaning up this area so this Disc Golf could be a better place.

There are many disc golf courses around. I ran into another great one at Brighton Ski Resort after hiking Lake Mary, Martha and Catherine. We went over to Twin lakes on the way down, and then walked along some ski trails coming down, and there hidden in the trees was a disc golf course.
