About

Colonial Disc Golf Club

Who We Are

    Colonial Disc Golf Club was formed in the fall of 1998, a year after the peninsula’s first disc golf course was installed at Newport News Park. Local players previously would have to travel to Bayville Farms Park in Virginia Beach to play, which is one of the country’s first courses, installed in 1976.  Local players worked with the Newport News Parks Department to design and install the new course. The club was formed to help maintain the course and run organized events that promote the growth of disc golf.  In 2006, the club worked with York County to design and install a championship level disc course at New Quarter Park.  This expanded our responsibilities and opportunities to reach more players in the community. In 2014, the club began work with the City of Williamsburg to design another championship caliber course at Waller Mill Park. We made the decision to change our name from Newport News Disc Golf Club to Colonial Disc Golf Club to be more representative of our region. We are an affiliate club member of the Professional Disc Golf Association (PDGA). Events are held throughout the year including charitable events, weekly league play, and PDGA sanctioned tournaments. From 1998-2017, the club has hosted over 50 PDGA sanctioned events, over 25 charity tournaments, and drawn thousands in annual attendance to weekly league play.

The purposes of our organization are to:

  • Provide and promote a better understanding of Disc Golf.
  • Provide an opportunity for Amateur and Novice Disc Golfers to develop their skills and level of play.
  • Host professionally run tournaments that allow the Novice and Experienced Disc Golfer to compete in a respectable manner.
  • Maintain the disc golf course (performing routine pruning, trimming, limb and trash removal, etc.).
  • Promote good fellowship and a free exchange of ideas among all area Disc Golfers.

The Colonial Disc Golf Club Executive Board for 2017 consists of:

  President Tim Dempsey
  Vice President Larry Merrill
