For the second time in a row, the popular disc golf app UDisc published its ranking for the best disc golf courses in the country. Last year’s list was so popular UDisk decided to expand and improve this list by highlighting the top five disc golf courses in each state.
Indiana’s top five golf courses, number 14 for disc golf, have an average score of 88.17. Of Indiana’s 217 courses, 128 have 18 holes or more. There are also 67 disc golf leagues and 28 stores that sell disc golf equipment in Indiana, according to UDisc.

So even if you can’t get to one of the top courses in the state, the chances are there is a disc golf course near you:
# 1: BC3 Disc Golf, Nashville, 92.95
BC3 Disc Golf opened in 2015 and is what disc golfers dream of. This course in the Brown Country Club offers open fairways, wooded holes, water hazards and many vertical meters. The course layout is perfect for disc golfers of all levels as it offers multiple tees and a nine-hole beginner course. BC3 is open from morning to night, seven days a week, all year round. There is a fee of $ 10 per day for non-members, but annual memberships are available.
# 2: Purdue Fort Wayne-Mastodon, Fort Wayne, 88.31
Located across the St. Joseph River from Purdue University Fort Wayne, Mastodon Course was designed by alumnus Brian Spaulding and professional disc golfer Brian Miller. The 18-hole forest property opened in 2019 wonderfully shows the natural beauty of the area and is also suitable for all skill levels.
# 3: Rogers Lakewood Park, Valparaiso, 87.58
Established in 2000, Rogers Lakewood Park is a 122-acre public park that offers fishing, boating and, as you guessed it, wonderful disc golf. There’s a $ 4- $ 8 fee per car, but for seasoned disc golfers looking for a challenge, this course is for you. With water hazards and trees galore, you’ll need to break out every throw in your pocket to conquer this one.
No. 4: Honeybear Hollow Campgrounds, Peru, 86.80
Peru’s best kept secret, Honeybear Hollow, has been around since 1977. While the baskets are a bit dated, that doesn’t detract from the 18 beautifully gorgeous holes that will take your breath away. Located midway between Indianapolis and South Bend, the course is great for beginners, has an entry fee of just $ 3, and is open 9am to 7pm
No. 5: Seviren Lang, Georgetown, 85.24
This challenging course has a mix of long and short holes that should not be taken lightly. This huge space in the 53.5-acre Garry E. Cavan Park opened in 2010. Although there is no fee, the course will be temporarily unavailable in mid-July when the Professional Disc Golf Association holds its annual Seviren Lang Memorial.
