Disc out of place? Check at MetroParks seeks owners of disc golf discs

CANFIELD — If you forgot or overthrew your golf disc in Mill Creek MetroParks, you may be in luck.

Mill Creek MetroParks has 45 unclaimed discs left behind from disc golfers, according to Mill Creek Farm supervisor Brian Moff.

Most of the discs left behind were from last year, but some have been found from this year as people make the most of the unseasonably warm weather this winter.

“I have about two or three from this year,” Moff said.

Moff said it’s common for discs to be left behind and that if someone puts their name and number on them, he always calls so the owner can claim it.

He said the disc golf course is located on the farm, across the street from the Canfield Fairgrounds.

Disc golf is similar to golf, Moff said.

“With disc golf, you throw a disc from one spot, a tee, to a target, (which is) a basket and you try to get the disc into the basket with as few throws as possible,” he said. “Just like with regular golf, there’s birdies and holes in one.”

He said the course, which was built in 2019, is very popular.

“Two-hundred and eighty-two people played in June of last year. (On) the busiest day, there were 25 people,” Moff said. “In January it was much slower due to the weather. Fifty-seven people played in January of this year.”

Moff said the park has two disc golf courses, a nine-hole beginner course and an 18-hole advanced course, at the MetroPark Farm, 7574 Columbiana-Canfield Road in Canfield.

The disc golf course is a par 60 and measures about 6,000 feet.

“It’s available to host for tournaments,” he said. “It’s ranked one of the top 20 disc golf courses in Ohio.”

To claim your lost golf disc, call the park at 330-702-3000, ext. 111.
