Blue Lake Disc Golf Course was installed in 2012 and has been the site of several professional disc golf tournaments including the 2014 PDGA Pro World Championships. Below, is the detailed history of the course provided by Next Adventure on www.netadventure.net.

The Blue Lake Regional Park disc golf course opened to the public on August 15, 2012.  The project came t0 fruition thanks to the hard work, cooperation and diligence by Metro Parks, Next Adventure, and Stumptown Disc Golf Club.  Initially the land had been planned to host a traditional ball golf course, but because of the interest and excitement from the local disc golf community Metro decided to go with something new, and try disc golf.  The course was designed by World Champion disc golfer Dave Feldberg, Jeff Haggerty, and Tyler Christensen.  A core group of volunteers worked in their spare time to clear the fairways, pour the cement tee pads, construct & install the tee signs, benches, and install the baskets.  Next Adventure built the tee pads, tee signs, and benches with the help of Stumptown disc golf club volunteers, while KEEN funded & built the kiosk that sits near tee pad #1.

Some of the key volunteers who dedicated many hours to this project:
Jeff Hagerty
Bryan Knudsen

The course has proved to be very popular since it’s opening.  The 18 hole, par 69 course is very challenging with some rough that tends to swallow up discs if a player happens to miss the fairway.  The tee pads are very large, and the tee signs & benches are solid to Next Adventure & the many volunteers that helped install them.

Thanks to Josh Dearing for his awesome picture of all 18 holes!
