elcome!! Thank you for visiting the home of the Gaston Disc Golf Club! We are a social organization dedicated to promoting the game of disc golf in the community, as a great family outdoor recreational activity.

In February 2007, the 1st disc golf course in Gaston County opened at beautiful Rankin Lake Park in Gastonia, NC near the intersection of I-85 and Hwy. 321! The course is currently 18 holes, with the back 9 installed in late August '07. Hole #1 starts right in front of the clubhouse, check it out!

Check out our Courses page for more details!

We also have a great discussion forum, where members and guests can talk about club business, course plans, events, discs, and other things. If you would like to join the club as a paid member, click here.

Thanks again to Chuck Dellinger, Parks & Rec. Director for the City of Gastonia, as well as the entire Parks & Rec. Department for all their hard work in making the course so awesome!

We are currently in the process of adding content to all of the sections, so stop back in to check things out as we continue to build and grow.

Q: What is disc golf ?

A: Disc Golf is a sport which has been around since 1975. It is becoming extremely popular across the country, and is quickly catching on in Europe, Australia, Japan, and many other countries.  It is similar to golf, however instead of a ball and clubs, you throw specially made plastic flying discs - similar to frisbees yet heavier and more streamlined. Instead of a hole in the ground, the object in disc golf is to get the disc into a metal basket on a pole, over which chains are suspended to help slow the disc down. Fewest throws wins!
