Disc golf may not have started in Austin, but it sometimes feels that way. The City of Austin Parks and Recreation Department is proud to host 6 disc golf courses, including Bartholomew Park, the oldest course in Texas still open. Other courses can be found at Zilker Metropolitan Park, Mary Moore Searight Park, Circle C Ranch Metropolitan Park, Roy G. Guerrero Colorado Park and the newest course at Davis Spring Special Park.
