Disc Golf - City Park (New Orleans)

After many trips to Waveland to play in the only disc golf course in the area, we finally have a new course close by to play.  That course is City Park in New Orleans.  The actual disc golf course is located in between I-610 and the track by Tad Gormley (Palm Drive runs through the course).

This course is perfect for the average disc golf player (which I classify myself as).  Several holes offer water hazards, trees to maneveur around, and some pedistrians to avoid.  I suggest bringing a couple extra discs, because there are plenty of water hazards that are just unavoidable to throw over.  Depending on the size of your party, the course takes anywhere from an hour to an hour and a half to play.  I'd recommend getting an early start in the morning (9:00am-ish) because the course tends to get crowded as the day progresses.

Another benefit about this course is that it is located in the heart of Mid-City, which provides plenty of eating oppurtunities after a round.  May I suggest Fellini's Cafe or Parkway Bakery & Tavern.  If you end up at Parkway, you'd be doing a disservice to yourself if you didn't order the Parkway Surf & Turf, a mouthwatering poboy with roast beef, fried shrimp, and roast beef gravy poured on top.  A nice way to replinsh all those calories burnt from playing disc golf (that is how I justify it!).

If you live in or around the New Orleans area (Northshore included), don't pass up an oppurtunity to experience a disc golf course that will satisfy your throwing needs.
