Anderson Disc Golf Project

Disc golf is a low-impact, high-strategy sport that invites all ages, abilities, and backgrounds to be active together! Madison County is home to three disc golf courses, with a fourth planned for Edgewater Park in Anderson.

Professional Disc Golf course designer, Dennis Byrne, and key project organizer and course designer mentee, Phil Larson, have designed an 18-hole course that weaves through Edgewater Park between White River and the levee.  Near Anderson University’s campus, thousands of downtown neighbors, a river trail system, and a landmark pedestrian bridge, the new disc golf course will help redefine and activate Edgewater Park as citizens adjust to the presence of the levee, constructed in 2013-2015.

The design has been approved by the Army Corps of Engineers to build on top of and around the levee, and the Anderson Park Board has approved construction pending the success of a local fundraising campaign to build and install the course. Local leaders Phil Larson and Levi Rinker are leading the effort to bring disc golf to Anderson.
