Bettendorf Parks and Recreation has a lot of outdoor recreation activity spots for residents to enjoy. A popular sport in the parks? Disc golf. If you’re unfamiliar with disc golf, it’s pretty similar to golf, except that players throw frisbees at a target. Most games are played on a course with 9 or 18 holes. Our parks have two disc golf courses for you to choose from. Our personal favorite? The Middle Park Disc Golf Course. The course consists of 18 holes. It is considered one of the top premier disc golf courses in the area. There are a variety of pin placements at each hole, ensuring that your skill is tested and flexed every step of the way. There are also fun tree, hill, and water hazards along the course.
