Voted among the top 5 disc golf courses in the world by several touring professional disc golfers. Built on a former rock quarry in 1997, “The Canyon” quickly became Florida’s “destination” course within a year’s time and broke attendance records 3 years in a row on its Fabulous Florida Disc Golf Tour stop. This Pay-to-play “extreme” disc golf course featured color-coded carpet tee pads, mountainous terrain and highlighted several long downhill fairways. The Gran Canyon dgc was on private land and was sold in 2006 to the dismay of thousands of disc golfers around the world. Efforts are underway to raise the $1.5 million to regain possession of the property.

"The Gran Canyon Disc Golf Course is one of the most spectacular courses I’ve ever experienced; like someone’s mad dream of what a perfect disc golf course can be."

"It’s the future of Disc Golf. People don’t want to see 275 foot hyzer shots. They’d love to see players crushing big shots off of canyon walls. Now THAT’s exciting!!!"
Dave Feldberg - 2008 PDGA World Champion, 2008 Japan Open Champion, 2007 Players Cup Champion, 2006 U.S. Champion, 2005 European Open Champion
"I wish more courses would employ this kind of philosophy. I had forgotten how much fun it was to play out here!"
