Lincoln Disc Golf Course Ranked One of World’s Best

Published on March 04, 2024

The Parks and Recreation Department today announced that the Beal Slough Disc Golf Course, Pine Lake Road and South 60th Street, is ranked as one of the top courses in the world, according to UDisc, the disc golf course application and directory. The course is ranked 88th in UDisc’s annual World’s Best Disc Golf Courses top 100 ranking and is the only Nebraska course in the list.

“We are excited to put Lincoln and Nebraska in the top disc golf courses in the world. This course has been driven by the volunteers with the Lincoln Flying Disc Club since day one on for this course. This recognition for the City is due to their vision and dedication to the sport,” said Parks and Recreation Director Maggie Stuckey-Ross.

The Beal Slough 18-hole course opened in 2021 and is rated as challenging to very challenging. The par 61 course features two layouts, white for amateurs and blue for professional-level players. A practice area includes two veteran baskets, a marksman basket, two warm up nets with concrete pads, and a 500-foot driving range. Leagues play on Sundays.

Improvements planned by the City in 2025 include the addition of the Beal Slough bicycle trail, additional trees, and a culvert crossing near holes 7 and 12 to connect the two sections of the course.

The course resides in the Beal Slough floodplain owned by the City of Lincoln and was constructed by the Lincoln Flying Disc Club through an agreement with the City. The non-profit club maintains the course and raises funds for improvements and maintenance through donations and suggested $5 daily and $75 annual fees.

In addition to the Beal Slough course, the Lincoln Flying Disc Club maintains four other courses in Lincoln: Tierra Park, South 27th Street and Tierra Drive; Max E. Roper Park East, 800 Groveland St.; Max E. Roper Park West, 3630 N. Third St.; and the Bethany Beginners Course, North 65th and Vine streets. For more information about the club, visit
