As far as socially distant activities go, there’s not much out there like disc golf. Enjoy your wooded surroundings as you toss discs far and wide. In the Valley, there’s tons of great places to do it. Head out to Tower Ridge for 18 holes deep in the woods for a challenge. For something a little laid back, Mt. Simon’s disc golf course is a very popular nine holes in the center of Eau Claire. Wakanda Park in Menomonie is another popular spot with 18 holes that are a good mix of short and long holes, with some fun hazards, and tricky shots. Give it a spin!
