DAVID RICHARDSON MEMORIAL DISC GOLF PARK WILL BE CLOSED STARTING DECEMBER 2020. ALL TRAILS, PATHWAYS, AND PARKS IN THE CONSTRUCTION ROUTE WILL BE TEMPORARILY REROUTED AND REESTABLISHED IN THE RESTORATION PHASE OF THE PROJECT. THERE WILL BE NO PUBLIC ACCESS TO THE ENTIRE PARK DURING THIS TIME.
ATCO will be installing approximately 14 km of natural gas pipeline that will run along the northwest leg of Stoney Trail within the Transportation/Utility Corridor (TUC) and then along 85th Street NW from Scenic Bow Road to Township Road 261A. The construction of the pipeline will affect access to trails, pathways and parks.
Construction and closure timeline is December 2020-October 2021, weather permitting.

There is no charge to play and you do not need to book tee times. We do ask that you pack out what you pack in and if you see any garbage on the course, please pick it up. This course is for everyone and so we ask that everyone helps out in taking care of this brand new, beautiful course that is David’s legacy.
About the Course
Nestled on 27 acres of rolling aspen covered hills in Northwest Calgary, the David Richardson Memorial Disc Golf Park is a one-of-a-kind disc golf facility. The course is a par-63, 18-hole layout ranging from over 7,400 ft in length for experts, to 5,200 ft for beginners and families. The course is the longest in the City of Calgary built with the intent of being a professional tournament venue.
This diverse layout features everything from long, 700ft par-5’s, that will take all the strength you’ve got, to short par-3’s with the potential for an ace run. The combination of rolling topography and tree lined fairways provides plenty of strategic interest for those looking for a challenge – not to mention the numerous water hazards!
The park is an amenity located on the Rotary Mattamy Greenway – a 138 km long continuous pathway network serving Calgarians by providing access to a number of unique amenities including: off-leash dog parks, family fitness parks, educational wetland interpretive areas and unique play structures.
