Fore! New disc golf course tees off in Long Beach

LONG BEACH - A budding sport with a broadening base is now teeing off on the Long Beach Peninsula.

In October, the Peninsula Golf Course in Long Beach officially opened a new 18-hole disc golf course, the culmination of a vision by course owner Doug Brown and disc golf course designers Derek Samuelson and Colton Martin.

The course, located at 9604 Pacific Way in Long Beach, held their first booking on Oct. 19, with more signing up for tee times in recent days as word of the new course has spread.

From vision to fruition

The premise and inspiration for the disc course came about four years ago, after Peninsula Golf Course owner Doug Brown peered through a strand of trees toward the north end of the 55-acre property.

"Five years ago we bought the course, and about a year into I saw the trees out in the distance and thought 'that could be a disc golf course,'" Brown said.
