In 2008, Lyon College installed an 18-hole disc golf course.
Unlike regular golf, disc golf is played using flying discs thrown by the golfer.
Much like regular golf, the object of disc golf is to walk a course from beginning to end in the fewest number of throws of the disc.
The Lyon College Course has recently been updated to include a short and long course layout thanks to the Batesville Community. These layouts are marked by small blue (long course) and red (short course) squares around campus. Specific layout details can be found at udisc.com.
Each of the holes on Lyon's course has a sign illustrating the layout at the tee box. Each hole is a Par 3 and can be played in six, nine or full 18-hole increments. The course is open year-round.
The Lyon College Disc Golf Course is free to play and open to the public.
Maps of the course, as well as a wide array of discs and specialty discs, are available in The Scot Shop and Lyon Education & Adventure Program Office. Charts describing the characteristics of each disc and its flight patterns are also available at the bookstore.
Lyon is more than just a college. It's a community distinguished by its academic curriculum, unique honor and social systems, and award-winning professors.
