The backbone to every great disc golf course and disc golf community is THE CLUB, and strength lies in numbers.

Bowen Park Disc Golf Course is a great course thanks to the hard work of many individuals. But, we can not take our course for granted.

If you are a disc golfer who enjoys playing at Bowen Park, join the NDGC. If you want to ensure your course stays in the ground and is respected by the community, join the NDGC. If you would like to meet other disc golfers in the area, engage in friendly competition, and be loosely affiliated with other players like yourself, join the NDGC!

Weekly Events

Weekly events provide set days for disc golfers to get together for a game, and meet new people that also love the sport. Our hope is to provide something that every level of player can enjoy, and with your support we can make that happen. Come out to an event to join in the fun, and let’s work together to make disc golf awesome on Vancouver Island!

The following are the weekly events we host. Be aware that start times change with the season, and some events get shut down temporarily due to light or other restrictions. Please arrive before the start time.

***NEW!*** Winter Putting League

Starting January 16, 2022.  Thursdays until February 24, 2022. (6 weeks of league and last week as a social get together). Cost: $60. Location: Upstairs, Nanaimo Curling Club. Time: 5:30 – 10:30 sign up for a 30 min time slot. Only your top 4 weeks will count towards your overall total for the league. There will be 3 divisions; Open / Advanced, Intermediate / Recreational, and Women’s. The top player in each division each week will win a glow putter designed for the league, as well as be entered in a draw for a portable basket as the grand prize. The league will be tracked using UDisc and we’ll be able to see how we stack up against the rest of North America. Details about this will go out later. There will be an option to paper score as well. The Curling Club is licensed, so there are food and beverages available on site. We encourage all participants to have 5 discs to use for the league. Discs will be available for purchase on site. You can partner up with someone so that you have 5 discs between you.

Registration will run from now until December 31st. If we don’t have a minimum of 5 participants in a division, it may be collapsed and the registrants will be asked if they would like to move to a different division. Let’s make this a huge success with a great turn out, and a great way to stay social and throwing during some of the “not so nice weather”!
