Disc golf is similar to regular golf however, instead of using golf clubs and balls aiming for a hole, Disc Golf players use golf discs and aim for a Disc Pole Hole, a pole extending up from the ground with chains and a basket where the disc lands. The object of the game is to complete each hole in the fewest number of throws, starting from a tee area and finishing at the Disc Pole Hole Da Yoopers DISC da UP : a non profit made of members from the Marquette area community.

There are Moutain bike trails on the site.
Great care has been taken to design the disc golf course so as not to interfer with bikers, hikers, or any other people that would possible be using the property.
