Campground Disc Golf Course temporarily CLOSED through WA State mandated closure period: Whatcom Disc Golf Club will be temporarily closing the disc golf course and removing the baskets, in order to comply with the Stay at Home order. We had originally hoped that disc golf would not be affect by Covid19 but after reading the following articles, the announcement to stay home by the Professional Disc Golf Association (PDGA) as well as an observation of the lack of social distancing exhibited last weekend at the course – after our state had been directed keep distance.

Our only way to temporarily curb the use is to remove and store the baskets. It was a tough decision to make, but we want to put the health of our community first and we have deemed it necessary. We will be removing the baskets today and placing a course closed sign on hole 1. We will put the baskets back in after the Governor has given the all clear. It will still be fine for individuals to walk and hike the property, we only want to reduce the recreational gatherings. With thanks from Adam Tullis with Whatcom Disc Golf Club.
