KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Anyone up to toss the disc around?

A new study by The Trust for Public Land – an organization that generally advocates for parks and park land – shows Kansas City is in the top 10 in the country in the number of disc golf courses per 100,000 residents.

Kansas City, Missouri’s five disc golf courses – Blue Valley Park, Water Works Park, Swope Park, Cliff Drive Park and Hidden Valley Park – not to mention other golf courses across the metro led to the city’s lofty ranking.

The city’s ratio of roughly one disc golf park for every 100,000 residents is the same as Anchorage, Alaska.

Tulsa, Oklahoma tops the list with eight disc golf courses, for a ratio of 1.90. In pure numbers, Charlotte, North Carolina leads the way with 14 disc golf courses.
