SUMMER IS OVER...ITS DISC GOLF TIME!
Summer 2018 is over, it's just about too cold to enjoy the beach, which means it's disc golf time on Nantucket! Fresh off another successful Nantucket Disc Golf Open, the course is looking beautiful and the foliage is fading, making it easier to find errant shots...fall is the nicest time of year to be out on the course.
NEW ENGLAND TEAM CHALLENGE ADULT LEAGUE STARTS
October 13 marks the first match of the 2018 New England Team Disc Golf Challenge, as 14 players from team Rhode Island visit to take on Team Nantucket.

EXCITING ANNOUNCEMENT - TWO NEW ISLAND KIDS TEAMS!
Nantucket Disc Golf is creating two new island disc golf teams. The goal of these teams is to provide the kids on the island every opportunity to learn the great sport of disc golf on our world class course, and should they want to excel, provide them every opportunity to do that as well. We have a junior on the island now who has the ability to be one of the best, and there are undoubtedly more out there. You never know until you try! In creating these teams, Nantucket her Golf is providing an outlet for health and growth at a world class facility!
