Life Beyond the Lake: New Disc Golf Course and More!

Though Lake Keowee’s endless beauty offers boating and water activities all year long, The Reserve at Lake Keowee community’s amenities stretch beyond the water to heighten the fun and relaxation for members, residents, and guests.

The Reserve’s staff is constantly working to bring new activities to the community. The newest addition to the lineup is the Great Lawn Disc Golf Course. The course is par 3, which means each person gets 3 chances to land a disc in one of the chain nets.

Think you have what it takes to win this competitive frisbee game? Simply go to The Market to check out a set of discs, then head to the lower level of the Great Lawn. There, you’ll find the triangle course.

Enjoy playing in the center of The Reserve’s Village with beautiful views of the lake on one side and the green lawn and clubhouse on the other. Practice your hand-eye coordination and challenge yourself, or better yet, grab a few friends to see who has the best aim!

In addition to the disc golf course, The Reserve boasts a Jack Nicklaus signature golf course, a tennis center, a fitness and wellness center, miles of trails, manicured parks and playgrounds, and more!

Rain or shine, winter or summer, staying entertained at The Reserve is easy – fun activities are a no-brainer with all of the events offered to members. Whether it’s a yoga class, happy hour, a cookout, or one of the various educational tours, there is always something happening within the community.

Of course, this never stops the children and children-at-heart from making their own fun. You’ll often see a flag football or soccer game taking place on the sprawling Great Lawn. Now, who’s down for a game of disc golf?

What is Disc Golf at The Reserve?

If you haven’t heard of disc golf, or you’ve never had the chance to play, let us give you a quick idea of what to expect.

Disc golf works on the same rules that traditional golf does, except you’ll be playing with a set of frisbee like discs. When you check out your set of discs from The Market (or even if you buy your own), you’ll get a variety of discs, some of them are going to be heavier while others are much lighter. Just like in golf, you need to pick the right disc to meet the situation.

Instead of aiming your disc for a hole in the ground, you’ll be trying to hit a metal net on a pole (you might have seen them). The goal is to have your disc land in one of those nets in as few throws as possible. If you’re looking for a fun new hobby that gets you outside and moving, why not give disc golf a shot… or maybe a throw!
