Disc Golf is FREE for half term week

Explore our 9-hole disc golf course nestled in the beautiful woodlands of Trentham Gardens. Perfect for families and beginners, yet challenging enough for seasoned players, the course offers stunning views of the gardens and lake.

Enjoy a mix of skillful throws and strategic plays, like navigating the narrow woodland cut at ‘Knock the Wood’ (Hole 3) and the hidden basket at the dogleg left ‘Can’t See the Disc for the Trees’ (Hole 6).

Located just a 5-minute walk from the tearooms and other amenities, our course ensures a convenient and enjoyable experience. As the only purpose-built disc golf course in Stoke-on-Trent, it’s a must-visit for disc golf enthusiasts.

Combine your game with a full day out at Trentham, featuring an adventure playground, barefoot walk, boat and train rides, and more, all within our stunning historic gardens. Come and experience the fun!
