We are proud to announce the expansion of our disc golf course at the Sysonby Acres Leisure Site. We have installed nine new ‘baskets’, taking it from a 9-hole to a competition-standard 18-hole course, ready to host national tournaments and disc golf events.

Played on a regular golf course with ‘baskets’ instead of holes, disc golfers throw flying discs from the tee towards the hole, and try to get their disc into the basket with the fewest throws possible. The game follows the same principles as regular golf but without the expensive equipment or club membership fees.

Jason Stokes of Disc Golf 4 All (DG4A), a non-profit organisation promoting disc golf as one of the fastest growing sports in the world, said, “Melton Mowbray Town Estate has been tremendously supportive of disc golf, and after opening the 9-hole course in 2022, it has now extended it to the full 18 holes following our recommendation. Sysonby Acres is now the only tournament-level course in the whole county. The course, with its mature trees, delightful landscaping, and extensive facilities, has proved popular with players from all over the country, and we’re all looking forward to our first tournament on the full course very soon!”

Melton Mowbray Town Estate’s CEO, Den Rees, added, “Jason has been instrumental in bringing disc golf to Melton Mowbray, and his enthusiasm and determination have driven progress in expanding the course. Disc golf is a great sport – it’s inclusive, easy to play, enormous fun, and you don’t need to be an athlete or an expert to enjoy it. By extending the course at Sysonby Acres to 18 holes, we can now host national and even international tournaments, putting Melton Mowbray firmly on the disc golf map.”

You can simply turn up at Sysonby Acres and “pay and play” this family-friendly, inclusive and accessible game, or you can click here to book your game ahead of time.
