Edmonton's longest running winter festival!
Gander Disc Golf was born out of a love for the sport of disc golf. Why are they called Gander? At Rundle Park Disc Golf Course, their home course in Edmonton’s scenic river valley, players often share the sloped greens and rolling fairways with our winged friends known as Canadian Geese, the male variety being a gander. They chose the name in an effort to pay homage to their Northern roots and the place where they learned to love this sport.
The geese may have gone on winter vacation, but Gander Disc Golf has partnered with the Silver Skate Festival to give you an opportunity to play a few holes at Hawrelak Festival during this year’s festival. Here are a few pro tips from our friend Frisbee Rob to help you get started.
