REDWOOD CURTAIN

Humboldt State University (Arcata, CA)

redwood curtain

The Redwood Curtain is located along the western boundary of the Arcata Community Forest in the redwood-covered hill above Humboldt State University. Take 14th St. to Union St.—towards the Community Forest. Make a left on Union St and then right, up the hill, on 17th St. Hang a left at the "T" and you will find the course kiosk across from the Redwood Science Lab main entrance. This parking lot is for RSL and related guests only and parking is restricted until 5 pm. Any course visitors should, please, respect our neighbors and refrain from parking in the lot before 5 pm.

The Curtain dates back to the beginning days of HSU Ultimate Frisbee® when, over twenty years ago, you could find HSU students starting to throw plastic at distant objects through the woods—going to show that some things never change. These folks went on to form the impetus for Par Infinity Disc Golf Club and were the first stewards of disc golf in Humboldt County.

The Redwood Curtain is an 18 hole course. All par is 3, with many out-of-bounds opportunities, including up-a-tree and water. If you land on a stump, play from your lie without a penalty, this is our local "stump rule". The "fern rule" is always in effect.

Don’t step on plants when you walk or play your lie! This course is a rare beauty and represents a one-of-a-kind opportunity to golf beneath a canopy of redwoods.

A guide is needed for first-timers. Random doubles on Sundays at 11:11 a.m. is a great time to get to know the course and meet local players.

THE RIVER

Mad River Pump Station #4 (Blue Lake, CA)

mad river

The Pump Station is a 9 hole course located along the Mad River between Arcata and Blue Lake. Visitors will find a restroom along with a picnic table for multi-use occasions. It can be reached by traveling along Giuntoli Ln., taking the left at the “T” onto West End Rd., left onto Warren Creek Rd., and left into the large gravel parking lot.

This park is also commonly used as a starting point for water excursions onto the Mad River. The Pump Station course is a culmination of partnership amongst the Water District, Par Infinity, and local residents.

Visitors are encouraged to respect all park-goers, neighbors, and signage for park rules.

The roads taken to enter the park are winding and narrow, and, for the safety of all persons on the road, all visitors are encouraged to use caution when coming to, and from, the Pump Station.

Each year, under the unique arrangement Par Infinity has entered into with the Water District to allow for the continued use of the park for disc golf as well as other recreation, Par Infinity provides exclusive funding and helps to organize many wonderful community volunteers to maintain this course.

STEELHEAD

Creekside Park (Willow Creek, CA)

Located in the town of Willow Creek, the Steelhead Course offers a uniquely challenging 9-hole course along Willow Creek itself.
