The disc golf scene is growing and now the sport can be added to the list of great activities to enjoy at Deep Creek Lake. “The Glades at Mesach Run” recently opened and is the first public course in Garrett County!
The Glades at Mesach Run Disc Golf Course is brought to you by the Deep Creek Lions Club. You can enjoy the course at the McHenry Community Park and the course design is great for most players. Beginners will probably have fun on the opening nine holes, while the intermediate-level players will find themselves hunting for birdies among the challenging shots in the woods later on.

Are There Other Disc Golf Courses Near Deep Creek Lake?
WISP Resort: A private 18-hole course in McHenry with mixed reviews. Due to the resort fee, it might be more of an option to consider if you are also doing other activities at the resort
Coopers Rock Disc Golf Course is also a new course that is a little over 30 minutes away
While it is very new, The Glades currently has the highest rating out of all of these options. There is enough variety to keep coming back to. It will be interesting to see how the course evolves in the coming years.
Have a Great Round!
On your next visit to Deep Creek Lake, hopefully you get the chance to sling some discs through the glades!
