Jericho Lake Park ● Barnes Road and Jericho Road, Montgomery, IL ● Directions
Disc golf is free, fun – and a great way to enjoy the outdoors. It brings new definition to “a walk in the park.” Try your hand at it some time!
The Fox Valley Park District’s Jericho Lake Course is a smartly designed layout traversing a beautiful landscape of mature trees and parkland, sandwiched between Jericho Lake Park and the Stuart Sports Complex.
Built in 2003, Jericho Lake’s 18 holes measure 4,133 yards from the amateur tees and 5,399 yards from the pro tees. Each hole is 100 to 300 yards in length and features a concrete tee pad to launch and hip-high, pole mounted baskets with cages as the disc’s ultimate destination.
Two Sets of Tees
Picturesque Blackberry Creek winds its way through the disc course, providing a backdrop (and water hazard) on six of the 18 holes. Two sets of tees allow the course to be played at varying lengths – amateur or pro – making the course appealing and challenging to golfers of different abilities.
Like a golf course, it winds strategically throughout natural hazards and barriers to test each player’s skill and mettle. Its natural beauty is an added attraction.
