The 2020 PDGA Junior Disc Golf World Championships will feature six disc golf courses:
Note: pars and distances will vary depending on age group.
(2172 feet, Par 27) Hammond Park is a short technical nine-hole course installed permanently in 2017 specifically for Junior Worlds. The holes range from 150 feet to 318 feet. The signature hole on this course is Hole 9 measuring 250 feet. Hole 9 requires a straight shot into a gap in a tree line with the basket set about 30 feet into the trees and on a steep ledge. The nine-hole layout will be used for several of the younger age groups but is a course enjoyed by Emporia residents of all ages!
