Smith Lake Farm is a destination disc golf course you don’t want to miss. Here’s why. The course: Smith Lake farm is a 90 acres lakefront farm located in the heart of the Comox Valley. The disc golf course runs through 40 acres of the property. Starting in pastures near the farmstead the holes snake into the forest for some challenging, par threes and par fours. Currently it finishes with some bomber lines in their 10 acre hayfield. The course is and will always be changing. The farm is a farm first and the cattle are moved from pasture to pasture (and the grass grows up) causing holes closures and openings as the living lawnmowers are moved around the property making for an interesting and ever changing layout. The course is not a pay to play course but a ‘buy farm goods to play’ course. Play golf. Bring home dinner. Win-win. The farm: The farm has cattle and an apiary (bees) and offers beekeeping lessons to all those staying on the farm. There is a tiny house you can rent year round and in the summer they have 6 glamping sites that are perfect for up to 4 friends or a family and some of the accommodations are dog friendly. Off- season camping is also available until mid May and after mid September. Not just disc golf: If disc golf isn’t your significant others thing - no worries - lake time, amazing bubble Sauna, nearby beaches, trails, farmers markets, great food and other experience in the City of Courtenay - only 15 minutes from the farm- mean that this place isn’t just a disc golf destination but ….

With that in mind, here are my suggestions for the top 5 reasons to visit Smith Lake Farm in short form: 1. A well maintained and well designed course suitable for all but with challenges for any level of player. 2. A swimmable lake with divable docks and a bubble sauna to warm up in before or after your swim. 3. On site activities that are both educational and fun for the whole family. (thinking the bee stuff here) 4. Close proximity to a sandy ocean beach, a world class network of mountain bike trails, and the shopping and dining experiences available in Cumberland, Comox and Courtenay. 5. A range of comfortable and tranquil accommodations from the Tiny House to Glampsites.

I would say this, the advantage of this is reaching the lower mainland discers and so should tailor to them. The big complaint I hear from those people is how crowded the courses are, apparently you sometimes have to wait 20 to 40 minutes in a line at Tee One just to get going. So how are you relieving this pain point for them? You are selling a quiet, tranquil and undisturbed experience. The course is not crowded, there are lots of enjoyable things for the non-discing family members and you can find the peace you need to just focus on the joy of playing disc golf here.

There are several compelling reasons to visit Smith Lake Farm for disc golf:

  1. Unique Setting: Smith Lake Farm offers a picturesque and distinctive setting for disc golf. Nestled in the heart of Vancouver Island, the farm spans 90 acres and features a beautiful lake, rolling pastures, second-growth forests, and even a 10-acre hayfield. The course takes full advantage of this diverse landscape, offering players a varied and visually stunning disc golf experience.

  2. Ever-Changing Layout: The dynamic nature of Smith Lake Farm's disc golf course sets it apart. As a working farm, the layout of the course evolves with the seasons and the movement of the cattle on the property. This means that each visit to the farm presents a fresh and unique disc golf challenge, keeping the game exciting and engaging for returning players.

  3. Farm-to-Table Experience: At Smith Lake Farm, the philosophy goes beyond disc golf. It's a working farm with gardens, happy animals, and a commitment to family farming. When you visit, you have the opportunity to support local agriculture by purchasing farm goods. The concept is "buy farm goods to play" - you can enjoy a round of disc golf while also bringing home fresh produce or farm-raised beef for a delicious, sustainable meal.

  4. Family-Friendly Atmosphere: Smith Lake Farm welcomes families and offers a range of activities to cater to all ages. While disc golf enthusiasts can enjoy the course, non-discing family members can engage in various on-site activities. They can learn about beekeeping through lessons, explore the farm, relax by the lake, or even stay in the cozy year-round tiny house or the glamping sites during the summer.

  5. Proximity to Nature and Local Attractions: Located near the ocean, forest trails, and charming farm stands, Smith Lake Farm allows visitors to immerse themselves in the natural beauty of the Comox Valley. Beyond disc golf, you can enjoy activities such as swimming in the lake, exploring nearby beaches, hiking scenic trails, and discovering the vibrant local culture and cuisine in Courtenay and surrounding areas.

In summary, Smith Lake Farm offers more than just a disc golf course. It provides a unique and evolving disc golf experience, a connection to sustainable farming, a family-friendly environment, and proximity to a range of natural and local attractions. It's a destination that combines outdoor recreation, farm-to-table experiences, and the beauty of Vancouver Island into a memorable and enjoyable visit for disc golfers and their families.
