Rabbit Flats Disc Golf Course in Thousand Oaks

RabbitFlats_logo.jpg

In 1969, George Sappenfield, Recreation Supervisor for Conejo Recreation and Park District, introduced a new game by conducting the first official Disc Golf Tournament. He contacted Wham-O Manufacturing and asked for help with the event. Wham-O supplied frisbees for throwing and hula hoops for use as targets. And with so Disc Golf was born right here in the Conejo Valley! Since then, Disc Golf has exploded with its own professional organization of nearly 40,000 members, tournaments worldwide, and courses across the world.
