Default NYC disc golf?

I'm going to NYC in 2 weeks and I wonder if there is any disc golf stores close to NYC. I've tried googling, but can't really find anything specific. I also looked around for courses on Udisc, it seem like there is none in the city, is this true?

Thanks fpr heψε

From what I've seen, NYC is a disc golf wasteland. Enjoy the hustle and bustle, then go to some other area to play.

Trying to do anything outdoors in NYC is likely as fun as getting hit over the head multiple times with a hammer.

Jogging in Manhattan offers some decent sight seeing. Hop on and off buses and subways as you see fit. Kept me occupied on old visits with pretty much coach potato friends.

Leonard Park in Mt Kisco is the closest basket course to the city. https://www.dgcoursereview.com/course.php?id=1473

I asked the same thing last year when I went to NYC. No disc golf in the city that I could find. Honestly, though my five days there weren't nearly enough time to do all the stuff I had hoped, even without disc golf. It's one of the greatest places I've ever been with so much to do and see and great food and awesome bars. Take lots of money and enjoy your trip!

Heard there is a boring course on Long Island. When I was at Mt Kisco, the sign said residents only and exit only. I drove in anyway and the cop told me don't do it again. (This was in the 90's), hopefully it's different now. Warwick a top 10 course IMHO is 60 miles west and totally worth the time to get there.

There is so much to do in NYC that you'll probably forget about disc golf for a while. I suggest going to the Museum of Natural History for your outdoor fix. Go to Warwick if possible, it is far from the city, but it is still one of the best courses in the US. If you are limited to train travel, then Leonard Park, FDR, Veteran's may be your best options.
