Fly By Disc Golf is transforming DeMeritt Hill Farm in Lee NH into a New England disc golf destination.

The apple trees will be blooming and the views will be fantastic.  If you’ve never been to a Fly By Disc Golf event before they are geared toward new players and experienced alike. Included in your ticket you’ll be provided loaner discs and some basic instruction if you need it. The course features a full 18 holes with a lot of challenging but not discouraging terrain. You’ll be throwing up hill, down hill, through the woods, into the orchard, and even over two of the ponds on the property. DeMeritt Hill Farm is not only one of the best pick your own orchards but it is also the home of the world’s scariest haunted experience. Please consider them for a special event while the disc golf course is set up and after.

Fly By Disc Golf is a huge supporter of groups and places that value keeping land accessible for outdoor recreation. So it’s no coincidence that we’ve fallen in love with DeMeritt Hill Farm. They have a great trail system that is open to the public when the farm is open for visitors. A portion of every ticket sold will be set aside for the farm to use on maintenance and upkeep of the trail system.
