The City welcomes our new groomer that will be grooming trails at the Anoka Nature Preserve and Green haven Golf Course. The trails will be groomed for the Disc Golf course as well at Green haven!

The Cedars of Green Haven, a winter disc golf course, debuts this winter.  The disc golf course is a full 18-hole course utilizing the elevated portion of the property on the west side. While the course offers a  challenging layout for the advanced level player, it is still enjoyable for the intermediate and novice players. Night and weekend disc golf is available through multiple leagues, as well as, free play.  Participants can enjoy delicious food and beverages at The Tavern at Green Haven during restaurant hours. The course is free to the public.

To keep track of your score throughout your game go to "UDisc" to create an account and to track your score at each hole!

No salting teepads or anywhere on the course, ever.
Keep off greens, grab your disc and throw outside of ropes.
