West Virginia Disc Golf
With our hills and dense forests, West Virginia, and Marion County in particular, is an excellent environment for a rousing game of disc golf. With two premier 18-hole courses of our own — Seth Burton Memorial Disc Golf Course and Orange Crush, both located at Morris Park in Fairmont — and more than two dozen others within a two-hour drive, a round is always within reach. Top the day off with a renowned pepperoni roll, local craft brew or one-of-a-kind dessert, and you’ve got an ace. Come and discover the middle of everything.
Fuel up for an action-packed day with a cup of coffee and Overhang Oatmeal from Joe n Throw before heading to Morris Park in Fairmont to try your hand at one (or both) of the disc golf courses located there. After the last hole, grab world-famous pepperoni roll from Colasessanos before playing some golf of the miniature variety at Coal Country Golf & Batting Cages. Top off your day by heading to Rivesville for a stop at Assumption Records before sitting down with some cold beverages from Short Story Brewing and globally-inspired street food with Appalachian-sourced ingredients. Marion County has several types of lodging available so that you can get a good night’s sleep and head out for more adventures the following day.
Now that you’re rested, it’s time for the most important meal of the day! Head to DJ’s ‘50’s & ‘60’s Diner to enjoy over-the-top treats and burgers, because the nostalgic diner also serves breakfast all day. If you already tried out both of the disc golf courses in Fairmont on your first day, you could drive an easy 20 minutes north to Morgantown and play at Dorsey’s Knob Park .
