Disc golf is similar to regular golf; however, instead of using golf clubs and balls aiming for a hole, disc golf players use throwing discs and aim for a target or basket. A 9-hole disc golf course is at 300 Butler Farm Road, near the Hamptons Golf Course.
Whether you prefer saltwater, freshwater, beaches or piers, Hampton can give you the perfect fishing experience. There is even a three-acre pond at Armistead Pointe Park where you can go shoreline fishing. It’s stocked with largemouth bass, bluegill, crappies and more.
