With the launch of Major League Rugby (MLR) in the United States, the rugby craze is in full swing in 2018 and Seattle Southside was fortunate enough to be selected as the home of one of the first MLR teams. The Seattle Seawolves finished 2018 in second place with a 6-2 record and they’re heading to the championship game in Glendale, Colorado. The Seawolves play all their home games at Starfire Stadium and have sold out every game so far, so get your 2019 tickets ahead of time!

Follow along with Travel Enthusiast Dalia Colon as she tries out several sports in Seattle Southside like disc golf in North SeaTac Park and golf at Foster Golf Links.

Disc Golf in SeaTac and 18-Hole Golf in Tukwila

Seattle is known for its professional teams but you don't have to be a pro athlete to try your hand at sports in Seattle Southside. Let's check out North SeaTac Park for a game of disc golf it's like regular golf but it's played with frisbees instead of clubs and balls. There's plenty more to do here at North SeaTac Park from botanical gardens and Japanese gardens to BMX bike tracks for the adventurous and beautiful walking trails. Now let's travel a short distance away to another popular golf destination, Foster Golf Links. It's a public course where you can enjoy 18 holes in the fresh air. It's ideal for beginners because it's a shorter course at the same time it's challenging enough for experienced golfers because it's so narrow. It's lined with trees and it just exemplifies the beauty of the Pacific Northwest.
