I have enough disc for everyone!
Leisurely stroll from hole to hole, slinging discs around a free nine-hole disc golf course geared toward beginners.
"The course is close, fun, you can get in two rounds in a short amount of time.
It allow people to get out and stay active for free.
Disc golf is follows the principles of regular golf: a player stands on a concrete pad about 200 feet away from the hole and throws or drives a disc up the fairway until a final toss or putt lands in the hole, a metal basket. The object of the game is to complete the course with as few throws as possible.
The half-mile-long course, designed by World Champion Disc Golf Design, replaced a chunk of land that wasn't being used. The course officially opened the last week of January and the city spent about $9,500, including labor and equipment cost.
"It's a nice use of space that leaves a minimal footprint on the land.
The course is open daily. Discs may be checked out at the center during office hours: 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday, 11:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday, 4 to 9 p.m. Wednesday and 4 to 8 p.m. Thursday.
