The area's only disc golf course is in Memorial Park and is open to the public. The course stretches almost 6000 feet through open grassy areas and rolling hills. There are no fees to use the course, however donations are encouraged at the first tee to help with maintenance and course improvements. The first hole starts just across the creek from the dog park on E. Tuscola, approximately ½ mile east of Main St.
Players are asked to respect other activities (especially concerts and weddings) that may be occurring in the park throughout the year.
What is Disc Golf?
Disc golf is played much like traditional golf. Instead of a ball and clubs, players use a flying disc similar to a Frisbee®. The sports share the object of completing each hole in the fewest number of strokes. In disc golf, a disc is thrown from a tee area to a basket-type target which is the "hole". As a player progresses down the fairway, he or she must make each consecutive shot from the spot where the previous throw has landed. Trees, shrubs, creeks, and terrain changes provide challenging obstacles for the golfer. The hole is completed when the "putt" lands in the basket.
