Recreation District #1 is pleased to offer "The Pines” Disc Golf Course at Pelican Park.
Disc golf is played much like traditional golf. Instead of a ball and clubs, players use a flying disc, or Frisbee®. The sport was formalized in the 1970's, and shares with "ball golf" the object of completing each hole in the fewest number of strokes. A golf disc is thrown from a tee area to a target which is the "hole", an elevated metal basket. As a player progresses down the fairway, he or she must make each consecutive shot from the spot where the previous throw has landed. The trees, shrubs, and terrain changes located in and around the fairways provide challenging obstacles for the golfer. Disc golf can be played by all ages. Disc golf usually is played just for fun but there are also tournaments for those desiring competition.
The course will be located at the north end of the Park in the tree areas. The course will be open for first come, first serve play except when rented for tournaments.
Special thanks to volunteers Josh Edwards and Mike Kernan for their expertise in helping the District plan and build this course.
