The course is now officially OPEN for play. There is no charge to play and you do not need to book tee times. We do ask that you pack out what you pack in and if you see any garbage on the course, please pick it up. This course is for everyone and so we ask that everyone helps out in taking care of this brand new, beautiful course that is David’s legacy.
The Parks Foundation team met with the DGR team today to update us on the status of the course, and go over plans for the grand opening. We’re getting so close and we cannot wait to have you join us!

We appreciate the continued support from the community and cannot wait to share this disc golf park with you!
Work started on the course last week with the den and nest sweep. Over 70 nests were discovered in the park!
The contractors are in and working today, with the first step being the parking lot. It’s so exciting to be in construction mode and the park will be complete before we know it!
