The grand opening of a disc golf course at Riverside Park’s takes place on Saturday, April 14.
“Disc golf is a combination of ultimate frisbee and golf,” explains Ian Ferguson, supervisor of turf and sports fields for the City of Guelph, in a news release.
“Players move from hole to hole, trying to get their disc into the disc golf basket at each hole. The goal is to complete the course in as few throws as possible.”
The grand opening event will kick off at noon in the east end of the park off Speedvale Avenue, behind the fire station.
Registration will happen as participants arrive. There will be a brief information sessions on how to play disc golf, and purchase discs from The Bookshelf, Action Mobility, Guelph Disc Golf Club and more.
City staff will stagger entry so everyone gets a chance to test the course.
“We’re really excited to open this disc golf course,” says Ferguson “This project is a good example of how good ideas can be put to great use for the benefit of our entire community.”
The course is free for anyone to use on a first-come, first-serve basis.
