New Disc Golf Course in Great Falls

Posted: Updated:
GREAT FALLS -

The day is finally here for the Great Falls Disc Golf Association to create the first ever Frisbee golf professional course here in Great Falls.

A dedicated crew is working on getting warden park ready for actual league play with a brand new course set up.

"It is very exciting! we basically turned Great Falls Warden Park, it was an actual 10 hole course we have turned it now into an 18 hole course," says club President, Drew Kent.

The Great Falls Disc Golf Association has gained the support it needed from the community to go ahead and bring a beautiful addition to the city of Great Falls.

"We had 18 businesses come out of the wood work and step up and help us put this dream to action. You know all these guys here are all locals who grew up here and they have all played this 10 hole course many many times and now to have it in 18 and to have all theses local businesses step forward and do this was just so nice and so great and we are so grateful," says Kent.

In fact the local disc golf club hopes to start the new course off with a big event to thank the community for their support and have a little fun on the new course.

"The signs and the grand opening will be Saturday the 14th from 12 to 6. We are encouraging everybody, all disc golfers to come down. we encourage everybody to bring 3 dollars and a can of food, we are going to be giving the can of food to the Food Bank. and the 3 dollars are to do the 3 different events that we planed which is closes to the pin, longest drive and then we are going to do a double scramble tournament," adds Kent.

In fact for more information on the brand new course you can go to www.greatfallsdiscgolf.com.
