A new course opened up in Morinville for the trending sport of disc golf.
There was a demonstration of the new disc golf course at Montreux Park in Morinville today (September 27).
Disc golf is very similar to regular golf, except you throw special disks at a basket instead of using golf clubs.
"We've seen how successful this is in the region and we want to make sure that we're diversifying sport within the community," said Tyler Edworthy, Morinville sport and recreation coordinator. "This is another option for residents to use to go out and have a recreational opportunity."
The course is ready to use but the town will be making a few more additions.
"We're still developing the site. We're gonna evaluate the launch areas and we're adding in 69 trees from Nature Kids," said Edworthy. "We're also putting in somewhere between 25 and 30 fully grown trees as well on the site."
Disc's are available for rent at the Morinville Community Cultural Centre, the course is maintained by the town and is free for the public to use.
