Visitors are invited to attend Grand Opening event on أغسطس 26th
MILTON, ON – As of أغسطس 17th, disc golf enthusiasts and outdoor adventure seekers can give Conservation Halton’s new ‘Summer 9’ disc golf course a spin at Kelso Conservation Area (Kelso). The course was designed in partnership with Chainlink Disc Golf to provide an unforgettable gaming experience for both beginners and seasoned players alike.
Disc golf is similar to traditional golf, but instead of using clubs to hit a ball into a hole, a disc is thrown towards a basket. The goal is to get the disc into the basket in the fewest tosses or ‘strokes’ possible. The player with the lowest total strokes for the entire course wins. Players can easily keep score by downloading the UDisc App.
The course’s unique layout highlights the park’s diverse terrain. It incorporates elevation changes and a blend of long and short holes to accommodate players of various skill levels. Each hole is equipped with 2-tee placements and is supported by a 3-hole, 3-tee practice course to try putting, pitching, and driving.
“Conservation Halton prides itself on connecting people with nature,” said Craig Machan, Director, Parks & Operations, Conservation Halton. “Our ‘Summer 9’ disc golf course at Kelso gives visitors another way to experience our parks and get active outdoors. Disc golf is a fun activity, and it’s suited to all ages and abilities. Plus, here at our course, players will get to enjoy a round with the incredible Niagara Escarpment as their backdrop. We’re excited about this addition and look forward to hosting visitors for a round soon!”
Park visitors can enjoy Kelso’s disc golf course free of charge during regular park hours in spring, summer and fall. The course is also available to reserve for leagues, tournaments, corporate events, and school trips.
Individual players and groups can rent a 3-disc set that includes one putter, one mid-range, and one driver. Players can also choose to purchase their own 3-disc starter set, single discs, and/or disc bags at Kelso’s Trailhead Sports Rental & Retail Store (Trailhead), that include local retailers like: Innova, Discmania, Latitude 64, and GripEq Bags.
Conservation Halton will be celebrating the Grand Opening of the new disc golf course on السبت, أغسطس 26th from 9 am to 5 pm at Kelso. Visitors are encouraged to test out the course or register to compete in Mixed Singles and Doubles, or Men’s and Women’s Doubles.
