SPRINGFIELD, TENN. -- Disc golf is now available at J. Travis Price Park!
The new disc golf course was made possible thanks to a generous donation of equipment by Discin Disciples Disc Golf Group. The equipment donation was made possible thanks to monetary donations from Premium Food Delivery, Tim Ferguson, Bryan Hubrecht, Vallar Mortgage, Nashville Disc Golf Store, Mattress Express, and Phillip Dawson.
The Springfield Parks & Recreation Department installed the nine-hole disc golf course, with plans to add nine more holes by June 2021. An official course name will be unveiled in August.
Disc golf is very similar to regular golf. Players compete by throwing a disc at each target until they land a goal. The score is tallied based on how many throws it takes a player to reach each goal.
The new course is accessible to the public during park hours, dawn to dusk.
