ABOUT: Garnett Community Foundation.
Disc Golf Course
The Garnett Disc Golf Club is making an effort to build a “Teach a Child to Play Disc Golf Course.” We have looked into it and to our knowledge there are no disc courses like this in the USA. It is our desire to start a trend by building this course and having the media blow it into the rest of the USA. I have confirmation that we will have Professional Disc Golfers in attendance when we kick off the new course.
We are looking for people who are willing to sponsor a hole! for $300 we will place a permanent marker on the disc basket “Donated by” and your name or business. We are looking for 7 sponsors for 6 baskets (9 total in future) and a large sign that will teach our children how to play disc golf. This course will be used every day during recess and will also be used for Physical Education each year. It is our hope that you will consider getting behind this valuable health initiative. American children are spending far too much time behind the screen of a computer or video game. Will you help us make the fastest growing sport in the world a reality for our school in Garnett?
Donations can be made to the Garnett Community Foundation or The First Christian Church.
In the Fall it is also our clubs desire to give every child in GES a disc with the club logo and a bull pup logo on it. This is added incentive to encourage people to give it a try.

ABOUT THIS PROJECT: The North Lake Disc Golf Course will be PDGA approved at the highest level possible and its design is to last for many years to come. Disc golf is a free sport (no course fees charged) that promotes good exercise and family time. People around the country often travel hundreds of miles to play a good, creative course, and this one will qualify as just that. It also has the potential to generate a great deal of income to our local businesses as a good, well known tournament can generate 200-300 visitors who will need hotels and food while staying in town. This will also be a great asset to people living in Garnett and also a draw to potentially bring more people into our warm and fun community!
It is also our desire to see a Disc Golf Association started locally. The Long Cedar Disc Golf League is made up of local people who would be interested in the sport and help maintain and manage the course. The City has agreed to keep mowed and minor maintenance.
With the support of faithful sponsors, have made it possible to get 18 holes, baskets and signs on the ground in 2017. Labor was provided by many local volunteers and city employees. Funds for the first 18 holes was fund-raised and turned in to the Garnett Community Foundation. It is our desire to see the remainder up to 24 holes on the ground summer of 2018.
Please contact me if you have any questions or would like to make a donation to this project. Donations made payable to the Garnett Community Foundation in any amount or $500 to sponsor one of 24 holes. Donations can be dropped off at Garnett City Hall.
