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. This would be 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.
GAPP would like to make it possible to get 12 holes, baskets and signs on the ground in 2016. Labor would be provided by many local volunteers during the same time as the GAPP project (July 17-23). Funds for the first 12 holes will be 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 2017.
This project will also help our local school. Garnett Elementary School (GES) has a desire to use this course in the Physical Education Department for our children. Once this course is complete there will only be 18 holes for general game play. This is done so the tournament course will be new to all who play it. With approval from the school board we would like to set alternate locations behind GES where the remaining 6 baskets could set while the non-tournament course is set up.
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.
