PATRICK PARK DISC GOLF COURSE Contact: Email: padg.yorkton@gmail.com Disc golf has become a popular sport and recreation around the world, and interest locally is expanding rapidly with Yorkton the hub of the activity regionally. In Yorkton, Patrick Park Disc Golf Course is the venue to experience the sport, located off King Street. Opened in June 2011, as nine basket course it has proved a challenge for experienced disc golfers with trees to manoeuvre through from almost every tee box, and yet forgiving for beginners since the course does not have hazards where discs can be lost. The original nine at Patrick Park is a par-27 and covers 2,379-feet. The experience was expanded in 2015, through an initiative spear-headed by local players, and supported by the City, to install a set of nine alternate tee boxes, which affords players an opportunity to play a ‘back-nine’ with new approaches to the existing baskets. The ‘back-nine’ is a par-33 and extends the course by 3,037-feet, by utilizing some new disc golf features, in particular several mandatories, specific features a player’s disc must pass around in a particular direction – leftor-right of the marked feature. And now, in the spring of 2020 the course will grow again, with nine baskets being added around the base of the city water tower and across the street through the hills of Rodney Ridge. The changes in elevations will give disc golfers a very different set of challenges. To promote the growth of the sport players are encouraged to come out Tuesday evenings from May through September. It is a night for players of all skill levels, with more experienced players more than happy to help beginners get a feel for the sport. For those with a competitive edge Yorkton’s fourth annual tournament will be held Sunday, August 30. The Yorkton course is one of those under the banner of the Parkland Association of Disc Golf. The Association represents more than 20 courses – all within an easy 125 km radius drive of Yorkton. In 2019, several courses grew from tonals to baskets including Sandy Beach on Good Spirit Lake and Asessippi Beach and Campground north of Russell, MB. New basket courses were installed at Churchbridge and Sun Hills Resort near Togo. To help promote disc golf and the growing number of courses the PADG created its tournament series. These events are very beginner player friendly, but participants will earn points toward yearend recognition. For more information on tournaments email padg.yorkton@gmail.com. More events will be announced as the season continues. To stay connected with disc golf head to Facebook, search Disc Golf Courses of the Parkland and join other enthusiasts, or at http://dulok44.wixsite.com/parklanddiscgolf.
