The city’s disc golf course at Bergman Park is officially open.

The course currently has 12 holes, with an additional six to make a full 18-hole course expected to open next spring. The course utilizes many of the underused open areas of the park, as well as some of the wooden areas around Bergman Park.

Tournaments and leagues will be regularly held on the course, and playing on the course is free of charge.

“We are very excited to offer more recreational opportunities to residents,” said Dan Stone, city parks manager. “Having a high-quality disc golf course only enhances what we provide to residents and will draw in people from all over the region to play.”

“Adding more options for recreation for our residents is a major priority for my administration,” said Mayor Eddie Sundquist. “Disc golf is affordable fun for the whole family, and we are excited that we are able to have a course that will appeal to beginners and experienced disc golfers alike.”

Local disc golf ambassador Frank Besse was instrumental in making the course a reality.

“It has been great to work with the city to develop this fun and dynamic amenity,” Besse said. “This course will be a focal point for our local disc golf community.”

The city also partnered with Twin Tiers Disc Golf to apply for funding from the Ralph C. Wilson Foundation to secure funding for discs and portable baskets for the summer playground recreation program.

“We are excited to be spreading disc golf throughout the region through strategic partnerships,” said Twin Tiers Disc Golf president Rich Longer.
