Disc golf course opens at MetroParks Farm in Canfield
There's a new type of sport to play at Mill Creek MetroParks Farm.
A ribbon-cutting was held Tuesday at 10 a.m. for the opening of the new MetroParks Farm Disc Golf Course on Columbiana Canfield Road in Canfield.
The 9-hole learn-to-play course and an 18-hole championship course is set up with unique settings of wooded areas, meadow and pond landscapes.
The project is part of the MetroParks five year capital improvement plan and was funded by an ODNR grant.
The object of disc golf is to get the disc into the basket in the least amount of throws.
"It is two courses. An 18-hole challenging forest course that is predominantly wooded through meadows and across the pond and everything across the farm. The 9-hole field course is designed to be a learn to play course," said Justin Rogers, Mill Creek MetroParks Planning Manager.
The disc golf course is a par 60 and about 6,000 feet long.
The course is free and open from dawn to dusk.
Players do have to bring their own discs.
