Public disc golf course suggested at Holts Summit's Greenway Park

Public disc golf course suggested at Holts Summit's Greenway Park

May 15th, 2013 in News

Creation of a public disc golf course at Greenway Park in Holts Summit was proposed Monday night during a meeting of the Holts Summit Board of Aldermen.

Scott Elam, who said he represented disc golf clubs in Jefferson City and Camdenton, asked the board to consider building a public disc golf course in Greenway Park.

"There are a lot of people in Holts Summit who participate in disc golf and they would use the course in Holts Summit," Elam said. "It's a healthy outdoor sport and kids love to play as well as adults."

Elam asked the board to approve using from 18-25 acres of Greenway Park for a disc golf course. He said the same area could be shared by walking trails or mountain bike trails if desired.

"This area has the potential of being a championship course because of the natural terrain," Elam said. "We like rough wooded areas. A large area of the park is now unused and this would provide an attractive use for the park."
