In addition to the open division, there are also several hobbyist divisions that pay in cash or merchandise. The last mini drew nearly 50 competitors.
The new DiscGolfPark marks a notable investment by the city in its efforts to attract regional tournaments to its flagship park.
Designed by 2009 PDGA World Champion Avery Jenkins, the new course features some of the best course infrastructure in the state.
Solid turf tee pads, brand new baskets and quality signage provide great perks that many other courses lack. The park also has two facilities at all times.
Each of the 18 tee boxes has a long (blue) and short (white) basket, so players always have the choice of a difficult game or a recreational game.
But that’s only half of what makes Case Community Park such a great place.
The course offers great views of the Arkansas River and the terrain flows faster than almost any other course in the area after a rainstorm. The city frequently mows the course, doing everything possible to provide pristine fairways.
It is also a great place for wildlife, as bald eagles can often be seen nesting, hunting, and perching in the mature poplar trees along the river.
“What makes (Case DiscGolfPark) unique is that although there is activity on the trails that line some of the holes, I think there is a good opportunity for people to feel isolated there. “said Edwards. “It’s a little more peaceful and quiet to go for a walk without a lot of noise and activity all around.
