The city of Eugene is inviting the public to join at Alton Baker Park for free disc golf from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on three Thursdays: July 28, August 4 and August 11. Participants must bring their own disc.

Currently the city is considering a proposal for the addition of an 18-hole disc golf course in Alton Baker Park and officials want to test the site.

Eugene residents, from expert to novice, are invited to help test this potential course location. The temporary course will be set up east of the main parking area and a check-in table with score cards and instructions and a feedback survey will be provided by on-site staff at the starred location on the map above.

I was just there on August 11 and it was a ton of fun. I hope they schedule more dates like this in the future. It’s a great excuse to get some fresh air and meet up with other people in the community!
