Boardman Park announces disc golf course expansion and tournament
« Boardman Neighbors
The Boardman Park has announced the expansion of its disc golf course to 18 holes. An additional nine holes are scheduled to be completed by late Winter.
The holes will play through the wooded area of the park, located just east of the tennis courts. Each hole is densely wooded and provides water hazards and elevation changes, with two holes playing over McKay’s Run creek. This natural environment not only provides players with an appreciation of the beauty of nature, but also provides a greater challenge than the family friendly front nine holes. This will be the only disc golf course in Mahoning County to feature nine holes through a heavily wooded natural area.
Join the Boardman Park for the first annual Boardman Park Disc Golf Open on March 25 to celebrate the expansion of Boardman Park Disc Golf’s wooded nine. The tournament will be hosted by Mahoning Valley Disc Golf Association (MVDGA).
There will be two rounds of golf. Sign-in is at 8 a.m. and the first round starts at 9 a.m. Lunch break is from 12-12:45 p.m. and round two starts at 1 p.m. Players will be divided into three divisions depending on skill level: advanced, intermediate and recreational. Starting at 3 p.m., there will be side games like Ring of Fire Putting tournament, CTP throw off and a long drive competition.
Players will be able to register that morning for the tournament, however, MVDGA is asking the players to register in advance so they can properly prepare for the tournament.
