Rose Park is having a grand opening June 22. The park is located in McLouth, Ks. McLouth is located on Hi. 16. Turn North on Union. Then West on Gertrude. Just after getting on a gravel road the parking for the course is the first left. The tee signs are at the rear of the tee area and currently has a 9 hole set up but already looking to expand to make a full 18. Don't forget the tick spray for out here. The parks department is giving full support and offering a free cook out with volunteers demonstrating the sport. I believe DD is also going to be a part of this. One of the kids I met last night just happens to be related to the Eklunds. He's a darn good player already and I think ready for tournament play. I would consider the course to be very challenging for a beginner. Your participation to help grow the sport will be greatly appreciated.
They formed a disc golf club for the school called Disc Dogs or Dawgs not sure of their spelling. They are looking to be the first school in Kansas to form a disc golf team and ask other schools to form teams to compete with. They are getting solid response from the community and schools they are contacting. The gentleman responsible for creating all this interest is Greg Justice.
More details to come.
