Gateway Arch Grounds Temp Course

Postby gregwil2 on Wed Jun 11, 2014 11:55 am

Haven't heard much about this. But sounds like there will be a temp course set up at the fair grounds this Saturday June 14th from 9am-2pm.

St. Louis Disc Golf Club - This club will set up a mini disc golf (Frisbee golf) course on the park grounds.

Yeah, not sure what they means. I would think (hope) it would just be short 100'-150' for each hole and not a actual "mini" course using minis instead of real discs.

The club was invited to set up a booth and a few practice baskets as part of their "Get Outdoors St. Louis" program. It's nothing of much interest to anyone who already plays disc golf at all. We're just there to show people who have never played before what disc golf is about. The event is for showing people what kind of exercise they can get outdoors and do for free in St. Louis.

That's awesome! You can understand the attraction of playing 9 holes on the arch grounds... That would be one of those "once in a lifetime" type things.

Disc Up,
A wonderful day today at the Saint Louis Riverfront today.
Over 60 pictures on the LAKER league facebook page, well over 200 people showed interest at the tent by taking propaganda and paraphernalia (mini's). 5 starter sets, (3 disc and a bonus) were given out to the low score every hour and we probably had 75 or so players. Thank you RCF and LAKERS for making this a success.

8-)
Fly long & prosper!

Yessir! Thanks for the help out there Bruce. It was an epic success in my eyes. I think we really turned quite a few people on to DG today and had some real fun showing them the game. The little 9 hole course turned out to be great fun and pretty challenging for a beginner course - super scenic too.

I hope we get invited again.
