O'Fallon, MO Disc golf course???

Postby mgriffin on Mon Jun 17, 2013 11:56 am

Over this past weekend I heard people talking about Fort Zumwalt Park getting a disc golf course. That's the park between K and Bryan rd. off Veterans Memorial. The park that has the Christmas lights set up and you drive through it. Anyway they said that a course is currently being built at that location. Can anyone confirm or have any solid info on it. Thanks

O'Fallon, MO Disc golf course???

Disc up,
Yes, I was watching the Saturday morning news ( I think channel 5) a month or 2 ago and they announced that a 18 hole course was going in and I believe they said by September of 2013. I had not heard any one or club say anything else about it so I only mentioned it to the LAKERS.
I was/am surprised that the St. Charles club had not mentioned it.

I did find an article online from the O'Fallon Post I believe that said that the park is getting a 9-18 hole Frisbee golf course. All it had was 1 sentence about it and said or gave no other details. The article was from Feb. 2013. I live down the street so I will drive through and see what it looks like and see if any thing has been done.

I drove through the park last week and I didn't see a thing that hint towards a course. No baskets, tees or disc like construction that I saw.

A little birdie told me that there will be a course there this year. No timeline is specifically set, but people have been chosen for design and installation. That is all I have.

I suppose this is official enough. Bummer that it won't be ready until next year, but still...new course!

Okay.......so........what's.....the....deal????
In the weekly RCF e-mail with tournament info, etc., etc., Fort Zumwalt Park was listed, & there was a link to a review on DG Course Review.com. Umm.......so the course is now in?? G-Flap's review mentioned yellow Innova Discatcher baskets (I thought I'd heard Gateway was doing this course?), although no mention of how many holes --- 9?? --- 18?? ---- :?

Is it supposed to be a semi-secret that the course is now installed? Again, what's the deal here??

Course is open. 18 holes. whites play at 5000 feet, reds 3400 feet. Course is marked fairly well with temp signs. From what I understand, baskets were purchased prior to Dave Mac being contracted for the design.
