Disc golf course in Tishomingo

By  | 

Tishomingo outdoor enthusiasts may soon have a new sport to take up at Pennington Creek Park.

A 9-hole disc golf course was recently proposed by one resident...an idea that City Manager, Jack Yates, says would be a great addition to the area.

"It's just another option for things to do while you're in Tishomingo whether you live here or visit."

Yates hopes that this course will not only attract disc golf lovers in Tishomingo, but in surrounding areas as well.

"It'll be a draw for area disc golfers and as well as attracting a little bit more interest in the city for something that we like, which is recreation."

Yates says this course would draw interest from all different age groups.

"Probably eight to about 80, and that's not a cliche. And by that I mean if you can throw a Frisbee, you can play disc golf."

The course would be built along the outskirts of the park. Yates says the city would pay about 400 dollars toward construction and the resident who proposed the project is willing to foot the rest of the bill.
