Disc golf course coming to Crowley’s Ridge College

CRC acquired the equipment to erecta Disc Golf program beginning Spring 2021

You may be wondering “what is disc golf?” Well, we are here to tell you. 

Disc golf is a game that is played much like regular golf but instead of hitting a ball with clubs into a hole, you throw discs into a metal basket. Another way disc golf differs from regular golf is that the equipment to begin playing is much cheaper and there are typically no course fees. 

Given the current health crisis, many people across the country have flocked to learning and playing disc golf as a means to staying active while in a safe environment where social distancing practices are easily managed. We here at Crowley’s Ridge College have seen the benefits of disc golf and want to provide the same opportunities and experiences so many others around the world have been able to take advantage of. 

We have acquired 18 baskets and you can expect to see the first course in Paragould’s history installed within the next few months. The course will be used by our students and the Paragould community as a safe, fun outdoor recreational activity as well as a teaching tool in our health and PE department. On top of this, the college will also have the opportunity to provide the students with a new club activity and we hope to partner with the area school districts to be involved in similar activities. 

The course will be installed over the coming months and we are planning on a Spring 2021 grand opening.
