Disc Golf The area's only disc golf course is in Memorial Park and is open to the public. The course stretches almost 6000 feet through open grassy areas and rolling hills. There are no fees to use the course, however donations are encouraged at the first tee to help with maintenance and course improvements. The first hole starts just across the creek from the dog park on E.

Also, please do not cut, trim, or break any brush, trees, or vegetation. Those natural features add to the difficulty and challenge of the course.
