(La Porte, IN) - Public input is still being sought on establishing a disc golf course in La Porte.
The La Porte Parks and Recreation Board is considering a proposal for a nine-hole disc golf course at Kesling Park. If it’s built and becomes popular, La Porte Parks and Recreation Department Superintendent Mark Schreiber said another disc golf course at a different location could become an option worth exploring.
“We can look at the potential of putting another one in another spot in town. Near Fox Park may be an option in the future. The Heart of La Porte plan calls for Fox Park to expand so if we have expanded land available to us to the north of the park, that might be a good use of the land to do a more competitive maybe 18 hole course." "We want to see what the interest is with this nine-hole course which would be more of a beginners course," he said.
Schreiber said public comment is accepted until the park board takes a vote, possibly later this month.
Disc golf involves tossing a Frisbee-like device into a basket fastened to a pole in the fewest throws possible.
