A new 18-hole disc golf course is nearing completion on the Dodge City Community College (DC3) campus. Located mainly around the residence halls and Lake Charles, the new course will be open to students, faculty and staff—as well as members of the community.
The course, which will be known as Conquistador Park Disc Golf Course, has been in development for more than a year, Christina Haselhorst, DC3 Foundation Director, said. After Haselhorst discussed the idea with college administration, potential donors, and DC3 Head Groundskeeper, Jared Stevens, a plan began to take shape, she said.
“We are excited to see that the installation for Conquistador Park is finally happening,” she said. “The baskets are being installed first, and signage for each hole will be installed at a later date.”
Like most disc golf courses, DC3’s new course will be free to use and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis, Haselhorst said.
“Disc golf is a sport that can be a lifelong activity for people of all ages and abilities,” she said. “And the discs, which are relatively inexpensive, can be purchased practically anywhere.”
To play the 4,417-foot course, disc golfers will begin with hole No. 1 on the west side of campus near the Lewis Technology Center building, where there is ample public parking. They will then head south, eventually skirting around Lake Charles, and then back to the area where they started for hole No. 18.
Conquistador Park is being sponsored by the Greg and Linda Goff Family, who continue to display extraordinary generosity to DC3. Although the course is expected to be completed in September, the Foundation is still accepting donations for the project that would allow for later course expansions, such as sponsored benches, additional signage, named holes, and additional shrubs and trees—for beautification and for course obstacles. Dynamic Discs assisted in the design of the signage and provided a small sponsorship as well.
