“City of Oak Ridge Youth Advisory Board Hosts Free Disc Golf Event”
On Sunday, November 24th at 2pm the Oak Ridge Youth Advisory Board will host a free Turkey Bowl Disc Golf event at Groves Park Disc Golf Course on Tuskegee Drive (former South Hills Golf Course site) as part of Oak Ridge’s Playful City USA initiative. Participants of all ages are welcome to try this sport which is growing in popularity. Free “Turkey Bowl” logo discs will be provided to participants while supplies last.
“Disc Golf is growing in popularity and it is a great activity for families. We have two courses here in Oak Ridge and it is free to play, 365 days a year,” Recreation and Parks Supervisor Matt Reedy, said. “At Carl Yearwood Park, we have a small, but challenging nine-hole course. At Groves Park you will find a mix of open and wooded 18 holes on 46 acres of land.” Permission to participate is required for minors and forms will be available at the course.
The Turkey Bowl is hosted annually on the Sunday before Thanksgiving. The City YAB is sponsoring cash prizes for first, second, and third place for participants ages 18 and under. You can also find tips and rules information on the sport by visiting www.pdga.org.
