Attention Deerfield Community Park players - Below is a message from Darin Loughrey, the Community Services Superintendent about the disc golf course redesign. The Deerfield Community Park disc golf course will be closed July 27th and is planned to re-open December 1, 2015. Disc golf play is suspended during this time, please try the UCI course if your in the area.
The disc golf course at Deerfield Community Park will be removed and a new modified 9-hole course will take its place. The course is being modified to improve safety of park users and minimize discs from leaving the park and entering pathways, roads and resident properties. A community survey will be conducted in spring 2016 to evaluate impacts of the improvements.
The proposed timeline for the project is listed below:
The final of the four planned Deerfield Disc Gold Task Force meetings. Bill Sellin, Darin and myself met at 4:00 PM, walked around to redesign the shorter (executive) course using steaks to mark the tees and baskets. An effort was made to keep the course fun/slightly challenging, while making sure it was safe and adhering to the ideas discussed in previous task force meetings. At 6:30 PM when the meeting started, we walked the new course with the rest of the task force.
