Carlton Disc Golf Sanctuary
Last weekend one of our regulars skipped on over to the Disc Golf Sanctuary to check things out, and guess what? We weren't surprised at all, but he was. This is one very sophisticated disc golf course.
John Oberg and his son Jade, pictured here, were doing the course and both were impressed at the high standards. Well laid out, very well marked, and simply satisfying.
For what it's worth, there are two upcoming events you'll want to mark on your calendar. The first is during Carlton Daze. On Sunday morning July 31 at 10:00 a.m. there will be a competition event, with entrants divided by age group. The younger, from 0-15 (we doubt there will be many zero-year-olds) and the older group 16 and up. There's a $6.oo entry fee and fine prizes, plus a one dollar optional Ace Pot.
On August 20th there is another competition for serious disc golfers. The grand prize is a tournament bag with 8 discs and other prizes. The $25 entry fee will get you two discs and a key chain. There's a limited registration, so you may wish to inquire early here at Carlton Bike Rental.
For casual disc golfers, we have all the discs you need here, to rent or purchase. And treats to help you chill when you have finished a hot run in the sun, though much of this gorgeous course is through the trees.
You really owe it to yourself to check it out. It's summertime.
