A COMMUNITY group is running a free outreach day in Longford Park to teach people how to play disc golf.

The event, on Saturday June 7th, will take place to gather support for proposed plans to build a ‘disc golf’ course in Longford Park on the site of the disused pitch and putt course.

Disc Golf is similar to ‘regular’ golf with the main distinction being that it is played with a frisbee disc and a basket. Despite this, the principles of the game are exactly the same. There is very little equipment or barriers to entry making it perfect for all ages.
