Students Enjoy Playing On New Disc Golf Course
A new disc golf course at Center Springs Park has proven to be popular, and among those who have played the course were students from the Manchester Transitional Center.
“It was a lot of fun,” said Savanna Catlett, one of the students who took part.
Emily Biggins, a special education teacher for the Transition Center, planned the activity as part of their community based recreation.
As noted in this Hartford Courant article, the course cost about $5,000 -- mostly to pay for the metal baskets that serve as holes.
Anyone who wants to play can borrow discs at the Parks and Recreation building on Lodge Drive. (And by the way, these discs are smaller and denser than the more familiar Frisbees.)
The course consists of nine holes/baskets laid out over 3444 feet of the park .
“It was a perfect fall activity that was enjoyed by all,” Biggins said.Added student Ken Amoaning: “We can’t wait to do it again.”
