The idea for building a disc golf course at the park was brought to the Park Commission by Commissioner Bill Bradley, whose son is an avid player. In April 2017, construction on the course began with the clearing of brush and decaying trees, installing the baskets and tee boxes, and creating the signage. The course was completed just prior to an inaugural tournament held on August 13, 2017.
The course was constructed using only volunteer labor and donated funds. Especially helpful was a grant of $1,500 from NEFA - the New England Flying Disc Association. In order to maintain the course and park without using tax dollars, the Commission requests that players using the new course pay a usage fee of $5 per person per day.
The course has 18 baskets (aka “holes”). The first nine holes are shorter in distance, while the last nine are longer and more challenging, in order to accommodate both youth and adult players. We welcome you to come and enjoy the new disc golf course at Crystal Pond Park.
