Disc golf is not a new fad or trend – it has been a well established pasttime for over 30 years.

The first permanent disc golf course was established at Hahamonga Park in Pasadena, CA, and now the sport has spread to almost 5100 courses in the US alone. The Disc Golf Community is a solid network of dedicated fanatics, and a course in the city of Niles would be an absolute perfect addition to the culture of nature/recreation in the city's parks.

SO WHY DISC GOLF?

Inexpensive

Not only is disc golf cheap to play, but it also is relatively easy on city budgets. Installation is minimal with baskets and tee-off locations. Parks are prime locations for disc golf courses. They are open to the public, and not paying for play will bring the community together. A disc golf club, as well, can bring in money to pay for disc golf tournaments and merchandise, requiring no funds from local government.

Economy

Unused parks are a drag on the community and a pull on the economy. Utilizing your park brings revenue in the form of visitors. But hey, if you don’t want to charge for admission, visitors also bring revenue to local businesses.

All Inclusive

Unlike many sports, disc golf is openly available to everyone including the visually impaired, deaf, and disabled. Leveled courses are easily adapted to be wheelchair accessible, and, through the encouragement of friends and family, people of all abilities can be accommodated.

Community

If you haven’t seen your aunt Betty for the past five years, even though she lives three doors down, now is the time to take her to the course. Disc golf has the unique benefit of bringing the community together. Disc golf can be played as a single- or multiple-player game.

All Seasons

Easy access to a disc golf course makes it possible to play in all types of weather, including snow and rain. If you feel uncomfortable with the temperature, practice on the field or in a disc golf club. There is always something to work on.
