Disc golf course to open in Knox

Go see if Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett can toss a disc this coming Friday with the opening of a disc golf course in Powell.

Your county reporter once played disc golf, and lost about $20 worth of plastic in the woods. It was a short career. For those who like to play the game, here’s a link to disc golf courses around the community.

From a release:

Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett will join members of the Powell Business and Professional Association and representatives from the Knox County Health Department, Smoke-Free Knoxville and Knox County Parks and Recreation for the grand opening of a new disc golf course at Powell Station Park on Friday, July 1 at 10 a.m. The event is open to the public, and other elected officials may be in attendance.

 The 9-hole course provides a smoke-free, family-friendly outdoor space for Knox County residents to enjoy. In addition to being a fun place to get some physical activity, Smoke-Free Knoxville and the Knox County Health Department partnered with Knox County Parks and Recreation and the Powell Business and Professional Association to make the disc golf course a unique educational experience about the hazards of tobacco use.

 Several disc golfers will be there to demonstrate disc throwing, and Mayor Burchett and other guests will give it a try, too.
