Disc golf course at Kesling to be dedicated Oct. 16

 

Join the City of La Porte Park and Recreation Department and Healthcare Foundation of La Porte for a dedication celebration of the Kesling Park disc golf course from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 16.

The ribbon cutting will take place at 11:15 at the first hole (just east of the 18th Street parking lot), followed by a skills clinic for anyone interested in learning how to play disc golf. The celebration will also include music, refreshments and giveaways.

The nine-hole course was designed and installed by Brian Cummings, a member of the Professional Disc Golf Association Hall of Fame. Cummings has designed several disc golf courses throughout the region and has played in tournaments across the country. Local disc golf enthusiasts contributed to the design and volunteered with the course installation.

The Healthcare Foundation of La Porte funded the course installation.
