DISC GOLF

READY. AIM. THROW. Disc golf has quickly become one of Cheatham County’s most popular recreational activities. The county is home to two disc golf courses – one in Burns Park in Kingston Springs and one in John C. Preacher Poole Park in Ashland City. Both 9-hole courses were designed by HB Clark, who has created nearly 100 courses in nine states. The Kingston Springs course, located along the scenic Harpeth River, opened in 2015. The Ashland City course, which weaves its way around the park’s walking track, opened in 2019. Disc golf, in a nutshell, is a game that plays and is scored like traditional golf, but rather than hitting balls with a club into holes, players throw flying discs (similar to Frisbees) from a designated tee to a metal, chained basket known as the “hole.” Disc golf is an excellent form of recreation that gives people a reason to get out and be active. It is played all year round and can be played casually, or as a highly competitive sport. Burns Park • 501 Park Street • Kingston Springs, TN John C.
