In July 2013, the first disc golf course in the county opened at Springvale County Park. Disc golf is similar to traditional golf in how it is played, but instead of using a ball and club, the golfer uses a flying disc. The object of the game is putting the disc in the hole (basket) in as few throws as possible.
Disc golf provides a fun inexpensive experience while getting exercise outdoors. Since the 12-hole course opened, people of all ages, and from as far away as the Twin Cities have been playing at Springvale County Park. Funding for the course was provided through a Park Legacy Grant Award.
