Default Horizons Park - Winston-Salem, NC

The local club just got news about Horizons park, here's a short post from Forsyth County Parks and Rec: "We are currently in the process of securing a Master Plan for Horizons Park. In that plan, we hope to have a new course developed by a professional engineer. Until then, we are leaving the course as it is."

This could be really exciting, since they have some awesome hilly terrain and woods to work with.

Not to mention, the current old baskets are soon to be replaced with new baskets! They are in the barn as we speak!

Why not leave a fun beginner course in with the old baskets and add a more challenging layout in the more interesting terrain with the new ones?

"DGA Mach III Deluxe", they are in the barn. Somebody got a pic of them arriving at the course, it's on our page.

The county said the old baskets would like be sold at auction sometime. Not sure who would buy those things for anything besides scrap metal. Wish they would donate them to us.

Forsyth County won't let anybody do any work at the course, which really sucks. I am jealous of the UFO and Highland Hills guys that can do pretty much whatever they want.

That would be ideal. The course as it is now would only give a good course like maybe 3 holes at best in terms of the land available.

I hope that the professional engineer is a disc golfer or works very closely with disc golfers with experience in course design.

I totally share those sentiments. NC needs more open,grassy courses that are family friendly and fun to play. Most other parts of the country need less of those.

Is Forsyth Co. Parks & Rec aware that their course is the oldest in NC? Be kind of a shame to lose the original layout permanently.
