Windsor, Ontario

I've been spending a lit of time lately in Windsor, Ontario, just across the border from Detroit as my girlfriend lives there. I noticed there is not a single course in the area, while SE Michigan has a plethora to say the least.

The parks department of Windsor informed me that there is no demand for a course there. I would like to change that.

If you are a disc golfer and live in or near Windsor I want to hear from you. Let's join forces and get a course installed. Malden Park is my #1 choice as it has plenty of space and features the largest hill in Essex County. It is visible from the Ambassador Bridge so Detroiters would also be close enough to enjoy the course.

Please, if you know anyone in the Windsor area who would be interested in a course then please contact me via this website. The City of Windsor needs disc golf, they just don't know it yet.

I stopped going to Canada when they banned smoking. But I did enjoy RPT and Studio 11 back in the day.

I travel through Windsor every year and I agree, they need a disc golf course. There's nothing in Southern Ontario until you get to St. Thomas. But they don't just need any course in Windsor... they need a big, tough, championship quality course. There are lots of courses in the Detroit area, but you have to go all the way to Ann Arbor to find a course rated 4 or better. So a high quality course in Windsor it would be a huge draw from all over the area if there was an incredible course in the area, especially come tournament time.

Best of luck!

There is no disc golf in Windsor yet...

I believe I have started talking to the correct people on getting ideas, support, and design ideas:
So far, I have received two price quotes, a letter of intent for support from PDGA, and a suggestion to write a Trillium grant application to pay for most of the capital costs to install a course...

What is missing is at least three other Windsor-based or Windsor-interested disc golfers to form a non-profit club as part of ODSA... Is there anyone else out there that could help get a course in the ground in Windsor?

WSK

P.S. Suggestions for potential disc golf sites in Windsor are welcome... (Malden Park, anyone?)

Met with the town of Tecumseh today, and things went REALLY well. Just need a few things to go our way, but at least we have some allies in high places. Please PM me if you want to get involved! Cheers!
