Westfield, IN - Asa Bales Park

Approval has been granted for a disc golf course at Asa Bales Park in Westfield, IN. It will likely be a 9-hole layout, perhaps with alt tees and A/B pins. The park has two areas that will hold 4 to 5 holes each, connected by a short walk along a central creek. There is also a smal woods that could be used if clearing labor is available. It's a Boy Scout Eagle Project, to raise funding, materials and labor for the course. I will be doing the design.

If you wish to donate $$, material or labor for this course, please contact the Westfield Parks Dept., Superintendent Melody Jones. If this goes quickly, the course could be in the ground this fall. If not, it will be next spring.

This will be a great starter course for the Westfield community. And btw, the course is acrosss the street from Westfield HS and virtually next door to the Middle School. This will help them practice to defend their 2012 Indiana St HS Disc Golf Championships, Team and Individual Titles!

Every time I turn around you've got a new course approved or being installed. Congrats on all the hard work paying off!

Thank you Sir. And a Good Job to you, for the US Masters! Wish I could have made it down there.

It's a matter of persistance. They ultimately say yes just to make you go away!

Years & years of persistance! 6 or 7 last year and that many this year, correct?

We need to get a course put in Southeastway Park. I am tired of driving to the north side of town.

Our Eagle Scout is continuing to gather sponsorship $$ for the course. The high school has also expressed intrest in supporting the course. (Their disc golf team won both the Individual and Team, Indiana State DG Titles this year.) There is a small wooded area that may also be available which would allow for some more design options and a little more hole/shot variety. Unless a large, single source donor emerges soon, it looks like we will be doing construction in the spring.
