Some residents have been worried about the environmental impact of the course and that trees would be cut down to build it.

This is the key here. People hear golf course and think we are going to make it ball golf. Disc Golf WANTS (and hits) trees. So hopefully I have good news tomorrow night.

New course proposed in Forsyth, IL. Decatur Area Convention and Visitors Bureau helped host a disc golf tournament last fall, Executive Director Teri Hammel said. She has been surprised at the surge in popularity of the activity.
